Up for sale are my ultra rare never been mounted Work Ewing III's in 5x108 with +40 ET. There are no scratches anywhere on these wheels, no curbing, no nuttin. Wheels come with center covers, rare locking hex nuts, center caps, 1 extra center cap, and 5 optional hex nut spacers. Currently trying to find the key for the locking hex nuts, i put it in a "safe place", I just have to remember where that place is.:rofl::grrr: These are 3pc wheels that have been welded together making them 1 pc wheels. All Work Ewings were done this way. The center is sandwhich mounted. The lips and barrells can be cut off and they can up-sized to 17" wheels. These are very rare wheels in the common bolt patterns, and unicorn wheels in our 5x108 bolt pattern. Asking $1k for the wheels plus shipping. Shipping should be around $50-75 CONUS. They are boxed up and ready to go, minus the missing key which I'll find. When I got the wheels, there was one twist on center cap missing. I searched for months and was not able to find a matching cap, but was able to find a twist on cap that was close. Paid $100 for the cap.., they're quite rare.

Keep the SB 24, ditch the rest. You can get a F100 for $100. The SB22 is pretty much useless (used to own one..) The SB24 can at least be used off camera so it's good for something. The 35-70 3.5 can go right in the trash can, or right back up ebay where it will likely not sell because its a cheap kit lens. If I were you I'd really focus on buying quality glass, there is a lot of great glass that can be had for "cheap" ("" because cheap is a relative term that varies depending on which lens you're talking about). Start buying fixed focal length lenses, you can get some very sharp lenses for cheap that way. Stick to nikon branded stuff too. Don't buy old shit quantary, sigma, tamaron, etc primes from the 80's and 90's.
I use axle straps front and rear. In the front I typically throw the straps around the lower control arms and crisscross like shown above in fact, when using axle straps, always tow like Matt has pictured above.
Its got the 3.0L. Plan is, ditch the wing, rebarrel my work Ewing iiis to 17" and redrill them 5x130, install my sparco evoiis, swap rando momo wheel for a proto tipo, install DAS roll bar, and then IROC bumpers. POSSIBLY gusset rear shock towers and do a DIY coilover conversion.
Thanks Mike! It took me a couple weeks to make mind up, I had my heart set on a 964. After talking to a few buddies that own Porsche shops, they all said I was stupid for not buying it and my fears were unwarranted. Did some research and figured I could make it into something I really love.
So 3.0 SC cars are kind of the red headed step child of the air cool 911 market, slightly better than the 2.7.. However #1 cars are now trading hands in the mid 40s. Number 2 cars in the high 30s low 40s and #3 cars in the high 20s to mid 30s. My car id say is a low grade 2 car maybe a 3 depending on who you talk to. It's clean, has a few panels re sprayed, momo steering, ssi headers, dual in and dual out m and k muffler, documented $20k rebuild on the engine, new clutch and flywheel, original Fuchs with brand new re11s, and a fairly clean interior. I paid well under $25k for the car and feel like I stole it at that price. Owner paid under $15k for his dad's rare optioned 964 so he wasn't concerned about making a ton of money on the car and it was a friend of a friend kind of deal too. At any rate I'm very excited. I've been looking for a long time.
