any "day bought pics" vs. now?

Any of you have pics of your car the day you bought it (used cars I guess) and what it looks like now (assuming there is a big difference). The PO painted my 944 right before he sold it to me so mine looks the same as 8 years ago when I bought it since I keep it in my garage. If there is an old thread like this already can somebody tell me how to find it?

This is what it looked like when i bought it in October '04.







As of two months ago + 30k miles or so.




This picture is about a year and a half old, but the interior hasnt changed much with the exception of a 4-pt roll bar and harnesses.

Under the hood, it's a huge difference. It looks mostly the same outside, except that it has the rear bumper pad put back on, and it's clean now (still haven't fixed the seats!).

Before:



After:

The above pic is my car last summer, looked that way too when I bought it in 98. The bra is now only on in winter since I noticed the screen on it made the engine temp higher, or made the fan work harder, or both.

Wow, been a long time since I posted on this board, so why not start again with pics

This pic is close to when I bought it just over 5 years ago now.



These one's are from this past summer, the beast is in winter storage right now, but unfortunatly will be up for sale this spring. Time to move onto another Porche.

Crippler,

What size tires you got on that beast? I love the rims. Kudos! The dish in the rear is huge... I'm gonna take a guess and say 255 in the rear and 225 in the front? I will soon be running 225 front and 245 rear on 16 inch rims.

Pics to come soon!

The weekend I brought it home:


What it looks like today:


It's winter, so she sits in a heated garage under a car cover. Haven't driven her in a month, this weekend might be warm so I might take it out.
