Before and after.

1973 911E. I got no history, but pieced together that it was brought from the Boston area in about 1992, got entangled in CA registration problems (smog?) and was stored for 6 years in a garage in Huntington Beach until a kid bought it to put the engine in a dune buggy. He lost enthusiasm for the project and I picked it up...

Hey Techweenie - you sure don't run into many sub-genius in Porsche forums. 911 in particular aren't particularly slack. A 924 maybe...

We're driving from Vancouver to Oakland to see Devo in on October 8th. Is that your bag too?

About the adandoned cars: I posted this a while back...I have been trying to make contact with the owner, but so far no luck.

nice SWB 911S wasting away - pics

Once I restore the slack out of the 911s, I have to sell 'em... :-(

I am, in fact, a Devoid. Ran into Jerry Casale maybe 8-9 years back. I said: "are you not men?" "Not anymore," he replied. But later they reconstituted, and I saw them in Pasadena. Mark Mothersbaugh gets lots of work still. Look him up on http://www.imdb.com

It started life as one of the original 31 1976 934's and after two and a half years in Europe it came to the states and central america to race..in 1979 the car started making a tranformation to a 935 and in 1982 Chuck Gaa of GAACO the builder of JLP 3 converted the car fully.....that 944 turbo was one of a few cars built and is unbelievably fast...very nasty!
