Just noticed when I made a reply on another post,
I had a date with destiny 11 years ago today.....

I don't post here a lot, but do a fair amount of reading. Thanks folks for being a great source for information on these fantastic but quirky little Porsches.


My car , a '74 - 2.0 litre was found by me after many exhaustive searches for a nice, rust free and accident free chassis. Traveling to the southwest and west to source good candidates, this 60,000 mile original virtually found me.

Sunflower Yellow. Absolutely ZERO rust. A dry, summer driven only, Montana car most of it's life, it made it's way first to Bismarck, ND then Fargo, ND where it required mechanical help at the local Porsche dealership on a drive to Minneapolis, MN. It was torn apart mechanically to diagnose and repair, but never paid for by the second owner. He was later tragically killed in a motorcycle accident.

The car was purchased by me for the 'amount due on the bill' and the title was surrendered by that owner and passed on to me. The interior is near perfect with very little to no wear shown on the door sills, pedals, and light wear on the steering wheel. Seats show as new. Dash shows as new. All tools, jack, spare, and paperwork from new was in the glove box.

I paid a total of $750.00 dollars in the fall of 1994 before embarking on making it mechanically sound. The car rides on 3 sets of wheels. The original steel mags which I had media blasted and repainted due to light rust deep in the seam between hub and rim. It has it's date coded correct, set of 5 FUCHS - 4 bolt alloys which are in perfect condition. And a new set of Campagnolo cast Magnesium alloys are ready to fit for variation, giving up a 'new and different look' from show to show.
