Tom, absolutely, it was great to see you too! I remember being 16 adoring the Iris Blue 911 at the end of the street. Congrats to you too, on the 930.

Chris, definitely have a story. It's really cool actually. I have known the previous owner for 11 years. He has owned the car since 1993. A very good high school friend of mine's dad. He let me drive it a few times when I was 17, 18, 19, etc, back in the day. I told him back then I wanted to buy it from him someday. He said when he wanted to sell I would have first shot. Skip ahead a decade (and 700 miles/year) to three weeks ago, he calls me and gives me first dibs. A man of his word. The rest is history!

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. I uploaded all the other pictures to: http://picasaweb.google.com/mergedplot

As far as the color code, I don't recall and the car is not currently in my garage to go out and look -- my dad is babysitting it until he can trailer it up here for me. His Expedition tows a bit more then my Honda Pilot. But the color is "Platinum Metallic".






One of my favorite shots...
