I'm getting a headache trying to look at that picture... where did you source that gas tank? And what size is it??
Just curious why you'd want that big a tank- a lot of extra weight when full- does it get that bad a mileage??

Default Brutus

This is really neat to see this car, my grandfather was the original owner and had it until he passed away I think in the late 80's. Anyways I know from what my mom, aunt and uncle have said is the following; my grandfather ordered it directly from Dr. Porsche under the designation of brutus and that it differed (in engine size) from the other 916's produced. My mom's side had the car shipped from germany where they lived at the time, and it shipped to Florida where it sat in a shipping yard, where it was damaged by the salt in the air. It was then sold because my mom's side needed the money and we mostly lost track of the car until recently. My mom has told countless stories of them flying down the autobahn in Brutus, and whenever our family gets together and Brutus comes up my mom and her siblings regret ever having to sell it. So I thank you for posting these pictures because it is very reassuring to see Brutus in such caring hands!

I am sure that the current owners Matt and Steve would love to speak with you about the car and your and your moms memories.
