Next project

And you guy's wonder why my EGO is sooo big.

Guess what car this dash is connected too.

I landed a ground up restoration/hot rod job on a factory Porsche race car..which one is it ??

The suspension is first.. so we can roll it around. Its a tub right now.

Those of you who already know (KEEP quiet)lol

You know, I always wondered why no one made a single, center seat 914. Seems like it wouldn't be too hard......

Been there done that. Ron mistak has one also (center seat 914)

This "race car" is right hand drive, but will be converted to left hand drive.

Hey Slowlane....

There are some single center seat 914's out there. There is a beautiful maroon one that I used to run against every year at the topeka pca clubrace.... I copied his front hood actually... nice car....

Umm no. I think this race car was orginally built about 30 years after that one.

Close though, thanks for playing.

Looks like a monocoque so it must be a 962? I think the 956 was tube frame but I am just guessing from the very light pleasure reading I have done about these cars.

Looks kinda like a 935, but only the one with the raised floor. But I don't think that's it somehow.

I'm guessing one of the "flounder" cars, maybe a 956 or more likely a 962.

James..

You nailed it.

We will start on a 962 that was raced by a Japanese team back in the late 80's.

What EGO ??

What other "dedicated" 914 guy do you know that will have restored and raced a 962 (by age 31) ?? The owner has signed me and my fab guy up for a Enduro next year (June) to race the car.

I cant beleive how cool I am.. LOL

That was too much.. lol but it feels good.

I've decided that you can give me that M471 car as my prize. Wayne has too many cars to fix right now anyway.

Well, I don't do beer and I don't do Hooters, but if you grace me with your presence anywhere it will probably be enough of a thrill (from what you say).

It sounds like I was actually a lot like you - I had my own shop doing restorations and street rods - I decided to go back to school and finish my engineering degree. I can say that you will never work on cars that have the power and speed of what I work on now (Mach 2 in a 962, uh, NO).

Cars have become just a hobby for me, the advantage is that I actually have time to work on my own cars!

See ya soon!

Hmmmmmm- h00ters in Arlington?

Gonna be in that area prolly around the 21st of Sept. My son moved to Tejas to seek his fame and fortune - one of his accounts is h00ters. I'll be drivin' a 55,000 GVW truck we bought in NY back to CA and thought I would stop for a day or so.

Maybe Billy Bobs in FW would be more fun. Nuthin' like a barn filled with b00bs (buckle shiners) and b00ze.

When drivin' thru Tejas, it is a requirement to wear ****-kickers, Wranglers, 4X Stetson and have a sixer of Lone Star on the driver's seat with a 45 under the seat? Am I allowed to "dip" my cigar?

Note: The preceeding text is confidential and should only be viewed by the designee. If you received this post in error, please disregard and notify the DPS of the occurance of a "fake texan" driving a large vehicle on I-10. The driver is considered to be a hostile left coaster. Approach with caution as he may/may not go into "rant" mode upon questioning. Brass knukles and handcuffs are recommended.

Ron, I drove thru Tejas a few times. You can do anything you want there and they will be very hospitable. Just make sure you answer all questions with, "Yes/No Sir." And don't ever say, "......, boy." Ain't no *boys* in Tejas.
