Under cover

The two Porsches have not turned a wheel since early July whilst I have been in hospital and recovering. I'm still not well enough to drive them so yesterday friend Warren came around to give them a run.
The 2.2 was very reluctant to start but we did eventually get it to fire before the batteries threw the towel in.
The 2.7 fired on the second turn of the key and much to my surprise there was almost no oil smoke on start up. After such a long lay off I was anticipating that quite a quantity of oil had got down the worn valve guides and into the cylinders.
Anyway they both ran well or so my test driver reports so I am lookig forward to taking them out in a few weeks.
