Yikes! My Outstanding '78 Targa For Sale! Now w. Pics

Get off your duffers, folks. Dump that tired 911 that needs lots of work for a truly pristine car. It is not cheap because it is an outstanding car both in condition and driving.

Some details:

'78 SC Targa, factory silver metallic, $6500 respray 4 or so years ago--perfect flat, deep finish, no orangepeel. Very few slight scratches, no dings, nose excellent with Chip Guard in great shape, no rock chips to speak of. Front Turbo spoiler. Rubbertrim excellent everywhere (appears to be new when painted), chrome trim and Targa bar, Targa top in like-new shape, all glass appears new, no dings or cracks. Never wrecked.

Appr. 75K miles on complete rebuild by very reputable Porsche specialists w. Mahle 3.2 kit, twin-plugged heads, Electromotive crank-fired ignition, SSI heat exchangers, factory stainless steel sport exhaust. Full receipts for rebuild. Appr. 230-240 HP w. massive torque. Quicker everywhere than any stock Carrera 3.2. Pulls like a rabid dog. Carrera chain tensioners, air box mod, etc. 20K miles on new starter motor.

Appr. 25K miles on rebuilt tranny w. new 1st and 2nd, etc. etc. by local Ferrari dealer.

Black interior presents in outstanding, nearly new condition, excellent seats, dash surfaces, door panels, gauges, etc.--no cracks/fading anywhere. Carpeting black w. some wear by left foot dead pedal area, other wise outstanding. 930S wheel, fully working A/C.

16" 6" & 7" Fuchs in great shape. 800 miles on new Bilstein HD struts and dampers all around, new Bridgestone Potenza S-03's, new front swaybar bushings, new alignment. 25.25 front, 24.75 rear height. H4 headlight upgrade, lenses in excellent shape.

Brakes in excellent conditon, new stainless lines all around.

Very rigid structure, recently installed Stable Energies Camber Truss with outstanding results.

Alpine AM/FM Cassette w. detachable face, 6-disc changer. No holes cut anywhere for speakers.

This car is truly special to drive--it feels nothing like a '78, and is ultra tight and responsive. Nothing old-feeling anywhere. Simply does not feel like a 24 year old 911. I have many, many receipts, including for all the major mechanical work and for routine maintenance, plus original purchase receipt.

Odometer shows 94K miles, 90K mile tune up done. I suspect the overall chassis has appr. 120K miles on it, as the tach was replaced due to a defect at around 25-30K miles.

Comes with CoverKing StormGuard cover.

I am asking $19K. If seen and driven, it seems eminently reasonable!

how can you even think about buying a house when there are so many homeless in the world. you should really think about donating all the proceeds to charity.

Does fiscal responsibility=marriage? If you're single, don't act irrationally! Take your medication, relax, and look @ the car.

Yeah, yeah, I know--but looking at my own house will be even better, and I shall return to the fold soon thereafter with some sort of barking mad 930.....preferably a Targa.....

Besides, I'll prolly get a nice little '96 Ducati 900 SS to play with and gawk at in the mean time. Get my black leather back out!

You know, you can sleep in your car... But you can't drive your house.

I have a friend who works in a restaurant. Recently a rather tattered couple sat down for dinner. The woman was wearing a t-shirt with the following script: "Home is where you park it."

Ha!

Don't make the worst mistake of your life. If you buy a house for 100k at a 6.5% rate now you will pay more than if you buy that house for 85k at 8.5% in three years and refinance three years later. The stock market has never lost 3 years straight which only means rates are on their way up and market value on the way down. I am only 25 but I know countless people who have regretted selling their dream car for a house or wedding or kid or whatever. But that's just my opinion

Here's a possible solution to keep your car: get a short term fixed loan - say 3 or 5 yr fixed. The rates are less than a 30 yr fixed and may give you enough of a break on your anticipated monthly mortage payment to be able to afford to keep the car. Here's another option: I was a little 'tight' myself on a new purchase in June and used an 'option' loan - it allows you to choose from four different payment amounts each month - it'll save you a ton each month compared to a typical 30 yr fixed - aside from being a mortgage broker, I own an '83 and I only wish my car was as stellar as your car is - and there ain't no way I'm sellin less its for a 930! call me if I can help! www.aaaLoanSource.com (by the way, my 30 yr fixed rate today is 5.5%) GOOD LUCK!
