I had to go and give Niall his bonnet which amazingly still just about fits in a 306 with bucket seats.

Anyway as expected there were some decent cars.

Mmmm... some proper Pork there Big Grin

Shame that anything from the air cooled generation is climbing to such eye-watering values these days Sad
yeh i love anything with the whale tail. I really want a 944 tbh as well.
Regular 944's are suprisingly reasonable price wise and don't look too bad a proposition from an ownership POV tbh, with Turbo's and S2's unsurprisingly commanding a fair premium and with higher running costs but nothing too ridiculous.

As far as I know from when I was considering one a couple of years back, Porsche are really good for supporting the older cars too in terms of parts supply and pricing - something that certainly can't be said for Peugeot who seem to be NFP'ing even quite basic parts now for the 205/309/405 and earlier 306's now.

I know that they were shunned as not being a "proper" Porsche by 911 snobs, but I can't quite understand why 944's are so cheap still when by all accounts they're a good car in their own right - even really tidy low mileage ones aren't that costly in the grand scheme of things compared to other, arguably lesser, cars of that era.

I mean, could anyone buying a 944 new have ever realistically thought that a humble 205 or Golf of the same age would end up being more valuable 25 years later? It's a funny old world...
Porsche are so popular because they dared to be different , more manufactures need to do this .
