Now if the red Porsche was depicted to be a 1976 912E, they literally would be sharing the same engine.
I must lack imagination, because I have never in my life thought about doing this. But I love it.
Best Microbus side art work ever.
Good looking Kombi
I saw something like that…it was the shop that wound up owning my (dead) Yugo. A repair shop in Grand Junction, Colorado…they had a flat-front Toyota van, the first generation; and using the wheels as a starting point, they painted a Porsche 911 on the side. Put their logo above it.
It was in 1989, I saw that van and was dealing with that shop. Can’t remember the name; Car and Driver ran a photo of it in their news blurb section about the same time.
Just did a web search. It’s not up there and all the shops presently open in Grand Junction, none of them ring with me. Maybe an old C/D reader will remember and scan?
I bought a non-running ’71 Campmobile back in the late ’80s (points had closed up – easy to fix once I figured that out), and stripped the interior, using it as a pseudo-pickup for a few years off and on. Rebuilt the engine, and it became my daily for another five or so. My college buddies and I made a spoof of the movie “The Memphis Belle,” which is where the paint job came from (we even had dummy .50 cal. machine guns). It was a sad day when she died…
A perfect example of positive thinking…
