would you pick a porsche between those 3 choices? hell...I've never owned a real sports car in my life. my dad has an Audi A-6 and that's as close as I've ever been to driving something like what we're talking about here. I do think the Eyetalians have more style than the germans when it comes to sports cars tho.

Obviously I'd rather have a Lambo or Ferrari. I'd sell the car, buy a 911, and pocket the difference. :D

hey, scotty, he ever let you drive it, or not?
Sure, I've driven it a lot. As awesome as it is to drive, I'm nervous to mess it up, so I prefer to be in the passenger seat.

I'd take a Lamborghini or Ferarri over a Porsche.
They're even tougher to fit a kids seat into... I can fit my roadbike with wheels off into the hatch of my P-car.

Check out my dad's '82 911SC.
Very clean. Nice original shape. A pic of mine, in the driveway clutter, with Mrs. ThinkCooper posing is below.

My 951 is a little more pedestrian, except for how it's tuned. Most recent dyno trip we got it up to 337hp @5200 rpms at the rear wheels with a flat torque curve that peaked at 310ft/lbs. That works out to somewhere in the ball park of 375 HP at the crank.I don't know what to do with it. I hardly ever drive it these days (can't afford to get back on the track now), and I haven't been enjoying wrenching on it after doing a complete tear down and rebuild on the engine last summer. If I keep it, I'll reshoot the color this summer. Maybe install a vented nose to help the intercooler breath and make it look a little tougher.

and now for the pic...

That's because I'm a pimp. Ask von.
No, it's cause you're the anti-cooper, and BJ2K is as close to cooper chimera-twin as possible. She's all cooper'd out. ;)

Being pimp helps, but funny counts for more.

Mine is Carmen Red Metallic with a tan interior.
