Awesome job on the real car.  You may now join Anand and I in the ranks of the Super clean and meticulous club.. Welcome aboard. 

Ps. Santa was good to you!!!   I know that LEGO Porsche retails for $51,000...

Every time I look at the price of those LEGO’s I am amazed about how much they cost!...

I know for a fact Pat Downs son has about 2.2 million dollars worth of them.. 

 The sad reality?   They still hurt like hell when you step on them !!!

Much love

I made the ranks! YEAH BABY ! ! ! ! !

Good news and bad news. Bad news: I won't have Wihitewalker done before the SLO cruise. It has been very hard finding time - it was easier when the little one was still crawling around... now that she turns 4 today (crazy!!!)... my attention is with her more as it should be.

Good news: I was able to get away for a few hours and hang out with Greg and his crew yesterday. He helped do a quick oil change and once over before the SLO trip. He also found a slow leak of trans fluid at the end of the driver side swing axle. Of course, knowing that Greg is the man and a HUGE help, he fixed that for me too

Can't say it enough, Greg and is Crew are amazing and really help the love of this maddening madness.

And... my gas gauge decided to stop working... somehow... the ground wire got cut underneath the tank... his Crew made a quick repair too

Eleanor is ready for the big drive! See you all in SLO

And maybe I shouldn't post this... but I will anyways... LOL! Greg worked on a super-secret 2110cc engine combo that I heard is one bada@@ set-up I think I found the engine for the Coupe

Man. I’m feeling the lack of love for my Coupe build at the moment. Haven’t had time to do much. As the daughter gets older, the less time I have in the garage.

On a positive note, Santa came a bit early for my amazing wifey. 2020 Porsche Macan S (fully spec’d out). Dolomite Silver ext and black full leather int. She deserves it and more! New addition to the car family:

You're long overdue for an update no matter how small.

You are right good sir 😕

Lots going on in the House. Little one is turning 5 😳 and she’s going on 16, so that’s been the focus. Head Coach for her soccer team and now she is playing softball. Time in the garage has been limited. Last time I took the Speedster out the muffler can blew apart. Been working with Greg to try and get my Speedster up to his shop so that he can make a replace can with something a little more durable (he built the custom exhaust for me so it’s nice that he is taking care of everything. Coupe hasn’t sene much progress and I’m likely going to just give it to Greg and have his Team finish it all up since I don’t have much time anymore.

On a positive note, I couldn’t let my wifey be the only person with a daily driver Porsche. So I found this beauty down in San Diego. PCA owned, two owner, a rare “Launch Edition” (yes, the VIN code has a special lunch code for the first very few model 997.2), 2009 Porsche 997.2 C4S with only 49k on the ODO. Nothing like the a@@ of a C4S. Full records, well maintained, garage kept, and just halls a@@. I slapped new tires on, completed the 50k, and checked the OBD (I have the cable and software to run diagnostics on the car). No over revs and no codes. Just perfect. The 997.2 IMO are the last of the true “drivers” care before electronics took over.

In true LongFella fashion, I ripped the Center muffler out, straight piped it and added the “gundo mod” which slightly bypasses the two side mufflers. It’s sounds like a flat six should! Just rips through the PDK 7-speed.

Hope you all enjoy the update! The LongFella Family is still around and kicking. We do have this years SLO blocked in our calendar. Just need to get the room reserved. Hoping the coupe is done, if not, I’ve got the Speedster and maybe the wifey can drive the C4S ;-)
