Well, my dad seems to think he needs more cars so, he bought 2 additional Porsche's to add to the 4 he has already. I'm sure everyone's itchin to make a ****ty comment but, he worked all his life and made himself what he is today so, **** it he likes cars.

1969 Porsche 912 Targa soft window. The soft window is very rare and will only increase in value. His is British racing green which I find kind of funny. The shop I work at is repainting the car to the factory shade of green. It's a very clean car and only has 55K original miles and is 1 owner.

It looks identical to this:

1996 Porsche 993 Turbo. A sought after car as it's the last of the air cooled 911. IMO, the best looking 911 ever. Very clean, rare color, low mileage (9K), 1 owner car that will also increase in value. See a theme now?

What a great day he must have had.

he will also be adding these to the collection.

To answer the inevitable question, he's a petroleum engineer.

Good for Dad! I'm surprised to hear that you think people on this forum would be looking to make s***ty comments. I highly doubt it. This is a forum of car people. Many of us have a lot more than one car toy. If they're your passion and you have the means, why not?

He's made a couple of great choices there from the investment/desirability perspective.

May he enjoy them in good health!

The 993 Turbo is very-very nice. Great color combo. The 356 is also very beautiful.

Those are some nice cars!
My dad has always wanted a soft window targa. Maybe I'll buy him one someday soon.
I would be interested in seeing some pictures of the actually cars.

petroleum engineer? I hope his work give him free gas

Seriously, can you list out his entire collection (all cars) and post pictures of all the cool ones? That is one sweet porsche collection, but it still needs a boxster.

If he already has 6, what is 1 more, right?
