84 PORSCHE 911: Summer In The City

More preparation for the Plenty of Tarmac Rally in Kentucky: Organized the frunk, mostly so we could put two helmets in there. Never had to do that before.Of course, we forgot to take pictures with the actual helmets in there. But we did get a picture of the relocated jack!Then the rally got canceled due to lack of entries. Which actually proved to be good luck as the town that...

85 UR QUATTRO: It's Back!

Sorry it’s been so long since we updated this project but, thanks mostly to COVID, there was nothing much to update.Last time we talked was back in June of 2020 when we’d just decided to rebuild the bottom end of the engine. Phil, our URQ guru stripped it down while we shopped around for an engine shop that could and would do the work. The first place we took it...

RALIVAN2: White Wheels, Weigh In & Rally Lights

Four cans of white and one can of “Glossifier” were quickly acquired from our local big box hardware store and...

TIMSYBERIA: NOWO, Interior, Stickers & Empire Hill Climb

NOWO or Northern Worthersee is a European car show held in a picturesque riverside park in Frankenmuth, Michigan every September. It’s a great atmosphere so we often go. This year we took two cars: our 85 Quattro and, of course, the Timsyberia. The Quattro is always a hit but we were amazed how popular the Cayenne was. It even received two awards. We couldn’t be happier.We’re floored! Well, our carpets...
