Hey Greg,

Heres to both you and Larry, what an incredible story. I'm in Montreal, and have always admired the east coast lifestyle, I must say you guys have one of the greatest stories/setups/collections I've ever heard of in Canada.

Absolutely love the work you did to bring this beauty back to such an incredible car. Should you ever need powdercoating/zinc etc I know a couple of great places here in Quebec. Can't wait to get my 912 back on the road this spring!

Question for you: the 72 oil tank that you used do you know how many litres it takes?

Thanks! Cheers! Keep posting!!!!

Oil tank

Funny, but I'm not sure. The car takes 8.5 litres on a change to bring the level to about half way on the stick. Keep in mind that the oil cooler is on the engine not up front. I have no idea if you are asking about the tank only. It looks a little smaller than the traditional tanks but it's a different shape so it's difficult to know for sure.

I was originally planning to build a 911R so I installed the 72' tank but latter decided to go with regular marker light etc. and so I installed the cover and latch. I think it's a neat setup but is all wrong for a 68' and it can be confusing to some who assume it must be a 72'. Oh well... it makes me happy!

The biggest surprise is how awesome the car is to drive. There's really nothing that feels old or cumbersome. It's just light, fast,flat in the corners and a real blast to cruise in. I put 5000kms on it last summer a I can't wait for Spring.

Greg

Those trees still have all their leaves. I take it you haven't had a frost yet.

Wow, I just read your whole thread, total inspiration. I too have a '68 that's a complete basket case and I'm making progress. Thanks for sharing.

Great job, beautiful car... Crappy Weather, but I guess it does keep you focused.

Looks like my little Mongrel has a cousin in Portland. It will be interesting to see how this auction goes. Man, what a beautiful build....the pics and the car are just incredible. Love the old school SWB hot rods.
