Really fantastic, I echo those words of Arno Leskinen. Guys don’t stop what you are doing… You encapsulate the passion and dedication of each owner and their own story so beautifully. Tuesdays are a pleasure…..

John your fascination is inspirational.

Almost expected to see Magnus Walker pull in behind on the ramp to the 6th street bridge. Nice tribute to John Coffee as well. My bro-in-law had a great 69 912 that was a blast to drive. He sold it WAY too soon and I enjoy reminding him what a mistake that was…

True passion transpires and inspires. Awesome film that is even greater with the words and message Benton puts in it. Well Done !

Beautiful film. Benton is inspiring and why America retains her greatness… it’s the people. that Paris to Beijing ‘Z’ was awesome. If I wasn’t half way around the world I would have my cars with Benton Performance in a flash.

That was a wonderful film, one of the best you have done, which is really saying a lot. I was hooked by the visual of the skyline reflected in the gauges and it got better from there. Compelling story and fantastic images. This is the type of thing that makes Tuesday a day to look forward to.

The 912 was the sports car I always thought I’d be able to acquire someday. Can’t deny the appeal of the 911, but I always was drawn to the simplicity, minimalism, and unpretentious mature of the 912. Plus, I thought there was a remote chance I could afford one someday. Looks like I’ll have to let go of that dream but I can get a taste of the experience through this great little film.

I always liked the 912. The car is lighter than the 911s, and therefore arguably more nimble. The weight distribution is more even fore and aft. And you can use all the power on a public road without going to jail for having done so. I understand why the six cylinder cars are more popular, but for me personally the 912 was the one to have.

Wonderful translation of the relationship a man has with his car. It really can make you a more complete individual. The proof is in this mans narration of the storied path to his destination.

Great editing work with a wonderful flow and easy to follow narration. Love the car and much respect to the owner driver engineer mechanic, what a guy. Now if I could only afford some kind of Porsche. A C4 corvette is my current sports car for a while.

This is really cool. I’d be totally honest, I never really appreciated 912 because I always considered it a car that really wanted to be 911 but failed. But I finally get it now, especially after I saw the way the rev counter moves, I finally see the potential and appeal. I kind of want one now (not that I could afford them). As usual, a wonderful video,, very inspiring.

This is such a lovely commentary on both John Benton’s work, and, by extension the incredible strength and diversity of SoCal’s communities of industrial artisan’s. This region is unique. Detroit used to have these kinds of businesses, but no longer. And this is the kind of place that embraces and values these fragile little businesses where people push to extraordinary lengths what can be done with steel, aluminum, rubber and paint. So how many references to films with cars in them can we count? The Magnus Walker documentary, ‘Urban Outlaw’, certainly. ‘Repo Man’ perhaps. Any number of films with Nick… Read more »

This is just so inspiring. The car is inspiring, the people are inspiring, the cars are inspiring, the videography is inspiring. Cheers.

I grew up in Downey…my grandmother lived in SouthGate for over 50 yrs in the same house. Things looked so familiar in this one. And LA never looked so beautiful. I had a 68 912 for over 15 yrs…and sold it to my brother. So this film was a good one for me.
Another brother has my dad’s 912 that he bought new…and is still driving it around LA somewhere. It is nice to see something positive about the 912. Good memories.
