1974 911 Infamous Porsche oil drip


Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1974; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 124,000;

I've recently become interested in Porsche's (I own an '87 Pontiac Fiero GT now), and wanted to know about the "infamous Porsche oil drip": a droplet about the size of a quarter after a daily drive. I'm considering buying a '74 2.7L 911 with 124,000 that recently developed this problem, even though the engine was totally rebuilt, top and bottom end, at 106,000 in July 2001. What causes the problem and is it something I should worry about?
