The recent road test by C.R. concerned with the current Porsche 911 SC Sport evoked once again the desirability of owning such a piece of exotica.
Like I imagine 99% of your readers, the possibility of owning such a machine in anything like new condition could only come about by “Ernie” being at his most generous towards me. However, impecunny is a relative term and like many other enthusiasts one expects to have perhaps £5,000 to spend on the next car.
I am sure many enthusiasts like myself would, through your columns, be very interested to learn from the experiences of others who have taken the plunge and discovered the pitfalls and joys? –of buying such cars as the Porsche 911 series, Alta Montreal, Mercedes 230SL but with perhaps 60,000′ miles on the odometer.
With sincere appreciation tor 22 years’ excellent reading.
