    Me too. I think a better comparison would be with one of the early IROC camaros which were modified street cars and not race chassis.

    Well, if strictly from a Dollars & Cent's view, it's the Porsche all day long, 24/7. They sell for $ Half a Million PLUS. Porsche made 15, raced 12/13. I owned one of the spares ( Serial #350) about 15 years ago. Almost all the Porsche IROCs were converted to IMSA race cars ( RSRs & 934s). Mine was used and abused, when I got it, the Front Bodywork was gone ( I know what car it went to - Mid-Ohio accident), No Drivetrain, etc, just a Factory Flared Car with a Factory Cage. I did some work to it (not a lot of man-hours or $$), until a guy from Europe had to have it and another 74 Carrera street car(Rusty as hell) I had. I sold them in 2005-6 for over Hundred Grand for the pair. The IROC was restored and Sold for Huge Money. The street car was restored and the last time that I'm aware of that it sold for $160,000

    The Porsche. Never was a big fan of the '74 and later second gens (no offense to anyone that has one - just don't really care for the styling).

    Besides - I was living in Germany from 1974 - 1977 and a Porsche was beyond my E4 pay grade. But I have fond memories of being passed by a 911 when I was doing 135+ MPH on the autobahn and it felt like I was standing still.
