How about a Renegade Hybrid?
In the mid seventies I traded a buddy a slightly tired 911 for this ('74 2.0L), it had stiffer suspension and P7's (1st low profile tire) and handled pretty good.
Only driven one 914-4 and it was like a gocart on steroids. But my little Cayman S is more like quadruple Steroids when it comes to corning.
German doctor building safari 911s .
Gawd are these beautiful!
One of the most renowned Porsches of all ~ the 911 Turbo RS that belonged to maestro Herbert von Karajan—is back. he sports car had disappeared from view for years. But then it appeared in front of Karajan’s favorite concert hall in Salzburg ~ as otherworldly as ever....
I was searching the inter webs hoping to find a picture of a bare Beck Spyder frame and I came across this:
As near as I can tell, 1958, at Pier 76 in Manhattan. The same place my family returned from Europe 2 years later on the SS America, with the 23 Window Westfalia in the hold. The United States Lines building is now the Manhattan Impound lot.
And sat on our luggage in this area and worked on a model of a B17 I'd been building since we left Europe while we waited for the bus to be unloaded and clear customs.
Here's an aerial shot of Pier 76 with the America and her newer, larger sister ship the SS United Staes docked on the other side.
Circa 1960. Which I when we came back. For all I know, I could have been sitting in that building waiting for our bus to be unloaded when take picture was taken, which blows my fucking mind.
And, sadly, here's the old girl in 2000, languishing off the coast of Mauritania before she broke up.
One last pic I poached from Pinterest.
I am officially old...took the senior vehicle to get the senior park pass today...
Lobster claws are my favorite wheels from those years, great color too!
Thanks...I've enjoyed the hell out of it...
That's the best! I bought one last time I went through Zion, I was expecting to have to wait until 65 and fork out $60, which I'd done for years. The Senior Pass was actually $5 LESS than regular admission to Zion. And it's good for life!
10 bucks right now, goes up to 80 later this month. I Juuuuuuuuussssst made it!!
Jeebus - the AARP thread is four down and to the left.
Glad for the reminder, I got one a few years ago but misplaced it, might be still in the system. Girlfriend needs one anyway, I'll check.
I think August 28 is the deadline before the price increase so hurry fast. If you get yours online they add $10 for processing but that is still cheap compared to what it will be. My wife just bought hers.
I crossed the Atlantic from NYC to Southampton on the glorious SS America in 1954. I was 7 years old at the time, but have some vivid memories of that trip. It's sad to see what happened to that ship.
Beck Spyder #201. Back on the road again!
Crazy. I was 7 when we went in 1960. We did a "Planes Trains, Automobiles and Boat" over.
Drove our '56 Chevy from Provo to my grandparent's in Las Vegas, left the car there and flew to Montreal via Chicago Midway in some sort of 4 engines prop airliner, Holland America line (SSRotterdam) to Le Harve, train to Westfalia factory to pick our 23 Window sunroof Westie.
Yeah, we took a DC7 four prop from LA to NY and boarded in Aug of 1954. 7 days to cross the Atlantic. My brother, Mom and me. We were military brats bound for 3 years in England where my dad was already stationed. There is some interesting info on the net about the history of the America.
Very cool Spyder, BTW
I have a very good friend who is a 356 aficionado and is always looking for 356 engines if you know of any, anywhere.
