Trading one beetle for another Honestly, I'd jump at the chance for a well built 60's 911 too, so congrats! One of the guys I race with has a dialed in 911 rs/turbo replica with a 3.6 and it's a monster.

I've wanted a 911 / 912 for a long time now, just never had the opportunity to pursue it. I need a car I can drive and enjoy and this one fits the bill, classic looks with power to match.

The beetle was fun to drive (when it was together) but I've always wanted a f911 / 912, and now I have one.

Sorry to say, but that 911 is just one of many and also a project...

Still, I hope you'll finally get to enjoy a driving car mate
This 912 has been restored from the ground up. It has sat outside during the winter months because the owner did not have covered storage, but the foundation is solid based on the pictured of the restoration work. There are some minor paint bubbles and a few cracks in the fibreglass spoiler but all can be fixed without having to dis-assemble the car.

I'm really looking forward to driving it instead of re assembling my beetle. Maybe I'm getting too old, but only time will tell.

The only upgrades I am considering are Boxster brakes (for the circuit) but thats it. It has ventilated disks on all 4 corners, but I believe has 911 T calipers. Must keep the 15" wheels ! (did I actually say that ?? )

Yes, Adrian's car. I love the look and actually test drove a '78 SC last weekend before going to see Adrian. I thought the SC was fantastic during the test drive, but a drive in Adrian's car blew me away.

I believe I paid a fair price for what it is, only needing some restorative paint attention. The car was up on a lift when I got to his shop so I could see underneith and I was happy with what I saw.

Looking forward to running this car in an autocross and on the track. I've been waiting far to long to enjoy this.

Making the same power with a subaru may be cheaper for the engine alone,but most of the cost for such a project is setting the car up properly for such power.SubaruGears trans or all the adapters etc. with everything you you need will run you 5K also.I would rather stick with a G50 or mendeola for that price.Don´t get me wrong,I really like suby conversions and they make more sense in the long run,but it´s not really a whole lot cheaper anymore.Unfortunately the suby prices are rising rapidly also.
