Back to Daddy

Blame it on me. I am a bad person. I abused my 1972 Pontiac "LeSupra" LeMans – I left it outside.

The reason for this inexcusable outrage is I was shilly-shallying how to proceed with this project. When I brought the Pontiac to Oliver "Style Deluxe" Kaps, our intention was to do some body modifications and to create a mind blowing paint job. But in the meantime we figured out that there was still too much technical work to be done. As it would be batsh*t to paint the car first and tear out the drivetrain afterwards, I said: "Er ... wait a moment, let me think ...". This moment took me far too long, which is obvious when you see the pictures above.

Another thing was that Michael Wolf, the Dr. Frankenstein behind this incredible engine swap monster, never finished his work. And it was also me, who is responsible for this. I wanted to drive that car, although I knew it was not finished. To cut a long story short: the car just returned home to West Coast Resto, so Michael Wolf can finish his masterpiece. Which was high time I did this.

Back from the Dead: Rusty

I just blogged about Mike Burrough's BMW E28. Mike released a video to pay his last respect to "Rusty" which deeply impressed me. A few moments after the article was published I received a comment which said that Rusty isn't dead. SHAME ON ME - I am uniformed! I should visit more often, DAMN!

But what blows me away isn't only that fact that Mike apparantly burried his car on pet sematary. It's more that it resurrects with a twin-turbo Toyota (Supra) 1JZ-GTE stuffed in its engine bay. Well, that makes me feel warm all over ...
