    Yet another PF kent buys a fancy Vee Dub

    So had been feeling I needed to experience a Porka at least once in my car owning life. After kicking around many ideas I landed on the decision a hotrod Porsche was the way forward. Not interested in the low kms matching numbers Aussie delivered cars that all the purists rub one out to. I want to drive it and not care about how many kms I put on it, track it, maybe mod it a bit and not worry about violating a colectible. So I put an add on scum tree. Among other things it turned up this car. An Aussie delivered 74 body built up into a 964RS clone with 3.6 engine built to RS spec (non vram) wide body, trick suspension, GT3 brakes etc etc. full ground up build by T and D in brissy in 2010. Shit tonne of receipt. Owned by an older guy retiring. Subject to nothing untoward in the PPI this week, the deal will be done.

    Has a CAMS certified cage with removable side intrusion so should be a good weekday toy and weekend track blaster with the capacity to do more serious Motorsport should it be required.

    Yeah, Brisbane car. Built by T and D so will go back to them for PPI.

    Plan will be to tidy it up cosmetically. Body is a bit stone chipped etc from some track work. Also will tidy the interior. Thoughts are retro GT3, so black alcantara dash with red stitching, some carbon dash panels etc. maybe some bonkers dish wheels for the street and use the ones on it for some track rubber. that's about it for a start as its a pretty good thing out of the box.

    Mate that looks unreal! I too have always wanted i nice 964 or 993 but then i think it's sacrilege, not to mention huge $$$ risk to track it and treat it like crap. So a hot rod is a great idea to have something that looks the goods but isn't too exy, and just enjoy thrashing it

    If there's yellow paint under there, I know the guy who built it originally.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Soooo,

    this car has a story

    The guy who originally commissioned the build was Stewart Rolfe. Is this the guy Gammaboy? Dodgy banker that went to the bum farm for ripping off a credit union. T and D did the build. I have seen over 60k in receipts. Prior to going to the big house the car was punted off to the guy I am buying it off. He stole it off the guy when he bought it and is passing it on for what I reckon is a very fair price.

    http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/quee...125-1qh1p.html

    Thanks for the offer re a paint check. Marlin is also very nearby and has made the offer to check it out. T and D will do a thorough check for tin worm. Really only worried about major strucctural stuff. The guy has been very straight up and sent detailed photos of the car close up where it has copped some stone chips from days out at Lakeside.

    yeah, unfortunately '74 is pre full body galvanizing so rust is something to be very cautious of

    I can vouch for the thourough-ness of TD Automotive though, they're straight shooters and will tell it how it is, even if it is one of their customers cars

    Nope - checked with my mate, he started with an 81, and didn't go wide body.

    Nice one. Bitsas are definitely the way to go if you want to drive them hard and modify in the current climate.

    Fuck driving. I actually have a really good guy that MC and I have used to take "the good stuff" from Brisbane south. Might be a good option for you. He has a one car truck, and banks on back loading so is just crazy cheap.
    My other guy is a local towy, careful and mates rates.

    ^^^ Thanks again. Will see how the PPI goes and then get in touch. A move south (Melbs?) and then containerized rail transport from there might be the go.

    Also check Ceva too. I've used them a few times now. Mainly Brisbane > Melbourne though.
