FS - Best Fuchs in the World?

For sale is this set of five (5) original and matching Fuchs Deep-Six wheels. These are dated 11/70 and 12/70 and were removed many years ago from a 26,000 mile original 911E.

The four road wheels( # 1-4 in photos) are near perfect (9.9 out of 10) and are shod with vintage but not original Michelin XWX Radial tires. (tires are hard and should not be used). The spare tire (#5 in photos) wears its original Michelin X tube tire. This wheel has never been mounted to a car. It is essentially NOS and is perfect! You wont find a more pristine set of deep-6 Fuchs anywhere.  Perfect for a preservation 71 911.

Good core deep-6's are $600-$800 each and then you have restoration costs including shipping. Why have restored wheels when you can have original at the same cost?

Price - $5200.00

Blowing Off the Cobwebs

Been neglecting the blog. Hopefully this makes up for it.
My buddy Jim's Aga Blue 67 911 Factory Trans-Am car looks pretty good without the racing livery doesn't it?

For Sale - Nice Original Leitz Luggage Rack for Porsche 356

This is a nice little luggage rack. No dents or bends and the chrome, while not perfect, is good and has a nice shine. The plastic rub strips are intact and un-cracked. I would rate this as an 8 out of 10 simply because the chrome shows a little age.
Would look perfect on anything but a perfect concours car.

$475.00 plus shipping

American Racers

Issue 217 of Excellence Magazine has my piece on two vintage short wheelbase 911's that competed exclusively here in the U.S.  Both cars were discovered by Don Ahearn and restored to their '60's livery.

I thought that I would share some of the vintage photos of the cars from the '60s.
