Most look at Black Friday as a day to cash in on killer deals and maybe even fight a stranger over a discounted toaster oven. Hoonigan’s Black Friday may have a different take on the “holiday” but it doesn’t lack any of the chaos. Nissan and Hoonigan paired up to take over the abandoned Hawthorne Mall in Los Angeles, CA using Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck each piloting a 1000 horsepower 370z, to shred a path of destruction.
The pressure was building as the weeks closed in on our deadline for SEMA. The list of things to finish on Rusty seemed to grow longer by the day, with several major tasks still miles from completion. Byron Wilcox and I had set out to build the car ourselves, solely and without help, but as time went on, other friends such as Khalil Kassem and Eric Walton spent evenings at the shop helping to see the car through to completion for its big unveil.
The story began in a barn nestled in the Northern California countryside. Amidst the fervor surrounding Porsches this year, Dorian Valenzuela, of DV Mechanics, uncovered a Porsche 964 that had been parked, unloved for years, and remained undiscovered by the droves of eager Porsche buyers. In a previous life, the 964 was a dedicated track car. It’s interior had been stripped to house a cage, and trackside repairs and modifications left it in a pieced-together state.
Mike Koziel was present to capture the RWB Atlanta Porsche 964 on its trip from Las Vegas to Los Angeles following SEMA 2015. Check out some stunning visuals of a stunning car, featuring the all-new Rotiform HUR.
