I'm back folks!

Been a long time since I've posted on here. Five years later I'm still here keeping the dream alive, I just cleaned out my garage. Time to buy her a new battery and fire her up. I still need to fix the transmission. I drove it around the block once five years ago, she's been sitting in my garage 10 years ago may 1 when I bought my house. I've had her since 93. When I was a kid.

Took that one today.

Here's an old one from a few years ago, the last time I got the itch.

Wow! That is sometime keeping her in the garage. I cannot view the vid's from work but do post some pics!

That reminds me of a guy whom owned a 87 Porsche 911T by a school I worked at. Everyonce in a few months he would was it in the garage with the door open and start it but NEVER moved it out of the garage haha.

That was depressing. Please fix her or give her to someone who will before she finishes her slow agonizing death.

Re: I'm back folks!

Before you start it after 5 years make sure you get some oil primed first! Did you put any fuel stabilizer in it? If not it may need some fresh gas poured into it.

Re: I'm back folks!

I'm sorry. After some time to think about it, I reacted harshly. It's good that your interest in the car has been sparked. Good luck with it and enjoy. I know what it's like to be distracted.

Re: I'm back folks!

There was hardly a drop of fuel in it years ago but I plan on filling my jiffy can with premium and dumping it in before I start her. It's still got a fresh oil change with synthetic in it from years ago too that looks like brand new on the dipstick.

Re: I'm back folks!

Actually this is the first time ever that I enjoyed listening to the engine running instead of the music.

Seriously I am glad to see that you are interested to get your car back to good condition again. Sorry to see that it was in the garage not running for so many years though. So how did all of those leaves get all over your car while it is in the garage?

I've gotten a little more advanced since I got my G6, here's a video I made I'm sure you'll like the music.

Re: I'm back folks!

The video is interesting. Did you make that? If so, how did you make it move fast like that?
