Resources for Older 911 Porsches - Links & Specific Forum Post Links

Pelican    The Best 911 Tech Resource Rennlist    Good 911 Forum Impactbumpers.com  SC & Carrera Site

 

Here are general resources links & links to some forum threads that I have bookmarked for one reason or another. Before you start whining that the search feature works well on these forums & why do I need this, remember that you always have to wade through countless posts before you find the gems. These are my gems along with a few misc links. Of course, it's skewed towards my car - a 3.2 Motronics G-50 Carrera. Make your own list if you don't like them. You are welcome to contribute good links. 

For those that do not know, the Pelican Parts Technical BBS is hosted by . . . Pelican Parts, a Porsche & BMW parts supplier in Los Angeles. This forum is THE FORUM for those that want to work on their older 911. Their parts business funds the forum, so if you use it, throw Wayne some of your business to support it. Rennlist is member-supported & a long-time hangout for Porsche guys. More conservative & polite (and quieter) than Pelican but a lot of knowledge in it. Free Web pages for members too, which is why you're reading this here. Don't be a cheap bastard & become a member.  Impactbumpers.com is a site from the UK. Aimed at the Impact Bumper 911s. A good bunch although they're always jabbering about their Club Sports & tyres & all their damn steering wheels are on the wrong side of the dash! What's up with that, mate? Awful bloody dangerous I would think.

                 Note:  I didn't include links from/about Body Work or Engines Rebuilding or 915 Tranny Rebuilding . . .
