      I love Douglas aircraft and I started this whole thread while looking for DC-8 photos. I've worked on Douglas aircraft before (an A-4) and I can attest to how well built they are. While I was in...

      This photo further reinforces my belief that the Cayman GT4 is the best looking Porsche they've made in the last 20 years. The 980 Carrera GT is a close second but the Cayman GT4 has better curves.

      I'm glad you enjoy my postings here because I enjoy helping out others and letting them know of my experiences. I don't really have an allergy to maintenance as much as I have to drive this car so...

      I would be driving a 968 instead of a Boxster if I could use public transportation in a pinch. Parts availability on older cars is extremely important and it was critical for me to get a newer car...

      IM sent! Check your inbox. :)



      I'm glad to see you are having lots of fun with your car. These really are great little cars and they're built very well. Of course they're not flawless but no...

      Thanks! I like the color too and in bright sunlight it really looks fantastic. The car has the stock bearing and it's doing fine. When I need to do the clutch I'm going to do some major upgrades at...

      I looked at shox.com just for example and this combo seems like a winner:
      Bilstein Sport shocks/struts 434601 1997 - 2004 22-046239 ,22-046246 Set of 4 F&R 881.60

      Thanks! The sound is a bit different from various 4 cylinder cars. The biggest difference is that the sound is behind you rather than in front of you. I've had several passengers note that the...

      Not yet. The clutch is fine and so is the flywheel. When the day comes that I need one I'll stick with the stock parts. The clutch kit for these cars really is not expensive at all! I have Yokohama...

      I have heard that of all the Cayennes the V6 manual is the most fun to drive. I have driven the V8 and turbo V8 ones with the doggomatic and they were neat yet I could easily see myself getting bored...

      We were considering a used Cayenne with no warranty a while back but decided against it. I'm glad we did not get it because at the time the fuel economy for my wife's long commute made it a deal...

      I'm working ASW helicopters these days. :cool:



      It is VERY easy. Look for the "U" in the 10th digit of the VIN. U = Uusikaupunki Finland. Valmet is a fine company with a long history of high...
    15. Here's my personal take on it: Daily driver?...

      Here's my personal take on it:

      Daily driver? Boxster > 968.
      Weekend car? 968 > Boxster.

      The 968 is an AWESOME car and I would own one in a snap. My biggest caveat is that parts are not...

      Thanks! I will continue to post them and these updates.

      It's that time of the year again when I report what it's been like to daily drive Porsches. This was always intended to be a helpful guide for those interested in joining the group of us who drive...

      986 and 996 owners take note:

      I had felt that my car was acting a bit sluggish and the throttle response was just not what I thought it should be. I took out the throttle body, cleaned it...
