Films: The 911's Allure Is a German Thing

The 911’s Allure Is a German Thing

Everybody has their “thing.” For John Willhoit, it’s certainly a German thing. For the past 37 years, he and his custom 1971 Porsche 911T have been Stuttgart’s outpost in Los Angeles County. Whether in his shop restoring classic 356s and 911s or on the road thrashing his own rear-engined machine, Willhoit’s German thing is a good thing indeed.

Very nice.
Mr. Willhoit, your shop looks nice and tidy.

I have one old, faded picture taken in 1968 of a 1953 Pre A coupe my father owned. He told me he picked it up for $200.
Bent window in front. I’ve never seen another like it.
To think of all the cars that got away…

Well done on both the film piece, as well as finally moving the business model with embedded adverts…

I planned an even longer Le Mans intro, but sadly I was starved for time. What a film, thanks for noticing!

Having met a few Germans over the past few years including a few who worked on my house, they are very particular, in the best of ways.

I owned two 912’s, a 67( rust bucket) and a 68 ( hopeless smog apparatus) still fun to drive!

Love the opening ‘homage’ to Steve Mcqueen’s Le Mans, and another great video. The steelies look really cool on the 911.
