Bought a Porsche

This is my 3rd Porsche. I had a '79 911 SC briefly when I lived in Germany. That was followed by a 1974 914 2.0, that I also had while I was in Germany in the Army in the '80's.

This one is a 1986 911 3.2 Carrera. It has 133,000 mi. It's mechanically very good with leak down of 2% on all cylinders. The interior is good and the body is relatively straight. It looks like it was shunted mildly from the rear at some point in it's life. The rear quarters have bondo on them. The bondo looks like the surface of a dry lake bed.

Oh well. Guess I'll have to paint it. So, let's see. This month's Excellence says the car is worth between $18,000 and $26,000. Since I paid $10,000 for it, I guess I have some room to play.

So I guess I'll start the projects.
