Got 2 for the price of 1 Super!

'67 and '77 Porsche 911S for $22K. Both running and in great shape! Engine on the '77 has been upgraded to a 3 liter and the '67 came with an extra complete (with webers) engine too!

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

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. :)

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.

Very good deal.

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

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. :)

Porsche People are cool! Got to hang out with them when they had their convention this June. They loved the Race Car. They were also glad to find out I repair the Bosch Ignition Boxes.
Cool score!! They are fun cars. You'll have to join Pelican Forum now!! AlfaRules is there!

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

Hmmmm. Porsche people "think" they're cool. There is a difference.

I think we all think we're cool regardless of what vintage car we're driving. :)

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.

You have a point. :)

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

DPeterson3 07-18-2016 07:22 AM

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.
