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.

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.
