    Today, after nearly 41 years on this planet I realised one of my dreams - to own a Porsche 911. This is an emotional experience for me, not just because I own a 911, but rather it serves as a reminder of what I had to do to get here. All the crummy jobs, being unemployed, getting ripped off by people, the daily grind and in recent years the quite unreasonable dedication and 7-day weeks that have helped Overclockers UK become the success it is today. This car is a symbol of what can be achieved by anyone who wants something badly enough.

    Now, having got that off my chest, here are the pics I took today. Enjoy.

    Whoah, lovely motor. I have been a passenger in one of these once and have to say it was one of the most memorable automobile experiences ever. Whiplash guaranteed :D

    What sort of spec is it?

    Absolutely superb, in both looks and quality :)

    Also the little speech is hitting home slightly and could be quite motivational if i were in the right frame of mind.
