Magnus Walker: Urban Outlaw.
Some may not agree with Magnus Walker using the downtown Los Angeles streets as a personal racetrack—and I know some of you are going to have a fit about his crossing the double yellow a few times in this documentary on Magnus and his cars by Tamir Moscovici. I don’t think I’d be able to resist it either if I was behind the wheel of one these machines on a lonely seaside road.
I’ll give the man this, he’s got excellent taste.
The modifications that he does to his long-hoods makes me want an early 911 in the worst possible way. You’ll see in this video a segment of Magnus telling a story of him as a 10-year-old sending the Porsche a factory a letter about becoming a designer for the brand; and getting a response telling him to give them a call when he’s a bit older. When I see Magnus hand distressing the leather pull handle he’s just finished sewing, I wouldn’t be surprised if Porsche AG is eagerly awaiting that call.
You can have your Singer, I’ll take Magnus’ lighter touch on the early 911.
