Just to put one more thing to rest....

the previous owner of the car was the owner/inventor of the porsche "magbra" that have been selling for porsches since (I believe) 1980.... the guy is really of the "mad-scientist" but "hip" kind of mold. Alot of fun to talk to and hang out with.

I just wanted to make sure with him I could post that before I actually did....b/c some of you might know him...

(so, not really a big "secret" - but that concludes this thread....I think!)




ps: he shuns the new clear plastic people are putting on their cars ...saying they are too expensive, and while good for protecting from road "grime"....not good at all for protecting against rocks....his words...and he has tests to show it....however this is a moot issue since he has stopped the magbra company just bc he did not have the time to continue it.

I've met him before at the Office Depot store near my house. He's a very, very nice guy. He had a Doberman sitting in the passenger seat of his 993 and saw me checking his car out. The car looked to be a a decent daily driver that was in nowhere near the sad shape of the car Andreas and I saw up in Jersey. As it turns out, a friend of mine was recently hired by him to be the company's new either CEO or CFO (can't recall which one).

BTW, I didn't have the heart to tell him that I had Chuck Moreland's Elephant Racing Track Skin magnetic "bra" on my car.

Not surprising, Vic, they don't have annual inspection in MD.

Bingo! This is how I got my C2 cab three years ago (for $17K).
