^^^ She made me turn the AC off. Too Cold! I ran with the AC on low speed at highest temp with my window down to make her happy.
It was the least I could do after what she did for me.

Well, the AC was probably making her right ear and cheek really cold when she was warming "deez nutz"...

When the bumper is off fixing the warped and cracked smile have them put the headlight washers on the correct sides. Yours are switched.
Notice how the left side is facing to the right of the headlight toward the fender.
Good eye.If you cross your eyes they look perfect.

Word around the campfire is that considering it's Deez were talking about, the wifey's ear would only have be subject to Arctic temps for about a minute or so!

Thats a lot. I mean where to drive to?

There are only so many places I can drive..

I did manage to get a rock chip this year.

OK, Here I go again!!! Bought my car in 2006 with 34K, I have 135K on it now. I live in SC. Routinely drove it from SC to DC twice a month for a while. Then I took a longer trip from SC > Maine > Vermont, down thru the Adirondack Mountains and back to SC (3500miles). There are some Saturday's when my wife and I would get in the car early in the morning drive up to the Mountains in NC, drive along the parkway, eat dinner, then drive back home, just a quick 1200 mile day trip. Oh and get this, I don't change my oil every 100miles, when I am doing a lot of Hwy driving, I go 5000 miles. Then I send it off for analysis just for kicks, and it always comes back "Continue to use". I don't leak oil, and I rarely smoke on startup. My Front Bumper and Valance look like it's been sandblasted!

When I first bought it, I did watch every mile for a while, then I just said WTF, I am not going to let this car turn into a Garage Queen, I am going to enjoy this car and not stress over the miles, and I have been all smiles since that day.


I am sad to say that I have lost all the mileage marks on the front end, as last year while at the movies, someone backed into it, and damaged the Pass Side Flare. I spent several months (9) debating on repairing or replacing, and decided on replacing with factory fender from Germany, so car has been at the bodyshop getting the front half of the car painted. When I pulled the fender, I found some minor surface rust, so I pulled the other one, cleaned up the surfaces, and rehung with a few screws for painting. When I get the car back, i'll reinstall both fenders with the proper tape, and get back to putting rock chips on the front bumper and valance again....

One day, when I am tired of driving, I'll pull it apart, clean it up, paint it, do the motor, then prob sell it, or let it turn into a GQ, but as of now, I still have a few more miles to go to 200K. Hoping for around 200K before I go into the engine unless something breaks forcing me into it before then. I'll be really curious to see what the bearings look like at 200K as well.

Great story Tim! It sucks it was backed into, but you're right to fix it and move on to enjoy the car.

Maybe clear bra the front once you have it painted nice then continue to drive the piss out of it while having it stay nice looking?

^^^ Mine has a clear bra that was installed by the previous owner. I have been thinking about removing it so the car can acquire some rock chips.
I want people to know it's not a garage queen. Plus I want to put it back to the Paint to Sample color some day. So I don't care about saving this paint.

Just had my top end only, 165,000 miles, 2nd top end rebuild (1st at 80k miles.) Car runs like new. Replaced headstuds, and a couple bent valves, installed SC cams, pistons were in spec. Makes more boost now, no oil leaks, expected oil consumption. My mechanic didn't feel splitting the case was necessary. Call John Walker in Seattle and have a chat. He's the ultimate air cooled Porsche pragmatist.

Mechanic said my 930 was healthy as I had a top end overhaul 3000 miles ago.

I did end up with a grand total of $25,000 + fixing EVERYTHING he could find bumper to bumper.

I still get annoyed at valve train noise on air cooled cars though..

I'm including ALL air cooled porsches.

What my dream would be is the sound a 962 engine makes installed in a 930.

Yes I've heard one first hand.

The valve train and engine sound like a finely tuned Italian motor bike.

This sound the 962 engine makes and I'll include the 959 as well sounds as good as any V12 ferrari.

Problem is of course it's highly impractical to fit a 962 engine into a 930. Even if there were no monetary concerns.

Hmm...you don't like the noise your car makes? What you need to do is to sell your aircooled car and buy a water pumper. Otherwise you need to appreciate its mechanical noise.

Speaking of chips...



That's not a chip...this is a chip!!



I still can't get over how much you spent getting your car sorted but it's good to know it drives well now!

Put some rarlyl8 headers and hooligan or zork on and while it doesn't sound as good as a 962, its a sweet and glorious sound that drowns out any valvetrain noise unless the decklid is open.

If referring to Ducati, there is almost no valve train noise because with the Desmodromic valve system, the opening and closing rocker arms (no traditional valve springs) are held under slight tension against the cam with a helper spring - otherwise the clatter would be very loud.

Called "lash spring" in pic.
