1988 Ferrari Testarossa Flood Damage

Here is a 1988 Ferrari Testarossa that has been salvaged due to flood damage in Texas.  You can see how high the watermark is on the front hood.  Look at the interior pictures as a reference so you can learn to spot possible water damage in the future.  For the water level to get that high on the hood and side strakes, the interior water level must have been up to the seat bottoms at least!   Check out the pictures of mold spots on the headrest and B Pillars.   I think there will be a huge number of flood damaged cars coming to market so be aware.   Its a shame to see these beautiful classic cars become salvaged and turned into parts cars.

Do you think the engine can still be saved after flood levels that high?

1971 Porsche 917/10 Can Am Replica

 

Spotted is a 1971 Porsche 917/10 Can Am Replica for $80,000 USD.  The seller says this car was built to resemble JO Siffert’s car.  It has 2 2007 Subaru Tribeca EZ30 Engines bolted together at the crankshaft.  Insane!  The front engine is set up at Top Dead Center on cylinder one and the rear engine is set on cylinder six. The next cylinder in the firing sequence. The front engine will talk to the Megasquirt MS3 Pro Evo computer and then the signals will be split to the injectors and coils.  The seller needs additional guidance to set up the computer wiring to run correctly.   This is a ambitious project but I am eager to see these running on the track one day.
