As stated in the header WTB P car. No Guards Red or Black. No blue smoke on cold start, no majors. PPI required.
Syncros must be smooth. Stock car or darn close, no hot rods. People with bad taste that have transferred the bad taste to their cars need not apply. My fav color on these years 911's is Chiffon White but will entertain others.

I've owned quite a few P cars, and, like the idiot I am, I sold my last one to fund another useless project....isn't that the way. Do something stupid....to do something stupid...........gawd....will I never learn?
If you have a car and live in the Southwest that is all the better.

Regards,

I guess my first comment has to be ... Why?

Secondly, try Rennlist... this has to be the absolute worst place to look for a Porsche...

Having owned many collector cars and fun cars, for me it boils down to Lotus and Porsche for fun cars.
The engineering aspect of a P car is quite something. Pick a mid 80's 911 that gets 22 mph and will travel as high as 145 mph. Factory adjustable suspension and stops on a dime. They are quite something.

No, they do not handle like a Lotus. So.....I reckon I should own both before it's to late and I end up in diapers.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

As for advertising here............you never know what lurks in garages. Two years ago I found a bone stock Sunbeam Tiger in a garage owned by people that couldn't turn a wrench if their life was on the line.
