Father / Son Project

Air-cooled cars are the best, my Dad went through many “phases” Cadillac, American, German, and has currently settled on being an airhead he loves Volkswagen. He has built Kharmann Ghia’s, Beetles, a Double-Cab, and has a number of Buses. We wanted to work on a car together,  I wanted something with a bit more panache so after 6 months of searching I found the best car I could afford, a 1974 911.  It has taken a couple years to restore, and seems like a project that will not end, but, I love it!!

Here is the “final” result

It took a ton of restoration work, the car sat in California for 30 years, and needed a lot of love this was the car we started with:

I had to fix the entire fuel system from the gas tank all the way back to the injectors with everything in between, new fuel lines, fuel pump, rebuilt fuel distributor, and warm-up regulator, new accumulator, and injectors.

Need all of the safety work, new tires, and brake pads, and rotors.

Then I decided to do a full down to metal, glass out respray in the original factory, and what I think is the most gorgeous color: Copper Metallic Brown
