Impact Bumpers

And that... really was the end of that....

Recommended Posts

Insurers have paid out, tax refunded and DVLA slip to say after 10 years and 3 months I know longer own a Porsche. :(

Three things to take from this:

1) Replace your fuel lines with appropriate stuff

2) Have a fire extinguisher in the car- not powder, so water or foam. Something to cool a fire down.

3) Keep your agreed valuations up to date with JG.

All in all the whole process has been pretty good- apart from delaying recovering the car back to the UK, the claims handlers, Classicline and insurers (ERS) have been great to deal with.

Life goes on....

So, as one Ronnie said to the other:

”It’s goodbye from me”

”And it’s goodbye from him”

”Goodbye”

Bloody hell. Sorry to read that Doc. Glad it’s worked out financially at least but still a whole lot of emotion invested in that car I’m sure. What’s the plan?

Plan? 

No plan right now: maybe more gin and a curry tonight.

In a slightly longer term? Let’s get “Brexit” out the way first and have a think...

Fraser - at least your Saab has impact bumpers ;)

I'll buy you a burger at the next south east meet if I ever get out of work in time!

....... and 50k to go car shopping is a nice consolation prize right 🤑

Need a hand finding the next car?

:( sad end to one of my favourite cars on here

Was a favourite not because it was the most expensive, coolest or fastest but it's been to and seen more places than probably all the other cars on here have done collectively

:signs118::cool: thank you Fraser!

You must be relieved it's all over, a significant weight off your mind no doubt. Good luck with whatever you go for, there are loads of fabulous makes and models to choose from.

Everything has a silver lining, now £50k gets you a cracking 981 Cayman GTS

That's a shame for such a great well travelled  car to end it life like that,

 Onwards and upwards though Fraser,  hope you stay in the Porsche group.

Good luck with whatever the future brings Fraser, I am sure you will still loiter on the IB board.

Good or bad everything in life passes, you sure had more fun in your car than anyone else I know. Good luck with the new motoring chapter.

I will be dragging him along to the Alps kicking and screaming if necessary.  He is mission critical to success, because he has BTDT on just about every road you could ever hope to drive in the Alps. ;)

he makes a handy camera man in the passenger seat too, to capture the flavour of the trip :)
