      That is a no-brainer right there. That price leaves so much room for YEARS of maintenance, insurance, and even upgrades. 171,000 miles on the odo shows just how durable and reliable these cars are as...

      This sand rail with a 2000cc racing engine would be stupidly entertaining for $3,995.

      "Easy to confuse the truck's uncompromising utility for shoddy workmanship."

      That sounds just like a MiG! I so badly want one of these but I've never ever seen one in the USA. I think all of them...

      Thankfully the AOS is quite an easy job to do. I replaced the one on my car quite easily with the new upgraded part.

      I know that $28k could get a nicer car than my humble old 986 but I just need...

      That's more than enough for a helluva DD 986 Boxster plus maintenance, tires, and insurance for several years. Ask me how I know?

      For me this truck evoked nightmares of the old BMW 745i with the Bangle Butt.

      Don't think that air-cooled motors are impervious from high repair bills either. In the 8 years I went up to Watkins Glen I did Tech Inspection at countless PCA track events and club races. Before...

      Shhhhh! We're trying NOT to talk about how much of a bargain those cars are. That way the dubbers won't buy them and ruin them.

      The weak or defective mechanical parts that fail will often do so at the lower mileage. The issues with IMS will pop up more often on the infrequently driven garage queens.

      I am not as experienced with the 997 interior compared to my 986. What I can say though is that it's a helluva step up from the older interiors with their cracking dashes and weak climate control...

      Fixed that for you. You want higher mileage not low. It's the garage queens and "I bought this when I had money but now I don't so I can't afford to drive it now" types that have more problems.

      The initial price is indeed becoming more affordable. Just remember you need to pay for the maintenance as well. These are very common cars and Porsche made a lot of them. The worst thing you can do...

      I can somehow see the O.P. in this beetle with his Porsche license frame.

      Ditto. You can do whatever you want to your car but don't wonder why people are giving you the "wow that kid is either confused or just proud of being a wannabe." You don't see me with Lamborghini...

      Agreed! That is a pretty cool little swap! The remaining $2,500 would make that car into something I think would be more fun than the low mileage Rabbit at the dealership.

      When it comes to restoring I enjoy aircraft more than cars. If it was a project for someone else and they're paying for it I'd want to restore an armored car. Specifically I'd like to restore a...

      For that price someone who is a VW fan would be a better candidate. The only reason I'd want something like that would be to drive it like I stole it. At some point I just would see myself spending...
