    Now what. 30 days and 1000 miles away. Need a place to stay, and a secure place for the car.

    Chris, I'm sure this is somewhere already but can you please refresh how much a complete polo motor with airbox and exhaust weighs? Thanks, Jim H.

    Jim,
    To be honest I don't remember. Some years back I took the time to figure it out. As I recall the engine and you have to add on a oil tank. It came in 80 to 100 pounds under a SWB 911. A 67 911S weighs 2271 pounds stock. As I recall this POLO car is like 2150 to 2175 pounds. I've done nothing to lighten the car. All steel body work except the fiberglass rear license panel with the steel one under it. My exhaust is probably 15 pounds lighter than a stock 6. My muffler only weighs 7 pounds.
    For better info on this talk to or email Dean. As he manufactures the basic kit and builds motors it's not my place to quote you a price. Plus inflation changes cost constantly so you'll need to contact him.
    www.polomotor.com

    His site is down for a couple days for updates.
    Bored? Go to mine. It also needs updates as the specs for the car have changed.

    After giving some thought as to what my car actually is, I came up with calling it a 912 SUPER. What's a 912 SUPER? I would say a Porsche 912 powered by a POLO or Emory 2CAM4.

    Saturday morning maybe 5 AM ish I'll leave Carpinteria and head toward South Bay to check out where I grew up and probably spend a little time in Costa Mesa. That afternoon sometime I'll head to the Long Beach Marriott where I'll spend the night before LUF8. If any of you are gathering somewhere in the area on Saturday, I'd like to attend.
    All cleaned up and ready for a 2500 mile road trip. 1100 miles later there a lot of dead bugs to clean up.
    PM me and give me a way to text or call if any of that works for you.
    Thanks everyone.

    I installed a almost new and still perfect set of Audette LED's. The previous owner has an Italian spec 911 and went back to Italian spec lights. As I'm all about improving safety and performance, these are perfect for this car. I had the glass clear masked.
    The little lights are used as daytime driving lights when in city traffic. I bought them at a BMW motorcycle shop.

    And whoever turned the photos, thanks.

    Added easy on easy off spare set of fog light covers with butterfly nuts for cooler weather. I have duel oil coolers in the front fenders. The little lights are LED daytime running lights. And picked up my second set of 6X16 Fuchs powder coated in Army green. They will be mounted with super stickies.

    I've been focused on the 69E lately. It's in the middle of painting at the moment. Body and doors are close. A second hood and bumpers are in the process. Then it's 1200, 2500, 3000, and finally 8000 before the polish. Then custom fitment of 2 altered trombone oil coolers with front crossover lines.
    I'll be doing a video reveal on the new SSI 38/41 mm tube heat exchangers this week for Soren at SSI. The current ones are 35/38 ID/OD pictured on the bench. Now I need to figure out how to post in on YouTube. I'll do a second one on fitment when the 3.2 MFI engine gets completed. I might do a third on a chassis dyno.
    Then the E gets the suspension changed to close to Longballa spec. As it's a Targa so we'll go 19/24 or 25 mm T bars and 18 mm F&R sways.
