Because i'm a Vanagon guy and more than 1 Porsche motor has found its way into VW's, i've long had a soft place for Porsche.

The Porsche guru here i apprenticed with for a few months (in the Wilderness YearsTM) was all into 914's. I cut my wrench-teeth on breaking 914's down all day long. Sandblasting a 356, etc. Golden times.

But on the shelves this guy had 3 6-cyl Porsche boxer engines on pallets. I'd just gawk at these motors every time i walked past them in the shop. Art gathering dust.

(NB: i thought that guy'd be dead by now-- i worked for him in 1995 and he was rough then. Rolled past his place over xmas break and he's still there, with a new generation of Rottweilers guarding the Yard)

I make a motion that MiniTrailWest get down here to visit soon.
