    We have a body shop not far from home and there is hardly a week goes by without one in for some serious rebuilding, usually rear end ;)

    Beautiful car but never liked those whale tails...it just ruined the lines of the car IMHO. Here's a 930 Speedster sans tail.:thumbsup:

    The whale tail is... ostentatious? But I actually like the look of that car as a whole, and it was one of my dream cars at the time. 300HP... hold 'em back.

    Fun to drive, until you give it a little too much power or brakes in a downhill corner and the ass end becomes the front.

    "Gates 959"

    The "Gates 959" is an infamous car, one of the Porsche 959s built in the mid-eighties, imported by Bill Gates to the United States in 1987. Gates' fellow Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen imported another one, as did Porsche collector Jerry Seinfeld. These cars had not been approved by regulators and had no Department of Transportation and Environmental Protection Agency approval. The "Gates 959" was stored for 13 years by the Customs Service at the Port of Seattle, until regulations were changed to allow "Autos of Interest" to be imported with severe limitations on their use. Gates and Allen both helped pass the "Show and Display" law.

    Amazing what a few billion in the bank can accomplish.
