$73,250.00 and a bid war between three buyers. I guess this is what people want in a race car. Classic race car look with metal panels and high hp original engine.

2.0l class cars still get raced. It’s easier to find a home for a car like this that can still run with a group of similar cars. It’s the other oddball displacements that are kind of homeless.

The big reason I said longnose to start with is because I didn’t want to talk about E class and Spec911 3.0 and 3.2l cars. They are their own market to themselves.

Understood.
This car was definitely different from the others that sat for months or years before selling. It seems to be about less is more. I too am turned off by the hacked body with Dzus fittings holding fiberglass fenders on. I would never plunk down $70k for a car like that. I would for this car if I were a buyer.

Interesting about the larger group for the 2.0 class. I have no knowledge about the club racing groups. I just like the cars and day dream about having the time to actually race one. In 10 years when the kids are off to school I may be one of those grey hair old guys trying to learn how to drive fast... Maybe 3.2 will be the big class then? I should grab that Gulf colored 78 and stick it in storage until then

If you actually want to race, E is the place to be these days in an air cooled car. PCA is fielding large groups.


Most every racecar in this picture is E class, 3.0 or 3.2l cars. Most of Accumoto's builds are 3.2 G50 cars.

West Coast, the PRC runs spec911. Jerry Woods, Jeff Gamroth, and a few others put the class together. There's some metric dollar builds well into six figures, and then there are privateers like juanbenae, who built their own car out of a street car. It's a great mix of guys that run about 8 races a year, mostly at Sears, T-Hill and Laguna.

I didn't care about long hood race cars until I saw this one in some slides I have posted elsewhere on the forum. It speaks to me and makes me think irrationally:

Where are you at price wise to recreate something like this if you have already have an adequate engine?

PCA has also started a vintage class. Very simple rules. '83 or older, air-cooled only. Split into 2 groups: over and under 2.7L (if I recall correctly). Perfect for my mongrel beast which otherwise classes in GT-4. No such thing as a cheap racecar. They will always need something or another thing...only time they don't cost money is if you don't run them. I don't think there are many cars that are more fun to drive than a 911 though:

Hard to go back to something older(longnose) when there's cars like this around for so much less money.
FS: 1978 911 SC Track

I would want to know who built the engine, since it wasn't Aase, but I doubt that's a deal breaker.

2,600lbs and 180hp. Seems boorrrriiinnnggg. She needs to loose 500lbs or gain 200hp to be a good time.

Auction is not over so still time for a run up.
but as it looks, no title, pretty stripped race car that would be hard to make anything but a race car out of. Engine has to much compression for street use and probably cams and porting that match.
Stripped interior and welded in cage, fiberglass roof etc. Hard track miles on tub.
I have looked at a 356 like this in the hope of making an outlaw and decided it was to far gone for me to bring back to street use. I think this is the same.
So the limited market of track car buyers for it.

I don't no. If I didn't have two projects already I'd throw something at it.
The engine and transmission specs combined with the dyno report are impressive enough for me to look past the aesthetics at $20k.

It's a race car, it's not going back. But a Zotz built 3.0l like that is a $40k engine to put together. It appears no time on a rebuild (slick wording), meaning many of those fancy parts already have time on them, but still. He could pull the engine and sell it for $25k and it can't even get that as a whole car? Sure, there's an hour left, but I don't see it going anywhere.

I have long held the belief that many cars should be parted out to be sold for the most $ and race cars especially.
I do not see it going any where either, but until it is over...
