Numbers and facts are off, but good to know we are in a elite club of 964 owners. Nice to see the 964 getting so much praise. It wasn't long ago that only 87-89 was getting the real money and respect in this area. I knew I wasn't wrong at 17 yrs old in 1990 for loving the 964. I am obsessed. I also know the tank like build quality is why I didn't get a scratch when driving one into a tree. Car gone from front wheels forward. I would post pics but quite depressing. Anyways, onward and upward! Love the 964!

Greg, when I first stepped into my 964 after coming from sciracco's and jettas and lastly a 996 I was immediately and actually instantaneously hooked on the car. The difference was immeasurable. The opinion proved legit during one very cold winter when one of my old tires blew out during a morning commute. Any other car would have either shredded to pieces or flipped over and killed me but the rock solid 964 took several 360's with good standing and led me safely to the side of the jersey wall. I'd take a 964 over any car i've ever sat in. Hands down. Sound, feel, connection to elements. Amazing. standing applause and a tip to the hat

I feel the same way. The car saved me from myself to a degree. Should of been killed or very hurt. Not even a pulled neck muscle. The seat belt and air bag had a huge role in that. The car was wrecked hard. Hit a tree and a old stone cow wall. When I see people take out the airbag wheel, I cringe unless with racing harness.
Here are some sad photos. The good news is that as an organ donor, she helped to give life to another car with no motor or trans etc. I will not even say how fast I think the car was traveling. Motor has some scars on exhaust manifolds that don't effect anything, but can see how it slid over some rocks. Anyway…Sigh.

I can always try to keep you entertained, but lubricating my tach and speedo seals so they don't bunch up going in, prob isn't that interesting. Unless you find that funny. Want me to take a video of all my **** and cars in the garage? How about tales of my terrible ex? Latest conquests? Other car crash stories in my even more stupid youth? You guys let me know. I am here for your entertainment!
