As a bonus I found the indicator on the instrument panel lights up :cool:

That's really neat!! I always thought of picking one of these up for cheap from craigslist haha. Seems like a nice fun beginner Porsche. I'm guessing not much has been done with that post?

It good to hear that everything is working out for you dude.

And as far as the 944 goes, just drop a LS1 in there and couple of suspension upgrades and you will be A.G all good.

:lol:

I dunno what it is about CAT employee's and STI's, but I've got three buddies here with them as well.....plus another (red) Z06

FYI Karl, there may be a CAT-centered track day at Autobahn in either June or Sept in case you're interested
