I've been steadily putting together a wish-list of things that I intend to own, try, and do as I continue my ascent(descent?) into adulthood. In the own category is a classic car that I can drive around the city in style, fix up, leave to my kid or go out in a blaze of glory in. I've owned several old cars in the past but none as cool and iconic as a 60s era Porsche 912. Now I know purist will swear by the 911 as the true Porsche but the 912 was basically the same car minus 2 cylinders and from what I learned cheaper and more available than it's pricier iconic cousin, the 911. I've seen a few of these cruising around my neighborhood and have fallen more in love with each pass. What's on your list?


  1. The one second from the top, I'm a fool for red leather interiors.

    I too have been wanting a classic car for quite some time. The Porsche is definitely the more approachable classic, although I do highly favor the pagoda top SLs of the mid 60s. My uncle has one in red that is mind blowingly cool.

  2. i have always wanted a black ford capri, not that all or a proper classic. around 86/ well nice above!

    I too have wanted a 912 for a long time and last year I got one, 1966 912, it is as amazing as you would think.
