    904 GTS/memory lane

    Here's a picture of me and my 904 GTS in the early 70's. I raced the car for some time, then restored it to concours condition and it placed second in class at the Porsche Parade. Sadly, I sold it in the eary 80's, but the memories are wonderful. I will post a few other memory lane pictures after this one...

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Wow!
    Ok I'll Say it again WOW!

    I am now speechless , this is the car that is my ultimate dream......
    Thank you for sharing.


    Ps How are you enjoying the new turbo . I am debating between the gt3 and a turbo .

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Absolutely STUNNING car! I love the 904!

    Just one thing though... that can't be the early 70's because I see a 928 in the background :P

    Late 70's perhaps... as they were produced 78'-95'

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    That's a beauty!

    You should've kept it!
    Way better than any turbo.

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    My thoughts exactly.
    Pretty strange. You NEVER forget the date you take over a baby like that....
    And this is definately not the early 70'ies.
    Wonderbar, please sort this out

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Thanks for catching my date error, guys. This photo was in the late 70's, taken in DC, after my restoration. I had bought the car in the early 70's in England, then brought it to the US to race and enjoy. To make my remorse worse, I bought the car for 4000 US delivered to New Orleans. I actually drove the car, with full race decals and preparation, off the docks and all the way north through Mississippi to Memphis. A bit naive and crazy...

    I'm a buyer at $500k if anyone knows of one for sale in good condition. Seriously.

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Here's a couple.. The red one was on display at Porsche of Naples, and the silver one was at the 50th PCA Parade..the red one compliments of the Collier Museum in Naples, a private museum chuck full of Porsches..

    I apologize in advance for the large images.












    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Here is one right in your price range. Available at the Christies auction in August.

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Does anybody else feel the same? When I see pics of a 904, or a genuine '73 RS 2.7 for that matter... I feel real love... I love those cars man! Should I be worried?

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Thanks, Roy (in NH). Those auction houses really know how to get bidders going, and then tack on a hefty fee as well. I wonder if the collector/vintage car market will be impacted by the slowing global economy and weaker stock markets?

    Joost, you obviously have great taste!

    Doncapecop, thanks for sharing those pics, and I'm glad you kept the image size large. Cheers all.

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Here are some 904 pictures I took at the Monterey Historics a few years ago....

    Re: 904 GTS/memory lane

    Some more from the Historics....
