Morning solo drive

Early morning drive with a cup of coffee and the sounds & smell of an air cooled machine. Pretty relaxing 😎

Morning drive through the hills and coffee with my wife. Also, a “GOT” tribute cup placed in the photo for fun.

Transmission upgrades

Delivered my car to Benton Performance in Anaheim Ca. today. John will be rebuilding and upgrading the original numbers matching 5 speed transmission to be re-installed to replace the 4 speed I’m currently running. Looking forward to the results.

Benton Performance in Anaheim Ca.

I attended an open house/BBQ at Benton which was a car show of customers and friends. My car is there having the transmission upgraded. A few photos from the event.

I picked up my 67 from Benton today and drove it from Anaheim Ca. to Bakersfield Ca. The new transmission is outstanding! I cannot say enough good things about J.B. and staff. If you are ever in Anaheim Ca. (Disneyland or some other reason) you should stop by and check out his operation. 5 stars. RC

Love the car. Finally in a position to purchase my first Porsche. Was originally looking at either a SC or non G50 3.2 because of budget. Recently I've become obsessed with the 912 (have always loved the longhood 911s). Cost wise is it possible to get a well sorted 912 for the price of a SC or non G50 3.2. I don't really care about #s matching and outward appearance is secondary to a mechanically sorted car.

I think you can get a very nice 912 for that kind of money. One that should not need much of anything except personalizing it to your liking. All Pcars pricing is based on condition and many other factors that can be all over the board on pricing but I would suggest going and driving an SC, 3.2 Carrera and a 912 that has been upgraded. This way you can actually make an educated decision for yourself and you will avoid purchasing the wrong car for you. BAT.com has many of all three versions for sale regularly but do your homework and avoid a mistake. Good luck and continue to use this site to learn from all the folks here. They are very experienced and provide great advice. RC

Car Night at two local Eateries. My buddy had his pristine 85 3.2 Carrera, marble grey and burgundy interior. Great food and friends.

Went out to Buttonwillow Race Track to watch some fast moving Porsche’s. Also visited with my buddy Jae Lee of Mirage International, San Diego.
