The Car Show Season is Upon Us!

Thankfully, it was a pretty short winter for me this year. We had Rennsport in October and the weather is already warm and sunny here in the Midwest. Hershey Swap meet is only a month away!  Yaaaayyy.

Is everyone PUMPED for 2012? Isnt this exciting?  Well maybe almost everyone...

Rich Dickson's old '67 sedan. Nice car...clean paint, nothing gaudy...and carrying a big stick. That's 11.0's naturally aspirated!

1969 - 1971 Factory 911 Tool Kit

Up for sale is this rare and complete factory tool-kit for 69-71 911.

- The black basket-weave bag is near perfect, very clean on the inside with no rips and very clean latches.
- The pair of red-handle screwdrivers are original equipment and in excellent condition except for the tip of the blade driver which has been lightly ground.
- The spark plug wrench is a correct and difficult to find "square head" type.
- Pliers are correct and extremely rare type with the chrome side cut design. They have some light pitting from age, but are in better than average condition.
- Open end wrenches are the correct drop-forged type and all five are present and accounted for along with the box-end wrench.
- Fan belt wrench, allen key and lug wrench are all correct and in excellent condition.
- Fanbelt is a later factory Porsche piece
- Porsche towel is included.


Porsche 356 Roadster/Convertible D Windshield Frame FS
