Nah, I sold it for $300

It was one of the worst cars I had owned (the worst was a 1960 Alpha convertible - like the one in La Dolce Vita). The Porsche would skate (aquaplane) in a second - weight allocation was bad. It was too light in front, I had to put sand bags in the front trunk, especially in icy conditions. It was really a VW except for the body shell and a larger block bored to 1000cc.

Thanks for confirming so eloquently, if unintentionally, what I said about the male of the species' desire to relive old, successful hunts, even if the end result was more gristle than meat. :)
And for the other hunters in the tribe to be jealous of the results none the less when painted on the cave walls years later. :D :D
