Sad Sack 911

#1 Post by Bob Forman » Tue Jun 12, 2018 11:54 am

This was off-loaded from a flatbed yesterday and dropped in the parking lot of a not-so-upscale apartment building in town. At one time in its life it was the pride of a PO. Odds on how long it will remain? Doesn't appear to have a motor.

That's a future Manhatten trophy winner.

Are they bringing that back? If not it's a sure fire contender in the preservation class!

Could be a poor and sad 912 that was "updated". Folks did some awful things during the dark period.

Could be a 912E from '76. It disappeared a few days later. It had a whale tail most likely of dubious origin. I'll report back if it shows up again.
