Status - Road going SOB.

Background Story - Once, in a place far far away called Greenhithe, sitting in a warm dry little garage, there was a little woe begotten Porker. This little Porker was a willing wee thing, but her two previous owners were prize dickheads who knew nothing of good Porker responsibilities, and thought that putting big fat 11” wide RSR style 3 pce Fuchs trotters on the back and jacking up the rear haunches to counter the consequent destruction of the wheel arch lips was cool. One of them even thought that putting huge IDA (competition only type) Webers on would make it go faster. The little Porker just overfueled to heck , and sputtered and ran like a bag of assholes at a Labour Party conference. One day the by-this-time-desperate owner advertised it on TradeMe and everyone got excited that such a lovely beastie was available. Porkie got deal after deal after deal that fell through. Porkies future New Daddy even got outbid on the driveway when he went to actually buy it. But this was in the darkest days of the Cullen fuelled International Monetary Collapse. Money promised was not money presented. Porkers keeper became frantic, and rang it’s soon to be New Daddy and said “how much ya got?” Well, a deal was struck, and gold ducats were presented.Now… a problem existed. New Porkie Daddy wasn’t too worried about the motor not running right, or the carbs not float balancing or the manked wheel arches or the rusty front cross assembly and doors,  or the slack linkages or the knackered clutch or the woeful brake and suspension setup or the odd wheels or the Hawarira patent clutch lever assembly. Oh no, these were all to be fixed.

Mere bagatelles in fact!

Ohhhh no; the real problem was …. WIFEY. You see, New Porkie Daddy has a wonderful she-wolf partner. A veritable Warrior Princess, tall, fast and agile and very strong. Like Xena but much much more dangerous when annoyed. And yet another classic car turning up was about as annoying as anything could be.

Well, annoying to her anyways, but who’s to know eh?

Soooooo….

Lil Porkie was surreptitiously slithered up to Dave Taylors workshop while New Porkie Daddy figured out how to “break the news” without actually being “broken” himself. New Porkie Daddy thought a wee jaunt to Thailand would be wonderful where on some romantic beach in the heaven that is the paradise of Koh Tao, floating like a feather in the limpid Gulf of Thailand, lit by bamboos oil lanterns and the glow of ever lasting love, somehow the conversation could fall upon the subject of beautiful old classic Porsches and the great philosophical and economic mores of their ownership and restoration.He had the motive. He had the patter worked out. He had the rationale and the counter points. But Thailand was heaven and the hell it would become was simply not worth contemplating. The Bali bombings had just occurred, and Thailand didn’t need a repeat. Nothing was said.New Porkie Daddy flew back knowing this might be the last week of his life. Alas twas not to be, as bodywork repairs to the wheel arches beckoned. By magic Lil Porkie transcended the distance from Daves Whangaparoa Cave to the Den of Motorbody Magic that is Professional Autobodies in Henderson. There the most wicked elves performed the most wicked wheel arch reconstruction and metallic paint matching, and they are highly recommended.The time of reckoning had come. Lil Porkie had no place to go …except…. Hommmmme !Mt Albert became, for some weeks, Mount Doom. The Eye of the Wrath of the Ring flamed hot and cold all at once. Storms gathered and broke hell on the earth. and the pestilence of the anger of She Who Must Be Obeyed reigned terror and threats of divorce upon the head of Porkies New Daddy.But that was OK, coz she finally got sore tonsils, and I got to keep the car. Icepacks helped the bruising.Then the work started… all of the aforementioned things and a whole lot of other stuff I can’t even think of. All new steel door skins, cross frames etc etc etc. Rebuilt the Webers, everything peripheral to the motor etc etc etc etc. Mark Cate at Sulphur Point Auto Repairs needs special mention, as does Stewart at AeroAutomotive at Airport Oaks. She’s now a pearl. Not a concourse car, but neither do I want one. She’s a road user/ roadburner in the true Porschaholic tradition, and it only produces enough CO2 to keep Greenpeace in business. Not a drop more.
