The car came into his possession in 1986 when he bought it from the
second owner in Texas. Being a midwest resident, Karl realized that he
had to take extra care to ensure the car never saw the snow during the
salty winter driving season. Despite it being a seasonal car, he still
managed to put over 200,000 miles on the odometer.
The engine has been fully serviced twice in its lifetime. The transmission was serviced by Brad Mayeur years ago and is still running strong. Other than that the car is completely unmodified and Karl has noticed the interest in it increasing as the years go by. As an added bonus, his PCA show-car placard was included with his submission and has been listed below. Thank you for sharing this great piece of Porsche history Karl, we hope to see it on the road for many miles to come!
