Finally. 18 months. Many Cars. 3 PPIs. Three States. One turned out to be crashed and loaded with bog. One was dribbling oil badly and had been painted in the owners garage. One I was a few hours too late to get the deposit down. I started looking at SCs. Vaguely considered 3.2s. Then started to have a closer look at the 964 and liked what I saw...(and my budget doubled from the beginning of my search). So in the last two months narrowed my search on the 'unloved 911'. I knew I'd missed a few good ones while I was looking at SC's, but ultimately there was three I narrowed it down to. So yes - The Carerra 2 listed on the PCV site (). The car itself is 'tired' (as described by someone else here). Weltmeister assessed that it is a 'good, solid, original car' it would cost about $10k to get it sweet. So the owner took that into account and we settled on a price I thought was reasonable. The reason I settled on a 'tired' car was because it seems to me the Carrera 2 is becoming more saught after in the market than the C4. I have no problem with a C4. In fact, I don't consider myself a great driver and the C4 would have been some kind of insurance against ham-fisted technique...The second reason was that most of the things that make it 'tired' were within reach of being fixed...in Matt from Weltmeister's words "All it needs is a birthday"... With a bit of interstate faffing-about, the car transferred ownership to me today. This morning it was dropped at AutoArt for a top-end rebuild, clutch, fly-wheel and a few other 'house-keeping' things to get it fresh. Getting new tires (thinking Michelins, the shops keep trying to talk me into Pirellis ??). Weltmeister said it didn't really need a top-end rebuild, but the leak-down numbers were between 10-12% and at 240,000km I figured it couldn't hurt while it's in there...it also made the clutch change a lot cheaper! Priorities for the car are to get it safe, mechanically sound and then getting it closer to stock. Especially that rear spoiler…Does anyone want a TechArt spoiler that probably better suits a 993? So I'll hopefully be picking it up the first weekend in December. I friend of mine also acquired DJM's doppelganger car and we'll be meeting up to compare our acquisitions....if anyone's interested in meeting for a coffee and a drive, I'll be spending some time that weekend breaking the engine in (so no highway driving for me that weekend!).
