914 also, and never again. What a rust bucket/money pit. And lets face it, a 72HP 1.8 is just plain slow.

I had a 64 VW! Same thing as a Porsche.

Well I have to admit that I did have a 79 924.

1984 944 N/A. Had it for EXACTLY one year (6/23/99 to 6/23/00) until I smashed it into a wall while veering out of a curved tunnel. (don't ask).

Was Montego Black metallic with a rare platinum-finished Fuchs and in pristine shape before the crash. Boy do I miss that car.............

This was my car the day I sold it, look at the perfectly straight front spoiler. I loved that car. With the knowledge I gained here on pelican I could have fixed it with a turn of a screw.... I'm still kicking myself for that.

Here is my first car:


and my current...


Okay...so it's the same car...but it was like a new car. I sent it away to be painted and only saw it once for the 5 months it was gone. After the paint it was a totally different car.

Pearldrum,

Your '44 looks pretty sweet after the paint job. I've been considering getting mine repainted. How much did it run you if you don't mind my asking? Did you have it painted a different shade (hard to tell from the pix)?

Yes, the color is much lighter. I have no idea what the old color was, It had been repainted a few times. The new color is a color that is currently available from porsche called "arctic silver". My uncle owns a body shop and he painted it...all I had to pay for were the materials (I got really lucky). He said it would have been about a $5,000 paint job because it had 5 layers of paint on it! Not to mention some hail damage or something that had been repaired wrong...

I almost like that color better than the gun metal grey on my '83.
