geedeeMy newest 911 driving experience was at the UK launch of the 993 at Cameron house on the shores of Loch Lomond in November 93 where the now defunked magazine Car Week editors were looking for a 10 year old Porsche to create an article in which to compare with the then new 993 ... Tony the PCGB RO in my area at the time and was contacted and suggested my old SC could perhaps fit the bill, Car Week editors were happy it seemed, but not as happy as was I to attend the launch and drive the 993 over my favourite stretch of road in the Trossachs...I was also informed that I was the first private individual to drive the 993 by the then MD of Porsche cars GB..!!! It was also great to see my old SC appearing in the magazine alongside the then brand new 993. I also wrote a few paragraphs and took a few pics which appeared in Porsche Post.As some of you may know Cameron house suffered a fire a few years back and apparently it has been refurbished and considerably modernised and due to open this April... I have read in the 993 register section of Porsche post that there was Covid halted round the UK baton relay planned and had been in progress, I thought it would have been great to plan a possible Cameron House change over lunch or whatever...? Perhaps if the pox continues to restrict the baton`s progress perhaps November 2023 could be a significant anniversary..?Finally I note that there seems to be no 993 register entries in this months Porsche post...?
geedeeGlad you liked the "Snow way to treat a Porsche" pic Franck, it was taken quite some time back with a film camera..Another pic from the shoe box, is of a Trio of SC Porsches sorry about the quality, but I thought perhaps worth posting, the black one being mine, the gold one being my pal Cameron`s, he asked me to look it over and accompany him to Snetterton where he intended to take part in a Porsche club race..! Cameron had a roll cage fitted but other than that it was a standard 911. When I ran a spanner round it, first stop as ever, I checked the distributor rev limiter was free, and in the process found the advance/retard operation to be seized, no doubt due to lengthy periods of time laid up as tends to be the life of the average air cooled, perhaps more so these days..? At least it is a simple enough task to free off the dizzy problems in an SC, none of the complexities of the later 12 plug 964 or 993`s. It was an interesting trip down and back up from Snetterton from R1 for the race, which Cameron enjoyed just being part of it al,l as did I, Cancer took Cameron many years back..sigh!The Green SC Sport was Ronnie`s, Ronnie being perhaps the most loyal Porsche enthusiast of us all, having owned many variations of the marque.From a dull memory someone ran into the back of Ronnie`s SC at one time but the damage was light enough that the engine lid was perhaps repaired as opposed to being replaced, and as I typed previously I bashed the rear wing on my black one at Knockhill when I suffered a bit of brain fade and it suffered the usual corrosion issues of a then circa 13 year OLD 911, So you see these cars are likely to all have some sort of..err.. history..?
geedeeMaurice, I have no intention to get into the mire of politicking or copyright issues and for what..? The photographs I post are my own.
geedeeIf this is too much chat for the forum, just SHOUT and I shall cease and desist.
