67 911 Speedster



Stan Townes built this Custom 911 back in the late 60's. He used a rolled over 67- 911 wreck he bought for $1500.00. The car debuted at the Oakland Roadster Show in 1971 were it received  Gold!  He got the lines right. The only change I would have made is to the rear wheel arch , by lowering  it over the wheel a bit as in the original. The rear quarter panel looks a little to much like a AC Cobra.

Happy Birthday to me!

It was hard to keep a lid on this
Back in Oct I get a call from a club member and it goes something like this.
"Hi, Ben this is Ron.  Is you car together & running?"
-Yea
" Good, the reason is a Friend needs a blue car for a VW photo shoot, I'll pass along your info to him & he'll be in touch"
-OK cool
A few days later the guy calls gives me the shoot info. At the shoot the guy gives me the concept info and I'm thinking this is pretty cool. My car is gonna be in a real VW print ad. Well at the end of the day he says the ads will be out around Feb.  Thanks Sacha, it truly was my pleasure being a part of your project. 
These are a few iPhone pics I took.

Thanks again to Sacha & also to Nick Meek the photographer and the crew.
That's a nice classic touch on the front fenders..round headlights.
