Big Hello to all!

Hi all,

my name is Christian, i come from Germany and after a lot of Porsche aircooled projects and
some years in the ferrarichat i just found your great community in the web!

I´m really flashed about the big amount of great technic threads and the
remarkable kind interpersonal dealings.

Christian- Welcome again to you and your F430. Note you also have a 356 SC. My first car was a 1957 356A Normal. Not much power (60 DIN), but fun to drive. Long time ago, though, 1967.

Thanks a lot for the warm welcome.

I will start an extra thread in the F430 section,
because i made some upgrades and that woud be too much for this thread.

To my Porsche passion i can say that the 356 SC is the only Porsche by now.

My 993tt is for sale: DLS Showroom

Before i build that 993tt, i build a 964 Carrera 2 "sleeper" with turbo and watercooled intercooler without rearwing and i made two 993 Cabrio projects and some projects for friends.

I know that i will go back to the Porsche aircooled section again but it will always be together with Ferrari because the horses grap my heart in a very big way.

Herbie, our 356 is a California black plate car, second owner survivor,
with matching numbers (body, transmission and engine),
some nice extras, 100% untouched original interior
and complete history with all paper works and all bills from ´65 till today.

And it feels great and driving is big fun!

The car has the ultra rare hub excenter from factory
and so the ergonomy is really nice.

My Ex-964 "Sleeper", Carrera 2 look but an undercover turbo...

Was a pleasure to drive with the normal look but 1.250 Kg and 400 PS.

I keep on posting here...

I just saw that all newbies post the pics of the car in their introducing thread,
so i will do so, too.

My F430 is a 2008, 11.000 km, nero daytona, ceramic brakes yellow, scuderia shields,
carbon interior at the dashboard, sound system, black leather with black stiching and daytona style seats.

This is the first pic i saw from the seller:
