Now that I've finally got broadband I can join the forum without running up my phone bill....

I've had my 924 since May 1994 and it has not only been great fun, but also one of the least expensive cars I've owned (both purchase price and running costs).

I bought it from Michael Ticehurst in Stoke Row (who at the time specialised in 924s and had a great stock of them - I visit to his showroom was alway a treat). I bought the car with 53,000 miles on the clock - it now has 112,000. I 've the car service by Ray Northway as I don't have time to do it myself

The car is metallic grey which seems be a colour that has come back into fashion - I see lots of 911 and new Mini in very similars colours. It also has black leather seats - I've never seem another 924 that has.

Although I've been a "sleeping" member" for a while I'd like to meet up with other 924 owners either locally in Hampshire or at Cornbury House - anyone know if the 924 register plans to meet there soon.

Hello JohnC

The best place to start meeting other 924 owners is to attend your nearest Regional meeting (see October Porsche Post pages 95 and 96) Registers do events every once in a while but only with the co-operation of the Region (who are much more geared up for events)

Saying that, if we (924 owners) can come up with an idea for an event (say visiting a round of the 924 Championship for example) - and if there is enough interest then something may happen.

But do visit your Region meetings and the monthly open days at Cornbury House in the interim.

Thanks

How about a 924 day at Cornbury House? The ideal time would be during an open day on the first Sunday of a month as Club Shop would be open. Food can be organised if required and we have a route for a fun run of about 20 miles from, and back to CH.
Let me know.

Hello to everyone,

My name is Arthur and I now live in Athens, Greece having lived in Gloucestershire for about 20 years.

The 931 is my first Porsche, purchased in Germany in 2001, although I have loved Porsches all my life.

It's a great car, the performance is very good and I just love it!

hi, im neil. The 924 in question here is actually mums!, she brought it coz she was 'pretty', though ran like a severly disabled fish... and is full of previous owner bodges like twisted wires, cracked tappets, non working electrics, exhaust tied on with string(!) etc., etc., im still goin through them, the only problem remains is the fuel pump relay... not working... and though a 5 pin came out, there are only four wires there... though it is fun to drive when ive made it a little more drivable... im only 'borrowing' her whilst im rebuilding the mini lump, but like minis, 924s are addictive!

What on earth will happen to all this data!
I bought my 924S in 1995 and then went to Singapore until June this year and only used it for a couple of weeks each year. It's my first and only Porsche so far, but I'm thinking about buying a 968 instead (or as well!).
Very little work needed so far although I had the belts changed for peace of mind and changed the front discs as they were a bit skinny. Changed the front seats to electric ones as well, but only to help my wife find a sitting position that allowed her to see the road.
I was orginally looking for a 944, but I'm glad I chose the 924 instead as I have grown to prefer the purer lines.
The "not a real Porsche" thing has passed me by but I reckon the definitive answer is that if Porsche think its a Porsche, then its a Porsche just as much as the Cayenne anyway!

Hi there,

I have owned my black 1988 924s for just a few months now and I'm still really pleased. Apart from a full service and removing a few minor pings/dents (removed courtesy of the local dent man) it has cost very little extra. A new CD player and a carpet set finishes the interior.

I actually prefer the 924 shape - my budget allowed me to get either a 944 or 924 - but as the 1988 's' has the fully tuned 944 engine anyway I thought that seemed the best option. I only had to walk down the road to buy it as well!!

I completed a horrible drive to/from Manchester airport last night - the wind and rain was really bad - but the 924 cut straight through with no problem. Must be the first car I have had that seems to have electrics that behave when you are driving through 6 inches of rainwater for an hour!!


The only gripe I have is not knowing if intermittent wipe will work (it's like a lottery!!)

Hi All,
Finally got into the forum! My name is Terry Williamson I bought my 1984 924 in june 2001. I am the third owner and it has 117,000 miles on the clock. It is my first Porsche and my only car. I love it. I haven't been to a club event this year because I have been very busy marshalling for the BARC around the country. Next year I hope to do some club events. The 924 run to Cornbury House sounds good. I live in North East Hampshire, so anyone in the area wants to meet just shout.

Hello all

My name is Jonathan, my car is a modified 1980 Porsche 924 Turbo Series 1(I think). I bought it in June of 2000. This was my first Porsche after a life long admiration for the make.
It is a ‘hobby car’ and as such now leads a very very pampered life. Records show I am the 13th owner(yikes!), and the vehicle has covered 82k miles. I have added fewer than 1000 miles since. I spend every spare penny on it, not because it needs it, but because I want too. I am on first name terms with my local OPC and subsequently help them reach their service turnover projections. I will never ever sell it.

Hello Terry, good to see you on the forum.

There will indeed be a 924 event in 2004 (probably at Cornbury House), It is in the planning stage at the moment but details will be published first here and in the 924 mailing list.

Hello Jonathan, also good to see you online. Welcome.

Looks like you are lucky owner 13 for your car Have you sent me a Register form telling me all out your pride and joy?
