Nick your path and mine are uncannily alike - maybe due to the same inspiration. I really like the look of your back date - well done! Here are some pics showing what i started with (black) and what i ended up with (2015 Porsche Agate Grey). Your picture video shows a great story as well. I just pulled my engine and packaged it with the transmission for a rebuild. For me I wanted a mid 80's impact bumper car - that's what we dreamed about as kids!

They are indeed! Looks a nice job and I'm sure you love it.

New member here....and new 911 owner. My 85. This car has sat for 20 years untouched. After replacing the battery, a crank sensor and the tires, she runs and drives great!

Nice Targa Josh!

Says PNW, are you in the Seattle area? I have a Targa that sat for probably just as long as yours and brought it back to life over the last couple years.

There's a twin to my car just a few miles away as well.

Interesting that it has both the side markers on the fenders, and the bumper reflector/lights. Was it a ROW car?

Yeah...that would be cool. I've only had this car a little over a month now...and just love it! Been a dream to own a 911. Have more plans in store...juggling this between other projects. Lol

It is not an original Porsche colour. I wasn’t trying to match up to anything that came from the factory. The upholstery was done by a well respected shop in Victoria, BC called Tommy’s Upholstery.
