The enthusiast world is full of “what might have been” illustrations and hot rods, but this month’s feature story is different, with a professor and his students designing and building a “Boxster Shooting Brake” as a learning experience. If the trials and tribulations of 2020 taught us anything, it’s to be grateful for what we have, such as fast cars and places to drive them. In “The Blues Brothers,” three friends bonded over their 911s and the freedom of long drives. A 1962 356 Super 90 caught the eyes of Gerry and Beth Curts, who were intrigued by the car’s original sea foam green color and restored it to how it was “In the Beginning.” Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and when Sierra Nevada Region member David Shelton saw a 2009 C4S in Nordic Gold (“Gold Rush”), he had to have it. David Toppin is the kind of man who, when he puts his mind to it, will teach himself how to paint, weld, and restore. His 914-6 GT Outlaw? “He Built It.”
