My first Air Cooled 911 Porsche

A long, long time ago I got my first taste of a Air Cooled Porsche 1972 911T. I think at the time the 911T was like the base model. Nothing special no Fuch’s but Cookie cutters wheels instead. Geez I don’t even remember if it was a 4 or 5 speed it didn’t matter. I do remember the engine sound!!! That distinct MFI working those valves and exhaust notes. I also remember the loud, I mean very load backfire when decelerating. I bet I scared the s**t out people on the side of me checking me out. LOL Yeah they would jam on there brakes when it backfired… HAHAHAHA. It’s been a while since I got to hear one of those cars roaring past me. The memories of owning and driving it will always be with me. Long live the AIR COOLED PORSCHE!

  1. This thing is fantastic, Brian. The beginning of a life long love affair, I suppose?

  2. Cheers, Brian. Wonderful car. Was it silver or white?

  3. I guess this is why we love cars. They preserve all these nice memories!

  4. Viva la Porsche!
    Such a pleasure reading this, Brian.
    Regards from Italia.

  5. This body was so good-looking that, with all respect to later incarnations of the 911, they should make it again! W-ooo-n-der-ful

    • Yes, after visiting the Peterson Automotive Museum today, I agree with you 1000%. I just love the shape, style and sound! Beautiful car!

      • You wouldn’t believe how tiny it is compared to today‘s cars.

  6. Very nice in deed. My mom had an Ölklappe and it’s fair to say that I grew up in it.
