Default 928 Proud new owner

Hey People, long time fan and now the proud owner (s), I ended up getting 4 928's from an estate sale in CAL. 1 was my GTS and the other 3 were S4's. 87, 88, 90. They were all running except the 88 (timing belts were in the process of rebuild). The 90 is sweet, every option known to man! My GTS has 100k miles and so far so good. Woo hoo!!! Thanks to my friend Kirt, (in pictures) we were able to get this find and get them all home and hopefully 3 of them sold soon.

Welcome! That's quite a haul of cars! Where in CA are you? Bring one (or more) to Sharktoberfest on 10/16 and meet your fellow addicts...

Awesome! WISH I WERE YOU!!!!!

Good luck with the process. I'm assuming you're keeping the GTS.... I'd be tempted to keep more than one...

Thanks for the replies. the deal was posted on craiglist. I was the second caller and I told the trustee selling off the estate that Id take em' all. So, after them being online for probably 4 hours (because anyone would have bought them site unseen for the price I got :-)), the deal was on.
The gentlemen who owned them lived up in Sonoma. Sadly he died of cancer. I plan on keeping the GTS, but I still have my eye on the 90. It is a sweet ride. They all are sweet, all are 5 speeds, except the 90, so for that reason I may keep the GTS. Not sure yet.
Thanks for the warm welcome.
I live in UTAH, so... probably wont make it out, maybe next year to sharkfest. My friend Kirt will probably be there... he lives in San Ramon and is a long time site member.
Thanks.

Keep the GTS AND the 90. That way you'll have a sweet 5 speed AND auto. There are times when the auto is prefered.

Now that'll get you in trouble Wayne !!


Need to add a big Thank You to Bill Ball as well, for advising via phone how to get the GTS back on the road after the shifter ball cup popped off --> Wayne's already experiencing the value of the Rennlist forum!!

Oh, and Tom the GTS is a '93.

Okay, I gotta ask. How much for all 4? We talk price here so it really isn't a big taboo or anything.
Please don't make us cry!
