New to BBS with pics, Rhode island

I noticed everyone says hi, I have been porsche fanatic for years, Here is the garage, and current projects, Sorry pics are distant but you get the idea. Yes the garage is at my house, and no its not what i do for a living, I just got really lucky, the guy that had the house before me spent to much time out there and had to get divorced , so his loss, my gain. I decided if theres a problem with my marriage , i'm gonna live out here before I sell.
The red car is
87 3.2 G50 Black A/c power everything, even with a chip, and filter still a little sluggish, Hope fully custom exhaust this winter will help. Always wanted a lates 80's 911, Guess it was the era I grew up in.

Yellow car, 69 tub, 32mm hollow bars in rear, adjustable plates, fronts are 25mm, Front and rear sway ?mm. 17 inch forgelines, 255/315. 996 four piston calipers front and rear. full cage w/boltin side bars. Courbeau forza seats, All fiberglass RSR wide body, 05 Speed yellow,
Trans 915
Engine

I'm sure I am forgeting something, anyway its being built for the street, mainly I just sit in it and pretend I'm Mark Donahue. And curse Bruce Anderson for writing his perfomance book,.
If there is anyone in my area that can help me be more than a closet porschefile let me know, would like to get involved in a few DE events. Hope you like the cars.

Got lucky with the garage, just the average guy, right car at the right time, daily driver is 2004 Explorer and we have a 2000 jetta, Spend all the money(time) on the kids, and my children HEHEHe, here she is playing in the snow, can't wait to get one this year before it melts off the trees, Maybe a side by side, I have heard that is mandatory. Many cars have suffered practice work befor these two beaties, thank god for VW Beetles, after that rust on an early 911 is cake, thanks for the welcome and comments.
I got REALLY lucky with the Plate, my favorite question, hey what year is that. By the time they catch up at the next light they should have it figured. Any suggestions for the rsr plate?

Oh did he mention he fabs his own parts? killer garage with lift?
Hmm, I wonder whats under that blanket?

I'll vouch for him. He's a great guy and the yellow monster is one bad ass ride.When I go over there I can stare at it for hours.
Actually I beleave I have..... The detail he's put into this car is amasing.

Thanks for the wonderful responses, yes I wet myself sometimes, and to the rsr owner in NJ, WOW WOW WOW, thats a very nice car, I have cheated in a few area like closing some of the openings for the street, but your car is definately the real deal. I believe any of us would be lucky to have that baby. I believe 72-77 were the epitome of styling for the 911, comfort be damned speed and styling rule the world. I will get moire pictures and run another thread when the car is together. Hopefully Ron G will be in that picture with his Sweet SC.
