Waiting.......Waiting........Waiting.............. ........

Saturday, 7 am PDT, California Central Coast: the call comes from a lovely sounding truckette -

"We are calling about an 86 Porsche 930 we are transporting to you"

"Yes, ma'am, that's me"

"Will you be home on July 4th?" "Yes, I will!"

"Will you be home in the afternoon of July 3rd?" "Yes, I will!!!" ( hoping now for July 2nd)

"We will call you when we get close, either the 3rd or 4th." "Thank you!!!!!"

Pretty fast transportation from the Detroit area to Santa Maria, CA, I'd say.

Now I'm:

Waiting.......Waiting........Waiting.............. ........

Just played that game about a month ago. Here's a couple photos from the day it arrived, mis-matched wheels and all!

And not sleeping.....sleeping.....sleeping. Anticipation's a beetch, isn't it? Just think, you'll be like a kid in a candy store once it finally arrives!

Hope it makes it safe and sound. Those car carriers scare the crap outa me (used them more than once across country) - though I've had no problems with the transport.

Waiting is fine....I thought you were going to tell us that the conversation went south: "About that 930 we were transporting? It dissapeared off the truck last night" Hope it arrives TODAY.

Kevin:

Thanks for hoping! Is IS coming today!!

I am awaiting a call that they are in Paso Robles, which is about an hour from here.
I am meeting them at a small truck stop a few miles from my house.

They did not want to try to get to my house with their 85 foot rig.

More to come!

Awesome! Congratulations.

Am I the only one who noticed the 956/962? Whose car is that?

zakthor, nice. What color are they? Matching it looks like?

Take care!
