Alvin got screwed badly on that whole deal. I know a LOT more than I care to reveal online. Needless to say I would heed Pirahna's advise.
wow, how unscrupulous can one be, especially with someone spending THAT much money with you in the first place? unbelievable. but then again i guess not.

Imo these were better days back then...all about the cars, the drives, the MODS! Wasn't all about increasing values, flippers chasing cars, how's the market for 911s, what's my car worth, blah blah blah.
The surge in value imo has had a real impact on where a majority of these cars have ended up.... less in the true enthusiasts hands.

Better days back then.....

OP go screwed on this and every time I saw this car for sale after I thought how bad a tuner "S car go" must be to screw someone this bad on a build....

Can't agree more on how the flavor of RL has changed over the years.

Nevertheless, still the best Porsche forum out there, imo.

Miss those days. FB barely existed, IG wasn't even conceptualized yet, the housing bubble had yet to burst and inexpensive 993's were abundant. We should have a special "where are they now" thread! I've been here for almost 10 years and have made some great friends along the way. Some I communicate with daily, others not so often but we still keep in touch. The pre collectible days of the 993 were quite special.

You said a mouthful. Been thinking the same thing for the past few years.
