Default back in garage


Got my new to me gt3 back from the shop. Did some baseline maintenance type stuff. New fluids and new tires - gave the car its first proper flogging today

Back in the garage with its grandpa!

Great pic! I honestly love 996's in black. Is the early car an original color? What is it called? Really cool looking!

Thanks!

Old one is a 1971 911T repainted its original Pastel Blue. I bought it from the original owner's family.

Thoroughly enjoying the 6gt3!!

Super cool! I've had a hankering for an air cooled for some time now. Need to ditch the lambo and get a nice early car (or keep the lambo and get an SC or Carrerra 3.2).

Black is a bitch to maintain if you're picky with paint, but it's hard to look past on these cars. Enjoy!

Love the SC. How do you like it? I hear they are super fun to drive and feel faster than their 190-200hp would suggest. I'd love to find one that needs a little tlc and bring it back to life over time, lighten it up a bit, and take it to the track occasionally!

Default SC

SC is awesome drive it as a dd when its not below 40. Even use it to drive my son to hockey practice!

The SC makes you work to get the most out of it, and at legal speeds, the gt3 on the street around chicago just asked for trouble but we drive it plenty anyhow. Perfect pairing for gt3. I highly recomend it. No track duty for this sc however, chasis like chewing gumand wife would kill me!

Buy an air cooled car youll love it just as much, my kid does! Oh and the mileage is real and documeted!

cheers!

Been there done that. Wish I still lived there. House I sold in '03 for stupid money ('50s Ranch 1800 sq ft) shows on Zillow current market price at 4 times what I sold it for.....
