It is a one of these days project. Everything on it is still original except newer seals all around and no rust : ) oh, and no smog junk either. Since i live in GA where I even run the AC in what fews days of winter we have, I haven't been quick to begin work on the 912 (no ac...but it does have marvelous vent windows ) What I do not have right now is time. It is either work on the car, or ride motorcycles.

What I would like to do is keep it as stock as possible, with the exception of putting Webers in place of the solex carbs that are on it now. It really was a fun car to drive. No speed demon, but it handles well and brings a nice big smile to my face.

btw, a friend is searching for a 930 in good shape to be driven and not stored. He had a pristine '86 that he was reluctant to drive so as not to muck it up to the point where he ended up selling it. He is now looking for one in less pristine shape so he won't feel bad driving it. Either late 70's or from '85 on, no gray market stuff. Thanks if anyone has any suggestions on this.

OH yeah, also, if anyone has a good parts source for the 912 I would be obliged. Cheers, yaz

Just a great looking car. Before wind-tunnel and too much gov't saftey (some but really well done incorporating into the body)

Why? I've heard the solex carbs are better for everyday driving and you can get them rebuilt for a lot less than buying a new pair of webers. Plus your stock air filters will still work.

I guy named Klaus rebuilt mine. Drilled all the plugs out and cleaned all the passageways. Re-shimmed the throttle shaft and flow tested it. IIRC, $800 for the pair. IMO, better than new when I got them back.

If you're interested, I have a box of powder-coated tin. When I bought mine back in '90, it had a blown motor. I bought a motor from a friend and I ended up with doubles for a lot of stuff. The most significant parts are a set of oil-bath air filters. I could have my son take some pics.

That would be great. I really need to get off my ass and start on it. Way to much dust covering it right now.

Where do you live? Perhaps Klaus is nearby?

btw - like the quotes in your sig line!

I live in Las Vegas, but the guy who rebuilt the carbs was in the Bay Area. The parts I spoke of are in a storage unit in SLC.
