WEEKEND DOWN SOUTH

The weather report promised a sunny weekend, I had to go and get some Porsche parts anyways, my parents were already there and we had no other appointments...! Hop in the car and go...towards the bavarian alpes!

After a short stop at the "Chiemsee" I went to some friends of mine to source some Fuchs rims!

They are 2 brothers, one is very heavily into vintage Porsche restoration and racing and the other one is...

...the person who not only owns the most BMW M1 race cars but also has the original molds! He used to be a BMW Motorsport mechanic for Hans Joachim Stuck back in the day! This little racer is being prepared for the Jim Clark revival this year!

MONDAY TO WEDNESDAY

The last couple days were very busy even though many people had carnival holidays. We used that time were the phone only rang occasionaly to revamp the shop and push the work on the projects in the workshop!

DSCF4276

Silivia´s summer ride finally is complete! The hardest part was the choice of wheels and springs! We had to keep it comfy but it needed to get a lot cooler! I think it´s the only CUBE in Germany! There are only a few with sunroof and even fewer of thze special EVO edition with special paint and racing stripe!

DSCF4277

After 5 years the shop needed a makeover!

It´s far from being finished but it already looks so much nicer!

FRIDAYYYY! CRAZY FRIDAY!

Maybe it´s because this is the friday before carnival in Germany that so many funny things happened!

DSCF3324

Dr.Jörg and nurse Jimmy (any name is better than Kevin) discussing the fit of the new side panel!

DSCF3335

Short time after that the full transformation followed!

DSCF3336

Never knew that Jimmy is a Drag Queen!

PINK LADY IS BACK

DSCF3338

Friday was the day to take it back home after 15 years!

DSCF3339

DSCF3342
DSCF3361
First on the list was to take everything "YELLOW" off that could be bolted or scraped off! The HOT ROD signs are hillarious! Sadly the air brush painting doesn´t come off easy!

DSCF3370

Max didn´t care about yellow wipers and purple switches that the taste free last owner added! He loved the custom dash!

DSCF3380

This is SAM! He built the Lady in 1988! He was surprised that the body is still in good shape! He one and only true love!

DSCF3383

Seconds after Silvia asked Sam: "WHY PINK????"

 

WAR IS NOT HEALTHY FOR THE US NAVY!

Our neighbour across the street took delivery of a little bit of wood!

It´s not that his drive way is too small...!

A very loud noise that was!
