I'm happy that the video was made and posted here. Not sure why some guys have such chips on their shoulders. I guess its the internet so folks want to get riled up about stupid stuff.

- Cool photography of a sweet blue 930. What is not to like? I love the clunks as he bashes it over those rough roads.

- Fantastic sound. Honestly my main thought when watching it was: what the heck exhaust is that? And: damn, I wonder if that's a rarly muffler. It is a rarly. I wish he'd had some big credits at the end of the film because to me that sound was the star. Rarly should be ecstatic, its much better ad than any of the the videos of his exhaust I've watched on youtube. I kinda sorta want that muffler now. My cars subdued backfiring is supposed to sound like that!

- The wheels are ok, but I'm not into wheels I guess. They might be my favorite aftermarket 930 wheels. The Lindseys built from Fuchs annoy me more. But... I'd rather see the car blasting around on fuchs.

So - I don't mind the advertisement aspect at all - that motivation funded a some good footage that's free for me to watch!

I like the wheels...the center cap is elegantly done too.

the dude needs a cut, shower and shave however...he looks like he might smell a bit. does not make me want to ride along with him is a 930's cramped quarters

Rich, don't the bars of soap that YOU handle usually end up on the shower floor (thrown down there with authority, I might add - so sez Tim's hound)!?

I enjoyed the video personally. It actually motivated me to get my alignment done and get the last few things done on my 930 so I can start driving it again.

And I will admit - I really like the wheels. So much so that I am going to list my Fikse's for sale and buy a set. (in 17's RONNIE)

Chris, it appears that you are coming to your senses at long last (about the wheel size, that is - other elements still need some work, but I promise to continue offering quality assistance with that!) - good job, sir!!!

Let's try and keep it this way guys?

Personally, I like the videos. Excellent camera work, fantastic subject (and by that, I mean the Porsches).

Are they kinda self promoting? Yep, but who cares? Not me. If I could shoot a video as well as his mates, trust me ... it would be posted here in a heartbeat!

Its all about the cars.

Let's not spend a lot of energy bashing a fellow P-car enthusiast. When a thread goes too far ... well then it just goes too far.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I am going to strap my GoPro onto a fender and shoot some scenes.

Edelweiss I bet Your just like the new guy at work that just can't shut the **** up. With only 37 posts you sure seem to have very large opinion. Personally I think it's just all jealousy,because there are not four pages of threads talking about you.
Too much negativity in this world just breeds more. Personally I'm a very positive person but I'm feeling in quite the negative mood after reading all this ****.

Yes a lot of jealous judgmental grumpy men. So people with dreadlocks and long hair are dirty? C'mon people. Go to school, read some books, gain some knowledge and quit making stupid ass comments. If your going to pass judgement on someones looks, then please post a picture of yourself so that we can also do the same to you.

I believe the guy is OK and loves P-cars, mainly 930s, as we do... didn't see anything on the video showing the above comments...

Weird, I thought the comments made about Magnus' looks were tongue-n-cheek humor - they weren't? If those things were said about me I would get a big laugh out of it!

+1. There's a bit of hazing going on, which is what we do as a brotherhood at times, y'know, to our brethren who crave attention. Its all in fun. And at least as much fun to laugh at or with the brethless fanbois. Take it for what it is, Porsche guys having a good laugh about something that seems funny.

I am generally a "if you aint got nothtin nice to say...........shut your damn mouth" kinda guy.

However when you go out of the way to put yourself in front of the public eye, a little more judgment is expected.

It's tough to throw stones at a dude as "bad" as you (and me).

Let me put this to bed. Here is a pic of Ronnie, Rich and me last week before we put on a valve adjustment tech session at Ronnie's crib. Go ahead and laugh. Grease washes right out of polyester.

Frikkin Ritz crackers and cheeze wiz. Boone's Farm after the last valve was adjusted. The house was rockin'.



Edit........

At the tech session Tim Hanson was also there and asks me, "Did you hear somebody say something?"

I said.........

"I heard somebody say burn, baby, burn. Disco Inferno".

Don't let Bobus-Maxumus fool youse - I'm more of a black leather kinda dude (and don't go huntin' down some "Rob Halford-ghay biker guy" pics either, bisch)!!!

I have to say, though, you and Rich did look mighty stylin' in yer pimpoutfits, and they held up fairly well to Tim's hound's sniffin' n snortin'!!!
