We are Pleased to Announce
the arrival of
the red on white on black 1986 Porsche 944,
a bouncing new sister for
the triple black 1988
Porsche 928 S4.
As a good friend used to say, the measure of a fast woman is how fast she
gets you into trouble. Using this metric Mariah
was very fast indeed.
The 928 is the only production level V8 Porsche has produced to date, and a
very close relative actually set a stock land speed record in 1987. She has very
exotic tastes, and is emphatically not receptive to a cheap date with the
Scooter, on the other hand, is more
the type you would take home to introduce to mother. Having half the cylinders,
she is perhaps a little less liable to plunge into excess, has simple tastes and
has that steady, dependable look.
Scooter was previously owned (no......
cherished) by a nice little old lady who had the foresight to lower and stiffen
the suspension, invest in 17" performance mag wheels, furnish sticky wide
tires, polish strategic areas of the headers, tinker with the accelerator cam,
affix aerodynamically advantageous front end trim and shell out for a tuned
performance exhaust. Oh yes, there was a short shift package, but we took that
out............. a trifle imprecise.
Not to be blinded by lust, we called in an appraiser. The appraiser was
entranced and rhapsodized in particular about the sensuous curves of the exhaust system
A quick trip to the CIBC
Line of Credit, and there we
were......... a bigger happy family.
will take to the track
sometime in August following a visit with Henry at Refined Motor Sports, while Mariah
will continue to fly over the beautiful
winding roads of the Bruce Peninsula just off Lake Huron here in Ontario Canada.
We would like to acknowledge the role of
TBM Technology in the financial aspects
of this initiative.
PS: Oddly, the nice little old
lady skipped town with the CD player and the five point seat belts.............
