Jim, you could start a non profit and IF you thought it the way to go, offers +' & -'. can't offer much from ME or FL but will watch craigs list in those areas if that is any help.

BTW, left you a message, I have been stacking up some early stuff you my want, holding off on listing it till I talk with you.

Found the other side of the early bumper cover "underliner" part and forgot I had some of th early "non-carpeted" tool kit covers...and more.

Congrats on the scrore, and for taking on this type of "project"!!

Cheers,

Dave
DR,
I got your message, sir. I know, I'm it.... will call soon.
Thank you very much for thinking of me and saving those parts. Thanks for the great deal on the early WUR! I may need two of those now...

The project's home base will most likely travel to country to where is makes the most sense. My guess is it will not have a home base in the physical sense.
More of a travelling restoration.

Very worthwhile project.
Thanks Tass! As always, you are a class act. Will keep you posted.

Geographically and spare time challenged but would be willing to contribute financially.

You are welcome and thanks for the support!

BTW, think about penciling in Sharks in the Mountains 2012 for an appearance with the car...we could let everyone take turns loosening and tightening the lug nuts (or something simple, just tossing that quick thought out), or wiping the underneath etc. so they can say they worked on it too!!

All the best,

Dave

Jim worked hard on this rescue.

The picture that should have been taken on Sat:
Jim, no shirt, crawling under the UHaul trailer at the carwash, pressure washing underneath.

The second picture:
Me, using the carwash pressure hose (from a safe distance) on Jim before he got into the Surburban. Really happened.

^^^^
If you ever wondered how much it costs to pressure wash a human?

The answer is 2 Quarters.

But did you get the quick wax also?

Great find though! I wish I lived closer so as to lend a hand on the car

Jim I can volunteer to provide limited legal guidance and, of course, thoughts and opinions on the car itself from my perspective as a fellow OB guy.

As to the legal issues, just some high level thoughts - the suggestion above about a charitable status for achieving deductions on any money (or time) donations is a good one. This project would probably qualify, under an educational purpose and/or a historic preservation purrpose. However, some things would likely need to be done first.

For instance, a charitable entity under appropriate state law may need to be created, with the stated purpose of the entity clear - to educate people about and provide historical preservation to this special car. I believe the title to the car itself may need to be transfered to this new entity (again, some of this will depend on state law, and I don't know what state will apply). The entity will need officers and/or directors (although probably not necessary for them to be local). Those people will have a fiduciary duty to keep good records, file returns, and so forth. A TIN will need to be obtained, tax forms filed (depending on amounts to be raised), and there are requirements to acknowledge receipt of donations that will need to occur on a regular basis - lots of little administrative things like that.

In addition, since the efforts surrounding this car will frequently involve using the Porsche name, including fundraising or sponsorship efforts, the Porsche people will likely want to approve use of their trademarks for this purpose - in other words, they may want to sign-off on this project (and a good way to initiate a discussion with them about some sponsorship $$). It would be worth running it up the flag-pole and having something for the file in case they later raise a stink.

Other random thoughts would be to get the various 928 vendors to sponsor time/$/materials, setting different levels - gold/silver/bronze. Same for regular folks like us too. Again, good records will need to be kept.

Anyway, those are just a few random thoughts about this potential effort. So, think about this and we can talk if you want in more detail (you have my #).

Is there any concern that these cars might not have been legally imported?

Far out, Jim! You're like the Indiana Jones of the 928 world...discovering lost time machines that were once feared as gone for good. Looking forward to watching the restoration of this irreplaceable piece of history.

Possibly, but if it was titled, and it sounds like it was, then that is not an issue.

Just Friggen amazing. I wish I lived closer as I would love to go through that CIS system A to Z and get it running perfectly for ya. Not in the cards, though. If you really have a CIS disaster, another choice might be to take your CIS system off the car and send to to someone with a running CIS car who knows the system. They could get the system working on thier car and then send it back to you. There would still be a bunch of tuning on your end after, but it might make a better start.
