Is that the one that came down from Santa Barbara?  Looks like it.

Entirely possible, I bought it from a guy in orange but he said he got it from up north. Any known history, or you just saw it for sale?

Saw it for sale. Was like $1200 up here then showed up down there for like twice that...

I figured he tried to profit when he said he had only had it a few months, but I'm content with what I paid ($2200). I don't have the space or time like I did in Pennsylvania when I built my 510 so I needed a decent driver that wasn't $3k+. It's rough enough that I have my work cut out for me but I can still drive it which is nice. If anyone has extra parts I have a laundry list of things I'm looking for haha

It’s ok as long as it’s not insomniacs it’s all good in the hood. 

 

Just in in case you guys  are wondering. Truck is down. Something is keeping it from going over 1500 rpm. Go figure. Getting lap top together to trouble shoot. I also just bought brand new Corbeau seat let’s and will install today so I can install seats already. And stereo dropped wheels back off to get all finished and should have on the road hopefully in the next week os so as long as work allows. Tomorrow is JCCS so I will be there with the wagon which after the show I will pull engine and build new one for.

You sure Mr Tanker that your mechanic did not govern it down so you would not hurt yourself?  LOL

I’m the mechanic. Just did not do turbo plumbing. It seemed as if the TPS plug was the problem stay tuned. Also the expensive unsure alternator is a dud. I am pulling it and going back to a 60 or so Amp. Mounting seat belts boring [yawn] and getting seats bolted in also. 

 

New wheels are are almost done and having new top hats made right now. For the 5 lug of course.  

 

Took ok my wife shopping for a new Porsche or used for that matter. I really want a GT3 but she thinks a regular 911 is fine. I feel go big or go home. Used of course. I just love them. We will see money tree died in the hot sun.
