Adam (crewsfactor) purchased his first Porsche in June 2002. He had an obsession for automobiles (especially those of German origin) since High School. Many subscriptions to automotive magazines resulted from this. Screws was Adam's direct link to Porsche racing; first through observing Autocrossing events (Screws driving a BMW 318is) and then the purchase of Screws' 951.
Infected with the desire and looking ahead to the future, Adam planned on buying
a Porsche upon graduation of college (assuming employment), but was not sure
if he should buy an older 968 or a newer 986. The Screws951 was to have a major
effect on Adam's decision later. The Screws951 underwent marathon surgery
and caused major headaches for roughly two years (see Screws' bio). Observing
and occasionally helping (especially the pesky clutch pin) with the agonizing
tear-down and re-build, this experience helped with the future decision of buying
As a result, in June 2002, Adam bought his first Porsche, a loaded 2001 986
with 5k miles. The crewsfactor TBD.
