A German sports car, Italian coupé, and British roadster, all of which are four-speed manuals and from the ‘60s before regulations began homogenizing car design.

By Jonathan WC Mills / 14 Jan 2015 / 10 Comments Read More

As the year ended most of us took a moment to pause and reflect; looking backwards at expectations met... and missed. This is a function of being human, of course.

My favorite drive is a yearly ritual. Annually, for the past six years, my son and I drive three hours to Limerock Race Park in Lakeville to attend the Historic festival. The drive through the Berkshires and eventually down Rt. 7 is great. It's great mostly because it's just me and Finn in our Porsche. But the road is twisty and undulates perfectly for the 911...

While many of the specs were borrowed from previous 935s, the rest of the vehicle was a high-tech, custom racecar with a light fiberglass body, the latest aerodynamics, and suspension. However, JLP Racing wasn’t satisfied, and so John Paul Sr. commissioned Dave Klym’s Fabcar to build his son the fastest possible Porsche 935, capable of winning any race. According to Paul Sr., price was no issue.

Borne had been racing in the French Supermoto series for years, so he was no stranger to risk but his decision to move into his grandparent’s long-vacant farmhouse in a village on the outskirts of Paris and devote himself to rebuilding classic Porsches nevertheless required a new level of gumption on his part.

A rehearsal dinner and wedding that includes mementos to his love of cars, that’s what. But is it appropriate to shoehorn your car or love for cars into a party or event?
