"Dirty Penny" is one of my favorite 911's. One reason is its "Cocoa Brown" metallic brown paint. This color doesn't look great on most cars--including my own Mazda RX-7. But it works on the subtle curves of the 911. Another reason I like "Dirty Penny" is because it's the perfect compromise between a track-day car and a street car: truly dual purpose.
A partial listing of the specifications of this Pelican Parts build: some light-weight body parts on a 1978 911 SC, stripped interior, a "built" 3.2 short-stroke engine driving through a a 915 gearbox with special ratios to 15 X 9 rear wheels (15 X 7 fronts).
