    Chamonix or Chamonix ?

    I had this painted in 1988! And I can't remember what I had for lunch yesterday. People still ask every now and then if the paint is new. I do remember buying the best paint available and I'm sure it's unavailable now. At least in CA

    Chamonix should be chamonix, looks white until you park next to a white car. Then it looks slightly tannish. Variations in chamonix are probably due to how much sun exposure, how the paint was cared for, waxs used, etc. over the years. Oh, and go single stage imho

    I have a period 350mm Momo wheel that is near perfect that I would consider trading for a equally nice 370 or 380mm wheel. Anyone interested? Greg 707-363-8498

    Just bought an MGB

    Compared to my M10 the cast iron MGB engine made it feel like I was driving a model A. And the suspension could be a lot stiffer. Over all a much more primitive automobile. I loved it for the pretty penny it turned though
  6. Your problem could also be water in the tank. Ethenol laden gasoline attracts water. I recently experienced this problem with my Jeep. Old gas in my Jerry can. If you live in an area where ethanol is added to fuel, it should be used within a couple of months.

    advice needed..aftermarket stereo reception issue

    Jim, is it well grounded? Or, I know that with our 40+ year old cars the antenna can be the issue. I have no idea how an antenna can wear out but apparently they can lose reception capability with age. Try hooking up your new radio to an external antenna borrowed from another car?

    Awww. Historically speaking, the Germans and the Brits haven't always been that cozy but these two look like a happy couple. They're not breeding are they!?

    Just bought a Porsche

    My car came Polo red and was resprayed the same about 20 years ago. Paint isn't perfect but it's still surprisingly good.

    Sun roof works flawlessly and doesn't leak. Pretty cool considering the car is 50 years old now. I think they put electric sun roofs in 200 911s in '67. On another note, Porsche apparently screwed up on the COA. I checked the slam panel plate and no S so the body is not an S body. Oh well, I'll never sell this car anyway.

    Tranny yes, engine unfortunately no. Have no idea where the original motor is. The car has a hot rod motor in it now. A '75 fuel injected 2.7 rebuilt with better pumps, chain guides, etc. It also has RS Pistons and cylinders. It's a screamer but I would love to find the original engine, not that I would install it though. I hope this isn't a COA typo, the engine number doesn't make sense for an S. Need to do some research

    Whoopi! and wow! I sent a request to Porsche for a COA on this car found out it's an S! and a very early one at that, manufactured 3/3/67 the first year of the 911S I'm thrilled with this news, this is the best Christmas ever in May!
