Unloaded a trailer full of stuff today, and found some weird stuff.

1. Factory tire chains, because we all drive our 911's through the Donner Pass, right?
2. Factory Industrial drive belts.

Never a dull moment.

We were in South Texas (that is anywhere south of the Dallas/Tarrant county line) at an individual that was doing restoration. We left everything there!

Adam, did you find any PORSCHE whips to go with the chains? Sorry, I had to.

Picked up a car last week and the guy threw in a motor. He said, "That could be welded"
I guess....

There was a speedster for sale here a few years back. A real bucket. I think Jim Kellogg ended up with the car. I recall he had to weld up a temporary front end under it to even extract it from the barn/shed. It had a full bench seat.

Nice find Adam!

Good thing the hole is at the top, you can just leave it there and use it to add oil
