LE MANS 2018 WEEKEND

From the Porsche Newsroom:

“180 drivers and 60 vehicles will fight for victory at Le Mans. With four 510 hp Porsche 911 RSRs contesting the GTE-Pro class, Porsche fields the largest GT works contingent in the company’s history at the 13.626-kilometre Circuit des 24 Heures.” More

914/6 GT TRIBUTE

For June, I’ll have a couple of publications. The first will be in PCA Porsche Panorama Magazine.

It had to be orange, of course. Just like virtually every other real 914/6 GT raced by the Porsche factory Werks department. This tribute GT also had to start as a 914/6 to be eligible for racing today. It needed to be heard before it was seen too. Thanks to straight through pipes and no real muffler to speak of, that’s assured. More

WHO ORIGINATED THE LOUVERED 911 REAR DECK LID?

Nobody knows… What we do know is that Rolly Resos sold a muti-louvered Porsche 911 rear decklid that he had picked up at a Pomano Swap meet to a long-haired guy in scruffy clothes at the German Autofest in 2002. That’s how the legend of the “Urban Outlaw” was born…

WHY DID AIMEE’S RECORD NOT SUCCEED?

Whatever was the first solo record from Aimee Mann. It was released over 25 years ago this month to little fanfare, although it is arguably one of 1993′s best albums. More

R GRUPPE TREFFEN

Yes, I’ve been to every R Gruppe Treffen – 18 in a row. This year’s event in Buellton, California featured great weather and camaraderie. Having a drone to photograph stills and video ensured it was even more special. Thanks to all my friends for a wonderful time.

MAY 911R GOODNESS

No, it wasn’t an April fool’s joke. This month’s Panormama Magazine features my interview with Kevin Jeannette and his purchase of Porsche’s 911R #15 for $9500. Check it out. It’s hilarious.

PLAYTIME AT THE EMORY’S

Here’s my latest feature in Road Scholars Magazine. It’s an insight into Rod and Zayne Emory’s toy car collection. Lots of great stories are told against a backdrop of miniature models in their new Emory Motorsports shop in North Hollywood.

All photos shot on a Leica Q with natural light.

THANKS TO THE ROTHSPORT RACING TEAM

Last year I was given the opportunity to photograph and write a feature article and short film on two Rothsport Racing Porsche 911s, both of which finished the 2017 NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road race. More

CAMERON AND ERIC HEALY WIN AT THE MEXICAN 1000 TO MAKE PORSCHE HISTORY

A production-based Porsche 911 has never won its class at a Baja 1000 off-road race. Cameron Healy (driver) and Eric Healy (navigator) took the win in the 2018 NORRA Mexican 1000 Vintage Stock Production Cars class piloting a Rothsport Racing Porsche Safari 964. Teammates Jeff Gamroth and Tim Ralston of Rothsport Racing finished second. Congrats to all!

THE ULTIMATE 928 DIY RESTORATION

“Minerva’s Journey” is a behind the scenes look at what it takes to rebuild a 166,000-mile Porsche from the tub up to “as new” stock condition nearly 40 years after it left the factory.

William Anast and Rob Edwards deserve big kudos for this month’s publication of their 1978 928 refurbishment in PCA’s Panorama Magazine. This was an epic journey in more ways than one.

WHO CAN SEE IT

If you’re interested in travel photography as a full-time profession, here are some reflections from a 23 year-old giving it all he’s got. Unfortunately, as hard as he tries, his plan is likely to fail over the long term.

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT

As a full-time pro for over 25 years, the gear I take on assignment depends on what is needed. Contrary to what it might look like, I prefer to work with the minimum amount of equipment. More

THE GOLD 911R AND KEVIN JEANNETTE

Here’s a pic of Bruce Jennings and Kevin Jeannette from the late 1960s with Porsche 911R #15. What a wonderful moment. Look for a future article on this car. Happy Easter and April Fool’s Day!

IT DOESN’T MATTER

Stephen Stills and Manassas were a short-lived super group in the early 1970s. They made some great music together. Here’s proof. Big Gretsch guitars, big hair, big mutton chops… all live, no overdubs, no lip-synching. Soulful.

“Moment by moment. One day at a time. It doesn’t matter. It’s nothing but dreaming anyhow.” More
