  1. No such thing as a cheap 944, just cheap to purchase as others will attain too. The thing is a good well sorted car is bloody awesome. I did a run up the Oxley Hwy about a month ago, had a guy in a V2 V8 Monaro holding me up all the way up the mountain despite his best efforts. If mine was a turbo I would have rounded him up and waved good buy. He was part of the group I was driving with and had little to say in our talks through out the day. 😎 I have had thoughts of selling my 944 but I don't think I can actually do it.
  2. For those that may be interested, there may be a Black 86 NA 2.5 Lt 944 on the market soon. Its had lots of $$$$ spent on it, in all the right areas. Just saying if anyone is looking for a nice 944.

  7. On the way home from around near Foster to Nabiac it was pissing down, around Taree area, there were some roofs taken off buildings. Visibility was down to about 20m for some time. It was pretty bad. Found my cab to be very water proof , spotted some guys on motor bikes that were not to happy with their situation.

  15. Nice article https://flatsixes.com/cars/porsche-944-cars/this-1986-944-turbo-just-sold-for-74000-is-it-a-sign-of-things-to-come/ THIS 1986 944 TURBO JUST SOLD FOR $74,000: IS IT A SIGN OF THINGS TO COME? 2/8/20198:44 ESTFILED TO: PORSCHE 944BY: CHRIS CUSHINGCOMMENT Has the 944's time finally come? The model's popularity has led to a steady upward creep in prices in recent years, and this recent BAT result may just be the tip of the iceberg. Indeed, even Jerry Seinfeld is getting in on the action, having just acquired a black Turbo and this S2 Cabriolet. This 5k-mile 1986 Turbo just smashed Bring a Trailer's auction record for the model, doubling the previous top result for a 944 Turbo, and besting the previous top 944 sale by more than $30k. At $74k, this Pearl White coupe has reached beyond the model's typically-modest pricing, and well into territory normally occupied by low-mile Supra Turbos, Ferrari 328s, and well-optioned 993s. Photo from Bring a Trailer This result is the latest in a streak of increasingly impressive results for the model. Recent results from other auction houses, including an impressive $72,600 result at Gooding & Co's Monterey sale, have approached the result achieved on BAT. According to the included original window sticker the car originally sold for $33,600, meaning that over three decades the car more than doubled its original sticker price, and roughly kept pace with inflation. Photo from Bring a Trailer Credit is due to the seller's exceptionally thorough approach. While BAT sellers are generally very thorough, with galleries often creeping beyond 150 images, this seller went above and beyond with over 400 images. Everything from paint meter readings, to the stampings inside the included set of color-keyed Fuchs wheels were documented. It is pretty clear that this is an exceptional 944 Turbo. Interestingly, this car came from the same town as the Utlimate Enthusiast Garage featured here in 2017, though it was not owned by the same person. It's pretty clear, however, that this car lived an extremely pampered life. While aficionados may argue about the merits of this first-year Turbo compared to the later cars, we challenge anyone to find another comparable Turbo of any year. The real question with this car is whether to keep the phonedials on the car, or mount up those deliciously-'80s Pearl White Fuchs. Photos from Bring a Trailer LLC used with permission.
  16. Hi Justin How would you find what spine you need without having to pull one out. Would be interested, just need to find out what my car has. Cheers Rickie
  17. I also work from home, so needed good reliable power. Do like to idea of it being hooked up to the gas line though. Ideal if you already had gas hooked up.
  18. When we lived on acreage, we used a Honda backup generator, would run almost every thing in the house. One tank of fuel last about 15 hours on Eco mode. PC, Fridges, TV etc, etc It got lots of use, we used to get power outs all of the time.
  19. Have these if you are still looking, in 18 tho

  21. Have to say I did not even see the backdrop. Had jaw drop though.
