We'll have to initiate a RSPCP.
In the 90s my wife and I went to the Meadowbrook Concours d’elegance every year in August. Here is a 1995 pic of Ralph Lauren’s 1930 SSK. 35 mm cameras were less forgiving than today’s technology. I probably have a better pic somewhere.
I have no idea what is a RSPCP and google doesn't seem to know either. But I fully agree this is a sacrilege... and the sad bit is, it seems a "rather" common swap on the western side of the atlantic...
How about we bring this back to where it should be and all unite to buy this beauty instead?
Gone but not forgotten...
Hmm in LS in a Miata?
An LS in a RX7
An LS in a 911?
Out in Blenheim
Believe it or not it’s not entirely hated... the LS is lighter and only raises the CG slightly.
in CA where about a 1/4 of all 911’s live a 1975-1980 missing a motor it’s a better option due to smog laws.
Ehh, I won't argue that.
But still doesn't make it right hah.
I'd probably not have too much of an issue stuffing one in a Cayman though...
No, in an Rx7 is so wrong too!! It spoils the whole point of this car
I just had to share this Not mine (I wish) but...damn!!!
As a former rotary owner, I do agree.
I'm just a hardcore P-Car purist lol.
I can let it slide on the Mazda's as long as it is a nice build hah.
But personally I would never do it.
I agree totally!! Part of the Porsche magic is lost doing that
Timeless as it was in the 80’s, still gives me wood looking at it. Platinum too!
Thanks for posting this, brings back fond memories. Ralph has a truly stunning car collection, and I was lucky enough to work on his XK120 Roadster many moons ago.
Well thank you and you must be incredibly skilled to be chosen to work on his collection. I still have a calendar circa 2006 with some of his car collection. I will see if the Jaguar is illustrated and attach it to this message!
Yes, there were many highly skilled craftsmen (coachtrimmers) where I worked - not that I would include myself under that description . I think I worked on the carpets...
Ralph has an interesting watch collection also, with little or no interest in Omega, Rolex, Patek, etc. - but many Cartier and Panerai https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/a-look-inside-the-personal-watch-collection-of-ralph-lauren
Proving you can never have too much of a good thing:
The fabulous Giulietta collection of Corrado Lopresto - see Octane January 2020.
(Unfortunately these are not mine, but a friend's, so I still consider myself lucky to have a chance at having seen them once in awhile the white one has just been sold last month)
