    The rear wiper on the Burgundy car is incorrectly parked at horizontal, it should be vertical.

    FWIW, I had a bead drawn on the car in Niles. Car had some rust issues that don't show up in pics. Spent it first few years being drive in NE winters. If you want more details PM me.

    So how much do we figure a restoration as that on Freisinger's site or by Porsche add up to?

    Whoa! I was reading this thread, kicking myself at the sales prices of cars I’d apparently missed. Then I noticed the thread was from 2007.....!!!!!!!

    So nobody replied to the original question. why is the 69S regarded as the black sheep of the family? My only guess is the 2 liter engine. Chris

    It's certainly not for a lack of passion by their faithful following. Reminds me of the Sporto and Sepia cults where there is little to no correlation between enthusiasm and selling prices.
