I missed Wolfgang's birthday!

Dang!  I can only plead that we were traveling and I completely forgot his birthday.  

 

Wolfgang (named for Mozart) came together on 6 Feb 1969; I got him on 4 May '69 from Bavarian Motors on Northern Blvd in Queens, after a 4 month wait due to an East Coast dock strike that halted all shipping on the Atlantic side.  I've had him ever since; odometer now reads 224k miles.  

 

Repainted in 2001 after all his rust (and that was a lot after 30 Ohio winters) was repaired--over a six year period.  Interior is all original (even the carpets!) as is the tranny and differential.  And I may have the only Porsche synchro tranny with a good second gear synchronizer!  A valve job at 157k is the only engine work done. 

 

Ludwig and I will see you at Mid America & Vintage; if all goes well Wolfgang and I will be at Ofest this year.

 

That's Wolfgang on the right (Nevada) and Ludwig on the left (Sahara).

 

cheers

Beautiful car, happy belated birthday to Wolfgang. I’m a sucker for the early cars. Nevada early cars with a roof are the best. Love an original owner story. Thanks for the help you given through the years. Alex

Don, Too accurate. Yesterday it was warm, almost 50F. I was crawling around on the garage floor under my old car. We woke up to a foot of snow. Another 6-8 inches expected. The tractor is back in the garage taking up valuable work space. Alex

Mike, this is what happens (the forgetfulness) sometimes when you are as old as dirt, like we are.
