Look at its silly exhaust system! Thanks, emissions regs. Someday that'll get replaced and gain a bunch of horseys, but the system is pricey. It stays stock for now.

What "pricey" exhaust system are you looking at? I might know a guy...

And what were you referring to about something hiding in the background? Something besides the AC compressor?

Eventually SSIs and a '74 muffler would make nice upgrades. If you know a guy.

What's ironic about this thread is Woody's thread on his 911 targa low-buck resto. You guys really need to feature him if this project goes into the mag, just my .02...

Yep and, no, we're not stealing its nose. It is a perfectly restored, totally disassembled '73 tub, though.
