Smile New owner!!!!

Just wanted to say thanks to all for replying to my questions over the past months. The result is my money going to Oregon tomorrow for a GP White '89 930. I'll post images when the car gets here in a couple of weeks.

Let the (simple) modifications parade begin....first up....good bye body colored wheels....hello Lindsey P2s....not sure when that will happen though.

Thanks again!!!
Scott

Congratulations!!! I don't think you can go wrong with an '89.

Congrats on a great find.

I remember that feeling right before I picked mine up. Or in your case delivered.

The waiting almost killed me. I just couldn't wait.

Have fun!

Thanks for all the well-wishes. I'm excited to see the car (had it PPI'd and had my brother inspect it in person). Honestly, I'll tell you all that I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that it is my first Porsche. I really hate regret so decided to get the car I want the first time.

One issue I've struggled with from the beginning is that I live in a very small, rural town (4,300 people) and will posses the only running P-car here. I'll be curious to hear the comments made as I have tried hard to keep a low profile since moving here 8 years ago....there is no real anonymity in a town this small. I'm not big on apologizing for doing no wrong but work in our town's small hospital w/ patients daily. Patients seem to know plenty about me before I introduce myself. I'll be asked about it as soon as word gets out and am leaning toward remaining humble and telling them that I'm very fortunate to have such a car. Anyone else had to explain such things to strangers before?

Just tell them you had to chose between the Porsche and heroin addiction, and although the Porsche will be slightly more expensive, you decided it was healthier.....

Remind them that it is an 19 year old car that cost less than their 2007 truck.

That never works! They go "oh, but it's still a Porsche!"

I don't even bother to drive my fun stuff to work... they just wouldn't understand. Oh, and I live in a rather large metropolitan area!

Have fun and enjoy it!!

The 930 is my first Porsche too. It's the car I've lusted after for over 30 years so that's what I got. Plus I like tons of hp .

I find most people think these cars are worth a lot more than they are. The first day I drove my 930 to work I heard that one of my coworkers was asking other coworkers how I could afford an $80K car on my engineer's salary. Once I tell people I only paid $22K for it, they don't think I robbed a bank or worse yet, get paid too much. Obviously an '89 is worth more than my '79, but it's probably worth less than the general public thinks it is. What I do try to keep quiet is how much I spent to rebuild the engine and add EFI, but that's just so they don't think I'm a fool .

I just tell 'em that the only way I could afford it is because it's a 20 year-old car. Most people seem to understand.
