I am constantly accused of only writing of Italian cars – how unfair.
Some things are truly GREAT and the Porsche 917 is right up there, for a lot of reasons.
As a ‘warm up’ for a couple of racing posts, how about this. Quality always shines through and the engineering for the 917 screams (literally) all that and more.
I too have gone through the anxiety of the first start after a rebuild and used gallons of Bradex (will start anything provided you can afford it!) but into 12 cylinders. Wow – I wonder how many cans they used.
That I could be so faultless after 30 years in retirement!!
Yours, diablog, firin’ up
