Boost Your Heart With a Porsche 930

Boost Your Heart With a Porsche 930

By Petrolicious Productions / 22 Jul 2014

As I became little older I appreciated the driving, the engineering, and especially the quality of German cars. With this 930, I love the tank-like feel of the chassis, the rawness of the unassisted steering, and the iconic 911 shape on steroids. Oh and the boost! I love the boost!

I’d be in a gas station buying more Monster Energy Tea and Maxx would be out giving the whole story to some mystified traveler who’d either never seen one and thought it was a vintage Porsche or Saab or, on rare occasions, knew exactly what it was and was thrilled to see one for the first time in dozens of years. Driving the DS was like coming into town with free cookies or a basket of kittens.

What to Drive Today–Porsche or Ferrari?

What to Drive Today–Porsche or Ferrari?

The 911 has a race car feel and it's a little tinny, but light and quick. In terms of preference, the Porsche and the Ferrari are completely different worlds, and each has its own attributes. The Ferrari (a 550 Maranello) is big, refined and comfortable. It pulls like a D9 Caterpillar (big bulldozer)! It's a perfect blend of comfort and performance–a true gentleman's GT.

When it comes to this Jag, I like the smell and the sound, most of all. I like the thin steering wheel, the bakelite switches, the feeling of the gearbox, and the hard clutch. The engine has a lot of torque and is gently powerful. And obviously, I love it because I have been dreaming of it since I was a child.

I like the fact they are attainable, easy to work on (if its not a rust issue) and easy to upgrade. The best things for me are that it's sort of retro, has '80s coolness and it's real fun to drive! It might be FWD, it might not be as fast or rare as its RS Turbo and Cosworth family-members but it's something that can be driven everyday and can be driven hard!

And he was right, it was my dream car, a '69 Shelby in one of my favorite colors for it and in great condition. I love originality, so the fact that it's so untouched made it a no-brainer for me. I sold my '69 Mach 1 that I had just finished, and haven't regretted the decision for a single second.

Every Friday night was a social event, old and young alike would come to the garage, admire the car, talk about their day, and then talk about the car. The old men loved it and remembered it from their youth, the young guys loved its rarity. I remember sitting in it while Angelo tuned the carburettors, and I'd dream of getting my license and driving it.

After about a month and a half of planning, the date was set; we would load the F40 into an enclosed trailer and make the trip over to the Salt Flats. All was looking good until two days prior when the forecast called for a heavy rainstorm near Wendover that Friday. My heart sank. Was the dream shoot going to be cancelled because Mother Nature had her own plans?

I found the car parked along a country road in Pennsylvania. I was running late for a client meeting but knew I would hate myself if I didn't stop for a look. A quick once-over and I was in love and now running very, very late for said meeting. Following the meeting, I was to head down to Northern Virginia to pick up a 1972 Long Hood 911. In a matter of seconds, I knew my plans had changed.

Raced Regularly, The Rest of this Lancia's History is Uncertain

Raced Regularly, The Rest of this Lancia's History is Uncertain

When Mike retired and moved back to the UK, he gave–or sold–the car to someone who kept it in a cigarette factory in Kakinada, in Southern India. The factory eventually shut down, then was shuttered. Yet the Lancia remained in a corner, with trees growing through it. Eventually, the car was ‘rediscovered’, hoisted over the wall and taken to the nearby city of Hyderabad, where it was restored.
