Happy days, I fetched my Porschie from the Motorvia depot yesterday
It looks even better in person than in photos. I will post some nice pics soon, it just needs a good wash first.
Excellent news, it drives beautifully, bad news is we had to push start it. Either the battery is kaput, or the alternator is not charging it. The car is at my inlaws' place for now, with the battery on charge, so tonight I'll take it home and start fiddling in the garage.
More bad news, there is a crack in the windscreen...that's going to make the roadworthy process a bit harder. Good news, the wood rim steering wheel is not too bad, and there is a semi decent gear knob too.
I can see the previous owners didn't put much time into the car, but that's okay, gives me more to do. Will have to replace all the dash switches, as they are a bit dodgy. Also, will have to move the steering wheel up a bit, as all I can see on the speedo is 0 up to 40km/h and then again from 140 and up. So inbetween is a mystery.
It's got flared wheelarches, but they don't look bad. The wife wants me to keep them and put Fuchs wheels on, but I'm still keen to go back to original. Will have to see what happens. It's got some TSW rims or something on now with 185 wide tyres, and I must say it does look good with the wider tekkies. But a 5.5" x 15" wheel ill also take a 185.
Originally the car was going to be as close to stock as possible, but seeing as I'm not going to be entering it in any concours events, I think I'll rather personalise it more...
Will post pics soon.
