my day has come! i got one!

hello hows it going some of you may remember me some may not but about a year are so ago i came on here asking questions and asking about buying a 911 ,and i was meet with open arms of information and knowledge ,rite off the bat i had countless people giving me ideal's on wich porsche i should buy,trying to sell off some of there projects and posting links of cars on ebay ,and ton's of advice on what i should do .at the time i had a porsche bank roll of about 3,500 and i wanted a older model dailey driver 911, no other model would do ,a lot of you folks raised a eyebrow and said it couldnt be done in a consederate tone,and some also said they were looking for the same deal ,but all in all someone said something that i took to heart and that was,that i should save up a lil more and wait for that golden deal instead of just trying to get some poor abused rust tub that no one loved for what it was,, other than just a car,
well the other day i was on my way to work just lumbering down the road in my donut box plumbing truck, down a road that i have been down a hundred time's when out of the corner of my eye i saw a open garage door with the un-copy-able front end of a 911 peeking out from under a pile of boxes , i swung my 2 ton beast of a plumbing truck over to the side of the road,people were honking and giving me the native bird ,i didnt care i was on a mission, as i come to the driveway of the open garage all i could see was the front end the whole thing was covered with boxes and garge junk i could make out that it was in the late 70's do to the 5 mph bumpers ,and it was beige in color ,i just stood there trying to catch lil shots of the body between the crevaces of the boxe's ,and imagined my self with my racing scarf flowing in the wind as i gripped the leather wraped steering wheel while taking the S's on the canyon road,it was like it was calling out to me to free it from its cardboard and tax box prison,as i snapped my self out of my 8 billionth porsche induced dream i relized im going to have to go knock on the door. as i walked up the long walkway my heart was beating like a redlining tach ,i reached the door and knocked, a few seconds passed than i heard the distinctive sound of high heel shoes walking across a hardwood floor ,as the door opened i was greeted by a older lady about early fifty's slender graying hair glasses and a nice smile ,before i could reach out my hand to intruduce my self ,she said the 4 heart sinking words. (thats all for tonight this is a long story ,gots to hit the hay,but stay tuned for part 2)

I'm thinking the story here is like the one in Sunset Boulevard with William Holden and Olivia de Havilland. He knocks on the door. She takes him in. He becomes her "boy," and then she gives him the car in return for his "favors." Anyone have another scenario?
