    Not 100% sure if it is a kit Porsche or an original but it is a Porsche, not sure what model though.

    Porsche looked very original to me,it wasn't fibre glass...but as the owner wasn't there I didn't want to poke around too much

    I'm off on a trip along the rally routes over Easter,I believe there are plenty of 'Barn Finds' along the routes

    They use plenty of Series 1 and 2 Landies as tow trucks here,normally hand painted bright orange,green or red

    Very nice finds if the owners only knew what it could be worth.

    Rumour has it that in the 80's / 90's when the Safari Rally was part of the World Rally Championships it was cheaper to leave the rally cars behind than take them back to Europe.

    This was also due to the cars being specifically built for the Safari, extra strengthening to endure the hardship of the event, the cars also weighed too much to be used elsewhere on the championship.

    So you might come across some very interesting old rally cars - DON'T forget to take pics if you do stumble across some.
