New car in my stable!

Made the purchase on Monday!
I'm now the proud (very proud) owner of one Arena Red 1996 Porsche 993 TT.

Thanks to Mike Lindblad who drove me down on Sunday in his Carrera and spent the day with me checking everything out.

More Thanks to Dan and Larry Gyra for meeting us for lunch and all their help in checking out the car.... Dan's got a great 993 for sale too.

I was very impressed with the service that Mark gave me at Auto Trader Garage (www.autotradergarage.com), very professional, extremely honest and well organized. Every car on their lot is in immaculant condition! Across the road from Weissach, check them out and say hi; everyone there drives a Porsche too!

Thanks also to the posters last week, my mechanic Frank Winterlik and yes; my wife.... who gave me her full blessing! ha ha! Gotta love that women!

We'll see you guys out on the road......... I'll be there alot in the next month!!
Cheers,
Rob

Way to go Rob, glad it all worked out. So I guess you feel a slight difference on the butt-dyno eh?

That must be one of the most desirable models in all of 911-dom, congrats. I would love to know what that kind of power must feel like! She looks fantastic.

Rob, SWEET machine!

You're gonna have to be real careful with that accelerator pedal now!

Come and meet us in Lillooet on Sun Oct 14.

Sorry, can't make it, as much as I'd love to. Heading out of town for a week on bidness, and have to get ready and spend some quality time with Liz.

Put 5,000 Kms on the car in the past two weeks....... gotta love it; too bad it's almost time to park it for the winter. The Coq Hwy got a foot of snow today, so its climbing its way towards us here at the Shuswap!

Snuck my car onto the 18th T-Box at the brand new Talking Rock Golf Course at the Little Shuswap Lake today.... nice photo op:

Cheers,


Taken from the course this past summer:


Kent, Jenny, Lynn & Rob
