Those of you in the LA area might be interested in this.
Unbelievable price...but also amazing the Spyder survived 56 yrs of rust (without zinc). My 1950 356 was a rust bucket.
Those prices are quite astounding. I'm surprised, by comparison, 962s appear to be a bargain. I'd like to know more about the car's histories. For instance, I know of a 968 Turbo RS that sold for around $35K right after I bought mine, and a guy who built an RS clone that was dismayed that he'd never get what he spent back out of it. (The two cars listed in the article mentioned $300+K and $70K respectively, IIRC.) $300K+ for the LeMans 924/944 is pretty unbelievable.
Hint: that is the fuel tank wrapping around the driver's shoulders on the right.
1962 Porsche 804 F1
That was fast...
I took these at the oldtimer F1 at the Nurburgring a few years ago...
Nice arm rests. Looks comfy.
I don't think those brake discs made for quick tire changes..
Inboard disk brakes ^^^
Random Porsche shot of the day. Funny how the 951s always seem to come in red!
First time, ever, for me in 12 years of ownership:
Passed emissions/safety inspection yesterday with flying colors, running superb. Just quit. Just like someone flipped the kill switch on a MC.
Luckily, I was about 5 blocks away from a pretty good indie/foreign place (not my usual guy, which makes me nervous.)
Outside of the complete respray including all new rubber, a rotary AC compressor and H4 headlight upgrade, the only money I've put in this baby is a new pair of rear tires in 2002 and a set of brakes pads/front discs in 2005. Might be time for a fuel pump.

Love the wheel upgrade!
I had a black one the same year....quite on me 3 different times over probably 3 yrs...an hour later it cranked and ran fine....frustrating...Ended up being a short in the burglar alarm wiring. Common problem with factory alarm system. Good luck...
iirc, inboard brakes would be mounted away from the wheels near the differential. Those are aircraft style (UFO) brakes.
Audi tried a similar deal in the late 80s, early 90s. Didn't work as well as they wanted.
You are right , they are UFO brakes , I should have known that since I owned two cars with them . Inboard brakes are like what older Jags have . I hate getting old and forgetting or mixing up the correct terminology .
More pics. please. Love the color.
Love the heat trail. Mine does that when I warm it up. I can see it on the ground around the tail.
Turns out it was the wire from the fuse to the FI relay badly corroded and about to break. To the point it was only passing 2.6V through to the CIS.
They're all though this thread.
Here's one on my first trip out after the total re-spray.
So, fifty years ago this summer, my parents loaded my three brothers and I into our '60 Westfalia Kombi and headed North, to the Seattle World's Fair. Then, we drove down the coast, hitting all the typical tourist sports, all the way to TJ.
I needed one accessory to turn the SC into a proper camping vehicle to repeat/commemorate the trip this summer.
Ordered it today! . (just the roof rack, not the deck lid)
A little something from this mornings cars and coffee set
