But I love them...... the howling in fourth gear..... skiing down a twisty road..... blasting up a mountain pass on the bumpers of my mates....... the hours and hours of planning how to make it more reflective of my vision..... the perfect perfect car....... flaws and all...... an experience......everytime......





California cruising........

I experimented with this a bit ago. I found that a tasteful exterior (in a good color) some updated wheels (with a factory theme) impeccable leather, good exhaust note out of a desirable engine (3.2 in this case) and the proper rake all made for quick sales.



Was it $70k? No. But it could sell within hours of listing.

Without a doubt to me the longhood and/or backdate rule the market for top dollar, but the tasteful 3.2 Carrera may be easier to sell.

"retired" suggests that I had done all I set out to do when the truth is I was priced out of the arms race in the spec911 class. the building, developing, and racing my own 911 was an experience I would not ever trade. much more fun per dollar with a street hotrod that will be occasionally tracked for me these days.

I'm wavering. It's a good thing I have at least a year to decide for sure.
My biggest reason for not liking the middie style was I could not find a front bumper/valance in fiberglass I liked.
Dual fender oil coolers will be plenty. I don't need the center mount cooler and I don't really like the look of it.
I like the 911R front with the rectangle openings on the sides. I briefly thought about an IROC bumper and cutting out the center cooler and glassing it closed.

Well I spotted this in another thread. I like it a lot.

It's a variation on the SC-RS look.

derrick, if i don't stay with the stock bumpers on my '74, that's the front bumper i'm going to use. it's the only one i like for the IB cars. i think it's cleaner than the original sc/rs bumper...

I like it but I don’t want to give up factory fogs.

If I decide to order from EB I'll let you know. I'll have a big crate of fiberglass coming this way. It will save you money on shipping.
I keep reading bad reviews on the fiberglass suppliers in the USA. It may be worth the extra money in shipping to get EB's parts.
