Tommy, I'm really glad that you and your fiance are driving the SC home. It will be a great trip! One tip that will sound really obvious is to make sure that you know the proper way to check the oil. Not just idling, but idling up at normal operating temperature. There is a big difference on the dipstick and the oil level gauge between cool oil and oil at normal temperature and it's easy to overfill the system if you check it when its too cool. And, most of us who have had our 911's for a while like to run with the oil level at the mid point of the stick or lower. You sure don't want the stinky, smoky experience of over filled oil! I did just that when I picked up my 964 in 2004, and I will never forget that stink!
