what is owning a classic 911 like?
Very rewarding. IMO, 911 > M5 in everyway except M5 can sit 4 people. Cost of ownership is way cheaper than M5 too. Comparing 911 to M5 is like comparing apple to orange and each has its own plus & minus. But if I can only have one weekend toy, 911 is my choice. If you live in UK you can get parts easily since you have a large population of 911. Pistonheads has many of them in their classified section.
Overhere, population on 911 (pre 996) is almost nonexistent, all of these cars (911, M5, 190E) were never officially sold here, all came in through diplomatic channel, with the exception of C36AMG of which 40 were imported when APEC (Asia Pacific Economy Conference) was held here in 1994. But with internet, car forums and Ebay you can always find parts.
