    Restoration

    I have a 1967 Porsche 911S. I raced the car for several years and went off road in Turn 1 at Pacific Raceway in the rain a few years ago. I am now ready to undertake the car's repair. It is an R Clone. I want to keep the R Clone status and make it an R Gruppe hot rod. It has a twin plug 2 liter with 40 mm Webers and all the trick stuff. I am looking for a shop to undertake this project. It needs a roof and some body parts and should be put on a jig.Name:  1967 Porsche 911S.JPG

    Ahhhh the sixties... I envision myself one early Saturday morning with black frame glasses, plaid shorts, black shoes and white socks smoking a cigarette driving to a hardware store and buying a bag of nails... .

    If you're still looking I would highly recommend calling Louis at J&L in Puyallup (https://jandlfabricating.com/). Tell him you got info from The Doc. You might already be familiar with them since he often takes cars to Pacific Raceways. He restored cars and provided trackside support for me for many years until I retired. Very honest and top notch work. Bill

    I had similar work done after a very similar crash in my 72 S. It will cost you $100k to sort that.

    And take two years. Best of luck and itís worth doing, and doing well.

    He is good and well respected.

    Funny...turn 1 at Pacific was the only time I ever spun my car. First race first lap ever.

    Good luck with your project.

    Never been there but just watched a video of an SCCA race at Pacific Raceway. It's one of those tracks you never want to walk during a race weekend. Way too many large tree trunks and not nearly enough armco.
