I’m currently working on a full photo dump, but just in case it doesn’t get done this afternoon, I wanted to make sure I left this here...
My Porsche overheated the other day when I went to Dunkin Donuts, like it KNEW. So, I saved one of the Timbits Clown Shoe Pilot brought back from Canada as a peace offering.
Lancer got hit. Parsh is probably toast. I’m stuck with a rental I find deeply un-fun.
I did have only one fan not working on the 944. No big deal—it did the job unless I had to be stopped for a long time somewhere. Now I have two fans that don’t work. Both fans. All the fans on the car.
So you’ve decided you’re ready to derail your financial security and upset your significant other with a project car. You’ve got five grand to your name, and you daydream of bombing down back roads, banging gears and relieving some stress. You want a fun car that’s reasonably reliable, attractive, tuner friendly and…
Say you’re looking for a classic, cheap rear-wheel-drive sports car for cruising in the countryside over the weekend, or even whip out for the occasional track day session. You could get an old British roadster, but the headaches that come with those cars have pretty much turned you off by now. And besides, you’re not…
Have a Groupe B 944 concept. I want.
Man, I still need a Spec 944. Look at how happy my bunny is. Look!
“Is that a stock car?” the Tim Hortons server asked, which seemed a perfectly reasonable thing to say when a race car comes to a drive-thru in Kentucky. The little rally 944 wasn’t, but it was thoroughly awesome to make his day, regardless.
And I’m finding my very un-new 944 to be very very cool. I’ve been using my old toy as my commuter car the last couple of weeks and the more I drive it the more I like it! While my extremely comfortable, brand new SUV sit’s forlornly home in the garage all by it’self.
Dear fellow home mechanics, if you’re familiar with this particular fun project I welcome you to chuckle along. If you have yet to face it, fear not, it’s not fun, but it’s not nearly impossible and will make a yuuuuge difference in your driving experience (if your current bearings are anything like mine were). I’d…
Do you know that excitement when you bring home a new (old) car? You peeked, drove, listened, touched and smelled enough to build an immediate list of what she needed. You heard the P.O. tell you [at least some fraction of] what he thought might be what was wrong with it. Hell, you’ve done this plenty of times what…
Dis gud parsh.
It comes with its own YouTube video...
You know who’s had fun this year? My Puffalumps. (Me, too.) Here’s some of the things you wonderful people have done with my Puffalumps that have made me laugh the most.
While I’m a big fan of S2 bodywork, I really prefer the interiors of early 944s
I just found this on Ottawa Kijiji. It is (was?) a 1985 Porsche 944. The seller calls it a Combination Car, which is news to me.
