Actually you're right, my all time love would be a 72 S. but they have accelerated past my bank balance long ago

Nice write up, and more 50-year 911 photos here.

I would love an air-cooled Porsche but I will never go back to the Scottsdale dealer again. Ever. Are there any good mechanics in the valley that can work on the older cars? I thought I read somewhere that some parts were only available to dealers.

Most Porsche dealers are not a great choice for the air-cooled cars. I would guess there are several great independent Porsche shops around Phoenix/Scottsdale that specialize in air-cooled cars.

We are selling our sailboat to get a bigger one for bluewater cruising and liveaboard. After we get the boat I have around 1 year till retirement and might get another P-car to play with for a year or 2. I will check out some Porsche forums for local recommendations.

If the dealers are selling air cooled cars, they are going to be non-wrecked, non rusty, maintained, shiny paint, lower mile examples, typically at premium prices. Mine was everything but premium priced that I found at my local dealer, 5 miles from work.
