If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Guard Red 1987 Turbo Look (ORIGINAL) M-491 911 Convertible Porsche Carrera is a 3.2 Liter flat six cylinder. The Porsche is immaculate with a few classy after market upgrades and superb servicing. The front spoiler is a racing Porsche 911 spoiler with custom round 3.5 Angel Eye fog lights. The headlights are projectors with the headlight rings paint to match the car. The rear end has European Taillights that are new. The third brake light is new and color matched to enhanced the whale tail. The Porsche alloy wheels are 8's & 9 inch deep, and have been detailed with a high polished finish, with the inside to color match the car. The rims are seating on brand new tire rubber, Yokohama's. The interior is in new black leather reupholstered, and new black floor carpet with new Porsche floor mats. The front and passenger seat belts are replaced with custom red seat belts. There is a little carbon fiber on the glove compartment box and just a touch more running along the bottom of the dash to add a classy feel. The stereo is after market with new rear speakers. The feel of racing is aligned with the six piece Rennline perorated petal set and upper and lower plates, that's matching the same look for the passenger floor board. The same look was present for the door handle and locking mechanism.
The Porsche original black canvas was used for the new replacement convertible electric top. The service and maintenance performed on this Turbo Look M-491 Porsche 911, new clutch, pressure plate, tune up with valve adjustment, new throw-out bearing and fork, and oil change. All new oil lines have been replaced from the rear to the oil cooler. While the engine was out, changed all seals that were hard, old or leaking. The car has been smog for California with a brand new catalytic converter.
The car runs cooler, I changed the oil temperature sensor, it now comes on at 191 degrees. Therefore, the temperature gauge now gets only a little above the half mark and the oil cooling fan comes on to cool off the oil. There is a dual after market exhaust system that sounds awesome and allow the flat six to open up and breath with plenty of horses rearing you in your seat.
There is a red car cover for inside the garage that breaths for the paint, however, the car cover can't be used for outside elements, like wet or damp situations. There is also a black Tourneau Cover that covers the new convertible top. It's a custom cover that allows the passenger side to cover all the way to the front dash. If the Porsche is sitting to long in the weather elements, you can cover it up and protect the inside of the seats and dash as well!
Hope you enjoyed all the fantastic upgrades and care with this awesome Porsche 911 Carrera!
