    hugh got a reaction from 901er in Whats for sale (in Australia ) and interesting Thread   
    If you use the reference of a "Singer" to describe a car that isn't a Singer, it unfortunately doesn't add credibility. In reality, it does the opposite by making a comparison that will make any non-genuine Singer look like the much poorer cousin of the genuine article. 
    If on the other hand it was compared to a STD 964 it could be seen as potentially enhanced (and I'd argue it has an appeal).

    Gave the grey rims a spray with "Liquid Chrome" hahhaha yeah right. About as chrome as a mild polished alloy mixed with ol skool silver frost. I knew it'd come out like that and I'm really happy with it! Little outing around to Dbah for a photo op

    had a private tour last year. The craftsmen ship in that place is incredible. Work ethic of Emory is second to none. Guy is a true gent - took us around his place for at least an hour the night before Luft. Was then up until 5am prepping his cars....

    Here's another great article on HB2 by 911 Kuhlture...I mean me...  Seriously though, I've just started an online blog/magazine hoping to cover all the fun stuff going on in the Australian Porsche community. Check it out if you've got a spare moment.

    When I was at HB, apparently some one had asked the film crew and they were told April. Can not remember if they were told a date.

    Many more pics of Project Iris Blue on my Instagram @drivenbytaste.
    Australian delivered (Melbourne where I bought her but had her shipped back to Western Australia) iris blue with dove grey interior. 
    She is only being offered up for possible sale as a bit of a dream car has come up that I would likely buy if I had some garage space.
    Please make no mistake, I am not desperate to sell Project Iris Blue as she is my current favourite back road driver. In line with this I am not looking for low ballers or tire kickers. I will only sell her if the price is right, otherwise will continue to enjoy her till the day I drop dead.
    Mileage approximately 180k km though engine work has been done during her life to rejuvenate her already (file with most of her history provided) though there are some gaps I couldn't fill but willing to let her have any  inspection at buyers cost including leak down, compression etc. She drives and presents very very well. All the more so when her age is considered. 
    Currently road registered in Western Australia and looked after by Ktec Autohaus (also stored in their facilities), the car has had a recent full transmission rebuild at no expense with RS pinion to tighten the ratios, has RS short shift, lightweight flywheel, rechipped ecu, RS pulley, adjustable engine mounts, bilstein shocks with eibach springs, now has a Momo Prototipo on her, Recaro Pole Positions upholstered to match original dove grey interior with iris blue painted rears, very tight engine, Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires (less than 700km on them) sitting on original 16 inch 993 cup rims as I wanted a more street rod look, by pass pipe to give thst extra bit of music but no drone and not obnoxiously loud... I am middle aged after all. Also still have the original seats in very very good condition as well as steering wheel if so desired to keep her looking original. 
    If you are after a hugely satisfying back road driver, this is the one with all the right bits on her. Nothing showy about her, paint is not utterly perfect but will pass any visual inspection well...
    She is all about the driving experience. And truly the best driving car of my small collection of 911s. The only reason she has been selected for possible sale is that the others are all a bit limited edition compared to her.
    Please message me if genuinrly interested. Much thanks.

    Onya Pete, yes definitely a feel good experience for the Porsche-a-file.  Just a rev-heads dream Xmas!!🚘
    As a passive participant it was so nice but as an organiser, I bet there was a lot of stuff to arrange to make this baby happen. Australia’s luftgekukkt (whatever)? Hope so.... upto the HB Gods to keep us posted...

    Just did another round of the Vic alps in mine. What a car, couldn’t imagine a more enjoyable car for that sort of driving made by anyone, Porsche included. 1264 kms in 2.5 days taking in Mts Buller,Buffalo, Hotham and falls creek, and the only thing sore is my jaw from smiling so much
