    Re: 21 years of Guard Red

    Great shots, thanks for posting them.


    Re: 21 years of Guard Red

    My pleasure, guys - thanks for the compliments and good wishes. Smiley

    @DaveGordon: I took delivery last week. Yes, it was on Autoscout, but not at an AMAG towards Bern...

    @Easy_Rider: Yes, he is a lucky dog - however, he's enjoying the top down experience only as long as the speed is below 50km/h or so, above, he's curling himself as low as possible on the back seats.

    @Alex18_996CC: Yes, the neighbours - I live in a rather small town (population approx. 600) - so we're quite the talk of the town currently. My immediate neighbour and especially his son are crazy about cars, so the GT3 is more of a joy to them than a disturbance.

    @Conny997: You know, they say that dogs adapt to their master. Our dog is not only cute but also very intelligent... Smiley

    Fantastic shots mate, what a wonderful location too. The backdrop scenery is beyond stunning! Your dog must love the older 911

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    993Targa:

     Perfect combo, high performance and classic 911.

    But seriously, you need to change the rear license plate to a normal "straight" one, looks so much better. Not being Swiss I'm always surprised that people here drive brand new expensive cars with old worn or badly fitting license plates. In CH the license plate is linked to the owner, not the car. It only cost CHF35 to replace them and you keep the same number? Maybe one of the native Swiss can clarify? 

     

    @993 Targa - just for you exclusively, finally got the plates last Thursay... ;)

     Now you can finally take it out of the garage! Smiley Smiley


    Re: 21 years of Guard Red

    very nice. Please keep them coming.  Smiley


    Re: 21 years of Guard Red

    Nice Matt! Like I said before, I won't be able to enjoy Switzerland anymore, I'll constantly be on the lookout for this red danger when I'm there!.

    And regarding the dogs: In The Netherlands, we say that people start to resemble their dogs after a while, so you better be happy that you chose a cute intelligent one! :-)

    Keep the dog long enough and you'll be just fine...

    Joost:

    Matt, thanks so much! This is exactly what I was hopin for when I saw your first pics of the GT3.

    The only thing is; next time I'm in CH, I'll be wondering around, looking very suspiciously at all those beautiful chalets, trying to spot the garage with the red 911s ;-)

    Hey Joost, sorry, must have overlooked your posts.

    Just be careful when you're wondering around suspiciously in my area. There's this dangereous, manhunting dog. He will jump right in front of you, throw himself on his back and show you his belly if you don't obey... He's way more dangereous than the Red... ;)

    PS: There's even a chance to get a cup of coffee should you ever be near to my place.
