Vintage racing jackets.

vintage racing jacket

Rusty Zipper has a wide selection of authentic vintage racing jackets, y’know—-the polyester/nylon type in solid colours with those particular racing stripes.  So go over there, find your perfect colour combination and get one for a very reasonable price (most of them are between $20 and $35!).

Porsche releases photos of the Ltd. Edition “Sport Classic”

Porsche_911_Sport_Classic_old_carrera_rs

Obviously the people in charge of naming this ‘new’ version weren’t exactly scientists in creativity, and it ALMOST sounds like they must have fired the guy responsible for naming it the day before; thus eliminating any chance of a proper name.  Either way, Porsche have decided that there must be 250 people dumb enough to put down $250,000+ on what can basically only be described as a Carrera S with 20-25 extra HP and ‘special’ modern interpretations of the original 70s Carrera RS Fuchs wheels.

My solution? Buy a regular Carrera S for $80k.  Buy the vinyl decals for a few hundred dollars, to get you those matte stripes……chip the engine to get you an extra 20hp (or more).  Pain the car whatever colour you want, even the aviator grey-like colour this one is in.  Buy the Pseudo-Fuchs wheels aftermarket.  You’re still under $100k…and you’ll look damn good doing it.  Skip on the polished steel lip though….i’d go solid black on the wheels.
