Thanks all for giving up the unrusted & well serviced Porsches ( many from CA, Texas, Arizona) I got over the decades that I have delivered to the under serviced and neglected sport car affectionados of Wisconsin and surrounding areas. . I still have many favorites I've kept now I have retired but as you know ( can't take them with you ) so maybe some will be going back. ( shameless plug for website VoitureLTD.com ) for your ( hopefully far into future ) reference. Stay tuned. Thanks, Tony @ VoitureLTD

Here is another Example of a car advertised as a "California car" , and of course it is rusty.
It is California rust. and of course that must be a better rust. maybe it is easier to weld than other rust?

How do you avoid a rusty p-car when the rust is not obvious ?
Then you are a hobbyist who does not want to learn anything and argues with anybody even pro's or people in the business about Porsches which they know much more than you do, as a hobbyist, as you admit.
You have no real desire to know anything you do not already believe.
So it would pointless for me to share my experience. I already of have in this thread, but you have dismissed it. That's your prerogative. So you have made you decision and I do not feel like getting in a pointless argument with you just for arguments sake.
Because that is what it would be.

I know nothing. I can't see rust when it isn't obvious unlike the two shining examples you have put forth.

CA car is a benefit from the corrosion standpoint as already extensively discussed. Also good for keeping engines closer to stock if its newer than '75.

I'm also curious why sellers feel the need to point out the prior owner was a physician/pilot/engineer.

Because everyone wants to believe that their car was owned by a flat top fighter pilot or a College Professor with a tweed coat and leather elbows. I have a friend who is trying to sell a Speedster and guy's keep calling him asking about the "story" of the car. There is no story, at least not one that he knows, it changed hands five times and ended up at his shop, where he restored it. But if it was owned by a physician/pilot/engineer well then it would be sooooo much more interesting. People who put that stuff in the ad are only giving the buyer's what they crave, it's just good marketing. A story/provenance goes a long way to selling a car. I just sold a 73S project for over $70,000, I can guarantee you the provenance of that car helped with the sale.

^^^^^ THIS!

CA is a melting pot, especially Southern CA. People move here from everywhere and many drive their rusty cars from where ever they came from.

In fact, I have met a few P-Car owners and their "Original Black Plate CA Car", however, even they did not know their 356 was wearing 70's era blue license plates that had been painted black. That meant their car spent at least 5 years in another state.

I guess the rule is Once a California car always a California car, even if it is in New Jersey.

Cars or guitars, Southern cal is the perfect place to have a car. I can see the ocean from my roof and my 85 car has no rust. Like all Porsche owners I know, we keep our cars in the garage. Why would they rust??? Before There was a LA or San Diego, Southern Cal was covered with Chaparral. Dry as a bone . If you look at old photos there were no trees, no palm trees, just Desert .

My old 911SC spent its whole life in LA County and then Arizona. It had rust under the battery and a bit in the front pan (no surprise), in the front windshield corners and the rockers. Very little but it was there and needed fixing. Overall it appeared to be a dry state car and the exhaust and suspension pieces were in fantastic, rust free shape.

You just have to verify each car on its own merit.

Yea, the plates are original black plates but as you probably know it doesn’t mean the car is from California. My Mustang has black plates and prior to me the only time it was in Ca was when it left LA off the assembly line and onto the car carrier off to Texas.

A little off topic but my friend from Denver tells me that many cars he sees out there
at car shows are running the new Ca black plates. That blows me away as to why anyone would want to pay our high registration costs just to have some NEW style black plates.

Is Califronia car a plus?

^^^ You own a Porsche.
Why does a few bucks more for a cool black and yellow plate cross the line?

I bet lunch for your family costs more.
