      I wouldn't say 100%, as it also looks like a 911S/SC with a front plate/plate mount. The proportions are close for both but the detail is obscured by compression artifacts enough that I'm not sure if...

      And the Skoda is better looking/has better visibility for it.

      Tiny windows and big blind spots SUCK!

      Ba-dum, tish! :)




      It was the concept that would've begat the actual production ready version with different door handles and probably a less gee-whiz interior (because show cars don't have...

      Mmmmmmm... no. It's definitely not handsome, but it probably isn't even on the top 100 list for worst looking production cars ever made. That should be its own thread, so feel free to start one if...

      Buick has knocked it out of the proverbial ballpark recently, but this looks more like Casey at bat.

      To beat the illustration to death, I thought when I clicked that they would've knocked the...

      :beer:

      Now if only I could get away for a while!

      Fat chance of that, though I do plan on building a fresh engine for the Bug and using it for a killer road trip, so who knows. Maybe I'll go up...

      That all looks great!

      Well... except for the dishwasher. That's just awful. ;) :P


      Anytime you want to talk air cooled I'm perfectly happy to wax poetic about them. :)

      Congratulations on the (wife's) new ride. It is amusing to see people so perplexed as to why you'd want the latest and greatest with essentially zero miles. Even a guy like me gets it!

      Even though...

      I had to do it up. There isn't a lot of detail, but the old 2007 photo does indeed look like a later torsion sprung 911.

      Well, I just saw that the new Buick (Encore plus, whatever it's called) is getting a 1.2 or 1.3 liter 3 cylinder turbo and the original Encore soldiers on with the 1.4 turbo, so a 1.5 seems more than...

      Agreed. I also want to pull the opener and put in rubber isolation pads to quell some of the noise transmitted to the rafters, but I'm not sure if it's worth the bother.

      Mine has old hinges and...

      Some of that looks like the method from before there were kits for this kind of thing, but that makes sense since the DTM shroud ("down the middle) goes back decades. Jake Raby bought the company...

      There are supposedly some minor shims out on the market to shove the pulley rearward, but I've never dealt with that. The problem is probably one of the fiberglass itself. The alternator straps down...

      Yeah, when you shell out money for something that you're locked into for a long time it's nice to hear some confirmation, that's for sure! Now if only you could get reliable, repeatable and relevant...

      911 radiators. 3 of them.

      Sigh. :(

      I missed this earlier... I think you'll be happy, as we went with Marvin, too. The frames are fiberglass, mostly so we could have a bone color on the inside and a dark bronze (almost black) on the...

      KEP Clutches are supposed to be adjustable for height, which I could double-check when I get home if I think about it, which isn't likely. :laugh:



      Lots of companies stop development after...

      What do you hate about KEP clutches? I have a new 1700 lb. pressure plate and a stock (rigid) disk and was planning on using those. Do you think that is going to be a problem?

      While I agree one shouldn't go overboard with carrying things, I would never drive a Bug or a 911 without a spare belt, as you cannot drive more than about 30 seconds without it. Points and...
