Good afternoon!

I bought a Porsche 924 off here last summer with plans and enthusiasm coming out of my ears. However after spending most winter evenings in the cold under the bonnet of various cars for various reasons I lost the enthusiasm and when the MOT expired on the 924 I SORN'd it and left it in the back under cover thinking 'I'll get the enthusiasm back when the summer comes'...

Summer came and has nearly gone... being busy with house projects and work etc have had little time for the 924 doing small jobs on it but not appearing to be getting anywhere...

So having a real crack at it yesterday, whilst on leave from work, I put my back out which made me think... 'right... time for a rethink'

Like I said the car has no MOT/Tax. Has had a slightly bad paintjob at some point. I'm pretty sure the radiator is having a wee... Passenger window is not working. Car runs ok but is a bit rough and tappety and other odd jobs need doing

I still have my girlfriends Seicento Sporting to play with if I'm bored and my truck I generally take to the garage for anything other than very small, simple tasks.

Is it time to move on?

If you made it to the end of my dull post - Thanks for reading smile

If your hearts not in it, then is there really any point carrying on? think

Simple answer I know, but if your not motivated it will never get done frown
