I was going to take to Don's Auto works in Campbell. Been using his for 15 years now, but hear nothing but good things about RMG.

Have you seen this one?

This is one with the same kind of mileage that you are talking about and no repainting. From everything I have heard, this guy is real straight shooter and not your typical used car salesman. Apparently a lot of guys from here have purchased from him. Best of luck in your search.

It's all about the condition I'd say. What was it worth new? This one looks new to me. In any case I am sure that there is some negotiating built into this.

Everything went well with the PPI, so just got her home a hour ago. I became a little kid again. Here's a few pics before my son comes home and will be busy the rest of the night. Thanks everyone for their input.

Luckyman. Congrats. U got yrself one of a kind car. Low miles, one owner, Arena red (color 993tt was first introduced to public, and in posters!! back in 1995), not to mention local purchase = no hassle, quick resolution/deal....what else! can anyone ask for!!

With respect to all other colors, cars, including my own - you got yourself a true CLASSIC 993TT.

Ed. Would you mind my asking: how did you stumble upon this ONE :-) Local paper listing, word of mouth, website, etc.

Reason I ask: usually quite rare to have such a find (collector car) in major publications, websites, media. Thnx.

My buddy found it on Craigslist and told me about it. I was not the first Rennlister to view the car. The seller showed the car 2 weeks ago before my purchase, but left town for a week and didn't respond to any emails. I believe I was the lucky one that was picked, fate. Like the lottery, LOL.
