    This Thursday evening Andy will be joined Live on Instagram by friend and world renowned Porsche collector Frank Cassidy.
    They’ll chat Oval Beetles, his preference for buying beaten up, high mileage Porsche projects and how his Stuttgart flavoured business park ‘Boxengasse’ came to be a reality.
    Tune in at 6pm BST on @driveheritage Instagram Live.  We will also be posting the video on our Facebook page if you can't make the live chat. 
     
    In the meantime you can have a look at our interview with him here: Making The Perfect Pitstop

    I love them. And recently purchased one with less than 20k on the clock. And in near new condition. 
    Used to own a turbo. I have a soft spot for the 996.

    Hi all at PFA, 
    Established in 1986, we have a team of over 80, many who have worked with us for more than ten years and live and breathe the car enthusiast lifestyle, building an unrivalled knowledge of air cooled and water-cooled VW and Porsche along the way.
    When it comes to selling and producing our parts the benchmark is very clear: Would we be happy using and fitting these parts ourselves, to our cars?
    Spending our spare time maintaining, modifying and restoring VW and Porsche vehicles we understand what is required of a part with regards to quality and aesthetics, and we use this knowledge to ensure we provide our customers with the very best parts available to help with their projects.
    Located on the South Coast of England, we are perfectly placed to offer parts for VW and Porsche vehicles from manufacturers in the UK, Europe and Asia as well as supplying components from select sources in USA and South American too. We are a one stop shop for your specialist parts requirements. We have a network of trusted shipping partners that help us deliver our services to enthusiasts all around the world. We send our products fast and fully insured to our customers, with them often arriving quicker than ‘coast to coast’ internal shipments.
    Here is a link to our website Heritage Parts Centre 
    We aim to keep you up to date with our products, magazine articles and anything else of interest on the forum, and hopefully when we can come and visit the Australian Porsche scene first hand.  Hanger Banger looked amazing, great selection of cars.   
    Why not have a look at our social media as well if you haven't already.

    I particularly agree with Hugh and Nikos comments above.

    If PFA has taught me anything it is:
    1.   You are buying the seller as much as the car.
    2.   Buy the best car you can afford, as you end up spending way more in the long run to get a scruffy one up to a high standard if you are that way inclined.
    3. G series cars seem to be able to hide high KM far better than any other brand. They can still be tight and playful even well over 200,000km.
     
    Without wanting to start a PFA riot (and absolutely no offence to anyone), any discussion around “worth” on SC / 3.2 cars is pretty difficult. They are like a pretty cool artist who used to sell his paintings for $2,000 and then became really popular and they start selling for $5,000. Will they stay at $5,000 and when they drop to $4,000 does that make them “good buying”  and good value?
    Discussions on car value are pretty easy in a traditional start high then depreciate to low scenario. It is a pretty rare phenomonem for a car to be going up in value.
    80% of these cars are “toys” rather than daily drivers. If you can afford to take a $120k punt on a toy then do it, they are fabulous fun cars full of charm and character and arguably a thing of beauty. If you can’t afford to have the “value” readjust itself to $70k then don’t buy one (ack. It could also go to $200k) as we are heading into uncharted waters in terms of the economy.
