Thread: Choice between 2 classics

  1. #11
    Such intrigue....we're only trying to be helpful. I sold a 70-S (full nut and bolt restoration) in the early summer of this year....if the SN ends in 0237 you might want to reach out to me. Like you, I thought I had done a full 'data and history' check. Oh man, do I have a story. Unlike the guys who misrepresented it to me, I made full disclosure when I sold it after learning the ugly truth. At that point, I lost any control about how the next guy/dealer would represent it....hence my suggestion to provide the VIN on the chance it could be the same car.

    Not that number Mac. I am not at the stage of verfiying the certified VIN/engine/gearbox/body numbers that I have seen and matched with Kardex as yet, I just wished to know if , having these two models in an identical state, which one is the better of the two. That is all . I feel that all the intrigue is being caused by members who happen to hit on this very simple and plain post .

    “Identical state”.

    Fool’s errand to believe that. Absolutely IMPOSSIBLE.
    Warning! If I crap on you itís not on purpose.

    I often buy parts I think I need but find out I already own.

    "Save the whales."
    "Save the Rain Forest."
    "Save the baby humans."

    Sorry; the sceptic in me doesn’t believe that either.

    I guess I may be a little skeptical like Frank ; very few cars are restored to perfection - that's a big adjective .

    Hard to compare the 911T and the 911S. The S with that exhilarating rush to 7300 rpm and the 911T (tame) where you have the engine fade off at 6000 rpm. easy choice in my book. Chris
    1. Chris-Early S Registry#205
    2. '70 911S Tangerine
    3. '68 911L Euro Ossi Blue

    Believe me sir, these two are very close to what you describe as "to perfection"
