I applaud your enthusiasm and ingenuity. Screw the naysayers. It's your car to enjoy - as the good doctor intended.

Two captured this week.

Either a restored or one that's been very well looked after - couldn't get my phone out quick enough to get a good shot of this Carrera (late '70's early 80's? )



and one up at Alice's today at lunchtime (do love me those GTS's)

I believe that body style was used 1978-1989, first with 911SCs and then 911 Carreras. Some very small external changes were made like front fog lights and valance and interior changes over the course of the series. Looks like it has a third tail light, which began in 1986. This car has European bumperettes, noticeably smaller, not US ones, and of course a duck tail used originally on earlier cars. So the car has obviously had some modifications. Nice car.

thanks. It did look a little frankencar and not particularly American as you point out. My photo doesn't do justice to how handsome it was.

Looks to me to be a clone of a '74 Carrera Euro car. My guess is it's a mid to late '80s car judging by the rear flares (from what I can see of the lip in the pic) or it has had late flares or 1/4s added.

I had forgotten about those PIA add on stop lights.

The original ipad is nearly 4 years old and still runs all the current apps, plays music, etc etc etc. I've had car CD players fail in less time than that......and who buys CDs anymore
