  1. Yes I know, first world problems. Having not long completed my third annual 1000+ Kim road trip with 4 other guys in early cars you are spot on, they are to be driven and enjoyed and it is. But...here we go (deep breath).............my name is Ash and I’m a Porscheaholic 🤪 early stages
  2. Thanks for the replies and general consensus is aligned with what I’m thinking The ‘69 looks great and is well done but has been on the market for some time confirming the current market. Craig, your ex racer hotrod looks the goods locked away in the museum there 👌
  3. So I have had my 71e on the market for a while and no dice. Aussie delivered sporto fully restored non matching numbers now with 915 5 speed. The market is a strange place at times and It would appear to me that currently anything but concourse, matching numbers cars are not in high demand (unless heavily discounted) A huge fan of longhoods and a good project I bought it as a 930 look bitsa with a slate grey hotrod in mind. Despite what I wanted I thought I was being sensible with an eye on resale and got caught up in originality, narrow body, back to original Bahia Red (not a big fan of red), sourced a correct 2.2e engine and endless other original parts.......which in the end have not delivered a speedy sale. All that aside I’m keen to do a hotrod project with a bit more power, colour change, slight flare to the rear along with a few more things and have been looking at options which either need a heap of bodywork Andy the rest. So if it were you would you hold out for a buyer and start over with a new project from scratch, rust repairs ++++++ or..... take the rust free, everything done car I have, strip it, change engine and hotrod it to my taste?
  4. So... drum roll.....has it sold?
  5. Ahh ok. I did read that online, thanks for the tip
  6. Anyone done LHD to RHD conversion or know of someone that can do it? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1965-Porsche-356C-Manual/SSE-AD-6152332?pageSource=details&id=SSE-AD-6152332
  7. Have to agree 993 is slowly growing me but the fried eggs will take some time if at all. I did even do some googling of Frankensteining front end of a 993 to 964 (gasp..shock..horror) but not an easy task apparently.
  8. I haven't warmed to 993s yet, it's a headlight thing
  9. That's a whole lot of bike work going on there Looks good but no D90s for me though
  10. Oh that stings a bit but it’s gold.....I knew it was coming 😩 Auto for work days manual for the weekends
  11. At the risk of sounding like a crazy man posting ads for everything and finding nothing...yet Rather than another classic project that will spend most of it’s life in the garage I have had some thoughts around a 964 tip as a daily with a few mods and probably a colour change so a sad unloved one would be ideal. I have seen them on cs and alike in the past but currently none except a couple of cabs but It has to be a coupe. Anyone know of any lurking about? cheers Ash 0418689252
  12. Porsche obsessed and keen on a project...awesome My only tip is get something as complete as possible. As good as the hunt for the missing parts is, It will cost a bomb.
  13. Fully restored 911 E for sale as per carsales listing https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-1971/SSE-AD-5637561/?Cr=30 Price firm at $145000 but it's time for a change so will consider part trade for something interesting, new, old, project or complete. Has to be RHD and no offence taken if i'm not interested. What's out there? PM or 0418689252 Cheers Ash
