My name is Pete and I’m just getting back into ‘02s. Live in Portland and bought my first car when I was 15, a blue ‘69. It then got backed into and I turned it into a ‘73 rebuild from John’s import. Then a few years later I converted it into a tii with the help of a great guy (name I wish I could remember his name) who was in the Multnomah neighborhood. With help from him and Mike O’Hara, I was obsessed.
After regrettably selling that car, I’m back with a 1972 Malaga Tii. Bought from a friend’s brother who had it since 1990. Sunroof, tobacco (I think). Front end damage. Rusted fenders and spare well. The kugelfischer leaks and the engine and rear end have drips.
I can’t wait to spend all my money.
I am looking for local connections for parts and advice. Feel free to reach out.
