Thats quite something, I'd love to know the service details on the engine and any overhauls though?

Thats cool.
Porsche should be giving the guy a new car and putting that on display.
The amount of money he must have given Porsche over the years keeping it on the road must be huge.

That thought passed my mind. Same car, just had 2 new engines, a gearbox, four clutches and new front & rear axles. Oh, and suspension of course. Other than that, same car. Apart from a new interior...

I would be impressed if it is almost original though!

Love reading stories like this.

His car has almost certainly given much more pleasure to him than if he'd parked it up in a dehumidifed garage as an "investment".

Bet it has been better on the environment than a new Prius, taken as a whole life calculation. I know which one I would want to a journey to the moon and back in!
