1990 Porsche 911 Description

This is my personal car... the one that feels like MY car. But I need to sell it. It's like I woke up one day and realized that I had four kids...
Anyway, this is a great car. Stays in the garage every night and most days. Sometimes, I don't start it for a week, as I live in California and work in Seattle. NEVER has it left a drop of oil on the floor. Never has it failed to start at first bump. It's also a joy to drive. Very tight. I've had it looked over by two Porsche shops, and both have insisted that I not mess with the engine. To have one that runs this strong and is so tight and then take it apart, they say, would be asinine. So I listened to them and have enjoyed it greatly.
I'm the third owner, though the second really only put a couple thousand miles on it. She received it from the will of her uncle, the original owner.
The bad? The shift boot got ripped when I replaced the nasty stock one with an aftermarket one. The front bumper, as you can see, needs resprayed, as does the hood. I'd spray the front if I weren't selling. The rest of the car looks awesome and very shiny. I think maybe the original owner had a bra on it.
When I bought it, it had 986 Boxster wheels on it. Heresy. So I got a set of Cup wheels (real, as I know the owner well), lowered it on H&R springs, put some 5mm Elephant spacers on it to get the stance right and called it a day. Well, I also installed a nice Blaupunkt head unit with Bluetooth and some really nice JL Audio speakers, but nothing was cut. All in OEM sizing. I also replaced the rear taillight bar with OEM parts so it looks bright and nice, again, as you can see in the pics.
The car needs nothing but a front respray and a new shift boot to be a really great driver.
Let me know if you have any questions.
