What are things that I need to look for? is a '86 is a good year for the 928? how reliable the engine/drivetrain is compared to a G body 911?

Thanks in advance.
I bought my 86 928 that had 37,800 miles on it. The car sat for many years. It was a one owner. Any car that sits a long time is going to need some attention. I suggest you read up on all the service comments people have made on this site. There is a wealth of information here on Pelican. Most of your questions have been answered by members here.
