racingswim2006 Hmm. 2 cars for 50% of the value of just the 67? Sounds very lucky indeed.

DPeterson3 To be fair, these are excellent cars to restore and drive. I enjoy the earlier, less refined models. A more visceral experience. I just spent too many years facing peculiar Porsche owners to allow myself to join their ranks.

I have a hunch the stereotype best fits the new-car buyer rather than a dedicated hobbyist that never quite gets his fingernails clean.

I hope you'll keep this thread updated with your progress.

Aggie57 I love Alfa's but man a 911 is just such a well rounded car. Great find!

Actually, and no kidding, this is not true. If one absorbs Jung and Keirsey, it is only the Extraverts that think they're cool. Or want to be. They make up about 60% of the population. Introverts don't give a **** how they appear.

Cool score!! They are fun cars. You'll have to join Pelican Forum now!! AlfaRules is there!
Hmmmm. Porsche people "think" they're cool. There is a difference.

Thank you! I've been a member of Pelican for a decade now. Have been toying around with Porsches for quite sometime now.

Thank you all for your great comments! Yes, I really got lucky being at the right place at the right time! I think I'm keeping both. I do have plans for both cars already.

PSk If the '67 is really a 911S and in what appears to be very good original condition you surely have a massive bargain.

I'd sell the '77 to fund any work required on the classis/historic '67

ECARRILLO Very good deal.

DPeterson3 All in good fun.

When I ran a BAP/Geon store near Houston many years ago, we observed traits associated with various types. This was in the 70's, to give it context.

Porsche owners, by far, provided the most eye-rolling moments.

Looks to me like you got a smoking deal.

Had several ones before so I'm not really new to the brand. Gold chains? That came with the Corvette I refused to purchase. Interested? Besides, I still have several Alfas.

DPeterson3 Well, yes. But now you'll bear the stigma of being a Porsche owner. Did they come with any gold chains?
