Come stop by our booth at the Body Coddington All Speed Expo at the KCI Expo Center this weekend and say hi! We are out supporting the show and the hard working guys that are making it happen here in KC. Should be a ton of great exhibitors showing off their stuff!

An interesting question that came up at breakfast this Saturday. While the blog and company here are mostly Porsche based, we are still car guys. If Porsche didn’t exist, what kind of car would you drive for fun? And you can’t say “Porsche, there is no substitute, because they don’t exist. 🙂 I have a hodgepodge of cars I really like. Of course, I would never be without a truck or 4×4, I love jeeps, so doing a 5.7L hemi …

With the motor freshly rebuilt and running, we were still having a hard time starting the car which had not really changed since before the rebuild. The 73.5 911 used a 1 year only warm up regulator which helps the engine start when cold. Unfortunately, unlike the later model WUR’s, they are not rebuild able once they fail, and finding a good one is nearly impossible. Thus we decided to update to a 109 style WUR like the later 911’s. …

While at times it seemed so far away, the middle of October came before we knew it, and we were headed up to Road America for the Chump Car Central Region “Chumpianship.” We had qualified at Brainerd for this race by 6 seconds……that’s right time does matter in these long endurance races. Of course then we qualified again at High Plains Raceway later in the year, and of course we were stoked to go! RA is one of our favorite …

That’s right….chumpianship. With great finishes at BIR and HPR, Car 54 Where Are You is qualified for the Chumpianship at Road America here in a few weeks. Trying to get the car prepped to hold up for such a prestigious event isn’t easy. No one wants to haul 10 hours each way and have the car break down, so I am going the distance on making sure this thing is ready to go. One of the major issues with E36 …

Ever driven a 6-volt 356 with sealed beam lights at night?  You usually end up hoping for a clear night and a full moon.  Here we’re doing the popular fix that Joe Leoni started.  I don’t think you can buy the kits from him anymore but any good 356 guy can do it for you. I usually mark on masking tape where these are going before I put them in.  It is very easy to get those wires confused once …
