Films: One Car to Do It All: Jack Olsen's 911

One Car to Do It All: Jack Olsen’s 911

More often than not, classic car owners deliberate whether to use their cars as daily drivers or keep them as garage queens.  Why can’t one car be everything?  Black Beauty, Jack Olsen’s Porsche 911 RSR, gets the royal treatment in The 12-Gauge Garage, but it also proudly wears rubber on the street and the track.

Jack built an enviable shop out of a suburban, two-car garage and worked on it until its engineering, design, and function matched that of the Black Beauty, a Porsche through and through.

Jack’s attention to detail is amazing, and he is a very friendly guy. Out at big willow during one session I noticed Black Beauty Stalking me.

Jack later confessed to me that he wanted to build a firstgen Camaro for track duty but a 911 came along first! So cool! Check out the video from… Read more »

stories like these are why I choose to be a petrolhead. yes, I probably have 1 too many cars, and yes they take up waaay too much space, but well worth it when you take a drive on a nice day. awesome Porsche but equally awesome garage!!!

This short film made me realise how special Petrolicious is. I expect this website to grow exponentially in 2013 for this reason.
