    Seriously. We need more pics. I'm not a car guy, but I could easily become one for that stunner.

    Thanks guys. The car really does it for me also. I had taken a break from driving it for a bit due to spending a bunch of time in the saddle. Was inspired to take it out earlier this week and was instantly reminded how awesome it is to get on the throttle. Such an awesome driving experience. Sure they are beautiful to look at, but nothing beats the visceral feeling of driving.
    I'll have to take some time to upload a few pics to Flickr so that they show up well on the forum. In the meanwhile, you can check out a the blog a good friend of mine runs. Mostly P car stuff and great photography. My car is scattered amongs his pics too.

    Thinking about buying some fifteen52 Outlaws for my dad for his birthday... but I guess I found a more deserving recipient!

    The reality is that you buy the paperwork, not the car. Many expensive and rare vintage cars have been cloned. The original car is bought for the title and stored in its original state while an exact replica is used with the same chassis number. There are even cases of disputes about chassis numbers, including Ford GT-40 cars that both races in historic racing with the same chassis number while the original car was crashed and completely destroyed decades ago.

    I don't see any good reason to do that with such a common car though.

    Exactly. You don't buy the car, you buy the history....And you better do your homework.

    There are a lot of P-cars that inspire lust in my mind, but this one is on a totally different level.

    Not a Porsche, but returned to the shop Monday morning and found this.

    1961 Maserati 3500 GT. Originally due in for a belly pan replacement, now will go through a full restoration.

    I recently commissioned a bike themed Porsche project with Rod Emory of Emory Motorsports. Rod's the man when it comes to hot rodding 356's. I'm starting out with a 65 C-Coupe, and Rod and his crew are working their engineering and metal-work mastery to transform it into a C4 rally machine that can stand up to the shitty winters here in New Hampshire, and serve as a chase/support vehicle for our dirt road rides.

    Here's the donor car, a well used race car with a solid body:

    Here she is dis-assembled and on her way to media blast:

    Here's a bad preliminary photo-chop rendering of what she'll look like when she's completed:

    Not sure about the final livery yet, but it's a fun project.

    If that's the Raid Rockingham sag wagon the first ride ending bike failure will happen before the group exits the parking lot.

    While waving beers.

    You HAVE to bring that noise to Ballers.

    Been a bit hectic in the shop. Finally back to the 934. Finalizing some fit of the fenders and getting ready for exterior color.

    Also had a gent from Florida come by for some suspension work as well as a set of our wheels on his 79 Turbo.

    Busy busy. 73 RSR (green) almost done.. Just finishing the gearbox cooler plumbing. Will have on the ground at some point this afternoon. White RSR in for race prep for Indy next month. Found a tear in the axle boot....nothing like cleaning a gallon of molly that's been flung all over the place. Orange 934 tub in color. Been spending a lot of time reassembling. Brand new suspension laid out and hung. Lastly, 10 Fuchs back from the machine shop, all from the green car. Had the centers bead blasted than machined out so that we can build them into 3 piece race wheels. Currently brushing them and taping the fingers off for black paint.

    Why use the Fuchs that way instead of going with a new forging?

    Beautiful fun stuff as always!

    Thanks Mark, we use the original Fuchs mainly for strength. Most aftermarket Fuch replicas aren't strong enough for racing.. They also don't make them in 16's with the offsets and widths we need. The only thing I've found that would work are the limited run replicas that Fikse makes...But those are only available in 17's and 18's.

    My shop had a heck of a time finding a set of 16s for me a couple years ago.

    Was thinking for race application new and strong vs the period correct look might have been solved. Nothing like "vintage" stuff to keep everyone busy hunting parts.

    That green color is splendid BTW.
