    LeeM got a reaction from SteveF in 912   
    First time out of the shed in 18 months! 
     

     
    And off it goes for body prep and paint!
    We did some dent removal and welded up the sill trim holes for a nice smooth look, so it's just replacing the pan and not much more!
    My mate's bodywork mentor went over the car and he was pretty impressed with it's condition which was nice to hear.
     We've agreed on a time limit of the end of October, so I can try to attend the Victorian Day of VW show, or the local Volksfest here in Adelaide, so we'll see how it goes. Here's hoping it all goes well!

    Comon - Is modifying "A" Classic Porsche sacrilegious ? It doesn't have to be a 911 !!!
     
    And IMO it is better to see them on the road modified and being enjoyed, than to have it original stored away and only looked at.

    Basically doing the same "gig" as my 22yo. He's in a 4 piece cover but they have a "lite" duo for smaller gigs. And yes , the footy club ones pay quite well but are fraught with potential for damage. Which is why I won't lend out my strat!
    I think Seger's first album was self titled ; I have it on vinyl. Very gritty (not my vinyl!),  and worth a listen.

    Please excuse the thread hi-jack, just find it an interesting conversation and wanted to chime in................

    For me I don't see many 'current' or modern cars ever having the appeal or collectibility of an older car. There are the typical reasons for this in terms of smaller production runs etc. but to me the main thing here is to do with era.

    Music, art, architecture you name it - all have a moment in time that most people will agree is defined as 'their best' that no other subsequent era has been able to match in terms of influence. Cars are no different and to me you can't go past the 70's to define the peak of motoring excellence in its purist form.

    I'm not saying that cars haven't go better because they most certainly have in terms of efficiency, safety, technology etc. but the 70's is where manufactures were pushing boundaries for the pure pursuit to make the best cars - and not necessarily the most profitable. It's no surprise that time after time the 73 RS is used as the yard stick and when you put it into context given the era you just can't replicate that now. Too many things have changed and I would love to say in 40 years the 918 will be as highly regarded but it's unlikely due to how quickly technology becomes superseded and renders anything new pretty much useless.

    Not saying that current cars won't be appreciated but I feel that very few (if any) will be held in the same regard as the 'originals' and hence why the early air cooled 911's are becoming the ones to have (see actually managed to get things back on topic!). Please don't see this as a dig on water cooled cars etc. it's just my more idealistic observation that I believe is the bigger picture in regards to this whole collectible car business/proposition.

    Having said that, a car that makes you smile every time you drive it is priceless and these come in many forms, mine just happens to be the humble little old 911.

    I owned this a few years ago. A Mitsubishi L200
     

     
    This is what was in it!
     

     
    A heavily worked 253 on LPG with Traumatic kitted trans.
    I wish I hadnt sold it, as it was the silliest thing I've ever driven. Sideways more often than straight, and it hosed quite a few cars pretty easliy.
    I'd buy it back in a heartbeat
