Re: I finally sold my 951

The wheel dollies pretty much say it all!

I always thought those were cool looking cars.  I helped a friend put a new oil pan gasket on his.  Well, mostly watched him cuss and throw wrenches while borrowing my four post lift.

Car has 51,000 miles on it and was new in 87. I am the second owner and put 30,000 miles on it. Pain in the -oh no I used a word I shouldn't have- to work on and while it is a hoot to drive the reward of working on it to drive it is not there anymore.

An oil pan gasket requires the complete front suspension to be dropped. A total pain in the arse car to work on, hence me wanting to get rid of it.

Port fuel injection. A absolutely fun car to drive and goes like stink when it is all together. I blew the head gasket and do not want to work on it anymore.

Re: I finally sold my 951

Bearing Bob - now you've got to go out and buy all those fureign metrick tools! (If ya don't already have them). And - you'll have to go around correcting everyone who says it's a Porsh instead of a Porsha.

Re: I finally sold my 951

I was always partial to the 928 when it came to front engines Porsches.  The 944 was a good car too though.  It didn't get as much respect as it deserved in its day.  Always seemed overshadowed by its big brothers.  Typical German engineering, everything is overdone and complicated.

Re: I finally sold my 951

I remember when I was stationed in Germany in 1985 to 1986 and those,  928 and 911 flying down the Autobahn.  Me in my Army 5 ton truck driving at 50mph looking at the Blur going by...LOL

Re: I finally sold my 951

Finding a U- Haul trailer was the hardest part of the deal. Well, other than a detour cuz the I-70 was closed due to a fire. Which necessitated me driving via BB's house and sleep in the truck in his driveway. Drove straight thru ~900 miles, stopping for 1 gas fill up.

Had to drive into Denver for the trailer as they sent my trailer in for repairs and didn't replace it,  or call me. Carolyn and Gary are quite generous hosts.

I can't imagine this car being more difficult to work on that an Audi I had. Let the "fun" begin.

Re: I finally sold my 951

So the thing about that is, it depends.  The accent in German is highly localized, so where they are produced it would be properly pronounced Porscha.  Some dialects would drop the vowel on the end completely, making Porsch technically also correct, and yet others would pronounce it more like Porscheh, so that's also not wrong.  The German language, much like their engineering, is WAY overdone.  English is in many ways a greatly simplified version of German, though at this point American English has picked up words from many, many languages, and even in antiquity it developed a bit of a Latin flair due to Roman occupation of Britain.  Those Germans left to their own devices on the far side of the Rhine just kept refining the language until it became probably the most complicated European language to master that doesn't use a different alphabet.  Its why for years people have claimed JFK once proclaimed himself a jelly doughnut, when in reality he spoke correctly.

How do you say “I don’t give a -oh no I used a word I shouldn't have-” in German?

Re: I finally sold my 951

Bearing Bob headed out this morning around 8:30 MDT with the 951 in tow. His first stop is Bullet Bob's in Montrose for some pizza and maybe spend the night. 

I sort of miss the Little Red Racer, but I will not miss working on it.

Fed him some Papa Murphy's finest for lunch but couldn't get him to spend the night.  He's one of those "hammer down" types, ya know.
Man, Gary, that car is in really fine shape...except for the Teutonic engineering and the attention required to keep it going.

Bullet, it has never seen rain nor snow. I have never had a car that the blue goosh in the windshield wiper bottle crystallized. It took many a German part to get the squirters to work to get rid of bugs.

Bearing got a deal, just sayin.

Yes he did! Thanks brother.

Just dropped off the Perro Rojo at my mechanic's (my brother) in Fresno. Which only added 250 miles to my return trip. Been up 25 hours,  time for a nap.
