Phew…I feel better now. Really needed to get that out of my system.
That’s what I want. That’s what I would sell my car for. That’s what I think is the ultimate early 911. Well, maybe a black 911R. That’s the ultimate 911 but that car doesn’t exist. Yes it does. I know of a genuine 911R that got painted black. It’s gorgeous. Please no emails asking me to give up that info.
The black 911 featured in this month’s Werk Crew calendar belongs to Brian Lum. He lives in Arizona. Forget which city but I think it’s the hot one. I told Brian I get first dibs on that car should he decide to sell. I thoroughly enjoy hanging out with Brian at the events. Anytime I feel a little tapped in the funds department I go find Brian and Terry for lunch or dinner. They always know the good and cheap places to eat and I stare at their Rolexes during the entire meal. My freakin’ heroes.
I asked Brian to send me a note about his car after he got done polishing his Rolex. This is what he had to say:
The car is a 1967 911 . Bought by Duane Spenser in 2001 and sold to William Pringle of (classic and speed parts). Bought car not running in July 2009. Got on the road in October of 2009. Engine is original number matching but was rebuilt with 2.2 E piston and cyl. and E cams. engine rebuilt by Roger Bursch in the 80’s. I have installed 40 PMO’s and recently MSD ignition. I lowered car and upgraded front brakes with bigger calipers and ventilated rotors. Seats are ST from TRE. Deep 6 Fuchs and MK muffler. Original Bahama Yellow, repainted black I think in the 80’s.
Love the car and try to drive it everyday.
