  1. I recently purchased a scruffy, hot rodded 75,( that I want to transplant components into a early car), and parked it in the driveway. In my 2 plus years in my home, a neighbor has had maybe 5 minutes of poker faced conversation with me. While checking the mail, someone came running up behind me and said, " Is this your car?!!". With that she ( said neighbor) gushed that she " had one with round tail lights in college and met her husband during that time". He suddenly appears and said " he noticed her driving it back then and thought she was cool". When I asked," would you like to drive it?" She snagged the keys and was gone with her hubby in a NY second... Maybe they were the high bidders?
  2. Since you asked... I imported a car out of Canada 2 years ago. It was drivable but I had it delivered. Most of the heavy lifting was done by a customs broker. Duty was 2 Pts and everything else another $1200. All in all ,not that painful. Definitely a cool car, but 5x $13,500 will come up short. I recently picked up a {originally similar similar condition) 67 911 that was in restoration for 7 years. Granted Porsche parts ain't BMW parts, but you are looking for some rare ones. Non matching block is not a plus. What is equal between Porsche and BMW, is qualified labor to essentially recreate a new car. Stripping, metalwork, prep, paint interior ,glass, electrics, suspension, brakes, drivetrain, trim, assembly and trouble shooting etc. piles up. Then there is scheduling and cash flow(drain) plus getting in queue with a competent shop. I don't think on this car you would want to cut corners . There I said it.
  3. Recently replaced a set of Sumotomo 205/60's with 185/70 CN36's on Alpine steelies. Drove them from Seattle to LV and through the Mojave to Ensenada MX. Quiet, good great handling. excellent in the wet and track straight. Super ugrade
  4. Looks infinitely cleaner with the US add on's shaved and euro tag and front turn signal ights
  5. I have a set of these for sale, 195-60-14” mounted on bottlecaps. Less than 600 miles on them. Awesome tires.

  6. Drive it in the late Spring or ship it now
  7. Thanks for your responses. Nice 1600
  8. Anyone running a set of these on the street? Normally I don't care for modern but got a nicely modded DE car and thinking of a set of these on 14" rims. For the purists I am running CN36's on my 1600 and they are great. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Falken&tireModel=Azenis+RT615K%2B&partnum=96HR4RT615KP&GCID=C13674x012-tire&KEYWORD=tires.jsp_Falken_Azenis+RT615K%2B_Tire&code=yes&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI-Yqw_sD85QIVedThCh3iAAuuEAEYASABEgKrBPD_BwE
  9. US 1972 tii, November 71 production
  10. Anyone else needing clear windscreen? Picked up a newly restored car today and the windscreen was a revelation form my blasted 1600
  11. Candy Apple Green homage to American Hot Rods. A lot of variation in the pictures. Failing metal flake, monitors, old film...
