Look what I spotted today!

This is something you don't see here every day. I was driving around and spotted these:



An 928S and a 924. I'm not sure of the years, the 928 had an 76 dated DOT rear lens. I could not see any date or the vin on the 924. In this country (Qatar, just hanging out for a few more weeks) these are an oddity, Cayenne's are the common Porsche (must be 20 here). Both these cars have seen better days. The 928 has an perfect body, but the interior is trashed.

raid the 928 for parts and sell them back here in the states. You can make a small fortune...

That looks like a pretty solid E30 parked nearby. I could use some parts off that car.

I'm stationed at Ft Bragg NC. Just another week till I'm home and back to the family. That is a repair shop in the new industrial area outside Doha, the capital. I have to assume the 928 is there for repairs, but I have not seen ever seen it moved, the 924 just showed up the other day.

This is probably been the most fun driving in any city I have been in. Round abouts, unlimited speed, driving over medians, parking on sidewalks, splitting lanes, passing the police up (who are also speeding) . If you ever wish you could do it, you can, because no one here cares. I know I'm going to get a ticket when I get home.
