Update, sorry not a good one. I've been busy tearing apart and re-building my dad's 2003 Vert. During a oil pan inspection I found the top half of the balance shaft tensioner arm and decided to pull the motor to replace the whole timing set.
The porsche is still outside, currently covered in snow (so I missed my commit to not start working on it till the snow flies!).
A minor milestone, I did get the title put into my name. This required VIN inspection, and I was able to get the DMV to come to the house and perform this inspection rather than tow it to them. Small hurdle but I feel alot better now that it is MINE, and in my name!

|Tboy||Right! Itís patiently waiting for me. I probably wonít mess with this till the snow flies!|

Car arrived safe and sound on Friday. I was glad to have taken the day off even though the driver told me he would arrive on Saturday.
Had a chance to wash it (so this is a wet picture):
The car is in pretty good shape overall. Iíve not been under it but from what I can tell of the wheel wells it is very clean (dirty but no rust). Engine appears 100% unmolested. Everything looks there like itís never been disturbed.
I did get it started but only ran it for a few seconds. It leaks oil something fierce, and I donít trust the old timing belt on there.
Lots of little things that need fixed. I think Iíll start a laundry list!

|tuner4life||Cool deal! I too have several projects that are just getting "looked at" while I finish others. Keeps me motivated and moving forward.|

|Tboy||Winch. Has a bad clutch master. my Bro in law says it runs good but has a decent sized oil leak he thinks is the head gasket.|
|08-28-2018 06:26 PM|
|srp||Drove or winched it on?|

So this is happening right now:

I envy you.
I love these cars. I have always wanted one.
Good luck with the project!

|Tboy||I pulled the trigger on professional shipping service. I was able to get the price down to $1120 door to door from Utah to Ohio. Car should be picked up tomorrow, and delivered Friday 8/30/18. Looking forward to it. I've been busy as a mad man preparing for this by completing other projects at break neck speed (compared to how fast they were moving). I've neglected most of my house duties, and have a few projects backing up there as well. I think I may just "receive" the Porsche, and then look at it for a while as I catch up. I installed heat in the garage this year so I'm hoping that it will be much more tolerable out there this year, even though still no insulation. We will see.|

This car is potentially worth a great deal!
You shouldn't try to start it if it's sat for a long time without properly preparing the engine.
Someone should be able to tell you what is needed in order not to damage the car.
Really nice girt!!!

One of my former bosses almost GAVE me his 928 S4 5mt because he was too lazy to ship it from NY to CA. Sad face.

951s are rad. I was *this close* to picking one up last year. I also have a thing for the 968, which is sort of like what a 944 S3 would have been (had they made one).
Great acquisition! Can't wait to see what you do with it.
|07-12-2018 07:17 AM|
You are 100% correct! I did read your thread and all your struggle!
|07-12-2018 06:34 AM|
that's awesome. I love the white on white, those are great cars. You are smart to ship it. You never know what can go wrong on a drive that long and Freiburger makes good TV when cars blow up on the way home. You can do more to hurt the car driving it back, I think, that would end up costing more in the long run.
Trust me, I recently did a long distance drive home in a car that I thought was in good shape and it didn't go well!!!

|tuner4life||That thing is sweet! I've always had a thing for that body style. Looks clean!|

|srp||Nice. I've been casually looking for a cheap example to pick up for autocross. Will be a fun project for you I'm sure!|
