ERIC LINDEN (A.K.A. THE TRENDSETTER}

I’m at R Gruppe Treffen 2017 in Napa. And the timing couldn’t be better. My friend Eric Linden of Auto Foreign Services and his 1967 Porsche 911S have been setting R Gruppe trends for 20 years.

The story of the man and his first sports purposes early 911 will appear in Excellence Magazine this month.

You can check out Eric’s exact replicas of those hard to find early 911 parts here.

DRIVE TOWARD A CURE

This past weekend I had the privilege of attending the inaugural Drive Toward a Cure Road Rally, which benefits Parkinson’s research. Kudos to Deb Pollack and Mark Davidson for organizing this successful and heartfelt California adventure.

My wife and I followed a Porsche 356B Super 90 from the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles to the Mullin Museum in Oxnard to the Allegretto Vineyard Resort in Paso Robles. There we joined in a banquet and staged rally to raise money for a very worthy cause.

Learn more at Drive Toward a Cure.

GT WINNER IN PCA PANORAMA

Kudos to the folks at Panorama Magazine for publishing a feature of mine in their April issue. It’s an R Gruppe award-winning 1973 Porsche 911 hot rod in Signal Yellow that Steve Baker built over 11 years. The result is a stunning car and a fun read!

ANOTHER COVER

Simplify simplify, simplify. It’s easy to overlook how powerful a detail can be when composing a photograph. Thanks to the crew at PCA Pacific Northwest Region’s Spiel Magazine for choosing my image for this month’s cover.

CAYENNE

Porsche’s SUV has turned out to be the perfect daily driver for my wife and I. All-wheel drive, great visibility, comfortable, not too big for city parking – but enough storage capacity to haul all our gear and still function as a camera car. Love it!

SINGER IN SUN VALLEY

Thanks to Singer Vehicle Design rep Deb Pollack and PCA magazine editor Amy Skogstrom for putting together this assignment for me. The current issue of Porsche Panorama features a “reimagined” 911 that I spent the weekend with in Idaho last summer. Yeah, it was an experience that I’ll never forget!

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

On the first of every month I’ll be posting about a photograph I made.

This month we look at an image I created in 2010. It’s an Aga Blue 1973 911E parked in front of some old quonset huts in Orange County. The car’s owner and I scouted this unusual set of buildings and arrived at dawn the next day. More

1972 CUSTOM PORSCHE 911

Not quite a Singer restoration but it has ST bodywork, 315 hp and weighs 2350 pounds. Published in three international magazines. Yes, it’s fast and it’s paid for – and it could be yours! I’ll be taking this 1972 Porsche 911 to sell in California soon!

OUT OF AFRICA

Another historic Porsche has been featured in the January issue of PCA Panorama Magazine. It’s the 1973 911 Carrera RS that finished 2nd in the 1974 African Rally with Björn Waldegård at the wheel.

It’s a fascinating piece that tells the story of Porsche’s involvement in the East Africa Rally of Kenya. Thanks again to creative director Richard Baron and editor Amy Skogstrom for their incredible collaboration with my photos and text. And special thanks to Jürgen Barth for his input!

SEARCHING FOR SALT – ONE YEAR LATER

Thanks to my friends at Road Scholars for publishing an update to my October 2015 award-winning article.

Road Scholars Magazine

It tells the story of Porsche competitor Tom Woodford, who attended the 2014 Bonneville Salt Flats “World of Speed” event. It was the only automotive competition at Bonneville that wasn’t cancelled due to a lack of salt during a three-year period from 2013 to 2015. More
