During the course of time we owned too many Porsche’s to count, but please enjoy the photo journey of some we kept photos of.  We thought it would be fun to show how some were repaired painted or parted out,  it in the early years it all began in Ricks parents home garage!

 

Porsche’s often arrive from all over the world by truck these days into a more modern facility.

 

1982 911Sc Red with rebuilt engine we owned a few times now, most recently in 2018

Not one of the Porsche’s we like to know the story of, some are fun stories and others not so nice.  The cars often tell us their story or hold secrets, sometimes we find somethjng very personal and try to find the owner to return it to them.  Some owners send us lots of details on their Potsches like the thoracic surgeon who owned one of our America Roadsters and gave us his European delivery documents.

This 1989 Coupe arrived from California over the cab of a big rig.

1988 Carrera Felsen Green Metallic, affectionately  known as “Felsen”.  We saved Felsen who had some water damage from Hurricane Sandy.  Felsen was sold by us several times to new clients and old friends in Pa and in New York.  In August of 2018 Felsens last owner purchased a 993 cabriolet from us and Felsens adventures began again, it moved to San Francisco to live with another friend. Felsens ride on a big rig was an adventure of its own to say the least thanks to an errant lady trucker who abandoned her truck and Felsen in Arizona, but Felsen once again survived and arrived unscathed except for some oil dropped on the trunk.

1982 911SC we owned twice now

 

In the last thirty plus years, hundreds of Porsche 911s have passed through our hands.

Some were spectacular all-original cars. Others were crashed/flood damaged/burnt ones that we parted out and still live on our parts bins on shelves.

We are proud to have sold many as rebuildable salvage, and more than a few we rebuilt and are glad we saved.
