Hopefully I can sneak out and get them dirty this weekend, I don’t even remember the last time I had it in 4Low, and that’s unacceptable.
Don’t mind me, just none of our damn parts got shipped last night because the shipper (Tricor) elected to not pick them up from the vendor (WorldPac). So now my guys are standing around, we’re going to have to try to do 20 hours of work in one afternoon one we get the re-ordered stuff later, and a bunch of people…
Really small French car
No time for a proper post today, and I don’t have much in the way of 356s so this’ll have to suffice. More to come in the lead up to Le Mans.
Since Project Slow Devil went so easily, may I propose... Project Greased Lightning? Imagine, in this
sleek machine you can wheel with your friends on board, and enjoy true power from the big 6. The ad says it runs, so all you have to do is fly out to sunny CA and drive it home, with no trouble whatsoever! Couldn’t…
It is imperative that you approach the elders of the tribe first with respect, and present your diecasts in an offering of peace. Note that they will be parked well away from the younger troublemakers (dubbed “SN95s” by the Falcon Elder), which is key, because if the younglings catch sight of a human first there is no…
Bob Marley is.
Freedom thunder pipes
Wonder if it smokes.
What do you do with a suddenly obsolete, formerly pink Jaguar racing car that says Bud Light on the sides? Expatriate it to Germany, cut the roof off, give it a 15 year old engine, and win Le Mans twice. Easy, if you’re Porsche, TWR, and Reinhold Joest.
Goddamn these guys kick ass
When dad hides the eggs, shenanigans happen.
It’s still Friday here! This, friends, is perhaps the greatest French car ever made by France.
Man this would make a nice daily, NP all day. You never see them this nice any more.
The Mk4 is the sexy one that gets all the internets, but i think i like these better. This one’s not a turbo, but a bone stock, all original manual Mk3 is hard to find in any form so it’s pretty cool in my book.
Since I shamefully don’t have a 917 model in my collection, I thought I’d keep it in the family with another Porsche juggernaut, the 956. If the 917 started Porsche’s legacy of overall victory at Le Mans, this car cemented it.
Except when your cars come into pit when there’s a good battle going on... “Uh, do a couple more laps, then box. Yes, we were supposed to box this lap, but, uh, engineering changed their mind.”
At COTA in Austin, always nice to come here when it’s not eleven million degrees and 275% humidity.
