[WTB] 1973(.5) 911T Targa

I am looking to buy an unmolested, honest 1973 Porsche 911T Targa. A perfect car for me would be:
- Drivable, roadworthy condition (no barn find or basket case)
- Little/no rust
- Unmolested (no steel flares, slant nose conversion, V8 transplant, etc). That said, any reversible mods or incorrect parts are totally fine – and to be expected for a 40+ year old car.
- No Concourse material. Would I like to show off my car at next years’ concours d’elegance? Sure, but I won’t raid my kids’ college funds for this.

Why 1973? That’s the year I was born, and this is how I ‘sold’ the idea to my wife to adopt a longhood Porsche… I’d consider both CIS and MFI.

A little bit about myself: I used to own the car in the image, a wonderful 1973.5T Targa in original condition - the one in the picture. Not a show queen by any means, but a very presentable driver in stunning gemini blue metallic. Owned it for a few years and then got so busy with work and two little girls at home that I decided to sell it. Oh boy am I regretting this now.

So, here I am, attempting to make up for my mistake and getting back behind the wheel of a Longhood.

SO close... I checked out a solid 73T Coupe and didn't make an offer on the spot. Sure enough, car sold within 48 hours.
Felt good to be back behind the wheel of a longhood. Really love the smell of these cars.

TL;DR... still looking for a solid driver 73 911.
