Took the 996 out yesterday for a 400 mile run. Had a great time.

On the way back I pulled in to fuel up and was behind another 996. It was a C4S. Man.....it sounded like a bag of spanners and smoke and stink coming out the back. Spoke to the old guy who owned it. He said he's had the car 3 years, bought it used and done 40,000 miles and that "IT HAD ALWAYS SOUNDED LIKE THAT AND ALWAYS SMOKED". He thought it was normal. He then said it has been his most reliable car. It really sounded bad as he drove off. Crazy I tell you.

Sounds like the old man won't have a car in a few years. The symptoms will catch up to this car. Smoking is a sign of bad things.

Hey Berny, so you're in Liverpool, right?

It sounds like a scene from a British comedy, I can almost hear the guy's accent. :)
