I wouldn't mind having a 912 - all the chassis goodness but engine parts off the much more affordable VW shelf (for the 912E).
Mine is the lighter and fully galvanized (zero rust) chassis often called "narrow body" (like the 912 model). My old daddy had the next gen 3.0SC engine installed which is said to be the strongest of the air/oil cooled 6cyl boxer engines. more of a garage queen. Never take it out in the rain or if it's too hot and No gravel roads. Is that sick or what?
