You can not replicate this car for anywhere near the listing price! As little as 2 to 3 months. Yes it took forever, but polishing stainless is therapeutic, if not hypnotic. I figure this way I could go back to original if I ever decide to sell the car. You can now build your own race car legend in impressive 1:8 scale. Speaking of sportomatics, is there anyone that specializes or even works on them anymore? Once his own car was done, and word started to get around, people began reaching out to Leh to ask about having a 911 Safari built for them. Remove the clock and glove box.

You see, as values of certain 911s continue to increase Leh is more cautious than he used to be about driving some of the other Porsches in his collection.
