    Ten Fifty-nine

    Some of the most interesting posts on this site are the ones where members tell about, give updates, and show pictures of the cars that they’re working on. I’ve had a car for a while now --- showed some pictures of it, done some driving with it, told some stories about it. It's been a year-and-a-half now, and I’m getting into the paint and bodywork, and some of the other major stuff, so . . . . it’s time for me to post.

    Besides the car, there are some other things I want to write about. First is about how I got here, about the car I was looking for, and why this car. We all have different reasons for getting into Porsches --- mine aren’t unique --- but they do color a lot of what I get out these cars and our site. The next thing is to tell about my search: where I looked, what I found, some close-calls, and how I did The Deal. Next, I want to give some nuts-and-bolts-type details about putting the car right --- things that came up, work that got done, parts that I bought, people that I worked with, including as many facts, figures, names, and pictures as I can fit in. The last thing I’ll include ---- my favorite part --- are The Drives.

    This account takes its title from the VIN of the car that its all about . . . 9110301059.

    So, here goes . . . .
