I don't recall the bass line or the drum beat, but I remember the melody...

Back in the dark ages, an actual print magazine (remember those?) - probably 'Car&Driver' - asked readers to send in suggestions for music to listen to while driving. I don't remember any response but one, where some genius wrote in to say:

"Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon' while driving at night between cities, very fast."

 
 

Francesco Tiepolo

It all began with the usual chat.

"Porsches are the strongest." 

"No, you don’t know what you’re talking about; Ferraris are the strongest.

Porsches might be strong on the track and in rallies, but Ferrari's 0-100km/h times, Ferrari 's max speed..." On and on it goes.

Then comes the idea; a challenge on track.

“He who hesitates is lost” the old proverb goes….and if you’ve played in this car game long enough, like I have, you should have learned how true that old saying is by now. 

Sometimes, though, it takes getting smacked in the head to remind yourself to go with your gut, do not pass go, do not collect $250 and just “buy” that little space that luck and fate landed you on.   So was the case with Chassis number 000007, possibly the oldest known 924 Turbo that I stumbled upon by accident in search of a parts car for the restoration of chassis #99. If you are looking for a happy ending here…stop reading now; otherwise, settle back and join in the frustration.
