Wow! Small world. I don't know what happened to it after I saw it. I was looking for something less modified at the time- but it was a killer car. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I used to drool over his car every time I saw it at an event, nice guy as well.

No idea who bought it when it was for sale, I think when he still owned it he was trying to get $45K for it?

Chopped roll bar and raked windshield? Or is it just the camera lens? Proportions look odd. Nice car, but I’m not a fan of the windshield/Roll bar mods.

The engine I got is an original (640) case, and it's all apart in boxes. I've never measured the p/c's

This car set a high standard for builds. One which has not been bested by very many. I remember seeing it and thinking, you just can't get much better.

While researching mufflers for my 914 I found this picture of Ernie and his car on a website that makes custom mufflers and exhausts.

That car was also an inspiration for my car. Loved that car. Why did he get rid of it?
