    just taking a minute to introduce myself.

    bought the car 4 years ago smooth as silk only done 20,000 miles in the previous 6 years (used as a second car only), sounds great, NOT.

    Because it was standing for long periods things start to cease up like the electric cooling fan. Not much of a problem when your only doing short runs like the previous owner, BUT when i began driving 300 / 400 miles a week things took a turn for the worst, and one day whilst playing with a 911 the inevitable happened, HEAD GASKET oops.

    So being a little financially embarassed i took the car off the road for a while.

    Now i've got a new (24,000 miles) engine fitted and i'm ready to rock and roll again.

    cheers
    Jeff
