Richard,

I keep trying to get him to put a cage in his 600 SEL 6.3 hehe. It would run circles around the same era Jaguar 4-door Saloon that raced.

They just got back from Alaska last week so there is catching up and publication deadlines.

How is the “E” these days?

Best,
Grady

Grady - Lucky dog....sounds like you have a gem of a 510!! 2door original 5speed....I would make it a quick street car rather than convert it to a race car....love those 510s!!

I have an old Datsun Z myself, so Datsun blood runs deep in my veins.

Yasin,

Yes, there are actually three possibilities with it or any car
including a 911 or Z. It could be restored to original new
condition. It could become a competitive vintage racer. It
could be an outrageous Café Racer – a “Wolf in sheep’s
clothing” that is stock appearing.

I am the second owner, I bought it from my younger
brother in ’84. It has 110,371 miles.



My intention is to sell it and concentrate my efforts on
rejuvenating my original 914-6 CP/GT-2 for my son to race
(PCA, vintage, SCCA).




and build an exceedingly lightweight 911 for myself.

Best,
Grady

A lot of the 911's look like they are running two small mufflers out the back. Anyone know what exhaust that is?

Grady,

Thanks for listing the upcomming races. I am moving to Colorado in a couple weeks and would like to get out there to meet you and a couple of the other local pelicans. I'll be in Durango so I am pretty far away but it sure would be worth a visit. I'll have to look up the RMR PCA and see what I can find out. I'll try to help with some photo's too.

Rich

Alright, all I need to be track ready again are the rear sway bar reinforcements and an alignment/corner balance. Should be easy enough. I'm tentatively looking at the late August DE. See ya there!

You know I stopped by the event just by chance, I am looking at 140 car, their drivers, families friends etc. I still can figure out why they are closing 2nd creek, there can't be much else you can do with that land, it is right next to one of the most polluted spots in the country. Oh well as we all know politicians always know what is best for us.

Is this the same car?



I remember it at the D&G swap meet, Hergesheimer brought it out for show and tell. It was for sale and they were trying to drum up some interest.

I talked to Steve at Steve's independent porsche shop in Orange Ca, he said he knew that car well and did a bunch of the development of it, but it never got the bugs all worked out. That was several years ago, looks like it's working better now.

Kinda hard to call it a 914 since it has more 911 parts than 914 parts. About the only original part on it is the VIN plate

Brant please sign me up to live across the street from Rocky Mountain Arsenal so I can have children with 3 eyes and 7 legs.

re-try.. I'm trying to get the pictures bigger.

Jim,

its precisely that heavy population that is killing 2nd creek.
they want to sell it for houses... sheeesshhh.

oh well the good news is that they have another track in the works.
there are details for sure, but it sounds like the new track will far exceed anything that the clubs could afford to build.
it will only be 10 or 15 miles further away too, so not that far really.

pookie... yeah the twin exhaust is common. I've seen all brands. mine happen to be stainless borla's but I've seen ALL brands used

one more:


Jim,
I agree completely... I doubt any of those residents have a clue.
In fact on my way to the track on sunda I was boring my wife with my sarcasm about the arsenal lands on one side of the road, the housing developments on the other side of the road, and the lovely view of the GIANT mountain of garbage and the control towers of DIA just off in the distance. What a view!!!! I can't wait to sell my house and live out there....

the race track was actually attractive compaired to the rest of the "developments" out there.

Rich,

Welcome to Colorado.

Here are the links:

RMR-PCA
Durango is officially in the Alpine Mountain Region PCA
but RMR and AMR do everything together.

Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing

Colorado Region SCCA
Durango is officially in the Alpine Region SCCA but the
Colorado Region and Alpine Region do everything together.

Race tracks include:
Pueblo Motorsports Park
This is owned by the City of Pueblo and has a drag strip, 2.2 mi.
road course, moto-X, off-road and more. The 25c drags keep
the kids safe on weekend nights.

Second Creek Raceway (SCR)
SCR is owned by the clubs but was built 20+ years ago on leased
land. Houses are encroaching. We (SCR) has accumulated
enough cash to buy and build a new track. It will be near
Denver International Airport, probably opening in ’07.

Pikes Peak International Raceway (PPIR)
Indy Cars, NASCAR, SCCA, PCA, RMVR, and more.
It is a 1 mile oval with infield road course.

La Junta
One of the favorites. It’s at the municipal airport, owned by the
City of La Junta and they are very helpful. The clubs all
reciprocated when La Junta had a big flood just two weeks
after repaving the track that was way above the flood.

Mountain View
aka Continental Divide Racepark.
On I-25 north of Denver at the Mead Exit.


RMR-PCA worked an arrangement to use Woody Creek Raceways
in Aspen again. The event was very successful and will be an
annual happening. The track is now a private motorsports
country club.



Race Karts are very popular also.
Colorado Karter
This is a state-wide race karting e-publication.
The race series change periodically.
Dedicated kart tracks include:

Action Karting at Bandimere
West of Denver along C-470, Morrison Exit.

IMI North of Denver 2 mi. east of I-25 on county road.

CRE Motorsports east of Colorado Springs.

West of Grand Junction along I-70 Grand Junction Motor Speedway
Great track, shop and rentals.

The Track at Centennial is at the Centennial Airport in SE Denver
and is under construction.

Best,
Grady

Grady,

Some of those guys have come to our VARA events when we run at Vegas. I see Robert Aimes painted his car. No more white with Green graphics.

With all those 911's out there, wht don't they all come to Vegas in November with us and run in the PORSCHE / ALFA Challenge race.

We regularly get 15 911's out there 3-5 914-6 and come 356's as well.
It owuld be fun to get all of you out there for that event.

I am the CP class rep for VARA so come on out and play.

Jim, Brant, et al,

Adams County and Commerce City issued 20,000 housing permits for the area between the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (closed chemical weapons plant) and “the trash mountain” dump site to the east. As noted it is under the flight path to/from DIA.

The housing being built is defunct before it is sold the first time.

I wonder, what is the foreclosure rate?

I wonder, what you would find in a water well?

Who do you think the developers paid?

Best,
Grady
