Hi,

I’m new to this group and am looking for an ‘honest’ late T Coupe, ideally a 73.5
What I mean by ‘honest’ is a car with as little rust as possible that runs and drives well, able to take a long tour with no excuses. I’m not obsessed with originality provided changes can be reversed. Matching engine/gearbox would be a plus.

Owned a 57’ 356 A (7 year restoration…) and a 91’ 964 Carrera 4, both sold now, which allowed me to gather a pretty good knowledge of those cars main qualities … and flaws!
Thought the passion would go away but I really miss the sound of a flat engine roaring in my back ... and the wrenching sessions too.

I live in Bellevue, WA. Please reach out with any leads, shops/contacts I should know. Thanks in advance,

Also, I did notice there was a get together every other month in Issaquah. Is it open to members w/ no cars ... as I'm a pedestrian :-)

Regards,
Olivier

Hi Oliver,

Welcome! You'll make a few friends and connections here on this site. I have a car, but I can't drive it there just yet. I got into an accident (ATV, not car) about 5 years ago, and I'm still not back to where I need to be yet. Yet. If your willing to make the drive down here, I live in Lake Tapps (aka...BFE). At least you won't need a passport:)

Don't fret too much. I can drive, just not that far yet.

I've met/know a few folks in this circle, but it would be nice to meet the others at the get together. If nothing else, the "pedestrian" and I will have a full belly.
