Bill, is that an abandoned PANAMERA prototype of the 70s?

All three barn-find explorers in the first picture are contributors here> two very well known...
Can anyone tell us who they are?

(If you are in the picture, you should recuse yourself )

Here is the most famous abandoned 911 on Pelican. A lister here found it and asked questions about it. A week later it was gone!!! A mystery that was never solved:

A sad find - Somebody left a 911 to rot

The 924carreraGT is a very good fast car, i tried to buy one a few years ago, without success because of rarity, the 210HP turbo engine runs strong, there were a few racing models, i'll try to post pics

That issue still bothers me - and I had nothing to do with it!

I Found this 67S number matching car in St. Louis. It will be restored at some juncture...it's actually a pretty rust free car.

Can someone point me to the thread about that black 930 between the truck and the garage? I can't find the original thread.

Thanks.

This porsche has been sitting on this 3 car carrier for at least five years(that's when the truck's tags expired). I've contemplated buying it, but it needs some serious work and the owner is not very eager. Go figure. It's a similar deal as that abandoned 930 but much less desirable. No engine/trans, trashed interior. It's not rusty, but the front pan is all beat and would need replacing, and there are signs of lots of Bondo.

356 graveyard

Hey, that 356 REGISTRY photo of the 356 graveyard looks just like my friends place outside Gainesville, Florida. Anyone know where the picture was taken at? (I guess I can look online). I've got a ton of pics from his place from the late 80s He had lots of 356s and 912as then bought a bunch in Miami and broght them up to Gainesville. He had 4 speedsters and 51 slit window bug, I tried forever to buy off him. He also had a 69 Boss and a bunch of other rare stuff.

Yep, that's in Gainesville, there's a long article on the whole "deal" that went down in the latest 356 Registry. I don't know if they post the article online or not. PM me with your address, and I'll send you a copy of it if you can't find it.

regards,
Eric
