On any given day, we probably see more custom cars than most people do in an entire year. Most of it is new stuff, cars fresh from the factory with shiny new wheels, lowered suspensions, etc..
To be honest, they are somewhat forgettable.
And then we see a car built by Bill Schimmel. And when I say "built", I mean he really built it....from the ground up.
This is the kind of car we respect. A car that's been stripped to its core and reassembled into a leaner and meaner machine.
Plus, I've always been a sucker for the 993 chassis. In fact, it's going to be my next car....probably a C2.
We will be featuring Bill's Porsche in next month's issue. Our man Issac Mion did a fantastic job on the pics. Shouldn't be too hard creating words for this incredible machine. In the meantime, here's a brief rundown:
