That Porka is one beautiful car - so much so that I now want one for show / wknd driving :-( Makes me want to garage my BMW and drive around in that. I'm not a fan of porsches *flamesuit readied* but the classic car it is is capturing my interest more and more!

Seen that vid a while back, he did an interview on Jay leno's garage.
Forest Green with the old school interior, and a reworked motor would be the dream weekend car for me.
Just wish I knew more about actually restoring cars and I might give it a go.

this! this this this! this!
when I finally have a house with a garage, I will get one. unfortunately it wont be a patch on this one or the urban outlaw stuff.

whilst not in the same bracket in terms of originality or beauty, there is something endearing (to me anyway) about the RauhWelt porsches as well.
