Twisted or Twister? 1971 Porsche 911 Olds V8

The original Porsche 911 has seen incredible price appreciation in the past decade, to the point that you've got to own a software company or be a rap star to own one of these things and the worst part is that even the cleanest museum quality version is dangerously slow in the modern world of minivans that hit 60 mph in 5 seconds and family sedans with 700 horsepower.  But you can fix that with a simple injection of V8 power from an Oldsmobile Toronado.  Find this 1971 Porsche 911 Olds V8 offered for $12,000 in Long Beach, CA via craigslist. Tip from Lars.

  1. Sometimes, after you've seen something executed really well , you become less tolerant of subsequent attempts that miss that mark.

  2. Well that's one way of getting fresh air to the engine.

  3. $12k...?! If the interior/exterior was at least clean and it had a late model, fuel injected crate motor, maybe.... and rear window would be kinda nice too. Details.

  4. Oldsmobile Toronado engine and a manual transmission ?

    I assume that this means something like you have to control the valves on the slushbox by hand, but if a manual bent trany existed I would love to know the details.
