If you road trip it I'm sure you could probably meet up with DT and if you drop down to see DC I'd buy you another beer/lunch/dinner.

I hear there is some pokey museum you could stop by as well out in the middle of nowhere.

Would love to road trip it, but my schedule is insanely busy, so can't afford the time.

Yeah I imagine all that bar hopping makes for a busy schedule...

That car is literally in my home town. Jeff, the restaurant we had lunch in used to be the Cadillac Saab dealership from that same dealership chain. Who just bought the Porsche dealership because the current owner didn't want to build the new building Porsche was demanding.

Hell, by KC's spatial recognition that means Mike must only live 10 minutes from the place. It's just silly to ship a car such a little distance!

Ok gotta plan... DT drives the 991 to Cuda, they hang out, trade hot sauce stories and bar jokes, then DT flies back to PA. Problem solved.
2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

DT, can you stop by and look at the car for me? I have lots of pix and the sales guy seems honest enough, but some eyes on the car never hurts.

You have the same last name as me, so tell him you're my dad or something.

I'll go by tomorrow if you want. PM me the specifics if I don't already have them or text me; I can't find your number for some dumb reason.

The funny thing is that I would probably do it.
