There’s something inherently special about the prototype racers of the GTP era. While modern prototype racing carries the torch, there’s something far more relatable, tangible, and approachable about the Group C and GTP machines of the ’70s and ’80s. Representing the earlier years of aerodynamic technology, their shapes and forms felt somewhat familiar, and their running gear was purely mechanical.
Part supplies can really dictate ownership experience of classic cars. With my unique old ’80s Mitsubishi Montero, I’ve become painfully familiar with the feeling of dismay when met with the dreaded ‘No Longer Available’ designation while hunting for the last little part to complete a job.
While standing trackside, with camera in hand, I often find myself musing on races of the past.
As we wind down from the frantic, Porsche-filled weekend of Luftgekuhlt, it seemed timely to present a Porsche 935 desktop wallpaper to get your week started off right.
I first discovered the car while mindlessly wandering through the internet, pounding in Mini-related search queries in a never-ending hunger for Mini photos for my archives. The little yellow Mini seemed to sit a little bit lower than the rest, and a local SoCal shop name was emblazoned on the windshield, but for years the car remained a mystery.
