So good to see and feel a shop .. those tools shown at waist level.. i felt I could reach into my screen and feel the years and the hundreds of hours of use.. & that beautiful roll bar incapsulated by an aero cap we have the pleasure of seeing hand shaped .. oh boy.. Again Petrolicious brings desert to my eyeballs !
I appreciate your fine videos but particularly appreciate those that focus on family traditions and relationships. There are a lot of these kinds of videos on the web nowadays, but none are as nicely done as Petrolicious. When we get to hear from a guy like this, with the history of generations, it truly warms one’s heart.
Outlaw Porsche’s [ especially 365’s and early 911’s ] +1
Emory Motorsports – Plus one yet again
But err … a little history lesson . Dean Jeffries is credited with creating the whole Outlaw 356 movement back in the 50’s when he chopped the top … smoothed and rounded the nose .. dropped the suspension and stuck on some mighty fine wheels on his personal 356 .. errr … Carrera twin cam .
With now Emory keeping the flame alive as well as advancing the breed .
And … ahhh .. for those a little short of pocket change .. but long on desire . Consider a Beck Speedster/356 .. either new or used … and creating a little Outlaw magic for yourself . Not only will it look at least as good … but it’ll handle , drive and go even better than even the best Outlaw based on a real 356 . And … you won’t get chastised for cutting up an .. urp … original . FYI .. even the POC recognizes and accepts Beck replicas at their events / shows etc
For those well heeled amongst us .. well …. go all in .. either original or Beck and err …. put one of those POLO flat fours in the back … and watch almost everything disappear in your back mirror
Outlaw Porsches … the only way to fly ..
Hey TJ, You are correct in that Dean Jeffries was really the pioneer of customizing a Porsche in the 50’s. He along with my grandfather Neil [url=”http://www.valleycustomshop.com”]ValleyCustomShop[/url] Barris, Winfield etc were doing amazing things in SoCal in the 50’s and 60’s. I have always been inspired by Dean Jeffries car as he was bold and not afraid to have fun with that car.
What I was referring to was the “356 Outlaw” name and badge as that term was associated with customizing 356’s was born in the mid 80’s when my dad and I were hot rodding 356’s and often not allowed on the lawn at the concourse so our buddies started calling us the 356 Outlaws. We made up a badge that we have since put on the cars we build and select other builders cars (badges are not for sale) that follow the spirit of hot rodding and customizing a 356.
Also to note the Silver Coupe in the video has a 2650cc FAT 914 motor and the Aquamarine Blue Speedster has a 2.4L POLO 4cyl 911. Both cars have 911 rear suspension. 901 5speed gearboxes, and hidden disc brakes behind wide 5 alloy wheels. 🙂
