  1. If you were in the market for a Porsche, what would you get?

    Off Topic Discussions
    I second the 3.0 911sc choice. I had an '83 coupe and I just loved that car. However, if you are looking for speed and handling for FAR less than $30k I would find an '87-'89 944 turbo or ideally an '89 944 turbo S. One of the fastest, best handling cars you can find for around $15k last time...
  2. Pittsburgh Vintage Gran Prix

    Off Topic Discussions
    My sons and I were at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix on Saturday (7-18) and saw some great cars. I'm posting a picture of my two sons in front of a very nice roadster that was in the American car field. For those of you who have never been to this event, it is truly one of the best events...
  3. Are we looking at the end of F1?

    FIA can run at Indy....they did a 6 car race there already that I paid mucho $$$ to see. Bernie and Max sure did ruin the greatest sport in the world. I'd say hand Max over to bunch of prison guards......but he'd enjoy himself too much. F1 without Ferrai? No way!
  4. What to do in Vegas?

    Off Topic Discussions
    It was 2-3 hours to get there if I remember right. Leave very early because it gets very busy. We saw Phantom of the Opera at the Venitian....it was the best production I had ever seen of that musical. I would highly recommend it
  5. What to do in Vegas?

    Last time my wife and I went (about 2 years ago) we took a trip to the West rim of the Grand Canyon. It was a real adventure getting there (only access is a dirt road) but it was well worth the trip. You drive over the Hoover Dam to get there and back. They had just opened the glass bottom...

    I think that the Pens will win in a close game. If I had to guess, I'd pick Malkin to score the game winner and seal the MVP. For all of the Detroit faithful in this thread, if your team does end up winning....we could always talk about the Super Bowl ;)
  7. What's a fair price for a 351 Cleveland

    Ford Small Block Engine
    Thanks for the advice guys. I'm going to look for a Windsor now
  8. What's a fair price for a 351 Cleveland

    Ford Small Block Engine
    I came across a nice fellow selling a couple of Cougar parts cars. He has a 351 Cleveland which is out of a junk Cougar and hasn't run in 18 years. Does anybody have an opinion as to what a fair price would be for this? Also, I am looking to rebuild/build an engine with my sons and put into a...

    There's your win! The Pens looked pretty good last night IMHO. GAME 4 should be a good one!

    Hey now, I was at game 5 last year....it ain't over till the fat lady sings. I'll never forget how they had the cup all polished and ready to go.....and the Pens tied it up and won in 3 ots

    Turboguy, we were in the lower part of the upper bowl right behind the net where Detroit shot twice. We will be watching games 3 & 4 on tv.....tickets here are just too expensive when you have to buy 6 at a time. I think the Pens will come back. They were down 2-0 to Washington, too. Detroit...

    The wife and I along with our 4 kids are going to Detroit tomorrow for game 1. It's amazing but, tickets and a hotel in Detroit is still waaaaaaaay cheaper than black market tickets here (at home in Pittsburgh). Hey Turboguy, how'd you like the 'Burg? You saw a good game, eh? GO PENS!!!!
  13. 1984 -1989 Porsche 911

    Other Cars
    Steven, you hit the nail on the head with the negatives for an '84 911, but there are quite a bit of positives. I had a black '83 911sc Coupe with the whales tail and all the negatives aside, I loved it. You certainly get a lot of looks in a 911 (at least in Pittsburgh!) and the overall...
  14. Went to Carlise on Friday - now I'm really confused

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Wow, thanks for all of the input guys. I did add my city and Sate to my profile. I am just East of Pittsburgh, PA. I have restored several cars and actually won an AACA first junior years ago. Maybe that's what's holding me back just remembering the endless mess of restoring a Western PA rust...

    Steve, We did see your car...very, very nice, by the way! We were looking for you, but no one was around the car. Thanks for the offer, I might just take you up on that. Pete

    My older son and I went to the Carlise Kit and Import show on Friday. I had pretty much made up my mind that we were buying a FFR Mk 3.1 as a project for my 2 sons and I but wanted to see the car in person. The car was gorgeous but it was quite tight when I sat in it (I'm 6' even with short...
  17. Carslile kit car show 5-14,15,16.

    Factory Five Roadsters
    My son and I will be there on Friday. It's his first trip to Carlise and my first in over 10 years. We are really looking forward to it.
  18. If you had to do it again!

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Does anyone know what the difference in price is between the complete kit and a base kit with comparable components from Breeze, Levy or Forte's? I keep going back and forth between the complete kit and a base non-donor myself and am glad for everyones opinion on this.
  19. Collecting a debt

    You are right, Mike. A Mechanic's Lien, at least here in PA, deals with real estate only and not personal property like cars.
  20. Anyone watching BBC America right now...

    Top Gear is the only show I look forward to. It is the best on the tube IMHO
