I'm baaaaaaaack... redeux

Heyowdy gentz...

Long time no 930folk!

Last you'd heard of idjutme, I'd popped back in here last fall to say HEY as I was back into a Porsche again... I'd previously sold my beloved 930 back in November 2012 to buy my S600 (biturboV12 Just Not Rightedness!) - which at the time seemed like the right thing to do.

I'd picked up a sweet Arena / Grey 993 cab last summer to join the 600 and enjoyed the beejeezus out of it for 5k miles and said "hey!" here then, as it'd been nearly a year since I'd sold my 930 and I was away from this forum. Missed you fukkerz.

Well... I just loaded my 600 onto a trailer to its new owner after 1.5yrs and 22k WOT miles (I should really REALLY be in jail). Straight from the files of you just can't make this shart up... I... I... I...

...just...

boughtbackmy930!!!

***WOOT***

8-)

Guess you can call it Destiny? Literally hours after posting my 993 online for sale, I get an email from the guy in Toronto I'd sold my car to asking if I still had the text/pics from the for sale ad from when he'd bought the car. Weird. And I knew what that meant.

I'd been surfing for rod'ish Carrera 3.2s or SC's to replace the 993 (a really great car but thought I wanted something a bit more raw / visceral). So I figured I should probably at least ASK what he'd sell it back to me for.

Best part?

He'd only put 100mi on it... seems he's an avid Ducati owner and when the short Torontonian "good season" was upon him, he found himself riding his bikes. Cover's only been peeled back 5x.

Bestest part?

The discount I bought it back at - muwhahahaaaa 8-).

I'm coordinating shipment now, should be back home within a few weeks. Picked up an e39 ///M5 for my daily, should make for quite the fun pair.

This time, I'm hoping to hang on to it. The night it left:





Happy to be back amongst the insanity, and with good friends once again. Seems a bit quiet (er, boring) around here these days (I lurk occassionally)... I'll try and spice things up once again heh heh...


ps. shhhhhhhhhhh, don't tell my boy... it's a SURPRISE! He was a bit miff'd when I sold it, he's gonna flip that it's back 8-).

Welcome back. I just did the opposite with my bikes. I sold all but one of them so that I can finish my build on the 930 this year.

It seems that so many sell 930s only to come full circle and eventually end up back in one. They are like a good drug or a crazy woman, you know they are a bad idea but they are just too much fun to ignore.

Welcome back.

Hey PaulK!!! This must be April fools joke....right??? If yes...then you are so BANNED from here for joking!! That'll be cruel. If not then you are so BANNED from here for selling!!

I'll take back the last part. Anyhow, welcome back you lucky man! We missed you here. Your son will be the happiest boy in the world when he sees his 930 back. You gotta realize everything you own he think it's his. In a way it's true...it's the memory that is his.

M5 and 930...what a great combination! They are so opposite from each other.

So you bought back your 930 from the guy who stored it for you at a cheaper price? Why Haven't I thought about doing this!

Welcome back, as I know exactly how you feel! I sold my 930 several weeks ago and I sorely miss not having one around. I sold her because I never drove her and she just sat for months in the garage. I looked at a 997 turbo a couple weeks ago and almost bought it, but there was just something I didn't like about it. The car was too easy to drive. Then I remembered a friend had his 77 930 for sale and I sent him an e-mail. Just need to speak to his mechanic and have mine take a look at the car.

Mernin gang!

Man, what a way to start my day today... thanks all for the warm welcome home! It's good to be back in a 930, MY 930, and back witchyouseses alls!

Jesper... your reply slayed me - love it!

MikeD! HA! April Fewlz!!!

Na mon... 'tis the truth. Tho after I posted that it DID dawn on me that you guys would probably think it's some warped April Fool's joke. Too funny.

All this all unfolded a few weeks ago, process was delayed a bit due to my stoooopidity (it's eternal) so I had to hold out on outing mahself. Linc, thanks fer keepin my secret heh heh. Only Jacob, Peteski, and FRANK knew otherwise. Frank because, thebastid... he's trying to get me to buy his PnP EFI. Things that make ya go hmmmmm 8-).

So yeah, I've bought and sold and bought back my 930 and poor Linc's still waiting on his. SO GREAT to see tho that you're goin there this week. Chris did some really really impressive work, you're going to be ecstatic. We're all on the edge of our seats.

COLESTER! Dewd... I'm 1/2 tempted to jump in my car and head West 'till I hit you just to hear you crack that thing over. Or did I miss it's cherrypop? Please tell me I didn't!

BrianB! Turbopalooza... jahmon! Kinda sorta the reason I reshuffled the fleet... having 2 uber cars is great and all but not when yer slave to just ownin them. Now my mod / event budget's returned. Good stuff.

Tate, good sir! Doodmon, I'm verymuch trying to hit WGVF come Sept... be tits if you'd join us. My client is Duntov Motors (do the Vette Duntov Special repro's) and I'm angling again for crew passes 8-). We'll see, but regardless keep in touch on that thought.

So yeah, at the time my //S8 was on it's last legs and I thought I needed an ultimate daily car - and the 930 was a quick way to do that - figured I'd BTDT w/ the 930 after 4yrs, but definitely suffered some seller's remorse. Don't believe in regret so I just rolled w/ it, until the day that email hit. Weird stuff.

///M5's been a HOOT... great story how I found it, guy 2mi up the road from me I knew from my boy's Cub Scouts had a green one (rare, like 238 imported) and then my dealer bud tells me he scored a green one @ auction when I was looking for a C55. Hmmm I say, has to be the car in town. Yup. Took a few weeks to sort it back to glory, delayed pickup... ended up picking it up literally ON my 40th bday. Go figure? Getting old's never been so good.

Weirdazz sheet, all this. Meant to be I guess. Heh, I just booked a DE @ Lime Rock in a couple weeks to get to know it. Better yet, What's Her Face scored me a Skip Barber Formula day this Thurs... I'm jazzed. Good stuff on all fronts.

Here's crappy pics of the ///M5 since I know many you gamers here dig 'em:

FRANNNNNNNNNNNK!

heh, damn you! 8-) Car's not even here yet! Yeah tho, reach out to me (not reach around) as you progress and we'll go from there. You know how to find me.

Thanks for the thought Brad... and totally agreed. Goes along exactly w/ Cole's summation... if you're a 930dork, you just cannot deny yourself the indulgence. Resistance is futile!

I knew it was a matter of time; as I told you then... "you'll be back".

There is no substitute!
