When Pirellis Were Skinny

Just happened upon some very old photographs.  First, not long after acquiring the 1966 Bahama Yellow 911, equipped with dogleg-first 5-speed, Weber carbs, gold script and badging and, of course, Pirelli tires:

And later, by 1969 the thing was running Firestone wet/dry “gold stripe” competition tires (forgotten the size now, but not the fact that the tread wore very fast) on wider wheels but still preserving basic stock appearance. (Probably was triggered by a late night indiscretion in which I was waxed by an aggressive Mini Cooper.) Later to come, Bursch exhaust, and I forget what else. Never did make the plunge for Fuchs.
