    Bought back my first car....66 Porsche 912

    When I was 15 my parents gave me $2000 to buy my first car. I bought a TURD of a 1966 Porsche 912. I drove it all through high school. I slowly got it to a good driver status and at some point in college tore it apart and prepped it for a paint job. About half way through body work, I find...

    Is anybody thinking of running coilovers in the rear?

    I like the idea of continuity in a build when it comes to the components used, and I've been thinking of using some QA1 coilover sleeves and springs on the front struts. I also like the idea of being able to tune the suspension with different spring rates, swap-able front to rear. I'll be...

    AleX1/9's City Goblin - 07 SS/SC donor - Chassis #18 - WA registered

    anybody have sub frame mounting bolt measurements / dimensions?

    I'm planning on checking out a potential donor at a local IAAI yard. The front took a substantial hit like many have. Does anybody have the measurements for the front sub frame bolts so I can check if it's still square? Also, does anybody have experience inspecting a vehicle at an IAAI yard...

    My donor search continues...

    I figured I would start a thread outlining my donor search, updating as I go. I had a $1500 bid in on this 06 SS supercharged model that sold today: Sale price was $1800+ fees assuming the seller accepted (it hadn't met reserve). I...
