The Nuts have just closed the deal,
and they're loading the car onto the trailer they bought at the same time.
You can see the spare transmission that came in the deal strapped to the
front of the trailer. In the background you can see the PO's
911 car for
Porsche Club of
America (PCA) competition.
Leaving Columbia under tow (left), and resting peacefully in its new home at
“Righty's” house (right).
If you look closely, over the top of the tires in the back, you can see a
little of the main roll cage hoop, stern braces, and triangulation braces.
This car has a nice cage, and that's one of the reasons
The Nuts bought it. The spare set of
wheels that came in the deal are in the back of the car. It also came with
a set of stock steel wheels mounted with
Dirt Stockers as rain tires.
These photos give you a better look at the cockpit and the side intrusion
portions of the cage. The bracing on the drivers side door makes
The Nuts' hearts warm. The passenger side is
empty, and they're going to put in a seat and harness for instructors.
The engine bay from each side. The
air cleaner and strut tower brace are easily visible. The
“Red Hot” plug wires are pretty obvious, too. The bay seems
pretty empty after working on Lefty's late-model Mustang or Righty's Focus
The pilot's view of the cockpit. The steering wheel (not shown) is a
Momo. The stereo has been
replaced with a variety of gauges and a big no oil pressure warning
light. The cross beams of the cage are nice, but Lefty would rather have
them at the base of the windshield instead of right above his knees. Above
the frame of the picture is a big four-section mirror, which is good,
because visibility out the sides is not as good as it could be. The next
step is to get the pedals and shifter and all that stuff adjusted to suit
The Nuts very quickly put on stickers for
Motorsports (GRM) magazine. One for
is probably already on there. The photos were taken a couple of days before
this text was written. Righty is also going to remove the big numbers so we
number panels on. We're hoping to save the blue stripes and most of the
other graphics, but some of the ones on top of the stripes are going to go,
so the stripes are in danger.
