I did pm Gunner. He was very helpful and he has valid points. I very much appreciate his input, it will help me to prepare for my journey. I still feel good about the purchase and look forward to my stop in Austin!

Isuzusweet, you called it. It's all good.

I almost walked away from the 94 Diesel Classic I now own. It was a lot of work and cash to get it running, but I sure love it now!

AWESOME! Happy trails and just remember the inmates here just want to help you with any restoration or maintenance tips.

Welcome to the asylum.
Cheers
Tony

SebasSF, I would LOVE to find a diesel classic. That would be the holy grail for me. I'll cut my teeth on the rigs that I own now until a diesel comes around that is not priced sky high. My '99 diesel Cutter drives like a dream, and has a beautiful interior, I just do not like the same-as-everybody-else exterior.

Isuzusweet, I feel the pull into the asylum! This is how I do things though, get into something and fall deeply. I got into Porsche 968's, and now I've owned 5 of them! I whittled it down to one uber rare, magnificently dialed-in example. I had amazing help, and made great friends through the 968 forums. I am looking forward a similar situation here. Thank you for allowing to lean on you and the "crew" during my journey.

Ryker,

If you pass through South Mississippi/New Orleans, area, let me know. We can serve as a support crew for this section of the journey. Always up to meeting up with a fellow nut case, I mean Classic enthusiast!

I'm located a bit south of I 80 in northern Az. Have truck and tools and willingness to help in this area.
Will be in Hawaii mid Dec - early Feb. Otherwise another helpful way point along the possible route.

Think of the stagecoach routes with stops along their way. We can try to put together a route lined with helpful crazies, I mean enthusiasts available for support.

It does take a while to build a feeling of confidence in the reliability of these old beasts.
Let me think, two years full timing and over 20k miles. And I'm starting to a bit of confidence, not so totally in its reliability, but in my being able to manage its issues in route. Increased since now I tow a dingy with me while on longer trips that can help with parts runs.

Actually my 345 has been remarkably reliable on the road.

It sounds like you are building quite the fleet, so you have already gained some hands on experience with keeping these beasts going.

I think you will have a fun and memorable trip ahead.

Cheers Richard

Not a problem although I'm a 928 fan myself, especially the fairly rare row your own GTS version. I almost bought one, but watched Top Gear that night when May drives his childhood dream car, the Lambo Countach.......He hated it.

If I win big a Singer 964 resto mod would look great in the garage(I couldn't imagine towing it) but I could never tell the wife how much it cost.

Cheers
Tony

PS Glad to see a lot of friends on your route willing to help if needed.

tevake, I love it! Is that a 911SC? My first P-Car was a 1982 911 SC with a whale tale in charcoal. I love the idea of a stagecoach route. It does make me feel better that I will have help along the way in the event that something happens. And looking forward to meeting like-minded nut cases, like yourself and wxbuoy and others.

Isuzusweet: So, I didn't want to show my true colors but I currently own 2 928's, an 88 and an 87; and strangely, I am selling both to purchase a 1993 GTS 5 speed black/charcoal from a buddy of mine.

I don't tow my 87 Carrera Cab, but it's tempting!

Isuzusweet, are you on Rennlist? Small community and you're clearly a 928 lover.
I had an '87 S4 and a few other P-cars. Loved them all. Sold them for a crusty motorhome for my family to play with and never looked back.
