James,
yep that was a bummer. It had a nice five-hour layover at SFO because of some stupid United Airlines rule. Maybe next time.

Back to the original question...

Be sure you distinguish things that MAKE your car a hot rod, as opposed to things that just make it LOOK like a hot rod. In the latter category are RS type door panels, type R tialilights (when you still have a heavy steel engine lid, A/C etc.), Al floor panels, and numerous other expensive bric-a-brak that does nothing for performance.

we were definitely inspired by the "hot rod" attitude of r gruppe when putting together this '65. The power comes from a 2.2l carb engine, m- brakes in front,hd konis on all 4 corners, 7R fuchs wheels on the rears , lightweight sidings and speedster seats inside. A real fun car to drive.

...agreed. Although I do want a specific "look". See the latest GT: Purely Porsche for there article on the 911T Rallye car for what I'd like to end up with (without the 906 mechanicals of course!!).

Yes, as soon as I get replacements. May take about a month or so. If you want them...I hope you're thin.
