I am a non-smoking 50 year old automotive enthusiast and former owner of an automotive performance company. Of the many vehicles I have owned, his 911 has been an amazing car. It has unsurpassed reliability, wesome performance, op-down enjoyment, nd is always the center of attention. Every detail has been addressed to assure transformation from classic exotic street car to 2900 lb track-ready race-car in less than 1 hour.
This car has never been raced. Itwas used only as a marketing toolat a number of recreational track events on California road courses between'03 and '06. The four road courses were:
- Laguna Seca (now Mazda Raceway, onterey, A)
- Sears Point (now Infineon Raceway, onoma, A)
- Buttonwillow Raceway (Buttonwillow, A)
- Willow Springs Raceway -Rosamond, A. (about 1 hour north ofLos Angeles)
I bought this car in Los Angeles in '97 with 106,000 miles on it.
Before I bought it, he transmission and clutch assembly were rebuilt (I have all shop receipts from previous owner). I completed all cosmetic and performance modifications between '97 and '03. By '04, t became my company's marketing & track vehicle and was a feature vehicle at the '06 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, evada.
The recession killed my business by 2008, became a dad in '09, nd had a second child in '10. Since then, have had little opportunity to drive the car. As one of my 5 vehicles, only start it up every month and drive it once every 3 months. We are now running out of room and need money for home improvements. This car has been my dream to own and really I wish I could keep it. It has been an amazing car for me, nd by far, he most reliable of any of the 14 cars I have owned during my adult life (new and/or used). Unfortunately, have no choice but to sell it. My loss is your gain.
This is a 30 year old classic performance vehicle with a theft salvage title, o I want to make sure I am absolutely clear as to its condition, uances, nd idiosyncrasies.

THIS IS THE BEST HANDLING AIR-COOLED 911 THAT I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE TO DRIVE I have driven many '84-'89 911's, s well as '90-'94 911 C2's (964), nd also '95-'98 911's (993). None ofthemin their stock configuration could hold a candle to the perfectly balanced handling of this car resulting from 3 years of experimentation and testing at multiple California race-tracks.

It has just a few minor details that are typical of a garage-kept 30 year old street and track driven collector car.
- Passenger-side power window switch circuit may have a short, eed switch(es) replaced, r just need a fuse. Electric motor is fine, indow just stopped operating one day after a long winter in the garage. I have not had any time to address this issue, ut last time it occurred, ust replacing a switch took care of it.
- Headlights, ail-lights, nd parking lights all work. However, he rear right brake light works properly only when the headlights are off. When headlights are on, he right rear brake light dims slightly when brakes are applied. All other exterior lights work fine at all times.
- Convertible top takes a bit of finesse to put up and secure (doesn't quite fit right, ut isn't noticeable and the seal is not bad for a post-production conversion using factory parts). When the car is stationary in the rain, he top only allows slight drips at the corner where R&L windows meet the front windshield and top. When moving, here are no drips. Still..... Even though I have used this car as a daily driver many years ago, t's not exactly the most comfortable car in that capacity.
- Fit and tolerances of doors to body are slightly off, ut only noticeable if you are looking for it under close inspection. Again, his was a SEMA show vehicle, o it's a beautiful car, ut not meant to be (nor will it ever be) concourse quality.
- Tub underside shows signs of repair, ndicating some type of accident must have occurred many years ago, ut I have had no incidents in 18 years.
- Again, he car drives true and handles great, o cosmetic tolerances seem to be the only other evidence of this pre-theft-salvage event (pre-'96).
- During body and paint update in '97, he shop elected to secure the factory rocker panels by using visible body rivets during update (instead of the factory hidden clip method). Not a clean implementation, ut created an unintended cool look to the car
- Horn doesn't work. I believe wiring at horn in fender needs to be re-connected.
- Trunk lid shock that keeps lid up while open has lost a bit of its strength. Should be replaced.
- Winning bidder must pay a $500 deposit via PayPal within 24 hours of auction close.
- Full payment must be received by cashier's check, ash within 7 days of auction close or deposit will be forfeited.
- Buyer is responsible for organizing transport of car to their location, s well as any/all costs related to transporting vehicle to any location within the USA.
