thanks for membership here. almost finished building my 1st Porsche. I,m hoping I don't make to many mad by what I have built. I,m a hot rod guy and I build cars for me . I,m a retired fed. officer and I have been working on cars since I was 14 along side of my dad. now 65 yrs old and have the sickness way worse than should be allowed as my wife says. total to date is 12 cars. and that number changes seems like week to week. but the Porsche is a new one for me. hope you like. 450 hp small block 355 chevy with a 350 turbo trans with a very very narrowed dana 60 rear end.stock Porsche seats .I have installed a custom steering column with a removable steering wheel for easier entry. lol I,m 6ft 4 and 260. still looking for a few things to finish it but soi far not a lot of luck.

Wasn't sure how a non purist would fit in.
Put lots if work and time in the car so far and I must say it sure does get a lot of looks.as far as I can tell or see its the only hot rodded older 924 in our greater area here.

I second (third?) the need for pictures.

Just FYI, if you upload them to postimage.org, it will automatically resize your photos. I usually select the 800x600 pixel option.

Those photos are very tiny, but from what I can see, it looks like a very clean build!
