Four Years of 944
Sep 19, 2017
I bought my 944 four years ago. I intended to keep it for a few months and then sell it, but fell in love with it and now I don’t think I’m going to sell it even if their value has more than doubled or tripled since I got it. I’ve had good offers to buy it from more than a bunch of people. Even the former owners regret selling it.
It’s been a really great car, way better than I expected. I love to drive it, and even though I don’t drive it as much as I would like, every time I take the wheel I feel like a little kid again.
Now that my father is in town, I took the opportunity (and his know-how 1) to replace the rear crankshaft seal that was left leaking from the clutch job last year 2. It’s a massive job that requires the removal of most of the transmission out of the car. It took us a few days, but it’s done, it doesn’t leak oil anymore and the car is back on the road again.
I’m all bruised of working on the car, but pretty happy!
