Default Looking for an old friend

When I was growing up my dad owned a 1996 993 Turbo in Arctic Silver. Going on weekend drives and trips up to Road America for PCA and IMSA events made this car a big part of my childhood and inspired my love of cars, racing, and all things Porsche. Unfortunately, we had to sell the car while I was still pretty young. I have spent the last year or two looking around seeing if I could find where it may have ended up in my spare time. I ran the VIN using Carfax and found that it was last titled in Dodson, MT, a small town in the Northeast of Montana. Of course, it is possible that the car is just titled there and lives elsewhere, but I am reaching out to the local PCA group for the region to ask if they might know anything as well. I have attached the Carfax report and the VIN is WP0AC2999TS376147. If anyone has any information or ideas of people I might be able to contact I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

Good luck to you, I hope you’re able to find and acquire the Porsche.

might be worth a call or 2 to an import repair shop in the town if there is such a thing or in the nearest town big enough to have one to see if they know of the car or can provide a lead

That's a good call, probably a pretty small Porsche community out there in North-East Montana. Thank you!

When you google image search the vin, a bunch of pictures come up... looks like Paul Motor Co. had the car at one point. It sure looks awesome in the photos.

Oh my gosh, that's great. I'm going to call them today to see if they know anything about where it might be now. Thank you so much!
