Video: Porsche 968 ClubSport

I was watching a Harry’s Garage video last night and it prompted me to the fact that I hadn’t put together my video for my Porsche 968 CS yet. Bad me! OK, I’m no Harry Metcalfe when it comes to enthusiastic presentation. I have to get a little more comfortable in front of a camera. But here it is: my Porsche 968 CS. The video goes for about 8 minutes and I hope you enjoy it. Apologies in advance for the rattly audio during the driving sequence. It’s my GoPro housing. I need to find a solution for that. —— […]

Even the external door handles […]

Porsche 968 ClubSport

I’m very pleased to (finally) share some photos of my new pride and joy – my 1995 Porsche 968 CS. I picked this car up last Tuesday in Melbourne at the end of our road trip up the east coast of Australia. The purchase story’s a bit complicated. I went to the mainland with the idea of returning with a Porsche 944. I got to Melbourne early and drove two 944’s prior to Mrs Swade coming over for the road trip – a 944 S2 and a 944 Turbo. The first car I drove was the S2 and I was […]
