    Re: 1983 911 Targa SC

    It must be so nice being able to dismount the whole car and rebuild it . 

    I used to do that with mopeds when I was a kid , taken them completely a part , engine also and rebuild them better . Would love to be able to do that on a car too !

    Re: 1983 911 Targa SC

    it is great fun and to me more satisfying than just buying a new car off the options list...

    but it took me a while to discover that.....actually driving the 78 SC through Asia is what totally converted me...I discovered the joy of driving versus performance stats on paper

    I always tell myself that if I ever make it to a point that I don't need to work for my money anymore, I'll just buy myself a workshop and a project car and teach myself how to work on it... should be a nice and fulfilling hobby.

    work on the targa started at early911s.

    Manfred Hering is guiding me on the project himself.

     

    Wow, you get going right away! Although...

    a suspicion I have, more money than planned you will spend.

    Suggested the same to a friend who is head of a local garage and thinks about becoming independent. Advantage of sharing a garage with him would be the chance of him finishing the project should I get annoyed at some point.

    Haha!  Love it!!  My first Porsche was a chocolate brown 83 targa,now 60 Porsches after, it still is a good memory, absent rubber centred clutch.  Enjoy yourself!!!!kiss


    Re: 1983 911 Targa SC

    I recently had the pleasure to drive a 1971 2.2 S Targa on some curvy Swiss Mountain roads, what a great car.

    Agreed  - just had it put into my Singer. is your car at Tuthill now?


    Re: 1983 911 Targa SC

    cray: the one at Tuthill is just about to be completed and be shipped to Trieste for the Adriatic Challenge which starts with scrutineering on the 17th.

    the targa is at early911s in Wuppertal germany. quite the place with an amazing collection of classic Porsche. for sale and for restoration.
