Ducks '85 911
 
As some of you may know already I sold the Miata and bought a '85 3.2 911.

Although there was no rust to be found anywhere it was in dire need of a repaint.

Got the car looking like this (extremely bad photo :D)

After just a week it died on me. Luckily it was just the alternator. It was a proud and sad moment at the same time. Owning three lovely cars with non of them running. :P

Decided that while it was down I might as well get the repaint done. Shaved the bumpers, added a whale tail and a Ruf valance. Also added half an inch to the BBS RS.

Say hello to the new daily.

Please tell us that's your garage.

If so. Game over, you win :P

I'd wish... It's Beek Auto Racing. But they let me store my cars and I can work on them when ever I want. They do quite a bit of work on the cars as well. Mostly engine related.

Unacceptable without a proper ass shot

I was hot to trot for a G50 911 in the last year and ended up with a classic Caddy instead....

I WILL have one someday though, and there's a guy in town that is the Orig, owner on a 71 or 2 that I supposedly have first right of refusal on if he ever sells it.

I'm REALLY digging the Cayman's too, but now that the 13's have come out it makes the older ones look dated....

Nice car for sure!If I lived in a warmer climate I would definitely have one but putting cars away for 3-4 mos or more a year makes it a little harder to justify.

Finally some better photo's. And an ass shot as requested ;)

The Ruf valance needs to adjusted as the gap on the right side is too big. Also want to paint the lower strip black on the valance as the original is black as well.

No bumperettes on the rear. Nice!

Got any interior shots?

I've been thinking of trimming some pole positions with night watch tartan (mines a dark blue interior).

I'm starting to hate both of you guys.....:tu:

Interior is still a mess. Have some lovely Recaro spider reproductions in carbon. But the rest is quite nasty. Tan carpets don't hold too well after 29 years. Plan is to do the carpets in black RS silverknit.

Did some cleaning. Removed the aircon, backdated the heat and removed the standard airbox. Went on the dyno after that and it showed a healthy 217bhp.

Looks great Ducks. I caught the Porsche bug myself with a Carrera white 997...

I seriously can't wait to see what you do with this. :D
