Porsche Madness in NC - Zuffenhaus

I'm always on the lookout in the Carolinas for interesting Porsche events, shops, and early Porsches.  A shop local to me, of which I REALLY need to go visit soon, is Zuffenhaus Eurowerks & Zuffenhaus Products.  These guys are doing some seriously awesome work on early Porsches.  They do everything from the basic Porsche work to building their own parts and body panels for the right look and feel as well as to pay proper tribute to legendary race cars.

Drop by and check out their new shop and product line in Monroe, North Carolina, and of course check out their website and blog.  Some top notch work here!!

Daniel Schaefer - Drive Heckmotor-Sportwagen

"Hello.  I drive Heckmotor-Sportwagen..."  Heard this before?

A little while back, some crazy European Porsche dork friends of mine said, "Hey!  Have you met Daniel Schaefer yet?"   Uhhh...  well...  I hadn't, but I was blown away by this guy's talent when I checked out his blog, Heckmotor-Sportwagen.   Photographer, Porsche enthusiast and builder, hell of a writer, oh...  and a cyclist crazy man!

Recently Daniel finished this perfect era correct, Albert Blue, early 911.  The "911 GT" is based on a '66 912 and is flawlessly done.  And what a feeling to be able to stand back and look at your own creation through the lens of your own camera.  Respect!

Okay...  so on with the post, before I get too wordy.  Check out his blog and check out his photography at and more here...  All pictures here are by Daniel himself.

Working Scale Porsche 911 Engine

Thanks to my good buddy Bean for sharing this with me.  INCREDIBLE!  And SOUNDS incredible!

How about a Porsche 904/6 GTS for comparison.  Sound is remarkably similar with those megaphones!

Amelia Island and all it's Sounds

Haven't had much time to post lately, but have had time to let videos run in the background while I'm working and Amelia Island footage is always my favorite to listen to... for obvious reasons.  So for those of you working and want to listen to something other than the usual tunes while working, here you go...
