Congrats! Trailing you by about 8 years--start year 33 in July, just after I turn 50. Ugh?

Congratulations. My first was a 66 912 bought in 1968 .

What color was your '72 T I had one in Signal Orange that I sold in 1975 because of military move orders. I still regret parting with it. Many since then. current crop for this retired guy are a 2012 Boxster Spyder. 2010 Cayman (somewhat modified for autocross) Cayenne for towing and my pride, a '83 Euro Spec SC that has the IROC look and nicely improved as a track toy. The SC is a keeper as long as I can drive. I must also admit the Spyder is the most fun car, right out of the box, that I have driven

Jack hope we can both enjoy our toys for many more years

The '71 T was Signal Orange, the Euro '72T (the 1972 RoW T's had carbs instead of MFI) was Tangerine.

If I ever decide to sell my current 911 I'll probably replace it with a one option (A/C) Cayman R but I'll wait for the upcoming 981 version and will order it myself since the 99.9% of the dealer ordered ones tend to have $10K in silly options that I don't want.

I had an early Boxster and liked it a lot. It was way more fun to drive than the 996 that I just never bonded with.

The most entertaining to drive 911 I had was the silver '72 911E. It was a low option car with just sport seats and S trim and a tinted windshield. No radio, no A/C...just like my current one.

I wonder where it is today? The VIN is 9112200890

Wow, how rough can a 67 330 be when it's only 5 years old? Ah, to have been around back in the day...

Great recollections, thanks for sharing and may you have many more years with the current rides, wish I could say I bought my first 911 that many years ago (going on "1")!
