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 was tongue & cheek on this but thrilled it has grown into a real live thread

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.

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.

yeah, and im not real thrilled with the gel coat quality. finish looks like Edward james almos' face, or more accurately an orange peel. working with the vendor on making it right by some reduction in price. we shall see how that goes before I post a thread with photos & deets on a prevalent pelican presence junk. funny thing I sourced both the bumper for the spec car from the same vendor and the gel took just a bit of sanding, prime and paint. this unit will take me hours to get right as I no body man.

no badge for the domino... im beginning to think an "outlaw" is a state of mind.....

If you have an “Outlaw” badge on your grill, you’re trying too hard.
