Thanks, I dig it too.
Most non-Porsche people like it and Porsche guys who own Porsches for fun like it, but there is this serious Porsche people who feel there are 'rules' and I violated them.

Another +1 on Ficke's 68 paint. Really cool. Reminds me of mandelbrot set / chaos theory stuff.

Ooh ficke, I'm a lover (of your paint) not a hater.

Screw the purists. They ruin all the fun.
Let me ask them this: Was Ferdinand a purist? I think not. He was willing to do just about anything to his cars to make them go faster, efficiently. This whole originality thing drives me bonkers.

Sure there's a place for it in the hobby, I guess. But to me it's what we used to call in the 60's and 70's, a "cop out". Anybody can copy what the factory put out on a certain day. Original? Sure. But not very creative.

I think what Magnus does to his cars is cool. After that, who cares.

Thanks, sounds like we are a bunch of 'outlaws'.
I think to the OP, show us a picture of your car. I got a hunch it is an Outlaw and a cool car, and the only thing keeping from being a total outlaw is you wanting it to be.
Attitude, it is your car and rules do not apply to you and your car, outlaw.

I know you well enough to suspect this was the case. I recall your all go no show racecar fondly running against JWE's pretty cars.

I've got a car that's going to need rust repair and eventually paint. However it's getting mechanical cars first. I told my 5yo old daughter she gets to paint it. Hope she makes Ficke proud

I wondered that? good fun, but apparently you did hit a nerve about a real question on peoples mind. Nice.
"what is an outlaw"?
Matt having your daughter paint your car is one of the most rocking ideas I have heard in a long time for 911 fun. It will be better than any picture on the fridge for you, and make her feel a connection with the car.

must not forget rothsport cars...


to be fair, there were plenty of top notch racers from both afore mentions shops that kicked my ass again & again... and again.

I thought it had a lil show with the 917 tribute 23 livery... it did always have that undeniable 10' away appeal. most things built in my garage have the 10' appeal...

I'm a ten footer. If my wife weren't legally blind I think I'd still be single.

here is my stock 68S, except for the paint Seems to cause a lot of emotion with the Porsche guys at the local PCA car shows. I quit going to not cause high blood pressure for them. Kind of Outlaw.
I saw that at Deluxe Customs open house last year (or was it the year before?) Cool car.

Outlaw = irreversible changes. I guess my Pegasus stickers don't do it.

There's nothing that is irreversible. Put enough money into it, and you can turn it into a rocket ship and fly it to the moon.
