I lived in OB two or three years during my college days on Brighton, Muir, & West Point Loma Blvd. Loved those days of partying and girls with mini's, no bras, & sometimes no underwear. Had a real feeling of community in those days. If you do sell your car on that site, let us know how the process went.

Small world. Yea, I lived on Cape May during my college years. Then moved up the hill and stayed in 92107 for over 30 years. OB is still a unique community. That brings back a lot of memories.

I was 17. We lived in a rent house on Tarento Dr. behind then Cal Western College. In 1966 three suits drove from L.A. representing the estate of the owners and were practically begging dad to buy the house for $37,000. He was in the NAVY, we never settled anywhere. Today the house is on Zillow at $1.4MM.

Driver's door and seat

...remember the buggered up top rail of the driver's door?



Fixed it. I have a new door lock guide and a new plug for the back hole.



Ron at Auto Weave gave me the scrap to try it myself. After looking at the compound angles, I deferred to the expert and he did it for $25. Bonus.

He's the guy who fixed my driver's seat back to OEM specs.

Before Ron


After Ron, new matching material, straight from Germany.

Heater exchangers and muffler

Back from Pristine bead blasted and ceramic coated. Original chrome tip.







These parts look like they have 385,000 miles on them.

Gene might have had this thing off-road as a regular occurrence. We'll never know.

I think I did not mention he died three days after his 101st birthday in April. He is on the wait list to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, usually six to eight months. He was one of a few US NAVY officers, USNA Class of '41, the only class to graduate early, to spend the entire war on board warships in the South Pacific. He was involved in every major sea battle. He and dad both retired as Rear-Admiral Line Officers.

He wrote a book about it, https://www.amazon.com/Anecdotes-Sea-Stories-American-Midshipman

Additionally, Gene graduated from a one-room schoolhouse in West Texas, K-12, in 1938, fluent in Castillian Spanish and straight into the Naval Academy, hence his post war assigmnment as US Naval Attache to the Spainsh government.

I would be remiss not to remind you how he drove "The Red Machine" as he called it. He was 89 at the time of this video. "Never let the RPM's get below 3,000.", his only instruction when he threw the key to me.

Exhaust parts look good with the ceramic coating.

What a great story behind your sweet 911e!

Your welcome, I know what you mean about thinking about the next owner I do that myself and I intend to keep mine for a while yet.
Im sorry to hear you will be passing it on soon, you clearly have a lot of affection for the car and its history.

It looks great Im sure it will be appreciated.

All the best.

Like just now, I need to replace the front axle dust caps. The host has them.

I could have bought cheap Chinese knock-offs in stock for $40 but I bought the special order Porsche brand for $78; getting the Porsche parts receipt, and, for concourse of course.

Finished the driver's door top piece with the OEM plug in the retaining screw access hole.



Porsche "ping" alive and well in both doors.

"I'm a little busy right now."
On a side note Im a contractor currently working on the Prince of Wales Aircraft Carrier at the moment.
Before that I worked on the Queen Elizabeth Carrier, when we went on sea trials the George W Bush carrier came alongside in Scottish waters, great site to see.
I'll see if I can pull out a snap of it.

Dust caps

Porsche porn, Pelican part 914-341-684-00-OEM. These are Porsche. There are Chinese knock offs but only $11 less.



I could not put the old ones back on with those new parts all around.

Replaced seat belts

...with OEM 1970 straps. I bought them for the red knobs and the OEM style. What do you think the oddds of finding a 1969 set are? I'm guessing astronomical. They were missing a few plastic parts whch I had on the original set, so now they are complete and in perfect shape. Both have the original label, the webbing looks new, and none of the bits and pieces are broken.

I know the aircraft style belts were not concourse, but are the OEM 1970 belts also not qualified, being a year off? Just curious.

Storz let me do the work while the car is in waiting for the engine. I have to pull the seats, disconnect the back and loosen the tracks to be able to do it properly.




Check out this factory color.

Am I being silly to include these clothes and coins with the sale? I will not have any use for them.

Yes, selling the car, as soon as the engine is done, which should be be by the end of summer.

Don't feel bad for me, I still have this, with a C-4 automatic behind the 260 V-8 it was born with and the Holman-Moody suspension mods of a Monte Carlo Rallye Falcon.



Modeled after these

Ken, best of luck on selling the car when the time comes. Also sad to know about your condition but it's encouraging to know you're still keeping in the game. Keep it up.

Thanks. I'm not in the expertise curve nor income bracket for changing out Porsche transmissions. Someone will be getting a damn nice old Porsche with a bunch of swag and a library of Porsche shop manuals and books. Luckily, I do not get emotionally attached to my cars.
