Give it all ! (repeat)

If you’re a hardcore 911-er and think of the last 50 years, few images can convey better what it all means in terms of a raw, visceral experience.
The 911 experience, distilled…

Jack of all trades… (the car, not Jack !)

Nice video about pelicanner Jack Olsen and his 72′ 911…

Huntmaster

I finally went ahead and bought a bottle of Jagermeister, something that any true Porsche addict shouldn’t be without.
Jagermeister (Huntmaster in German) is a herbal liquor best consumed cold (very). I keep it in the freezer at -18C and it’s mouth-wateringly excellent !

For many, many years I didn’t know what Jagermeister stood for. I just knew it was written on the side of some fabulous 934’s that seemed to win every GT race in the mid 70’s. Those were the days…

A few years later Tamiya come out with a fantastically detailed 1/12 scale model kit of this same car. My, how I lusted after it, as it was quite pricey ! In fact, I still continue to lust. As they became collector items, the price has more or less kept up  with the inflation since then.

My most favorite

My favorite 911 “shape” of all time: the 74′ 3.0 Carrera RSR (although this one is probably a replica… sunroof). Clearly not the most “pure”, but a lot of aggression cleanly integrated into an already classic shape. Besides the appeal to 911-o-philes like us, that’s good industrial / product design too.

Love it , Love it, Love it !
