doug,
congrats on the purchase. looks to be a great foundation for a hot rod.
lots of great cars here to draw inspiration from.
i've always liked the autofarm 68S as pictured above. i have an older issue of octane with several great pics of the car. why not do a replica of that car? it really wouldn't involve any body work or new panels. things i would do: paint 911T badge and decklid p script in alum silver, remove bumper and rocker trim, silver bumper tape, plain chrome bumper guards, H4s, talbot, lightweight hood crest decal, lower to euro specs, duel exhaust. i think those little mods would really transform the car without breaking the bank.
keep us posted and thanks for th ekind words. here is more of an updated pic:

"alum silver"

I'm just looking for something like that... Thx.

randy - rust-oleum bright coat metallic finish aluminum v7715. see sample here:
http://d240157.u39.zeonhost.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4424&highlight=911r+mirror

i have this thing against mixing metal finishes only because i'm kinduv funny like that - no gold and silver, no brushed and polished, etc.

Timo,
Feeling your914 big time. What's up with the suspension
and brakes? Looks like a blast.

edit: Looked at your site. Great pics and write up.

Timo...while I'm looking for 911s, I'm certainly no 911 snob! Nice 'teener! I'd still like to own one someday...especially a six.

Bob, thanks for the encouragement. I'm pretty much thinking along the lines of what you're saying. My only hesitation is I'm not really fond of the brown, so ultimately I'll want to do a color change. Because of that, I hate to put money/effort into re-painting bumpers brown (sans trim) if I'm going to paint them a different color in a year or two. Still, you never know...

But yes, I like the idea of simple and clean. I may not even do any Porsche script down the sides, just the single line like the Autofarm car.

But there's plenty of time to think about that. Right now I'm just anxious to spend some time in the car and really see what I've got! I go to pick her up tomorrow!

While painting truly IS the last thing on my mind right now...how do you think my car would look in this color?

Zeke, I love the tow hook location. I can't tell, but is the grill still on? What is the hook attached to? Any structural reinforcements to the area? (BTW, the car looks damn good! I wouldn't have thought it, but the yellow lenses look great too.)

I agree, That is a beautiful car. I note that it is Gulf blue. I thought Gulf blue was the blue of the John Wyer 917s. I like this color much better.

My 67S

Thanks for the compliments!

There were 2 Gulf Blues....67, and 73, obviously different color codes. This Gulf blue is the same blue that's in the lettering "GULf".

I may bring it back to Monterey next year...but I have a 67S softie that may make the cut instead...

Here's a couple more pics....



thanks again!!!!
Eric

Gary Emory (Parts Obsolete) had "stacks" of those cocomats for years...he finally sold out of them. I believe though...that you can get a near perfect copy from the "cocomat" guys that advertise in the usual places...
