Yes, very nice to see someone rocking a 411. Very cool man, although not quite a "hoodride".
When I saw the title, I thought, "Wow, a rusty 411, running as found body, with all sorts of rusted paraphenalia and stickers and spray painted decals all over it, scraping the road running on shiny BRM's or Empi-5's! Have to see THAT!"

This is a photoshoped image I just found

Again, not taking anything away from your 411, it looks great!

I agree, not the purist of hoodrides out there, although, the paint job is a true 1974 job, and although this was a one owner when I found her.. I didn't want to chop and do too much alterations on it.
The most work on it was the springs that have been shortend (thx van Zyls spring worx) (and I already have an origional standard set if I need to change)

stickers.... yes on the doors, but once again, respecting the car's age, and the previous owner who kept it in such a good state (complete with service record and handbook) i opted for no spray painting..
rust...mmmm yes a small bit on the front fender (not noticable) but then again, rust is not a crime ;)
Thanks to all for the nice comments!!!

Well, it looks like a have a car too nice to be a 'hoodride' then.
It is like having a Peugeot, putting stickers on it, and fake air intakes and saying it is a race car.
Like this one that i saw a week ago

Although, yours is at least respecting the car.
If I may add my 2c, lose the stickers.
Nice ride man! :hangloose:

I think your car looks great! And I love seeing 411 and 412s around because I know the bodies just rusted away.

Now that, folks, is a variant...

Where's TB again...? Benoni?

Thank you all for the kind words, and views!
it is MUCH appreciated, I feel like a proud father!
lol
I beleive it is either transvaal Benoni, or Boksburg...
I drove the car (without the GP reg plates displayed) for a while to run the engine in..
Its fun to see the reaction on the cops faces when they see me comming down the road :D

The paint looks brand new, lovely car!

Like the look you went for, especially respecting the car's well kept condition. Not something you see every day :hangloose:

Cool ride, looks like it had a previous owner that respected it as much as you seem to. Be good to see it out and about..... Maybe with some more rack furniture :)
