By mid-afternoon, Tim and I felt we had pretty much cycled the whole show enough. We did a few more laps around the show just to scope things out…maybe find some hidden treasures, and visited some local owners and also checked out the model booth later on.
Loved this older off-white 911 Carrera. Porsche’s are really hard to ID by year because…well…they all look the same. But I want to say its a 78+ just because of the tail light design. The kit and aero makes it even harder to tell…
I thought this was cool, mainly because you’d only see it on a Porsche or a similar car with wide enough fenders.
My ideal engine bay. Looks like it’s out of a Spoon catalog. Even has the Del Sol air cleaner tube for the B16A, rather than trying to shove the 58mm SOHC one on the bigger B-series throttle. It does need an LS/TypeR throttle though to fix the loop-back cable…
One of my favorite cars at EAF was this battleship gray EG6. So many subtle things that made this car great. The low-profile aero on the hood and fenders, the molded-in ducts through the fog-light holes, a 5-lug conversion with fitted Spoon brake calipers, and I just loved the dump-tube exhaust and bare interior.
I’ll wrap up part three there. I will post the final part this weekend. Stay tuned and thanks for reading! Meanwhile…here are a couple shots we grabbed of Raichelle Viado at the NOS model booth…
