A tale of two 911s

911s

Do you remember when I made the ‘people who get it‘ post tag? I created it so I could tag the best quality builds, the one’s that you never want to end, the ones that make you go back to the beginning once you reach the last page. Kris is a perpetual offender of such threads, who has his ramblings and beautiful photos not only featured on websites, but also in various forms of print. You may or may not remember a previous build of his and his wife’s that I featured; the highly detailed and jealousy-inducing (for me!) Manilla green MK1 Golf. Well, Kris has kept himself busy since then, turning spanners on not one, but two classic 911′s. The first being a white mid-80′s model, and the most recent seeing him finally snag one of his dream cars, a longhood 911. In a world where 911′s (especially classic ones) are all the rage and plastered all over the internet, it’s refreshing to see a regular car guy like you and I have his way with them. He doesn’t have a warehouse full of Porsches, he doesn’t travel the world bolting on bodykits for cashed-up clients, and he doesn’t charge 6-figures for mil-spec side indicator wiring. This is how a regular person, with a regular budget, works on (and DRIVES!) a Porsche.

    Warehouse-full-of-Porsches guy I don’t dislike, exactly… He’s just a douche bag. A fruitcake that uses phrases like “smiles per gallon” and puts Hoosiers on his street car (if I got the reference right). Not exactly someone I’d associate with.

    And admit it, you are secretly jealous of body-kits guy. I know I am.

    … Who charges “6 figures for mil-spec side indicator wiring”? I don’t think I’m quite catching that one.

    I guess the MIL spec indicator is a reference to Singer.
