OUT NOW - PORSCHE HOME - GARAGE DREAMS
You know, I wanted a project car I could mess around with without messing around with the Porsche heritage. I would never dare to take a car that is significant in one way or the other and build a custom car out of it. Don’t know, I probably call it education and appreciation. So I was specifically looking for a car that has been neglected and underappreciated.
Other specs I was looking for: it had to be a 1977 model year Porsche. Weird, isn’t it? But truthfully, it’s not that weird. I’ve had so many Porsches over the years, one of the reasons was to find out, what I really want. 1977 has everything for me: it’s already zync-coated, much stiffer than the early – pre 74 911s and it still has the pop-out windows, even though I know you can still retrofit the later ones (1978-1989). And it had to be a non-sunroof car just because I had some streetable racecar thing in my head. So here I was, looking for such a beat-up patinated messed up with but still in a good shape Porsche 911.
