84 PORSCHE 911: Summer In The Car Parks

Summer has just flown by this year. They seem to go by faster and faster. Looking through our Flickr album it seems we spent this one taking pictures of the car parked next to other cars, some of which were ours. I’m sure we did more than that though. Here’s one next to an 85 Carrera, with BRAID wheels, of course.  Here’s one parked next to a Ford RS200 replica,...

85 UR QUATTRO: DeutscheMarques & More

We entered the car for the DeutscheMarques car show at the Gilmore Car Museum. DeutscheMarques is the largest German car show in America and the Gilmore Car Museum is an automobile museum located in Hickory Corners, Michigan, about a two-hour drive from us. The museum exhibits over 400 vintage and collector vehicles and motorcycles from all eras in several vintage buildings located on a 90-acre campus. The museum claims to...

QUATTRO RALLY BUILD: Bits and Bobs

We are running out of things to do again so are picking away at bits and bobs before we send the car out for its wiring harness. Here’s a few little things we managed over the last few weeks:The shape of the curve on one of the rear arches has always bothered us. We got the body filler out and fixed it.We want a strut bar in this car so,...

RALIVAN2: Maintenance & Event Prep

The last time we updated the RALIVAN we had just had it rustproofed. Well, we are happy to report that in the 9 months since we had that done it hasn’t gone rusty, yet. We haven’t driven it much either. Perhaps only a couple of hundred miles. You guys are keeping us so busy buying wheels (thanks) that we can’t get out to events like we used to. We’ve been...

TIMSYBERIA: Son of Sno*Drift Rally

Last week we resumed our abuse of the Detroit SCCA Region’s TSD rally program by participating in their Son of Snow*Drift event. It was looking like being yet another Son of Mud*Drift but for a big winter storm that blew in the day before and made for a very interesting drive to the start and event itself. So, we faced some tricky conditions. Good job we have #properwheelsbybraidusa and #propertires...

89 944 TURBO: Shake Down

Because this car is not streetable (more on that later) we were itching to drive it aggressively so we grabbed the first opportunity we could find, a local Autocross.Our first problem was getting it in the trailer. Everything else we have loaded up into it has been a rally car or stock Audi so this was going to be interesting at best. We knew we'd have to remove the front...
