    Default I'm a car guy, so to me this is pretty freakin' awesome

    A web site called Petrolicious produced a video on my car, and also my garage. I get to see video of me driving, and video of my car on the track -- all stuff I could never shoot as well by myself. It's all stuff I think other car guys will understand. So if you've got nine minutes open, click on the image below to watch it.

    And let me know what you think.

    Jack -

    Nice! I guess I understand why you don't want to sell your 911. But if you ever do . . .

    Bravo Sir, absolutely awesome.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    great video. You mention you are a fiction writer by trade. May I ask what you've written?

    Besides the Porsche and the incredible garages (props for DIY by the way) i find it interesting that you have the name of a very well-known fictional author! Coincidence?

    Truly inspirational, thank you for sharing!

    My garage was no where near that well configured, my old Miata was a similar build. I owned it for the better part of 12 years. I parted ways with it this past summer. Although I am glad I sold it to a close friend and still get to see it from time to time, I do still miss it. I am hoping my next car, an e30, will give me the same joy and teach me new skills as I configure it over time.

    Jack's a Rock Star, notwithstanding the fact that he is not the same Jack Olsen who wrote great crime novels, and who passed away in 2002.
