Hi,
My name is Adam, I live in Jersey (Channel Islands) my father passed away about two years ago and has left to me his 1987 924S. I have spent some money getting back to full running order. It has only done ~9000 miles since new. I am its second owner after my father. It has spent its whole life in a garage basically not moving. I would like to join a community to help share the joy of owning my 924S. It still has some issues which need working out so I will likely be hitting up the tech areas. Also where on the site can I pay the membership fee? Will it remind me after three months?
If any one is interested I have attached a photo. If people would like to see more let me know.
:smile:
Regards,
Adam Matson.

Welcome Adam.
That's a mighty impressive car at only 9000 miles.

Hi Adam, and welcome to a great club..... and what a beautiful car! I guess it's low mileage is because it's always lived on Jersey?

What's the driving like on Jersey? Can you even get out of 2nd gear?

The car looks fantastic and an unusual colour. You will find plenty of support on here.

Hi,
Thanks for the replies, I have been able to sign up fully now. As for some history of the car. It was purchased new locally by my father in 1987. It was not his daily driver. Most the miles, historically, have been UK miles. It was used to travel to and fro Portsmouth/Southampton/Weymouth/Jersey with a trip to Blackpool and back at one point, so my mother has explained to me. I have an early 90's photo graph I scanned in from a negative (added this to the photos as well) which was taken from a property we used to own in Weymouth. I have put a few miles on myself (In Jersey) after getting everything back to running order. I was taken to school in it once back in the early 2000s. But for pretty much all my life it has lived in our garage not moving and collecting dust. I have attached some more images for viewing pleasure. The garage shot is from my iPhone, the car park shots were taken by my friend. Who is in to photographing bikes and cars much better camera than my phone (many thanks to him). I feel he is captured most of my favourite features of the car. So i am still working on some issues:

- Have to "double tap" the ignition to start her 90% of the time (hot or cold).
- Some times the rev's drop when the throttle is blipped at idle (maybe to rich?)
- Fuel smell entering cabin, but only when windows are open (suspecting carbon canister or as above too rich)

I wont get to in to technical bits in this thread, but let's say she has burnt out a few fuel pumps getting her to where she is. I would love to take her to some shows and things over here, but at the moment that will not be happening. But as soon as the world starts turning again I want to get her out and about more.

Regards,
Adam Matson.
