Correct about the early Porsches. I had a 72 911S with the 165+ hp motor back in the mid 80's. Great lightweight super rocket with the ducktail spoiler and 16 inch rims. Beautiful white and black combo with black interior. No back seat since is was a street legal road racer. I bought it while I was stationed at US SOCOM, Macdill AFB. The officer I bought it from had bought it in Germany and brought it back to Tampa. It had 23,000 miles on it. He could not keep it running for more than 2-3 min. I paid him $3200.00 and I had to remove the motor to replace some gaskets, rebuild the carbs and the clutch setup. That was a wicked ride and it was in mint shape. I kept it for 10 years and sold it to a vintage racer from Miami. I got $15,900 cash for it. I only let it go to buy our second house. I sold my 87 'Vette at the same time frame so our new house payments would only be about $600 a month. I still miss those cars!!!!!! But....I love our home and property.......OK, I'm questioning your sanity, Robert... (jk, I haven't even met your wife.)
First off, that must be one Helluva ring.
Secondly, what year was the Porsche? An early 1970 911S is sought after, more than the E, T, or the L. And if it's in good condition, it can be had for anywhere from 15K to 30K.
Pics of any of these?
As far as my best sale?
Best thing I ever bought for $150 was a set of 33x12.50x15 Pro Comps with 80% tread on shiny new 15x10 Rockcrawlers. Oh, and the 5th fullsize spare was perfect and had never seen pavement.
Best thing I ever sold: nothing really. Sold a POS Altima once for $600, but that's nothing special.
