Porsche 911

“The Grey Ghost”

1969 RSR Clone(ish) - Owned by Michael O’Neal @_rennch_
"Intention was to pay homage to the original RSR in a monochrome fashion. I did all the work myself (Including rust repair, body prep, cutting & hand- binding the carpet and re-covering all vinyl in the car) except for the final paint and some of the hardcore engine conversion. While I was building the car, both of my parents passed away, so I mixed their ashes into the primer. Every choice on the car was carefully considered for period-correctness and aesthetic impact." Michael O’Neal​​​​​​​
