How many pics of your 986 do you have?

I'm sure there are some doubles and some are not my car, but most are. This is about 3/4 of what I have
A lot of those which appear to be doubles are actually from slow walk around shots whilst continually snapping pictures.

I'm approaching 1000...I counted about 800 here and I have several folders that I didn't open

Still, your car is impeccably clean. Those headlights do tie it up, though

LOL

Over a decade and I might have 20 pictures total. I usually delete anything that I don't think was perfectly snapped.

I've also never put a picture of the car on any social media.

I can honestly (and with bowed head) say I have never taken a picture of my car, other than parts during repairs. I do have a couple that were taken during a DE event. Turn 6 at Homestead, hard on the gas.
