Porsche Crest I want everyones thoughts

Should I keep my 924 or Sell it ?????

Its a 1978 Porsche 924. Like I said before it dosent run it has fuel injection problems. Its Guards Red and has 150k. The left front quarter panel is dented and when it did run it shifts funny from 3rd to 4th gear. Its been sitting since I got my 944 in April and I want to get my mind off my problems ( A girl I really like ditched me today to go back to her ex) Enough with my personal problems though. So that why I want to concentrate back on my 924. So should I keep it or Sell it ?????

Too late for me - I married a girl and fell in love with a car.

Just remember, if you are a good guy, when the problems with the ex resurface you'll get another shot.

Telling her immediately that she had her chance & blew it (in a gentlemanly way) will set you on the right path forever.

Take her back and :

A: You will begin a downward spiral

B: She'll leave you for the chump again.

Good luck, no one ever said being a man is easy.

&agrave l&aacute "Trading Places". Sell the car, 944's are easier to work on and don't have that stupid CIS.

btw: If you do take the chick back after the ex screws it up again (and they always, always do.) Treat her like dirt and use for 3am booty calls. Make her buy you stuff and then dump 'er after a year. Try to work a 3some while yer there.

Make sure the 3some is with the Bimbet, not the guy she ran back to.

Sell the car if you can - otherwise you'll soon develop my disease and end up with more projects than time...

I think you should ditch the CIS for twin side draft webers, new fenders are cheap, get a new/used tranny, gut the hell out of it and go AutoXing.

GHEN, you hit the nail on the head. I just had the same thing happen, and she did both A and B. That whore...I mean, umm...
