Hello to all!<p>I have owned a 93 960 wagon since 1996 and over 100k of driving miles and just found the group while trolling through the brick board.<p>I'm in Phila PA and an avid DIY car mechanic who does most of my own repair work.<p>I need to do my own work, I have 4 cars and most of them are b*stard stepchildren of their marque!<p>In addition to the 960 which is denegrated by the 240 and the FWD crowd, I have a Porsche 928 which is likewise snubbed by the 911 owners and a Mercury Capri, a Miata pretender that Ford dropped after 4 years.<p>The 4th car is POS Dodge Daytoam that I've kept running for 17 years and 225,000 miles though its days are numbered as I'm looking to replace it with a 93 960 sedan.<p>The wife and I really like these cars, she is the main driver of the wagon, so I've decided to buy another.<p>I'm looking forward to seeing some folks at the GTG in a few weeks at Stillman's.<p>I'll be in the "slammed" Marroon 965 with IPD sport suspension!!<p>See y'all then!

I was just going to invite you to Stillman's, so I guess I'll have to settle for saying welcome, and you had me up until the Daytona thing. You can keep that one.<p>My wife had one when we were dating. With 65K on the odo it had an oil leak and caught fire a week after being in the Dodge dealer for a recall so it wouldn't leak oil and catch fire. Their answer...."We'll give you a great deal on this demo Neon that we have". Not likely. We traded it on a pristine '93 VW Corrado SLC. It was a lot of fun for a while, but then we traded that for an 850R. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Anyway, more info than you needed.

Welcome to Swedespeed!<p>Glad to see another 960 owner here. We will have to give those FWD folks a run for their money because they can't beat our silky smooth RWD inline-6'ers can they? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Or maybe they can...hahaha...<p>Hey, I also think that the 928 was a bad-arse car, so take that 911 owners!<p>-Drew
