    Um, maybe different in Ohio but if the dealer possesses the car and lets you drive it, hownis it on you if crash happens?

    Here a 914/911 conversion that a friend of a relative has for sale here in Phoenix. My relative is his insurance agent and while I trust him, again, I don’t know the seller. I’ll post a few pictures and the owner’s build comments. I can forward the original emails if you’re interested. PM your email to me.

    oh, the current price is $25k but I was told that he’d likely take less if someone showed up with a handful of cash and a decent offer.

    Much fun was had by all today. About 175 miles seat time. Getting ready to start stripping for this winter’s mods. (I’m not waiting until it’s 10° in December like I did last year.)

    That gives me an idea: I've been thinking of something to go under the engine cover grills on my beck. For two reasons, keep water out of there at the car wash and a better mounting point for the grills (when whoever trimmed the mold around the grill openings, they cut the flange too small and the screws that hold the grills on didn't have enough material and 3 of 6 tore out)

    A lexan sheet with a 3" standoff would be perfect. Won't inhibit the ventilation (too much) and will keep water off the hot engine. I was thinking of a louvered sheet of aluminum, but lexan will be much easier to work with.

    That is sad news, thanks for the report Ace. I met him a couple times at Porsche Parades, he was no nonsense but a good guy. A lot of people didn't realize it but he was a hell of a driver, I watched he and Brian Redman go at it at Mid Ohio once. He was in his 917 and Brian in the Chevron B19 (basically a 2 liter Can Am car), they swapped the lead 7 or 8 times. I've never seen anyone push a 917 that hard in a historic race, it was definitely impressive.

    After I got my 910 painted in the early/mid 80's I put red PORSCHE decals on each B pillar the guys down at the old Brumos race shop had given me (they'd been sitting on a parts shelf a long time). Not long after that I was at a Parade with it in the historic display, he came over and said 'where'd you get those decals?' I told him and he goes, those are 917 decals and it's the only car they came on : )
