I have an opportunity to buy a 1990 944 S2 Cab with 36k miles original owner. Always garaged etc. Car has been serviced and is in meticulous shape. I drive a 911 996 cab which is great. Should i even consider this car? Are these cars mechanical nightmares. Obviously any 20yr old car will be some kind of headache. I don't plan on driving it regularly just another toy. What does anyone think? Run for the hills?

correct car type (several places)

It all depends on the price. I think these are overall good vehicles but timing belt/water pump maintenance, front suspension parts and clutch work is very expensive on this model. Have you even driven the vehicle to see if you're keen on it?

I am also looking att a 1990 944 S2 Cab. This one has about 90.000 miles on it. It has had one owner for about 15 years and has a stack of receipts. It looks new in and out. It had a new clutch about 10,000 miles ago. Price is about $10k.

Any other advice or words of wisdom?
