The Porsche Race Car Classic in Photos

October’s Rennsport Reunion IV festivities included a special show at The Quail. The Porsche Race Car Classic was a gathering of over 200 spectacular, pre-1965 race cars, including many 356’s, Carreras, Speedsters, 550 Spyders, and the only two Porsche F1 cars from 1960. The setting was fantastic, and most of the entry ticket went to charity. All-in-all, a wonderful day!

Porsches 2 Oxford 2011: A Casual Porsche Party

Who would guess that Oxford, Ohio (home to Miami University and a bucolic downtown setting, complete with brick streets), might become the summer “must drive” destination for all cars Porsche? With the Mid-Ohio Region PCA’s “P2O” event, Oxford has become just that. Over 500 cars registered this year, drawing attendees from as far as Canada, Wisconsin, and South Carolina.

Top 10 Unappreciated Cars

Top 10 Unappreciated Cars

This is a great job… I love having the opportunity to share my opinions with all of the InMyGarage.com readers. I also  enjoy being able to spark conversation (and maybe even a little controversy) here and there. Lists always seem to generate some of both, so let’s bring ’em back! Here are my Top 10 Unappreciated cars.

Plum Crazy? 1973 Porsche 911S Restoration (part 2)

Plum Crazy? 1973 Porsche 911S Restoration (part 2)

In the first installment of this build, we showed you the tear-down of a well-used 911, and followed it through paint work. Now, take a look at the suspension and electrical work that was done. The before pictures show this car was driven hard! You’ll be amazed at the attention to detail that went into restoration and reassembly.

Sloan Cars: Where Porsche Dreams Come True

Sloan Cars: Where Porsche Dreams Come True

For years, Porsche lovers have admired (and occasionally purchased from) the Sloan Cars collection, which spans over 50 rare and unique Porsches at any given time. Browsing the Sloan Cars website is like being in a candy-store. Recently I had the chance to talk with Richard and Brett Sloan to learn a little more about what they do.

Plum Crazy? Restoring a Rough 1973 Porsche 911S

Plum Crazy? Restoring a Rough 1973 Porsche 911S

At Griot’s Garage, we like cars. Fast cars, elegant cars, cars with style. We also believe in the preservation of cars as important documents of history and culture. Sometimes that job involves a nut-and-bolt restoration, as with the subject of this article, a 1973 Porsche 911S that likely lived most of its life parked next to — not inside — the garage.

Porsche Speedster Gets a Lift

Porsche Speedster Gets a Lift

When Griot’s Garage President, Mark Greene, told me a generous customer was allowing us to showcase his 1957 Porsche Speedster, I was ecstatic. When he told me where he wanted the car displayed… I was floored. It’s not every day you see an automobile like this. And I bet you’ve never seen one hoisted 12 feet into the air with a forklift!

Star Cars: Janis Joplin’s 1965 Porsche 356c

Star Cars: Janis Joplin’s 1965 Porsche 356c

It’s hard to believe that, had she somehow found a way off the path of self-destruction, Janis Joplin would be turning 67 in a few days. America’s first female rock superstar created a catalog of soulful music that has transcended generations. And, did you know, the singer who famously belted, “Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz” also left behind a pretty neat car?
