That Coupe is so sanitary! What interior color are you going with?

 

Brian in Murrieta

My wifey and I are/were big GoT fans, so we named the Coupe "Whitewalker"... That being said, I am using the color scheme from the Whitewalker character.

White, black, grey, and blue

Exterior: White with black accents (luggage rack and rims are black, minimal trim to no trim - might do bumpers with fog lights with blue lights)

Interior: Grey german sq. weave, blue leather (door panels, seats, etc.) - the shifter is white, steering column is white, knobs are black, shifter knob is black...

I‘ve been tracking @arajani build. Like him, I work in Healthcare and this year has been a little sideways to say the least.

Thought I’d share a few pics. I got her shoes on and moved her outside since I am finally getting the garage finished up. Once that is done... yes I’ve said this before... I’ll get to work on finishing this thing!!!

In the meantime, enjoy the pics of the first time she has been outdoors with tires on next to my daily and Eleanor... LOL!

Bryan!  

What's the hold up on that coupe? Looking good!  Be careful calling that car Elanor or maybe you're okay because it's not a mustang

I hope you and the family are doing well!

Ted

Family is doing great - thank you for asking!

Hold up on the Coupe is really just finding the time to get it done. There are some things I would like to do, but likely don't have to expertise so that means reaching out to Greg and asking for help/doing work.... then that means finding the time to get the Coupe up to Greg's and back... fitting in his busy a@@ scheduled... etc, etc, etc...

My Speedster is Eleanor... the Coupe is called Whitewalker ;-) Got it's name from Game of Thrones and the "whitewalker" character... that is where I got the idea for the color theme (white, black, blue, grey)...

Paul, we were over on Shell Point (our house was the last house out on the point) near the intersection of the "Savannah Highway" and Parris Island Gateway from 2005 to 2014.  Loved it there.  The Beaufort car club bought their place on Middleton, St. around 2009 or so, bought by a group of several members.  They still all get together there every Friday evening unless they're having a cruise-in at Grayco Hardware on Lady's Island.  The club Oyster Roasts in February are legendary.

@*LongFella We're going to need to see more photos of the garage, not just the bar.

I'm sure most remember the poster from one of our cruises. The other framed documents are from my Mom. They recently relocated and when cleaning their house here in SoCal we find my grandpa's receipt from his (and the family's first ever) Porsche. I guess I know where I get the Porsche love from! I never met my Mom's Dad as he passed away before I was born :-( Regardless, my Mom told me he had a huge love of Porsche's and so I know now where I get it from :-)

For those wondering, the first Porsche in the family was a 1973 Porsche 911T purchased at Allred Porsche in Glendale, CA. I've been on a mission to find the exact Porsche... or find the same year/make/model to add to my growing collection...

Something cool for garage walls.... when I was teaching auto shop one of the kids suggested we borrow  an old style overhead projector from the local Library. After projecting a lot of different Speedster photos onto a large blank white wall we found the perfect one, while I was over teaching  another class they followed the projected image with carpenter's pencils. I walked back into the shop looked at it and shook my head as they had traced a.... RIGHT Hand Drive Speedster as a joke ! I told them leave it and let's see how many ppl even notice,  then the kids painted the image entirely in black and did some accents in grey but didn't  fill in the image with colors. ... What a great conversation piece wall mural !  Longfellow your daughter would love painting within the lines :~)
