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 !
This afternoon, I was driving the Angeles Crest road and I saw an immaculate 356 parked on one of the over looks up there. The sun was going down. Recent rains had raised a ‘desert bloom’ in the hills. The few people standing by the 356 did not seem especially busy, so I stopped to find out what I was seeing, because it really did seem to be something special. And after a while, I began to understand that I was talking with Rod Emory, and that the car was one of his more considered efforts, very recently finished. The… Read more »
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.
Fantastic video! This one hits on many levels; everything from building cars that are meant to be driven to passing down knowledge and passion through generations.
Bravo! You guys just make amazing videos.
What an amazing video, thanks for sharing.
I’ve been a huge Porsche since I was a little boy.
You got a love the original Porsche the 356’s.
I think it’s great that you still are people out there that still restore the old skool methods.
I just wish I lived closer to you guysand would love to join your crew.
It would be a dream job come true.
How could you not love rebuilding and restoring and modifying Porsche 356’s.
Great job Petrolicious !
Please keep the videos coming consistently every Tuesday.
You gotta luv it.. if ya don’t, pinch yourself to make sure you’re still alive! Excellent clip!!. I had always admired the Emory outlaw 356 cars and met Gary way back in 2001 at the 356 Registry East Coast Holiday where I was the Concours co-chair. We hit it off immediately, especially when he realized that I was a hot-rodder/outlaw too, having owned three 356s and none of them being correct, not because I didn’t know what correct was, but because I thought correct was boring! Rod, you’ve made me want to dig my outlaw (57A)out of the back of… Read more »
Pass me a rag i’m drooling all over the keyboard….sweet
Another fantastic video about cars built and designed to be driven. The 356 Speedster looked brilliant and I loved the workshop: these places are increasingly rare in the UK. The skills needed to be able make up sections of bodywork are inspiring.
This video hits close to home on many levels. First off, it’s nice see somebody else with a Libert! 😉 … and hammers and other tools from generations past. Gotta love it. You mention many familiar vehicles. I remember riding around in my father’s Baja Bug back in the 1970’s. That Bug is long gone, and so is the 1953 Pre A (Okrasa) he had in ’68. I have but one picture of it (a Polaroid); original bent window, hand flared fenders to accommodate the wheels. I think he even gave away the motor to drop something else in! But… Read more »
Let’s see a scan of that 1953 Pre A!
Steve McQueen’s Meyers Manx (along with his 917 and his other nice toys) was at the Art Center Classic. That thing is loud and looks like a blast to drive. You guys ever take yours out for a spin?
Dad’s old ’53, my father and my son going for a cruise in the Meyers Manx, and even a shot of my Libert.
I LOVE IT!!!! All three those 356’s look like heaven! Well done!
Also well done Petrolicious for giving us videos like these. True car fans!!!
Love this! We have followed Emory Outlaws for many many years and they never ever disappoint. We always look forward to seeing Rod’s latest creation. I had the pleasure of meeting Rod at Laguna Seca during Monterey Historic week and he is first class stand up guy. Great video Petrolicious.
Wow. The sight of those three Porsches is one of the best I have ever seen. Great story, great video…aaaannd, so cool to finally see the where the birth of the Baja-bug took place!
Pure feelgood autoliciousness. Big smile on my face. Thanx
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 ..… Read more »
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… Read more »
I have ben watching Emory 356 cars sold and advertised on you tube. And all of them apeals to me and are well thought thru. Inspirasjon!
Oh man! I’m so envious of anyone who gets one of this Porsches. There was nothing better then seeing three lovely Porsches carve their way through the mountain side. The sound of these beast is giving me goosebumps.
