This is the new GRIPPY’S*GARAGE project. There isn’t a whole lot to be done other than things that I just feel like doing to make it cooler, but this is definitely an awesome ride. It’s a 1976 Porsche 911s “narrowbody” with a 1986 3.2 liter swap. It’s a great combo with the lightweight body of the older Porsche 911 with a newer 911 big flat 6. It runs like a champ and pull strong on the highway. I am excited to get it dropped down with some Rcomp tires and Bilsteins.
I love the simplicity of this 911. It’s similar to my style of doing things, especially with cars. I like how he still kept it very original in its styling, but he lightened the car a huge amount to bring out an even better driving experience. I can only hope to own one some day 😉
This awesome Porsche was just stolen in Japan. I hope it gets returned soon. I want to see more videos of it drifting and gripping the track!
One of the cooler videos I’ve seen in a long time.
I just love old school Porsche’s with ducktails.
Here’s a couple of inspirational videos that give a more in depth look at the lifestyle brand we know as Fatlace and its owner Mark Arcenal. I’ve been working with these guys since 2002 as Mark talks about in the video when he mentions drifting and how hellaflush came about. I was rolling around with my parents borrowed $2,000 Sony 8mm video camera, which by todays standards would be low quality, filming all the drift days and fun we had at our large BBQ Meets. I could go into more detail about then and now, but just sit back and watch the RWB and History & Culture videos.
I was just chatting with a friend the other day how crazy it would be to see a RWB Porsche just out and about on the highway or normal road. It would stand out like a sore thumb no doubt. Well my dream came true today. I turned on to the freeway and noticed a very white and wide Porsche up ahead. Then I noticed the red wheels and the hoonigan sticker. I knew for sure it was a RWB USA car. I sped up in my STI and right when I caught up with him we passed a Highway patrol car stopped in hiding. Luckily we were able to quickly bring speeds back down to 55. I cruised by him and snapped a pic and gave him a big thumbs up with a smile on my face. These cars are amazing. I’ve seen Mark’s Green RWB in person, and to see one on the streets now is just awesome!
