Cool My Toys-Porsche,BMW, and FORD

Here's a pic of My 1972 Porsche 911, with the e46. I restored it, and converted it from a 911T (2.4) to the 911S (with the 2.7), but the body still says 2.4...its a sleeper.
I washed them both last weekend...

Thats it...

Those are my toys on wheels, except one...I am currently restoring a 1931 Ford Model A Roadster, I know this is a little before the times of the e46, but I thought you guys might enjoy a little change in pace...

the model T was recently restored, all orig parts, and it runs like a top, its very..

reliable. Its enjoy max's out at 25 HP . It runs of coils, and can be started by a crank. It is very prehistoric, its before the days of manual shiift (the model a i'm building is the first manual car). The model t is 2 levers by the wheel that are the spark and the acceleration, and it has 3 pedals. Brakes, Reverse, and FWD. Theres a lever going through the floor but its only for shifting the car into "high" and enabling the parking brake, there's no shifting lever like on a manual. You shift into high by releasing the gas and thrusting the lever forward , then pounding the gas again. The car probably tops at 35 mph, and is very smooth.
hah its truly a MECHANICAL machine////

Here's the Model I'm building before....

:smile:
This is the car I'm currently working on. This picture was taken by my father in 1956 soon after he finished building it. He built the car from parts that he collected from junk yards, and parts that were still left over at Ford Dealerships (there were no repro parts companies then). He drove the car for about 45k miles and then sold it because he needed money for school.
He kept track of the car, and had an idea where it was. About 15 years ago, he saw it in the town he lives in, and after inspecting the car, he saw that it was indeed his. It's has some individual characteristics, the mixing of the green paint, and the whole car was bult with brass bolts (dont rust), and there were some parts he constructed by hand because they couldnt be found. Then about 5 years ago, we called the guy who he had met 15 years prior about purchasing the car back, he was hestitant, but after we visited the car it was running on a couple cylinders, and was not on a good path. So, we ended up working a deal and buying the car back. We soon after took everything apart, right down to the frame. We have the engine, and 90% of the parts taken apart and restored. We had the body blasted and prime, and its now being painted. Thats our only hold up , this guy we took it too is the best around but slow as hell. The guy who blasted the car knew a model a specialist, who said the body was in the best condition that he'd ever seen, which was because my father layered the car with red lead paint before priming and having it painted 40 years prior.
He built the car when he was 18, and now i'm doing it...so its a pretty cool family tradition...keep you guys updated!
