Urban Outlaw, interesting doco and I know it's really cliché but I found his story rather inspiring.. Magnus Walker, a free-spirited mechanic who turned a hobby for customizing classic Porsches into a successful business…

Is it just me or does this guy come across as a poser ? Good on him and all of that for creating his business or whatever.. But nothing will top this for inspiration from a true pioneer:

Cool video, unusual character! Even though i'm not into his 'style' I admire how passionate he is about 911's.

Nakai-San is still the best...

Thought it was a great video, and doesn't come across as a poser at all - I mean he makes leather door handles ffs!

I dont think you can compare him to RWB, both completely different

so true, great to see two completely different styles working on these classic machines.... with their own unique styles and outlook. Shame not everyone can take their jdm goggles off. Though like Nakai says 'Variety in taste is a good thing..'

yep two completely different paths.
one bolts cartoonishly obscene guards and oversized herrafrush wheels onto stock 911's.
the other does nut and bolt rebuilds on longhoods with period correct inspired mods and go fast bits.

impact bumpers cars post '73 have thick middle bumper incorporating rubber bump strip, indicators, and rubber 'bellows' on the end, for crash impact laws. the front valence bolts on underneath

pre '73 cars have a slimmer one piece bumper and front lip combined, with the indicators incorporated into the front wings/quarter panels. because the bumper is slimmer and combined with the lower valance the bonnet comes down further forward, hence 'longhood'

there are other differences but that's where the nickname came from ;)

That VW is sick... I'm stealing the 'Belt holding down the bonnet' idea.

Yeah I know, British race cars and what not still use it. I just hadn't seen it on a more modern car before. I'm doing it :cool:

It's more modern then the Pre 1940 British race cars that the straps originate from.

Not really a car documentary but everyone needs to watch the Senna documentary, available from your preferred torrent site.

Incredible footage. Compared to today's F1, you can just see how much these guys were fighting their cars.

Also really gives you some good insight into the man and some of the politics that were going on back then (and still now I'm assuming).
