Dom Miliano

 With the advent of the ubiquitous digital camera, just about everyone these days fashions himself or herself as the next Ansel Adams. But the rules about what makes a good picture and what constitutes “dreck” did not changed when we went from using light sensitive silver crystals to capture our images to using electrons. You still need good composition, good lighting, proper exposure, an interesting…

Porsche 911R

1967 Porsche 911R

 

When a car maker with a reputation like Porsche's produces a new competition car, journalists take note, competitors get nervous and customers line up with cash in hand.  That's because Porsche has a long history of building fast, reliable cars that can be raced with great success.  And this is why the 1967 Porsche 911R is such a difficult model to place in either the production or racing strategy of the German automaker.  The reason…

The 2005 Ferrari Superamerica

 What is it about a car that speaks to a potential car buyer? For many, it’s price.

Mid-Life Crisis Racing - Especially for you Porsche Guys and Gals

Mid-Life Crisis Racing
