  1. New addition - 2019 Macan

    Adding to my 2016 Spyder family with a sapphire blue Macan with 20" Spyder wheels, black leather.
    I recently visited the new Gold Coast showroom to see what it was like and saw one in their showroom. I couldn't believe how striking the SUV looked.
    I priced it at Manhattan Motorcar - $6000 due at signing, $800 month for 36 months. That wasn't doable. That night I search on Porsche sight for any in country.
    Found 2 in CT, 1 in AL and 1 at Gold Coast (NY). I started chats ...

  2. A couple of days on the Blue Ridge Parkway

    I was lucky enough to have a free weekend for a cruise on the Blue Ridge Parkway. So I took the 993 up late Friday afternoon to set up "base camp" at a great place called the Alpine Inn in Little Switzerland, NC.

It's now August 2017 and i am just about to 40K on the odometer. I decided to take a plunge and added the 82mm IPD Plenum and larger GT3 Throttle body. With only this upgrade i am pretty impressed. The ability for it to run smoothly through the lower gears and RPM's is very noticeable for me. Not sure why i hadn't done ...
  4. Time to get re-acquainted

    It's been a LONG time since my last blog posting! And so the title of this post seems appropriate, as it reflects both a re-acquaintance with my 911 and this blog. I hope you find it enjoyable!

    I was lucky enough to become the care-taker of my first 911, a '95 993 C2, in November of last year. I was not in the market for an air-cooled 911, or any other car for that matter, but sometimes things just seem to happen. After some consideration and a talk with a very supportive wife, the ...
