Interior of my car. Midnight Blue and Classic Grey is a great 
combination (IMHO). Walnut dash etc is a more controvertial fitment, popular in Saudi Arabia where my car was first delivered. Overall I'd prefer it without but the rest of the car was too good to pass up.

Different Strokes for different folks

Having Fun at Le Mans

My friends and I at Le Mans 2001. Our camp surrounded by my car, Gordon Lees' 3.2 Carrera and Dave Fisher's '77 3.0 Carrera. Did we get wet? Has Pinocchio got a wooden dick? We wore Hawaiian shirts during the post race track invasion (here we are in the pits) so that we could spot ourselves on TV. It didn't work! 

Bravery Fun

Wiring Woes
"95 Model year 993's have been known to experience problems where the engine wiring 
harness insulation breaks down, leading to short circuits and eventually burn out!"
Thanks to EJ for sharing his finding, you can find more information about the engine harness issue under EJ's web site
