Ugliest Porsche Ever

Could this possibly be the ugliest Porsche you’ve ever seen? I found this today on ebay and I have to say it’s appalling. In the auction description, the seller claims that over $150k was invested. What a waste. I just don’t see anything to like about this car. The front looks like a slantnose gone […]

I came home yesterday to an issue of Success Magazine that was sent to me in the mail. It’s not a magazine I would normally read (despite my desire to be successful!), but this one happened to have an article on Mario Andretti in it, so I gave it a quick read. Me not being […]

500th Post

Today I’m posting my 500th post on It’s been just over a year since I started the blog and I can’t believe we’re already hitting the 500 post mark. I’ve been contemplating what to do with this post and was half tempted to just let the milestone go by since I’m guessing that most […]

Porsche 911 2.7 RS Video

I know there aren’t too many people who like the 2.7 engine, but this is one sweet looking car and a great video. I didn’t even know Porsche Experience TV existed. Some great driving footage and narration by the Chief Driving Consultant at one of Porsche’s Experience Centers. I WANT THAT JOB!
