  • Magnus Walker’s 964

    October 22, 2019 by

    He’s a divisive figure in the World of Motoring, but love him or loather him, he builds some lovely Porsches. From his legendary Car 277 to this, his latest 911 Hot Rod; a 993 Engined 964. The simplicity of this car is what appeals to me the most. Sure, there is a lot of detail;… Read more

    October 22, 2019 by

    They may have not been good for Mogwai, but when it comes to safety on the roads, Bright Lights are definitely best, and one of the failings of Old Cars is the Lighting.
