Well.. 964s are 25-30 years old. Even at 5K miles a year, that's only 125-150K miles. One could argue that anything less than that is simply an underused car ;)

I'd have no qualms with one of...

Some items that may prevent the 987.1 from being "collectible"

1) Production quantity
2) IMS

Once you get past those two, and realise it may take till its 20 years old to actually bottom out...

Tedder, the car in question sounds like its going through "puberty". Lots of issues/replacement parts going on here. I would bet that trend continues and that is why the owner wants it gone. Tired of...

Sounds like just a bad fan switch at the unit? Thus, only when you run the AC and get its condenser fan running do you get any cooling.

While your in there (front bumper cap removed) be sure to...

iirc, '85 came 15" wheels. I think 7x15 front, 8x15 rear. SC's had the same body and would have had either 6x15 and 7x15 or optional 7/8 x 15s (and yes, 16"s too). Stock sizes were 195/65-15 and...

Sounds a little high. What is their shop rate? $150/hr? 200/hr?

I would guess this should be closer to $900-1200. Of course, there is always the DIY opportunity.

I would guess parts to be in...

The chop requires you, while the roof is about "1/2" way open, to "chop" the rear window. It will bow and curl. You want to help it take its "natural" folded shape while in the process of lowering...

My guess is you'll find more closer to Boston than RI (EPE in Natick, MA comes to mind) or Dan Jacobs in Southbury CT

I believe the reported failure rate is around 10% on the early cars. IMS retrofits seems to be an answer, although as you mentioned, they too need replacement after a while. Check out Jake Raby's...

imho, the 911R offset wheel looks best under the narrow body fender. Like "75 911s" above, my folks ran 6x15 front, 7x15 911R wheels in back on their '74 911S with longer studs and spacers. 205/50...
