I mean really - kinda making me feel lazy here with just the career and the family.

I gave up my hobby car (for the time being) because I felt I didn't have the time to work on it, but I can see now that that's just BS. I'm lazy. I guess I did clean the throttle body in my 996 a few weeks ago, and I'll be replacig the brake pads this weekend....but I won't be posting pics and stories.

Thanks for the fascinating posts Wayne. Beats the hell out of most car magazines.
I try to cut back on silly things like showers, cleaning, brushing teeth, etc. No seriously, I don't really watch that much TV or play video games, etc...

This thing is sheer beauty though!
I'm working on the Boxster book and 996 book right now - just cleaned up the garage last night in preparation for some work to be done on the Boxster when I return from SEMA. The goal with the 959 is to get it into enough driving condition to take it out to Willow in November.

Reminds me of my 944 Turbo tinkering days, except to the uber degree IN EVERY FREAKING WAY (value, complexity and outright coolness, of course).
It uses the same cross-over valve on the turbo plumbing as the 951...
