Default My Porsche 944

So my car is an 83' Porsche 944 with 34k miles on it. I got it 3 weeks ago for around $5,000. The guy I bought it from had it in storage for 15 years so thats the reason for the low miles. Its got a set of BBS rims on it. It could use new paint as the paint on it now is faded, and the clear coat is cracked on the roof. Pics of it in the morning. I want to do things to it, but I know almost nothing about perfomance cars. Hopefuly I'll learn

Alright, heres the pictures as promised. Sorry for the qualiy, I'm not a pro photographer. There is one thing I forgot to mention that perhaps you peoples could give me help on. When the car is hot, as in sitting in the summer sun for a few hours, or about 10 minutes after driving it, it takes about 10-20 seconds of turning the key to start up. I am thinking this may be the fuel pump or filter? Is this way off? I have cleaned out the air filter.

Wow, looks like low milage cost a lot of money. But this thing is mint. I think that someone who has 19000 to spend on a perfect car would not be looking for an 1988 944.

Nice car man, I had a champagne 84, back in 86. I useed to love taking it up to the mountains and hit those windy roads. It handles like a dream. Nice find for 5k.

The 944 would probably get my vote as the best-looking Porche of all time... I'd love to have one, you got a great buy. Have fun.
