Okay, he's in...!

After looking for a long time (at least in the eyes of a 17 year old) I just helped my son buy his first Porsche. A 1986 944 n/a with a good record and lots of good piddling (sorting?) to do to get it perfect. What a great car for a kid! I've had the 911 for a while, but after driving the 944, I'd be happy to trade most days.

Look for him on the board soon, as he tries to figure out what he's got!

Although I am new here myself, allow me to welcome your son.

BTW, the Iris Blue is (IMO) Porsche's best ever color.

Awesome! Sounds like that will be a fun thing to work on/tinker with together as a father & son project, too. Just make sure that he saves up for a 944 "slush" fund!

We have had a good time with the 911 maintenance so far--adjusting valves, replacing the windshield gasket, minor and major services. Now he gets his own Porsche--he will need a slush fund to sort it out.

He's going to the Nascar Technical Institute in Mooresville in August. The kid wants to work on Porsche cars for a living. I can't decide if he would do better going there or to NCSU....since he's on fire about cars and mechanicals, I'm betting on NTI for now.

The car needs a few parts and pieces, which he'll have to buy. Hopefully he'll post on this board and try to find them from Pelicanites.
