One of my favorite early 911's is this red '73 built by Jeff Smith and now owned by Dario Franchitti. A 3.8 liter Varioram motor was stuffed into the back of this lightweight street missile. This was one of the nicest early cars that I have driven - docile and comfortable most of the time yet brutally fast when given the input.

Weird that I would stumble across another one of these so soon after I sold the last. This actually belongs to the widow of a long-time buddy who was an avid 356 owner and driver. I was visiting her last week and saw this tucked into a shelf out in the garage. I told her that we could find a new home that would appreciate it.
Like the last one, this is dated 1960. It is PRISTINE! Pages are very clean, cover is in great shape and the only noticeable flaw I can see is a small tear in the tissue paper on the spine.
Asking $275.00 SOLD!
I received a second batch of photos of the Aase GTU car this week from photographer Ted Zombek. These photos show the high level of restoration being performed. The goal is to have the car completed for a debut at the Porsches 2 Oxford event in Oxford, Ohio on July 30.

I received a couple of sneak preview photos today of the Aase Brothers Porsche 911 GTU car nearing the end of its restoration. Hopefully we can get it out to Mid-Ohio for some photographs later this year before the snow flies. The last two photos are courtesy ehpone2007 on Flickr. They were taken at Laguna Seca in 1980.
