    My Guess, 1974 911 T.
    Perhaps, a low mile classic with a touch of oil on the floor (all classic Porsche's mark their spot)

    Close! but no cigar. It's a 1968 911 Targa with 177,000 Miles on it. It's the "Base Model" and mostly unmodified. Got it for real cheap! and it runs! but it needs engine work to run its best.

    Porshe...Targa?


    I'd had a love of classic muscle cars my entire life,only these last couple of years have I not had one and I do miss having one to drive and tinker with.

    Yes, The Porsche is nice, only 236 of that type were made in '68. It's also known as a "Transitional" Model, as it has features found on '67's and '69's. the 1991 cc Flat-Six doesent have much power(146 HP) but it does move quite nicely. also get 26 MPG!

    I used to collect and restore '62 Buick Skylarks and Specials. Had almost one each of every model for that year. I was missing only the deluxe wagon and deluxe 4 door sedan. ****, I even had one of the 5 Skylark hearses produced that year. Ah, to be back in my 20s with a cushy gubment job again! Had too much money and time for about 4 years.

    My uncle has a mid thirties Dodge pickup he restored. Very sharp. I think he said he paid $60 for it. I'll snap a pic and post it.

    67 Cougar, far from being done my way but still a good start for my broke butt.

    Nice. My first truck was a '56 Ford. Just before the HenryJ I drove a '61 Falcon pick-up called the "Radical Ranchero" Tube straight axle and a big block chevy...glad I survived.

    Close, very close. Mine is a 1951 Kaiser-Fraiser HenryJ Deluxe
    There were very few Allstates sold by Sears and Roebuck in the catalog when compared to the HenryJ models sold through the Kaiser dealerships. The Allstate would be very collectible.
    Mine has been a hotrod since the late sixties. There was no going back.
