The Original Rush of a Porsche

The Original Rush of a Porsche

The 911 was in amazing shape, featuring only 37,000 original miles, and included everything that it did when it was first sold new, including the window sticker and even a packet of disposable gloves intended for roadside emergencies. Additionally, it’s completely stock and has never been altered or modified. Gary simply enjoys the rush of driving a Porsche convertible.

There are the aesthetic considerations obviously, but the most loveable aspect of this car is its position within the two-speed, traditionalist position of the Australian classic car psyche (Holden or Ford). It would take some time to really portray the dualist mindset that many Australian blokes have when it comes to classics from the 1960s and ‘70s... being "is it a Holden or a Ford?"

The plan was always to do everything myself because I didn't have a big pile of money! I dread even thinking about the amount of hours, blood, sweat, and tears that have gone into this. I’ve resprayed panels, learned how to weld, and now have good mechanical knowledge. I can't express enough how much joy I get out of this car, it really has been my life for the past six years...

I’m the president of a local classic car club, called Retro Car Club and here where I live, in the Belgian countryside, roads are fine but flat. That's why we often go out with others to drive the Ardennes Forest, where there are some beautiful shady, winding roads.

My friend called me, saying “You have to buy this car.” We drove about two hours up the road at 9pm. When I first saw it, I liked the uniqueness of the color and the fact that it was a first-year 240Z. The guy I bought it from was actually the original owner. The Datsun had 69,000 miles and was bone stock, I've done everything to this car minus painting it.

Long story short: this Giulia is no trailer queen, but a nice driver fitted with full roll cage, fast road suspension, bucket seats, and full racing harnesses. I am currently in the process of building a mildly fettled 2000 engine for it. There are also tales of rust, panel cutting and welding, painting, hunting down parts, and also of course the previously mentioned winter rally adventure...

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved cars. Thinking back, it seems completely natural. I have found pictures of me as a two-year old surrounded by my toy cars, sitting in front of the television, on which my dad was watching Formula One. And that is how it went, every Sunday, for years and years. I would also read his car magazines, go with him to events, and ride along in every classic he owned.

I ran into this beautiful example at an auto show outside Stockholm in 2008. The owner was an old man who had been driving and restoring 356s for decades, a true Porsche connoisseur. Close to mint condition, narrow original body and the sexy black optional sports seats. Delivered new in Sweden, known owner history–and only 45,000 miles on the meter, bingo!...

In 2002 I began searching for another V4. The Saab-feeling had really gotten to me and I was out to find an example in top condition. I searched the marked and put several ads in Swedish car magazines. There was some response but none was up to my standards. In September 2004, however, things changed and by November the car was in my garage.

My father was a race car driver and could race anything on four wheels, I think that's how I learned my love for cars. Since then, I haven't looked back. This is my fifth Mini and I bought it from a man about to begin a full rebuild. But the car had no rust at all and the chassis numbers are intact on the floor! So I bought it. I just love the classic look, history, handling, sound, and usability of the car.

I enjoy the satisfaction and happiness others get when seeing and asking questions about the car. I routinely get a “thumbs up” from other drivers on the road and many want me to roll down the window, just to ask about the car. When I drive the car, I feel like I’m back in time, to the year 1967. It’s a feeling one just can’t get driving a modern day car.
