Default Long time, I'm selling one, looking to buy another

Its been forever since I have posted! I hope everyone is well. Some may remember that I fell in love with the 356 model at Luft, sold my pristine 98 c2s, and built/restored a show level 356. It was featured by Porsche in their historic timeline display at Rennsport. I am enjoying it a lot, and it isn't for sale :-)

But I am selling my magazine-featured 1959 VW Transporter. https://rennlist.com/forums/market/1124116
It is a concours level restoration, top 1%. June 2016 Hot VW magazine multi page spread. I have it priced to sell at $45k, a little negotiable, but not much. I will do a deeper discount for active duty military.

Also back on the hunt for a mint 993 or 964, looking for the best of the best, please PM or email with any leads! thanks [email protected]

What are some of the must-haves or nice-to-haves in a 993 you seek?

How many 993s have you already owned over the years that matched all these requirements? ^^^^^^

I always look forward to the inevitable "Mr S is looking for a new 993" threads to see what they turn up. Good luck with the sale and the hunt!

You should be a pro by now. I'm sure you know where all the hunting grounds are. Maybe you can share a few with us.

Welcome back MS!! I remember your hunt for your first 993 way back when - probably 2005 'ish. Great post and love the 356 and VW. Good luck with the search.

Actually - they have almost all started with a post like this. Honest transparent communications. And realistic expectations of pricing for the hard to find versions. I loved everyone one of them. And as my wife says, she would rather I ôexperimentö with lots of different cars instead of women haha
