For years, we’ve longed to join in on the absolutely incredible Goodwood Members’ Meeting. As is tradition, however, we’ve missed it once again, instead forcing ourselves to enjoy from afar. Luckily for us, though, Peter Aylward has put together an incredible collection of photos. The collection is so large, in fact, that we’ve been forced to split up the 101 photos into two individual sets. Today, we invite you to take in Part I.
When building the StanceWorks “Parts Car” E28 last year, brakes stood as one of the more interesting hurdles of the project. Big brake kits aren’t exceedingly common for E28s – understandably – which means more often than not, the E28 community resorts to “OEM big brake kits:” sourcing larger brake calipers and rotor packages from other BMW models that just so happen to bolt up.
It was two years ago that we were given the chance to showcase Daniel Schaefer’s talents, put to use on what he dubbed the 911 GT: a 912-bodied race car that embraces everything we’ve come to love about the 911, from its heritage to its aesthetics. Today, Daniel is proud to unveil his latest build, a 1970 911T that harks back to the S/T FIA Group 4 racers of the era.
We’re now one full week into summer, and we can confidently say we’ve all been waiting for it. The sun stays high in the sky, the nights are warm, and for most of the country, the inclement weather is finally at bay. For all of us, it’s finally time to enjoy our cars. That is, of course, unless you’re one of the lucky ones here in California where we enjoy our cars all year long. Nevertheless, we’re glad the rest of the country is ready to join us.
At first glance, Chris Gonyea’s ’71 Alfa GTV may leave something to be desired, depending on your tastes. It’s not quite the sight for sore eyes one might expect when introduced to an Italian classic, but Chris is well aware of that. In place of shiny paint, you’ll find patchy primer and epoxy. The only shine the car offers is from the metallic Dynamat that lines its interior, mostly concealed by interior-delete panels and cracking old leather bits.
