    Stan. My name is Gary Moore, I bought the 85 ROW from you a few years back. I am interested in an auto, S3 or S4. Not so fond of clutches anymore.
    The car has not changed much, just turned 100,000 yesterday.
    If you have something or get something and would consider taking the 85 back in trade, please let me know.
    Color matters though.

    Hello Mr. Merlin/Stan. I recently purchased a 928 and wonder if you would be interested working on it. Car was featured on BAT: I am near Buffalo. Even though the car has some problems, the engine is strong and I have no problems driving this distance. If you are willing, I could leave the car with you for a few days while in NYC, and would plan around your schedule. I am also registered to attend the 928 meeting in the Adirondacks, in mid-June, so I hope to see you then.

    The known issues are: gears grinding (1st, 2nd and reverse); oil leak in/near the front of the engine; A/C does not function; surging idle; speedometer sometimes does not function, and the odometer is stuck at 89,500; Fog lights are out; outboard mirrors need adjustment to fit my viewing preference.

    I can wrench on my '69 Giulia, but this car is overwhelming to me, and I could really use your help.

    Thanks for your time, Paul

    Hi Stan - I have a question for you. I am trying to fix a case where the instrument backlights do not work on my 90 S4 when the parking or headlighs are turned on. It looks like the problem is with the fixed resistor that is mounted up above the brake pedal (in series with the BK/BL wire that leads to the cluster. Do you happen to know the what the resistance of that fixed resistor? Thanks,

    Hi Stan,

    I contacted you about 16 months ago for help regarding 2 issues on my 928. You were very helpful and saved me hours of filtering through the list. I am in the process of changing garages and have a s4 motor and a 84 parts car that I am looking at scrap price for. I bought it. Drove it to the garage and it has sat since then. Interior is entirely roached. It is a chassis with a motor and trans.
    The motor was frozen when I purchased it. Water down the intakes froze the rings. I disassembled the motor, freed my pistons. Bought a set of replacement pistons. That is where it sits. I noticed that the woodruff key was missing.

    Do you have any interest in these?
    Do you have interest in these? I can email pics if you like. Car and engine are located in Bridesburg/Kensington at the moment.

    Hello MrMerlin / Stan,
    My name is Mike and I registered to rennlist in order to contact you. I am a newb and have been spending a great deal of time admiring the 928 series of models. I have never owned a Porsche but have wanted one since I was a boy in the 80s. I don't know much and I don't know where to start. You seem to have a reputation of helpfulness and honesty. I'm reaching out to start a conversation that hopefully leads me to owning my first nice car.
    I'd supply my email in a private message so it's not in public domain, please let me know if you are open to an exchange and to help.
    Thank you,
