Clear copy of a blank kardex

#1 Post by Jerry Garwick » Mon Jan 27, 2020 3:13 pm

I have searched for such a clear copy of a blank kardex from the early 1950's I have a difficult time reading all of the German captions on current copies that I have seen. They all seem to be copies of copies and a bit muddled. Does anyone out there have such a thing?

Is there a legal use for a blank Kardex? It would be very easy to misuse.

Now, why would anyone want a blank Kardex?????? There are plenty of perfectly readable copies out there.
(Maybe enter your own car's info, but leave off the large slash across the face of the Kardex and then tell Porsche that it's still in warranty.......

I'm reminded of a "unique" COA that the late, great Ken Daugherty had on his "C" coupe at an East Coast Holiday- included were power windows, tilt steering and I think electric banana!

I can think of no legitimate use for a blank kardex, even if the intent were only to copy the information, word for word, from a Porsche-supplied original onto the blank one just to make the wording more legible. Or are we now going to 'restore' kardexes too?

I can only add my support for the above comments; any attempt at re-numbering or changing documentation is always an attempt at deception and is fraudulent. I hope Jerry had no such intent in mind.

You ain't alone. I did get an order from Ken fils this week; hope he's keeping that A sedan in running shape.

This one is pretty clear. I downloaded it as an example from some unknown thread.
