Default Porscheless- Sigh!

Having owned my 928 for 9.5 years it was a perpetual hate/love relationship.
BUT.. what other car would I've put up with so many problems for so many years? Honestly, none!
Unfortunately events have forced me to sell.

It was one of the top 2 cars I've ever owned and most importantly the acquisition and accumulation of it's sentimental value.


One day , not too far away-I hope- I will obtain another.
Thankyou to all the people that have helped me with my Motoring problems and just plain discussion on 'why' we own these buggers.

Thanks all.

damn
everything changes.

Hi Mike..........hopefully your car went to a good new owner and you'll back very very soon.

Hopefully other matters are being resolved also.

Bon chance mon ami.

Don't be a stranger Mike. Sad to see you go. It is you, with all your experiences good and bad, that you have been there, done that, that have given us hope and encouragement to keep going with a sometimes tempermental beast! Hope you are back here soon with another shark, and we can return in kind the help and expertise that you have shown us!

Hi Mike:

I'm sorry to hear you had to give up your shark. But I'm sure you'll be back soon.

All the best, and don't be a stranger here!

Hope everything works out ok, and that you find you're way back to a 928 in the future.

Have to ask, though, what was the other car that rated with the 928 for you?

Mike, you have more important things to worry about than a car. Someday, when you have everything in order and calmed down, you can get back in the saddle. Till then, best of luck and hang in there.

Ah yes, a great car, one you don't see too often. I've always liked those as well.
