    Thanks for the Lamborghini pics, I really enjoyed them. Smiley

    Many were rentals? How come? 

    You are welcome.  Apparently it is not uncommon for people to rent cars to participate in the various rallies.  This was an official Lamborghini one, so maybe owners didn't want to put a lot of miles on their own cars and so rented some?Smiley 

    Weird but understandable. 

    Incomprehensible to me. I wonder if in fact they are not owners at all Smiley? On a positive note, what wonderful human beings your friends are @lexs4 to bring up their own children and then raise another family Smiley.

    I realize it kind of defeats the purpose of sharing when you can't see the smiling faces, but visited some old neighbors to let their kids see the car.  They are a tremendous family having adopted five children from China, two of whom have special needs.  This after having raised their own kids who are adults now.  The kids always loved seeing my cars, so was great to see them again and let the kids see the new purple one.  It got very good reviews indecision
     

    Lexs4, on behalf of those kids; thank you so much for doing this! You may not realize it, but it's very well possible that you have made a life long impression on them. I remember when I was 19 and a guy living a couple of streets away from us saw me looking at his 944 turbo and instantly offered me a ride, even though I didn't know him... It was maybe a small effort on his behalf, but I couldn't stop smiling for days, and I promised myself I would do the same when I finally get my dream car.

    What a great story Joost Smiley 

    Amazing as I had a very similar thing happen to me when I was maybe 9 or 10.  There was a Ferrari 308 parked across the street from my grandmother's house and in my small town that was shocking to see.  We asked if it was okay for me to look at it and the gentleman did the same for me and took me for a ride despite not knowing us.  I still have the picture of me sitting in the car with a huge smile on my face.  He told me to work hard in school and I could maybe have a car like his one day.  That really stuck with me growing up, I try to repay what he did for me by doing the same for kids who show interest in my cars.


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Funny, in my case it was a friend's of the family and I was 16 and the car was a brand new F40... never forgot that experience and stuck with me as well and makes you want to do the same.

    When I was very young it was an occasionally parked Countach LP400 in my hometown. I really loved the crackles and smell of oil.

    But what I thought was much cooler was the car of the boyfriend of my neighbour: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messerschmitt_Kabinenroller Much better than all the GTI, GSI, XR3 hothatches

    Now, tell us... what steered you away from Ferrari to Porsche after that experience? You hardly come across as a fan of the brand.

    While the F40 to me is the most beautiful car design even made, and appreciate Fcars for what they bring to the sportscar world, I couldn't ignore for long the reality that Porsche fits me personally much better kiss

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Got to drive the 992 today.  Wow is it a quick car, dampening was also very good.  Steering definitely better than my old 991.1 S.  The door handles seem needlessly complicated, could do without them.  Oh and while they look nice the touchscreens I dislike, have to concentrate so much just trying to select something.  Pretty car, but still not quite sold on the rear yet.  Some of it is all the writing back there, which of course could be blacked out or deleted.

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    I like the front sports apron (part of the sports pack or can be ordered individually) more than standard but regarding the rear of the sports pack, I am not so sure.

    My car visited its big brother at my buddy’s new shop.  Helped him with the centerlocks.  In all black it’s definitely menacing.  Not sure about the yellow film on the headlights.
