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?

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
Oops. Add to the "present" list, 10204 01488, 2000 Touring Roadster project

And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 40 years) Over 55 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird

Porsches

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
