Nice looking car, and those are impressive stats, funny when you think about how one of todays 4 door "family sedans" will run circles around the old big block vette's of the 70's era. I used to have all the R&T car stats memorized when I was in high school and IIRC the 454 vette's clocked 0-60 in 7.2 and the 911 of the day was around 6.6, both would be left behind by your car.

I haven't been able to afford my MLC car yet, have to unload the better 1/2's 95 gas guzzling LS Discovery and get her something more economical first. I'm hoping one of these years to find a 73 or newer 914-4 or an earlier 914-6, but a 70's era 911 would be nice too. One day I'd also like to pick up a vintage Model-T as well.
