Jim's 1983 Porsche 944

I have always loved working on cars. When I first got to Stanford, I needed a car, something practical I thought.

Then I spotted this 1983 Porsche 944 at a car dealer in San Carlos. So instead of a practical secondhand 90s Toyota, I ended up getting an 80s dreamcar. Sometimes the least practical choices are the most thrilling (just look at a Ferrari).

It always amazes me that a 1983 Porsche gets 32mpg and a new Mustang gets 18-19mpg. I recently replaced the starter motor (pictured below). The replacement motor is a smaller, higher torque model from a 1990 Porsche. The result was much smoother starting and more Sunday drives on Skyline Blvd.
