Yea, I've had the car for about 15 years. Took me to great places, gave me wonderful memories and made me bond friendships all over the world.

Since the guys doing the overtake did not stop and nobody can identify them, the police have blamed me for driving outside of my lane and the result will either be i pay a fine or i get my licence suspended.

Insurance wont pay for my car
I lost the tub, and everything that was damaged during the crash.
I can always transplant to another tub but not sure i want two 924s again since i always had a hard time choosing between which to drive(even the day of the crash) and had little time to spend on them...so maybe i'll keep the 931 for now since i love it as it is, its a bit lonely in the big garage but i'll see if i want to rebuild the GTS wannabe at a later time.

I'm not too upset about the car, it was my life long project but it owed me nothing. I had more fun and happiness out of that car than effort and money I put into. I reached this thought years ago when I said, if today this car bursts into flames and nothing comes of it I'm still going to be happy for the great time it made me have. So I guess that day has come, and added to the great experiences it gave me one more thing, walk out of a severe crash without even a scratch.

I cant recommend the 924s enough for what they can offer from the moment you're thinking of buying one up until their last moment.

Many thanks to everybody sending in kind words and help offers.

This really was a loved car, everybody loved it.

I'm very sorry to be the one to have the bad luck of crashing it, but also I'm grateful to it for countless and priceless moments that I will forever remember. I respected the car and to the very end it treated me right.

Who knows, i may bring it back someday in one way or the other

Somebody once told me that the 924 is my guardian angel...guess now its the 931s turn to take care of me...at least for a while.

Here are just a few of some of the pics i love of this car.

This may seem a dumb question but those gold trimmed rims are photoshopped right ? Damn those look good...

Its not just my loss, its everybody's loss as many loved that 924.
We're like a big family, we and our 924s.

Life moves on, nothing lasts forever.
Enjoy your 924s.
