By the way, that rear axle is insane! I'll bet you get lots of looks going down the road!

Absolutely we do.its not a beast at all.lol my says it's a sheep in wolf's clothing.
Its only a 355 sbc stroker with a decent cam and to much carb for now but it will all change very soon as soon as the new motor is done.we aren't going crazy like we usually do with these but its a big bigger with a tad more power.
409 block
All roller
For durability we have had it all shot peened and magnafluxed to find any cracks in the block and heads.
Just trying to keep it running longer.
If we want to fast we her out the nova..its a full on drag car.
So yes we drive the Porsche a lot.and yes indeed its a rush when you hammer it .the big meats in back do throw off a bit of tire smoke.

Yes indeed we do.I'm getting it ready as we speak for its 1st show in 2 weeks.
Been having trouble with the remote radiator fill neck on the intake but I got the new top plate today and it will be fixed tomorrow.
This car starts really quick and only takes a min.or two to warm up enough to go.I'm putting the wheelie bars back on this Thursday when it warms up some
In the low 50,s here.
Just need to detail the engine back up and polish up the tins I made to go around the engine compartment.
But it's pretty much ready to go.

I thought I was doing a deal on my car for another car plus cash my way to a guy in Myrtle beach Fl. we met in Nashville to check out the cars.i arrived aftet they did by a short time . while just started talking to him his 2 sons took both cars off the trailers and put my Porsche on his and they strapped it down. he said he had to go into the truck stop place we met at to use the restroom. he walked by my truck and he tossed in a envelope on my seat. next thing I know his boys are driving off with the Porsche and he runs out and jumps in his truck and they haul ass. I went back to my truck and called him and no answer of course. I to this day have not spoke to him. refuses all contact. I checked that envelope and expecting the 5k and title I got the title only. he stiffed me the 5 k. he has a copy of my title not the original. I loaded up the car he left and stated back to Kansas. I did 1200 mile is 20 hrs and was pissed. I called the troopers in all states concerned and reported it stolen. I saw he listed it for sale for 3 days in Myrtle beach craigs list for 18.500 then for 17.500 and I tried calling the number and left msg after msg. I filed a lien on it here and its reported as stolen. his car is in storage and my atty. is filing on him this Monday. if you come across this car let me know or call me.Jim 913 226 0635.

Exactly my same remark after it happened.I,m a retired fed officer to and to think I let myself get taken like this.its in the legal hands now.
Was just trying to let my fellow Porsche people know that its a bad deal if anyone buy a it and then loses it back.the seems to make a habit of ripping off folks.spoke to a sheriffs deputy there and they are his words very well aware of who thus guy is and that they will keep a eye open for my car
