Newbie - First Post

Hey there! I purchased my 1977 911S this past winter and after lurking around for a few months finally decided to jump in and actually sign up. I also have a blog set up where I write about my car...it's at http://77911s.blogspot.com.

A photo of my car is attached. This has been a great resource so far...I'm looking forward to becoming part of the community. FYI, I've already fixed the goofy fog lights!

BTW, my '77 had black window trim and door handles. How did this one end up silver? I like it.

Luke,
Did you ever figure out how your copper brown car ended up guards red? Unless the car was rebuilt from the ground up, that's a pretty hard thing to hide.

Impossible. Everyone knows there are no Porsches in Minnesota!

Welcome Luke, we're a rare bread but we do exist. There are several very active St. Paul/Minneapolis Pelicans on the board. Watch here for news of the annual coffee dashes and fun runs.

Hi Luke!

I'm another noob - I started reading and enjoying your blog a while ago when I bought my '76 911S Coupe (Ice Green Met.).
