Picture
EP1 black/green-blue Tartan used on the '79 924 Turbo
some love it and some squeeze their eyes shut in utter distaste—remaining true to my eccentric dandy tastes, I'm the former. but perhaps there's more too it than just a whim when Porsche chose to use textiles reserved for trendy pajamas and golf pants, it seems they understood the underlying message of what Tartan represented and fittingly adapted it to their cars.

Freud was full of shit. it's a known fact that he and his old lady's sister did lots of blow (coca, yeyo, white lady...choose your slang) together, so this certainly put a dent in lots of his theories...anal retention is one of them.

I do suffer from such a personality, but the reason I hold my mud back is quite simply because I'm trying to put one last thought or sentence down before my bowels threaten me with a rumble that suggests a bigger problem than finishing a line. so this 924 should make me cringe and obsess over making things "right' on it...but it doesn't. I like it the way it is.

such were the high standards at Neckarsulm that each 924 engine produced would be inspected by Porsche's own personnel at the plant and receive this stamp, "Endkontrolle," or "final inspection," before it moved on down the line for its eventual destination, the chassis.

whether there's a hiccup in the Middle East, some sort of commodities speculation, or a thunderstorm over the oil fields, the frantic scramble for alternative fuels will almost certainly be reignited as if a knee jerk reaction. so it was of no surprise, while the OPEC embargo was still a fresh wound, that governments in first world decided to weave some sort of plan to minimize their dependence on the black goop...precisely why the Federal German Ministry of research and Technology sponsored a project entitled "Alternative Drive Systems" in the fall of 1979.
