I think earlier this year I said I wasn't going to buy any more cars this year. Dang, this will be my 4th one this year. I need help.
Need help? Sure, I have NO problem spending someone else's money. :lol:

So DT, did you show up in the Targa to give the salesman some assurance that Mike isn't just wasting his time or in the Miata to scare the shit out of him? :lol:

Well, it's been a long haul! All fixed up! Managed to get another $10 k out of it on top of the prior settlement, so good to go!! :)

Seriously!

You can't sell that thing. It's part of 996 history now as the most valuable 996 in the world!

60 would be awesome, but no. I'm waiting for another $5 k from insurance, which will bring it to about 48k. Will let you know when I get the final settlement, prolly a few months more. It ain't easy dealing with insurance in these matters.

Overall, not too bad for a 152k-mile tip.

Wow... Cuda coming to YOU if anyone ever crashes into my 996! Seriously. You'll be my best friend! haha

Car looks great... get that other dual tail pipe fixed. You gonna keep her around or sell her to your friend?

Cheers!
