Truly hand made.

Found this small gem of a documentary about Porsche, dating probably from 73. Lots of footage from the assembly line…
In this day and age, when marketing advertises “craftmanship” and “handmade” willy-nilly, it’s sobering to watch a truly hand made car being built. No robots but hammers abound…

The spirit

Another fine model from GT Spirit and another fine addition to my shelf !
This time is a model very dear to me, a 75′ 911 coupe very similar to my own Targa.

Cinemascope brochures

There was a time when Porsche brochures were more adventurous… Check these two for the 74 (orange) and 75 (black) model years !

Closed…

And opened.

They measure about 35 x 25 cm. During my teen years, I had both covers spread on my bedroom walls… It was a long journey.

Rust to Glory

A few days ago while ordering “Dust to Glory”, a fantastic documentary on the Baja 1000, I came up with the idea for this post, aptly renamed as “Rust to Glory”.

When I bought my car, I also bought unknowingly a bucket of rust… blame it on the strong emotions that a first ride on a 911 (even partly rusty) can generate. Fast forward a few years and I decided to finally tackle the issue, head on (or rather I paid someone to do it).

Many hours later, almost as if it just arrived from the factory…

Even many more hours later…
