Talking of new 500's, I know it looks gay, especially in yellow. But I quite enjoy stealing Miss Monster's 500  :o It's a real hoot to drive, only 100 bhp, but by christ does it make the most of it! Typical Italian small car, thrash the tits off it and you have an ear to ear grin  :D

The 500 looks ace! There's an awesome 600 hill climb car I've seen somewhere, mental bike engined beast. Oh and I prefer Sarge's Rambler. It looks far cleaner. Heaps of work gone into the other one though  :o


Title: Re: * non-VW fest *
Post by: Wünderwolff on October 29, 2008, 00:16:02 am
Just to make it clear, for you that think the 500 is my car:  :(  sadly enough it isn't.

It is a Belgian car though, it was featured in GR8 a Plastic Tuning mag, just bought it for that particular car. These pictures I found on the web but I have the feature somewhere. Speedwell aren't you the archivist ?  ;D ;)

I have always dreamed about such a car though. When I was 20 I was always talking about building a Fiat 500 racecar. I wanted it to be tube-chassied and with a Hayabusa engine instead of a Blackbird but pretty much the same otherwise. Always much of a talker, not much of a do-er. Let's finish the 66 first.  ::)

nice 2002 turbo, is it the same one I saw in Monterey 2 weeks ago?

1934 Horsch part of Auto Union before Hitler messed it up.
The stainless headlight covers tapering down the inside of the front fenders was spectacular.

from the net..

No Concours car, this is the rental-mobile of Derek Bell.
He had the most unfortunate luck. After driving the 917 coupe on track Saturday, he fell somewhat ill and in the need to quickly exiting the vehicle to satisfy an upset stomach. As he generously puked over the scenery, he looked behind him to see in horror the car rolling downhill and hitting no less than FIVE other vehicles! He put the car in neutral instead of "park".
We were laughing so hard when he told us the story that we nearly lost our own lunch. 

The famous Vincent that first reached 150MPH at Bonneville with its driver nearly naked to decrease drag, generating one of the most famous photos of all times:
Pretty cool, hey? Well our friend Alain de Cadenet had to drive the thing during a 50 mile parade in Carmel and on the PCH all the way to Big Sur and 3 days later was still describing the condition of his privates to us on the field at Pebble beach. Pretty hilarious and impossible to report here.

Anyone got a pic of the Citroen 2CV with Maserati SM motor. Bright red color. Featured back page of Road & Track magazine, maybe late 70's? It's gotta be the ultimate "Killer Duck". Web search found a truckette bodied 355 Ferrari, close but not as outrageous.

It was for sale earlier this year at Prestige in Mayfair and made it into most of the broad-sheet cars for sale pages. It was for sale for £200K, I seem to remember. The 599 has a 612BHP 6.0 V12. Nice.

Not keen on the back though:

Take off the caps and I could run open, unsilenced pipes. With them on, the single tailpipe to the side was used, with 'full' silencing. Needless to say, I just used to run it on open pipes most of the time!

Well, it's a VW but not Cal Look VW so no place in cool photos thread  ;)

Got our 'Vert passed the technical inspection today (MOT for Brits, probably something nobody in US has to worry about?) in 2nd attempt, last inspection was 2001, teared into pieces in 2003 for pan off resto. Now almost complete and soon I can think about finding a prospect for proper Cal Look car..

Really like that 'Vert, Tero. Looks Cal Look enough to me. Unless you're joking. We don't have M.O.T. but some states require a vehicle inspection to some degree. Mostly the eastern portion of the country. If we ever had those in California, most of the cars would be taken off of the road. HAHA!!

So, you're selling this car to build something more traditional regarding Cal Look, yes? What do you have in mind?

Stock 30hp so won't be Cal Look. I do like Resto Cal as much as Cal Look. I raised the suspension for the inspection, so it'll sit lower and yes ( :)) with fully polished Fuchs, chromed if I manage to buy certain set. Lots of stuff to do still, like new interior.

So, you're selling this car to build something more traditional regarding Cal Look, yes? What do you have in mind?[/b]

What I have in my mind has been two words for a while "'67" and "LEMNADE" (if I remember the license plate correctly). There are other inspirational later 70's or early 80's cars too  ;)

I am letting go of 'Vert some time but I'll keep it along the project so I can enjoy driving something in the meanwhile.

Post by: Luftkraft on November 12, 2009, 16:32:49 pm
Well, what do you mean by "not too difficult to build"? Making complex things look simple is often the most difficult task. I don't know the details of the car but judging from the pics there are some mods like

metalwork
– chopped roof
– angled a-pillar
– filled roof

chassis work
– front end: dropped I beam axle
– rear end: quick change
– hydraulic brake system

engine work
– rebuilt and hopped-up flathead

interior
– fabrication of floor
– fabrication of (what looks like aluminium) door panels
...

That's just the obvious modifications, apart from the complete restoration as it was orginally built in 1951. Now it's up to you to decide whether that's difficult or not.  ;)

Not sure, but I was told many years ago that there are only about a dozen M1's left (US?) as they have all been smashed up.  Shame.  What a GREAT car.  The M1 and the infamous Porsche 917-10

I think it was designed in England, it was a Hillman Avenger before being facelifted and rebranded as a Chrysler after a facelift. They did a version called the 'Tiger' which was designed to compete against the Ford Escort Mexico and RS models. Did fairly well in rallying if I remember correctly.

I need to get out more I think  :o

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Type_3#Unrelated_Argentine_Volkswagen_1500

Quote
In 1980 Volkswagen bought the Argentinian Chrysler Ferve Argentina SAIC. With the takeover came a new name, Volkswagen Argentina SA, and the company inherited some Dodge / Chrysler vehicles. One of them was the Dodge 1500 (also the Dodge 1800) which the newly taken-over company re-badged as Volkswagen 1500 for the Argentinian market. The estate was known as the Volkswagen 1500 Rural. Both variants continued to be sold until 1988.

The car, which was based on Chrysler Avenger, had also been sold in Brazil, where it was known as the Dodge Polara — this version ceased in 1981, shortly after Volkswagen's purchase of the tooling in Argentina. Note also that this is the car which was available earlier in the 1970s in North America as the Plymouth Cricket.

These cars have no parts related to any other vehicles in the Volkswagen range, including the Volkswagen Type 3 known by the same Volkswagen 1500 name.

I don't think it's too rare, most of them rusted away in the UK though as we salt the roads and Lancia/Fiat/Alfa's of that era rust freely anyway. Although I did follow one to work the other day, cool little cars. They did pretty well rallying back in the day too

(http://cache.jalopnik.com/assets/resources/2007/03/red_fulvia_hf.jpg)

Zagato did a rebodies version of it too, very pretty little things

(http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/classic-car-images/zagato.jpg)

As with most manufacturers now, Lancia say they're going to bring out a modern version of it

Hollywood's secret race track... I was there, driving it the weekend before the storms hit So Cal. After watching this video... I'm going back very soon.

Oh, yeah... almost forgot; turn up the volume a bit. The radio under the hood is rather exquisite sounding.

Rode my bike down the street today to the Doheny Woody Fest.  There were over 100 cars easily and some amazing works of steel and wood art.  The rarest of the rare was there.  It was a 46 Merc 4wd.  Only 4 were ever made.  Car is worth $$$.  Also bitchin' Packards, Morris Minors, etc.. stuff I have never seen before.
Kooky crowd those old wanna be surf guys.....
Fun day 2 miles from home, lots of sun and a whole lot of blue ocean.  Enjoy.

(the orange one is for Mark K, I know you luv those orange cars dude...)

Out at Palm Springs Airport a couple of weekends ago and they have a Museum where all the planes are in flying condition -- They were flying that day a Hellcat and a Bearcat

They have a very rare Spitfire there they fly also -- It was one modified to chase and tip the V1's during WWII

Here are the two national Porsche clubs, Amateur racing events and car shows.
http://www.pca.org/ (http://www.pca.org/)
http://www.porscheclub.com/ (http://www.porscheclub.com/)

Several other clubs hold events for only historic/vintage race cars (my interest) .

Two responses come to mind  ;)


Response #1
Like I used say when I sold parts at BAP/Geon; "If you can't take a joke, don't drive one!"


Response #2
Just sharing the frustration of being a one time Fiat owner. I had a '71 124 Spyder for about a year... wait.. didn't you take the nasty bits out and replace them with VW parts?

Choose whichever you prefer  ;D

How special is that  ::) I have a set at home, lingering in the garage, so common!

Nah, I'm glad you like them, shows the people that laughed at me when buying them for a steal on the Mai Kafer swap meet that at least I'm not the only crazy guy.

Maybe one day if I need a trailer, they'd make very nice trailer wheels?

"at least the TR got beat up on a race track instead resting in a garage during an earthquake"


This story really hits home with me. What I am saying is this: The owner of this priceless Ferrari had the tenacity to actually race the car, rather than allow it to collect dust in a museum or just enter it into car shows. My observation is that the owner of this Ferrari has testicles that still function. He is not some dried up old prune that rants about how he may have done it "back in the day".

There is a group (club) of air-cooled VW owners who fit the description of "dried up old prunes". Some build their cars, take them to car shows, cruises and the like, but NEVER run them down a race track. They are equipped with high performance (some >200HP) naturally aspirated engines, generally running on 91 RON pump gas, close ratio 4 or 5 speed gearboxes, some with near perfect paint jobs. My rant is: if you are gonna build it, RUN IT! Parking along side a drag strip next to the stands in a "display only" motif is absurd. If you can not afford to run it or replace it, then sell it and buy a Honda

Great warbird pictures...I've been putting off buying a ride on the B-17. Should probably do it
before one of us wears out  :D.  The F4U, not so sure. The last one that I know with a back seat
"augered in" with the passenger...ouch.  Got a ride in a P-51 some years back, well worth the money.

No it wasn't Nico...

Even VW guys might recognize this one: the Renault 4CV. A few of these received VW engines. I think Jeff Denham still has one!

Cool KS, that 911 driver has car control skills.
You can hear him pedal it as he catches it while leaving some fresh black stripes on the ground.
Ask him sometime about that clip.
It looks like the lead orange 911 short braked him a bit, or he ran up on the back marker?
Sucks to lose any momentum at the bottom of the hill before the longest straight.
That is an awesome track.  8)

There are some pics of him in the Pisano AA/FC and the "California Kid" AA/FC somewhere, I'll see if I can find them. I've run into him at Cars and Coffee. I think the last time he saw me before that I was about 11 years old, that was about 36 years ago!

Yeah, and strangest thing was that my surfing session began by googling "Joe Pisano", as the name was familiar and couldn't remember from where.. The answer was the Mike Dunn Dodge Omni Funny Car that was in many magazines 20 years ago.. Cannot remember how I ended up to selvedgeyard  :D

My dads old funny car partner was Tom Ridings and he later drove for Joe Pisano. Joe was owner/founder of Venoliia Pistons. Way BITD Tom Ridings father owned Ridings Cadillac in Long Beach, Joe Pisano was an avid Caddy owner, bought a new car every year from Ridings Cadillac. Back in those days my dad was a mechanic at Ridings before moving on to bigger and better things. He became very good friends with Joe Pisano which lead to friendships with Joe Mondello (Pisano's first driver was Sush Matsubara and he ported cylinder heads for Mondello) , Howard of Howards Cams, Art Carr, Dee Keaton and Mickey Thompson (Dee was Mickeys crew chief) and a host of others. All of these friendships enabled him to drag race on a very small budget. Pistons were mostly free, Mickey gave him a lot of "experimental" parts.............you know, the good old days!

I was working for a grading and paving company and was responsible for the grading of the road course at Fontuckey --- THey had us tied to the weirdest requirements as far a grading that course and they made it SSOOOOO rough. I want to apologize to anyone who has to drive that thing because it is rough. I took the project manager for a ride before it was paved and showed him how rough it was and explained how easily it could be smooth out -- He didn't want to hear it -- said the course had been designed by someone famous and no changes were to be made -- Then it was paved and (I forget who designed it) drove it and was PISSED about how rough it was -- of course the Project Mgr couldn't remember our trip around the course in my truck and it became all my fault LOL ---- --- Gotta love construction and politics LOL

This is a beautiful one,I didn't know that Abarth also modified Simca's,I thought they did only Fiat's.

They made a few things for the Simca 1000 (called Abarth 1150), but it's a rare car. By the way, Simca was created before WWII by Fiat to sell rebadged Fiat's in France without paying taxes, then it was taken back by french after the war. Then it's complicated, Simca had affairs with Ford, Chrysler and finally Peugeot that let the brand dissapear with Talbot...

That's a cool GT-R, Lee. Once in a blue moon, one of those shows up to Cars & Coffee on Saturday mornings. A rather rare sight here, in the States. Back when Japanese cars were r.w.d. and actually cool to drive.

I haven't seen many GT-R's but there is quite a lot of cool retro Jap Tin here in Norway - There is an AWESOME series1 Celica next door to my girlfriends parents house  :)

Post by: Rennsurfer on May 20, 2011, 00:41:23 am
A first generation Celica is another rare sight, nowadays. Never used to be. Get a pic or two of that one, if you can. Be a cool addition to this thread, methinks.

I found out that there are a lot of first generation Celica in France, you can often see them in shows or races.

Went to the Dana Point Concours d'Elegance today and ran into an old acquaintance with his latest project. It was in the auction tent but it didn't cross the block.

It's called the "Space Junkie." I jacked the pic from another web site... it wasn't taken today.

Hey they had a cool vintage motorcycle class at the Dana Point Concours... you should have brought your "Dream"  ;)

I'm seriously thinking about putting the Dream up for sale. I never ride it and it needs to go to a good home where it can be seen/used.

The guy who threw the party is Ron Cambra, he built several of those cars out of his BACKYARD shop. Cambra Hot Rods in Orange. His shop is pretty insane also. Met him at the BMX track, his daughter is starting to race bikes, she got tired of the Jr Dragster stuff. I saw Auggie there, he drove the Nova to the party, slicks and all. The black Camaro is Ron's wifes car and I believe it is a 11.00 car with street slicks and AC. Great bunch of people , awesome food and obviously bad ass cars.

Proper "Tank slapper"  

Yes a tank slapper just b/c PJ got cock blocked, stabbed the brakes and rear brakes grabbed/fish tailed the car.
As he tried to find a way around the Orange Camaro meandering in the middle of the track.

ymmv (Fred's  :P does for sure) a proper tank slapper is from entering the corner at too high a speed.
Fast in with an early apex, like this tank slapper.
Or as they say, in like a Lion out like a lamb.  ;)

For the Swedes, here are some pics of my good friend Kaspar's 1985 240"R".
He is a Field Tech Specialist with VCNA and was gifted a brand new 300hp crate S60R engine that was slated to be scrapped.
Since he had a clean 240T he thought, why not?...
[attachment=1]
[attachment=2]
Since it was originally mounted in a transverse position, he had to use a 6 cylinder oil sump and section it to use on this 5 cylinder.
It has all the S60 fuel management and emission control systems in place, and was able to get it past the EPA and registered in California! He used nearly all Volvo parts for the conversion. Very well engineered to the point that it looks original and factory made.
I'm not sure which transmission he used, but I think it is a 5 speed manual version sold in the European markets.
His first experience at Willow Springs Raceway told him he needs to upgrade the brakes next!!!

HAHA!! Bruce... if that's aimed at me, no. Heck, I can barely keep up with the D.K.K. stuff and that's merely a mid life crisis reunion party that was put on pause for almost three decades. But I'm stoked and proud to be a part of it. Because to me... it's the true essence of what VWs and Cal Look is all about. Translated: WALL-TO-WALL FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dating back to some time in the nineties, we needed 13 people to start the So Cal chapter of the V.C.O.A. (Volvo Club Of America) and I was one of those people. We all met at a Volvo dealer in Burbank and it came to fruition, thankfully. Back when I kept the wagon fully (read: engine, undercarriage, interior, etc.) detailed, I used to be much more active in that club and forum. I don't know if any of the old members are still there, besides Dave (Prez). Even so... if they'd remember me.

But they're fun cars, easy to make go fast, and very safe. Nothing like having a easy car to work on that's good for at least 500,000+ miles on the original engine. They tease me for mine... only has 300,000 on the factory engine from '87. Same goes for my other car group, but the only one I want to stay active in, is D.K.K. Out all of the car clubs I've been a member of over the years... it's not only my first, but my all time favorite. And I'm honored to be a DEEK for life.

Carry on with the non-VW fest, please. This is a great thread.

Great picture of a great car, Rick.
Why was this Porsche Indy car "great" to you Fred?
I'm not a race car historian, but I can google.  ;)

"At the end of the 1990 season, with only one pole position, one win at Mid-Ohio and no better than 18th at Indianapolis to show in 44 races over nearly 3 ½ seasons, Porsche pulled the plug on their Indy Car program".
http://www.motorsportsmarketingresources.com/short-stories/harry-kennison-postcards/porsche-indy-car-program-unfulfilled-dream.html (http://www.motorsportsmarketingresources.com/short-stories/harry-kennison-postcards/porsche-indy-car-program-unfulfilled-dream.html)

http://www.nytimes.com/1990/04/30/sports/a-disallowed-chassis-stalling-porsche-indy-team.html?src=pm (http://www.nytimes.com/1990/04/30/sports/a-disallowed-chassis-stalling-porsche-indy-team.html?src=pm)


afaik the Indy Porsche program was a bust from the start.
At one point AJ Foyt fought it and helped to have the Porsche banned.

"Porsche's decision to enter the Indianapolis 500 race precipitated a political battle between other entrants and the rule makers. Despite previous assurances that the Porsche engine would be accepted, last-minute rule changes prevented driver Danny Ongais from qualifying. Interscope, owned by Ted Fields, and Porsche joined forces on this Indianapolis effort. Porsche provided the powerplant and Interscope modified an existing chassis to accept the new engine. The engine for this car, with a water-cooled head and six-cylinders, evolved from the Porsche 935 and 936 prototypes. The present-day 956/962C Group C engine, which had been so dominant at LeMans and elsewhere, was also developed from this model. Porsche withdrew the car and canceled its Indy program less than a month before the practice sessions were to begin. No one outside of the Porsche engineers, Ongais and the Interscope team ever saw the car on the track, but in testing at Ontario Motor Speedway (a duplicate of Indy), the car was said to have been spectacular, breaking numerous track records".

Wow! That's so cool. I used to have to work on fifty footers like that. They were usually based on something
exciting like a four speed 70' T, with their tiny iron brakes and four inch wheel spacers. I can still remember the
smell of polyester resin and burning Pennzoil, just like real race cars. And how can I forget the nanocephalic owners
clutching their racey little steering wheels and stubby phallus like shifters, just like real race car drivers.
 
I sure miss the good old days  :D

A widebody on a Porsche is no ez job.
This one we saved..two others were so bad they went straight to the dump.
Many so called craftsmen out there...

Now if you think you have something comparable?
If you can drive and own a fast car I'd say bring it on...but only your keyboard is fast.

Hey Mike! Congrats on your ride taking up prime real estate of the mag. I was looking for it at my local bookstore, but no can do.  :(   Will look elsewhere. Diggin' the mega rear contact patch.

That was nice, thank you.
If you do find it lmk, it just came out so may take a few weeks to get over here.
The DRKC was a lot of fun. Rich Kimball, Hole family and Rick M and Frenchy in PHX were all very helpful and supportive of the concept.
A drag bug/cal bug takes a lot of nerve and luck to drag race at 12 flat or quicker.
The VW at half track with gusting crosswinds was a handful...then there was Art and I at SAC switching lanes at 100mph.
What a relief to find Art was OK. That is still the closest I have ever been to car to car contact.
Many memories from a lifetime of hot rod VWs. Imho VW and Porsche racing are both very exciting.  8)

C&P  :)
Rauh Welt tuning shop in Kashiwa City, Japan.  The owner, Nakai-san, has become the Porsche guru of Japan and creates a wide array of 911 track and street cars.  In a sushi bar you might here somebody say ”omakase,” which roughly translated means “leave it to you,” and it becomes the chef’s choice.  This often applies to the cars that are brought into Rauh Welt, as the customers will leave it up to Nakai-san and his crew to create the most fantastic Porsche for you.

The following of RWB cars (that’s what they are called, I have no idea what the “B” is for) is so strong that they often run their own track days that are filled with 911s.  Film maker Luke Huxham, who has produced a great film series on drifting, has turned his cameras and editing skill on one of the biggest Porsche meets in Japan.  Take a look to see some of the greatest Porsche machinery that Japan has to ofter.

As usual, the recent Rennsport Reunion was a BLAST. A few of the 500+ photos that I shot when I wasn't working on my friend's '71 911 S in the pits. Five days of pure racing fun and hanging out with old friends.

Porsche was the best host EVER and gave out these cool iPhone covers. I normally don't go for anything with the P-word on it... but this hard case is much nicer than the way-too-grippy-soft one that I had. One of the many benefits and perks of being invited to go along on an all expenses paid trip to be part of a pit crew.

Thanks, Nico. Some cool pics on that site, as well. The event was beyond fun... in between some of the races, they would play the background music to Le Mans (the movie) over all of the speakers throughout the track. Which made the atmosphere even more surreal. I was only nine years young when the movie was released... but at least I had a taste of almost being there, that weekend. Especially when they were running that group of cars. That's one five day weekend I will never forget. SO cool seeing Roger Grago, Ben Salazar, and Don Metz stop by our pit area to hang out.

"From 1968 until just a few months ago Steve B. in Ohio had the car.
It has been in his collection and is a time capsule.
Dealer demo car for less than a year. Raced for a few years. Stored for 43 years.
Kevin http://gunnarracing.com/ made sure as much of the original car was preserved."

Funny that you would gravitate towards that car, Died... it was at this year's Rennsport Reunion and it belongs to Roger Grago. You, my friend, have good taste in cars. I was so stoked to not only see Roger in Monterey (up north), but when he told me that he drove that car up, it made me smile even more.

Sorry, Died... I didn't get a chance to talk with the owner. But the badge caught my attention, also. Many of those early 911 cars are regulars at Cars & Coffee... I'll try to find out, if I see it again.

perhaps but not likely.  ;)
Here is my guess and a snap of a 3.2 I had in my 911, before I upgreaded to a 3.6.

Maybe Fred can grab a photo of the engine, might look like this.

SO much WIN!

His yellow Vanagon (background) is also cool. Earlier this year, I caught up to him on the 405 frwy. and we were already going at a pretty good clip. He looked over, smiled, then something happened that more Vanagons should be capable of... a beautiful sound emitted from the exhaust and the box on wheels accelerated away from me like I was parked. SCENIC! We talked about that day when we were at Rennsport.

Great photos, Christoph! We had a wonderful time meeting you guys and spending time together, that weekend.

And to keep the theme of this thread alive... a video that makes me smile, cry, and offers a little hope that I'll locate my '66 Bug, some day.

My best friend, Bob, had a car like the one in the video during the late eighties. Wish he would've kept it. Nothing quite like a factory built hot rod.

That would be very cool and hopefully, I can make that trip some day.

Died, I prefer coupes over Targas... but that's a nice one. Like you said, just bring down the front end to the proper stance.

This was a great morning at Cars & Coffee with the R Gruppe.

I'm sure that many of you have seen the Ferrari 312 PB engine build video. Although that one is gas powered and this one isn't, a very impressive display of ingenuity, craftsmanship, and pure talent. My favorite part is when he's making the crankshaft on the lathe. Pure genius.

Who needs chrome anyway

I'm a little disappointed that with all those stacks and fuel lines and distributors, there's only one alternator! Singitwithme! "One is the loneliest number ..."



Porsche 917 spyder with the one off 16 cylinder motor. never raced. this was to be the next evolution of the 12 cylinder motor. instead competition department went to turbocharging the 12 cylinder motor=917/10. 16 cylinder motored 917 chassis spyder car went to the factory museum where it sits today.

late '36 block; '34 heads; pre-war block-script Weiand manifold; Deuce brakes (mechanical), front axle, and wishbones; '37 transmission; Kelsey-Hayes accessory wheels; NOS '40s Allstate and Atlas tires.

This is the way a kid would've built a hot rod prior to December 7, 1941. A real gow job.

That's about the third gayest thing in the world. A few years back a company showed up to SEMA with a bunch of irrational manifolds like that.

But it's fitting for a boat-anchor engine like a 348/409. Worst chamber design EVAR.

Monza? crazy the lack of concern for safety in racing for the decades.
SLO hour north of LA.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBicDo04Uw0&feature=player_embedded
c&p

Wonderful footage of racing at Exposition Park Raceway in San Luis Obispo, CA in 1924. This track was located along South Street between Higuera and Broad Street. The movie "Sporting Youth" starring Reginald Denny was filmed here in 1924.

This footage is often attributed to Caspar "Cap" Weir, who was the Chief Timer of the track during its operation although that is highly debatable. It's more probable that Mr. Weir received this footage as part of a Universal-Jewel "leader" given to the El Monterey Theater in San Luis Obispo at the premiere of Sporting Youth.

Imagine going nearly 100 MPH in one of those rickety little cars with those skinny tires and mechanical brakes. More than a few racers died in their efforts.

Flow, that 6.3 liter SEL shot is pure WIN.

Back in the day the 6.3 Benz was the worlds fastest production sedan using the same V8 as the 600 series.  This was the first V8 Mercedes ever offered I think.

I've always wanted one and my heart still races when I get close to one.  One day I talked to an owner and he told me what a great car it was BUT he also added it was like the Golden Gate Bridge.  I said what do you mean and his reply was you start at one end and work to the other and then go back and do all over again and again and again.

We are a lot alike regarding those old V8 Mercedes cars, John. I still smile and try to catch up to them when I see 'em on the road. My dream Benz since I was in high school... a 300 SE 6.3. Convertible or hardtop. The latter has the best looking wrap around rear window and c-pillar I've ever witnessed on a M.B. car. European headlights are the icing on the cake.

I've always appreciated that era of Mercedes and consider them the best they ever built.  The stuff coming from them today does ZERO for me.  Don't know that I've ever seen or heard of a 300 SE 6.3 Convertible or Hardtop.  I thought the 6.3 was limited to the 4 door sedan and the 600 series only. 

I do know that they offered a 3.5 V8 in the early '70's in the model you are speaking of.  I had a wealthy Auto Haus customer in Costa Mesa, Roy Collins that bought a Hardtop new for 17K and I drove it and consider that drive one of the highlights of my automotive life.

Today I'm a BMW guy as I've been from the mid '60's and enjoy driving my E39 M5, a real rocket of a car.  Currently I need to thin my collection and this car is on the block as I never drive it.  Purchased it with 33K and six years later it has just turned 44K.  A couple of photos of this car attached.

Post by: Rennsurfer on March 17, 2012, 00:26:29 am
Agreed on the modern day M.B. cars. Total crap compared to their build quality from earlier decades. The new ones just don't drive as solid and I miss the character that the older cars have. Any of the M-series Bimmers are GREAT cars. Your E39 must an all out blast to operate/enjoy, John.

Pure WIN, right there. Such great little cars. Nice seeing the uncommon steel wheels for a change, too. Although a set of Alpina ones would compliment that car rather nicely.


Very nice..I had the model 323i euro model. it did have the 15" Alpina wheels, shifter items..but not the Alpina true model.. It was a fun little rocket!

Cool photos...Porsche clubs POC and PCA still hold track events at the Pomona.
The patched track can be tough on race car suspensions, street cars can survive it...
Here is a lap at the current Pomona track.

It is a Paulussen beradino

this car is a one off car built in the late 1960´s by German engineer Johannes P. Paulussen who came up with the idea of building his own sports car at the age of 17:

www.beradino.com
www.beradino.de

He designed and built the car all by himself during his college years.
When Paulussen turned 25 and finished college the car was ready to hit the roads.
After many years of storage Mr Paulussen pulled this beauty out again in 2009 after retirement and began with a few updates and refinements on the car:

http://www.motor-klassik.de/bilder/p...r-3964134.html.

The Paulussen beradino is actually three cars in one: a coupe with hatchback or notchback and a roadster:
http://img2.motor-klassik.de/Pauluss...4ca-521495.jpg

http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/610/beradino3inone.jpg

The build quality, fit and finish on this car is unpaired by any comparable private car project.
An impressive car, an impressive design and an equally impressive story of the man behind this project.

The last production year of the well built U.S. car. From then on, it got real stupid really quick and declined. My next door neighbor's daughter had '72 Nova exactly like that one (sans the high performance stuff, of course). Seeing one properly hot rodded out is... AWESOME. Thanks for sharing that, BeetleBug. Truly enjoyable to see a very well done American sleeper.

Nice black car but I'll never understand having non-period wheels. Corvette rally wheels in the back and Camaro ones in the front and that vehicle would be perfection. I've seen that at Cars & Coffee. Great array of different cars... something for everyone.


Title: Re: * non-VW fest *
Post by: Speed-Randy on June 29, 2012, 16:33:30 pm
Because with those brakes, rally wheels don't clear. I had the same issues with an el camino with oversize brakes. Other than the rubberbamd tires, those wheels look great. It looks like a pro touring car with modern drive train.


Title: Re: * non-VW fest *
Post by: streetvw on June 29, 2012, 19:00:46 pm
I agree it could do with slightly taller side wall on the tyres but other than that spot on IMHO


Title: Re: * non-VW fest *
Post by: Rennsurfer on June 30, 2012, 00:53:25 am
To each their own, but those are NOT tires.

More like wheel condoms. Fully useless and God help those people when they get a flat. Kiss those silly overpriced wheels bye, bye.

It's funny to see unfunctional low profiles like that on the street and hear the owners say, "Oh yeah... now it's like a race car." To which I reply, "Um... NO, people that track their cars actually switch to a taller profile when they get to the track."

HAHA!! Poor misinformed people.

That was an expensive car to build, needs some minilites.

The car, itself, is cool. I remember riding in those when they were new. That one could be a million times cooler if it had smaller wheels and bigger tires. Plus, the broken axle look is just utterly feckless and serves zero purpose... beside appearing like an non-functioning car. The rest of it is nicely done.

But, to each their own. It's not my car.

Nico, that silver car is interesting. The '90s license plate painted like a '60s one could easily be swapped out for a proper one. The wheels, however, look perfect! 'Bout time someone built a fully custom 911 and opted for a more understated wheel finish. Thanks for sharing!

Nah ... with a single cab truck like that it's better to keep your holster attached to the front of your seat for best accessability ... never know when you might see someone driving on the wrong side of the road!
I'm sure the "dawg" (spelled "dog" here (is that similar to this difference: "aluminium" and "aluminum"?)) is in the passenger seat.

From "the Golden Age of the American Racing Car" by Griffith Borgeson:

"You used to get hit with some terrific blocks and knots of wood. We all came in with pieces of wood bigger than kitchen matches driven into our face and foreheads. They'd go in, hit the bone, and then spread out. Then you had to remove them, of course."

I can't remember who wrote about this, but when the tracks got really bad they would develop holes in the surface. Sometimes kids would crawl beneath the tracks and watch the races for free by sticking their heads up through the holes, believing they could duck out of the way in time if a car was heading their way (and of course, the drivers were trying their best to avoid the holes, too). This unnerved one driver so badly that he stopped racing on any of the board tracks.

Here's a terrific Photobucket collection of images of board tracks and board track racing.

It would look better with a set of spoked mag wheels ala type 35...just a lot wider.

Wow MG -- My buddy must of been ahead of his time -- he built this Chevelle for the silver state race, never entered or raced though (BBC and 6 speed trans, full NASCAR road race underpinnings) and then hardly left his garage for 12 years -- I got to ride in it one time, 60mph to 150 mph UP a mountain road instantly-- sold 4 years ago at Barret/Jackson for $50,000 less than third what he had in it, speedo had just over 300 miles on it

Nice ride that would have hauled azz at the Silver State.
I'd like to blast around the track in that.
At least he got to enjoy it for 12 years even if he only put 300 miles on it.
Is this the same guy that had the stock cars for sale?
Heard he is a talanted builder.
I'd like to find a pampered pro touring car complete for about the same deal.

My buddies vintage Nascar drum brake class car.
No where near the performance of your bronze monster. ;)

Jack O is a long time buddy and 911 racer.
For some reason he's addicted to open face helmets and instructing at big willow.  ;)
Pre smog widebody 911 with a 3.6 is a very fun car.

Some pics of my "non VW's":

1956 Plymouth Savoy Club Coupe. 13k miles survivor.
1967 Dodge Dart GT. My first car! Bought when I was 12, finally got it back some time ago.
1965 Plymouth Valiant wagon.
1968 Ford F250 Camper Special. The one I use end enjoy the most..

Thanks Fred!

A couple more..

1965 Plymouth Valiant V100. The reason I love old Valiants. This one was a familiar sight in our town when I grew up but suddenly disappeared. 15 years later I found it in storage and took it home. Needs a bit of work but at least I know where it is..

1956 Ford F350 Flatbed. Old Norwegian workhorse. Currently off the road for some rust repairs and a drivetrain change but will soon be back to haul another load.

Street VW looks like a perfect day at the Historic car races.
Historic racing is a different type of racing.
Where car owners prefer to remain anonymous and instead celebrate the accomplishments of the original drivers.

The next 2 weekends here on the west coast are the Monterey Pre Reunion and Reunion ending with the Pebble Beach concour.
I'll be there for as long as my vintage race car is race ready.  ;)
My run group includes RSRs, 935s, 962s and others non Porsche GTP cars too.
Looking forward to sharing track time with this crowd at Laguna Seca for 8 sessions over 6 days. :)

Snaps from the 2013 Monterey Historics of me dropping into the Laguna Seca corkscrew.
Nice track and facility...back story of the Monterey Historics event...
http://www.mazdaraceway.com/rolex-monterey-motorsports-reunion

"The Pebble Beach Concours started out as a display of a few cars on a practice tee as an adjunct to the 1950 Del Monte Trophy races, also known as the Pebble Beach Road Races. The car show moved to the Lodge in '52. Originally, the show wasn't for "collector cars," but was just for a few nice contemporary sports cars. By the mid-Fifties people started bringing out classics.

After Ernie McAfee died slamming his Ferrari into a tree at Pebble Beach in 1956, Granite Construction's bulldozers were used to blaze the Corkscrew through the oaks to connect some Fort Ord roads into a circuit. The first race weekend at Laguna was on November 9, 1957, and the main was won by the legendary Pete Lovely in his famous Ferrari.

In my admittedly provincial view, the Pebble Beach Concours was not a "signature" event until 20 years ago -- and then, only after Steve Earle's 1974 track-party/race for Historic race cars took off and boosted the musty old Concours's attendance figures."

After 3 days of cleaning and removing everything from the car we returned it to the race shop Friday.
On the list New O rings everywhere (all 3 master cylinders and front calipers).
Shorter gearing for Coronado (from 154 to 135mph) so it will get off the corners on the Coronado airport track.
Weismann 5 speed, great fun rowing gears with no syncros.

Nice event coverage link, here is another. http://www.sportscardigest.com/coronado-speed-festival-2014-report-photos/
Qualified 2nd overall in the event Saturday morning, but that afternoon a DNF (suspension failure) meant we had to start last on Sunday.
Fixed it overnight and Sunday moved from last to 5th in the Sunday race, passing 8 or 9 cars on the first lap.

Maybe see you there?

At Coronado there was a red Karmann Ghia vintage race car entered in the event.
I was too busy with my own car to find out more about it.

I wanted to come out a play with you guys -- but by the time I felt my car was worthy, the registration was closed

 

++++++++++++++

Went over to friends house to help him tune his Truggie -- This was built from the leftovers of a Tacoma that his kid rolled over -- He has a SDS system and needed someone to drive while he modified the tune -- Who was I refuse some seat time in one of these things -- He has a decent dirt road near him that weaved in and out of some power lines for about 4 miles, which is about the right length for a nice power pull if you ask me LOL -- We went up and down this road for over 2 hours and then as we got to the far end of the road,,,, yep ran out of gas LMAO -- thank god for cell phones ,,,, a couple of calls and help was on the way ,, I really didn't want to do a 4 mile hike today LOL  It was a hoot sliding this damn thing around the corners -- and talk about eating the bumps and rocks at speed,,,, 20+" of travel is cooool

Who was I refuse some seat time in one of these things --

heck ya, I'd of done the same in a heartbeat!
In fact the only way I'd get in one those is if I was driving, at 5/10 speed.
Car control with the high center of gravity and and 20" of travel over rough terrain takes finesse.
I had a street legal baja bug off road pre runner back in the 70's.
Post some photos of it with the body on too.

In for service, no doubt for Rennsport.

2015 Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival.
Started the 1st session with a very loose car.
(http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s39/TedDrake/20150529_094511%20800x450_zpsjame621t.jpg) (http://s148.photobucket.com/user/TedDrake/media/20150529_094511%20800x450_zpsjame621t.jpg.html)
Found some grip after a few adjustments to...
...air pressure, front and rear sway bars, front and rear ride height, 4 bar and pinion angle changes, increase in fuel weight and new slicks.
End of the weekend the engine was reving slow so felt lucky just to finish the 25 minute race in 5th.
With 20 minutes to go the engine was soft but the gauges looked good so continued to the end.

My 911 mech Vic with Hans Stuck and the Alucraft 962.
Hans Stuck drove this car to 4th at daytona 24hrs...
Hans visited our pit Saturday and shared that the doors had to be bolted shut to keep them from opening on the high banks at speed.
I'm at :35 into the video cleaning the Alucraft red/white 962.

Very nice. The 4.5" Fuchs are a strange looking wheel from that angle tho!

Has anyone been following the thread on retro rides about the adventure to buy a 912? Well worth spending a couple of hours on it. Warning - gratuitous Porsche content!

I was working at the BAP/Geon store in Santa Ana one Saturday. A guy came in with an early 911. I had to go check something on it so I could get him the right part. As I'm walking out, I can see he's got a set of these hubcaps on it. As I was walking back in the store, I looked again at the hubcaps. I could see through the slots that the hubcaps were mounted on real Alloys. <smh>

Just got back from Italy and While there I did a tour of the Ferrari Museum----

The first building is the original shop where Enzo assembled the first cars -- It now displays a lot of the early racing engines and a few racing cars and a Ferrari powered boat

I spent a lot of time in there even though the building didn't have any AC, I was sweating so much I was melting LOL

 I loved the dual 4 barrel Webers on this supercharged V-12 in this boat

Video of us flogging air cooled 911s yesterday.

In video the still photos are by Kiki (Fabian's wife) the first is Chad McQueen on the brakes in his orange 911.
If you look close you can see his rear flare is dented on the top.
Chad was driving local mountain roads when a big horn sheep landed and jumped off his fender then over his car and kept running.

Nico Happy New Year!
Spent mine at the Laguna Seca with the old Vette.
Video of my buddy's new flat plane crank GT350.
Good practice for when we return in August for Reunion with the race car that is 25 seconds a lap quicker.  :)

Sunday at my buddy's for lunch with my favorite Porsche mech Vic Ofner.
http://johnstraub.blogspot.com/2012/02/porsche-944-gtr-003-time-withvic-ofner.html

Vic was removing the headers from the 962 to be replaced with new stainless inconel headers.
One of the last of the air cooled single turbo 962.

This 962 finished 4th at Daytona in 91 or 92 with Hans Stuck driving.
Hans visited with the car at the last Rennsport.

Hans mentioned the doors on the 962 kept opening on the Daytona bank at speed.
So during a pit stop the mechs ran self tapping screws into the doors and bolted them shut for the race.

Just sharing that #10 is on BaT this week.
It is a fun, safe and fast car to race!
The plan is to retire from racing the #10, and this fall start racing the #5.
The BaT comments at the end of the auction are sometime interesting/entertaining too.

the Rabbit or golf? with knock off rims $$ and aluminum? roll cage was radical.
Nice cars, not the typical who has the biggest/newest lease exotic new car show. ;)
I'd take in order ...
1 Audi quatro
2 red mini
3 white 2002


Title: Re: * non-VW fest *
Post by: spoolin70 on November 06, 2017, 18:13:44 pm
The Audi was pretty interesting and kept my attention for quite a while. It's pretty nimble too - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=INNzN2xrkRw
and a walk around of some of the features - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TOBm9-9ntpM

Sorry, no more pictures of the ghia.
I recall it being very clean everywhere but no turbo so I kept walking  ;)

Post by: mg on November 08, 2017, 14:52:48 pm
Quatro is a beast, raced well in the late 80s in USA road racing Trans Am and then IMSA GTO spec.
Rally racing is insane, so dangerous with narrow roads and no run off area.  8)

R Gruppe So Cal used our 911 for the club event shirt this year.  :)

2500lbs 760hp 8200rpm 18 degree V8.
29.5x15 Radial rear slicks, 27x14 front slicks.
Paint color is Porsche Grand Prix white.

I have watched a couple of this guys videos, Volvo with a 2JZ and gatebil are good but this is his most recent from Tierp Arena.
Rather than the racing, it's more a focus on the cars and engines, turbo of course and most not V8  :D
