993 "2, tatty but mechanically solid.

993 c2, I'm thinking about selling. Much as I love it to bits, I used it to drive to work but I've stopped working now, so all I'm doing is running up the m58 to keep the battery going. Which is a waste, it deserves better. 
It's got 205k on the clock. But had a full 9m engine rebuild about 15k ago, and a full gearbox rebuild about 20k ago. It had a new distributor with the engine rebuild. New front calipers 15k ago.
It's tatty. I will be honest. I drove from Liverpool to Manchester and back every day, prior to that it was driven to Glasgow weekly on the motorway. It had a bit of a respray a few years ago (someone reversed into it and paid for a chipmasters half respray). There are several supermarket dents, and small amounts of rust/bubbling on front door pillars. The driving wheel has a couple of rotted spots.
I'm honest with the stuff that needs doing.
The 9m rebuild is fantastic. It could do with a new idle valve, but apart from that, mechanically it's a joy. I used to drive it through the Welsh hills, then based in Liverpool it was my daily driver, to Manchester, Lytham, so all motorway driving.
It has new headlights with bergville HIDs, I've a spare set of old headlights (clip mounts broke), a new bergville fan for the ccu, led replacements for internal lights and brake lights.
I'd be gutted to see it go. I dreamt of a 911 since I was a kid, then suddenly found myself being able to afford one. D911UJH, 3.2 coupe. I was like Mr. Toad in the test drive, 'beep beep'. I loved that car, many happy memories. 
I upgraded to a 993 which was a Friday car, a shed, but swapped to this, same year, which has been a joy. I just don't use it, which is a shame, it deserves someone who wipp appreciate it 
If anyone is interested, please drop me a line.
I've had it fully looked after by Nine meister, the previous owner ditto.
It's arctic blue, grey interior.
If anyone is interested, let me know, let me know what photos you want.
