So long all....

Been a blast for the past 12 years, but the 930 has gone to a new home.

Now I'm relegated to the 944 Turbo forum.....oh the humanity.

I'll still lurk around and poke my nose in here from time to time.

Mark,
The 930 forum will definitely miss your contributions.

Take care!

Rahl!

Glad you got your sale, hope you got your price!
No need to go, current 930 ownership isn't a prerequisite of forum participation!

Thanks guys, I still have a year here in country, before escaping over the big pond to hide in the jungle.

New owner is in Texas, but I don't want Rawknees to track him down and harass him, so that's all your getting out of me :}

The sale was all good, and going to a great guy.

No clue as to his plan.....but I think the less I know the better.

Of all the 44 cars I've owned so far, this is truly the only one I'll miss, but life moves on, situations change, and decisions are made.

I've spied a 1969 Toyota crown coupe in Bangkok that's for sale, and I don't think is going anywhere soon, seems to me it's just itch'n for a LS transplant :}

Congrats on getting it re-homed man. I second the 'you dont need to go anywhere' sentiment.

Mark - best wishes on your next phase of life. You’ll always be one of the few folks who understand what a 930 is like to own. 930 ownership is like the money in your wallet ... you don’t really “own” it as much as it’s your turn to spend it. Always liked your car. Drop in now and then!

Your car is bad-ass. The new owner is a lucky mofo.

Sad.

Time for someone else to take of her. I still think about my yellow 911.

Good luck sir
