Hehe...the 1972 911's all had the oil filler on the right rear fender ahead
of the rear wheel.  FYI, the gas filler in on the left front fender.
Needless to say, Porsche switched the oil filler back under the hood in
1973.  Too many service station attendents attempted a fillup in the rear
fender....bad bad bad!
