"Old cars need to be driven"

June 2016

If you have not yet discovered the website/podcast called CarsYeah, it is worthy of a visit (or two). Conceived and hosted by Mark Greene, CarsYeah consists of a series of interviews with inspiring automotive enthusiasts. Numbering over 500 to date, the interviewees range from the young to the old, from the great to the works-in-progress.

Our very own Alex Finigan talked with Mark about his early passions and how he and Paul built a business out of a simple philosophy: “Do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life." Listen to Alex tell his own story at CarsYeah.

Derek Bell drives the Porsche RS-60

May 2016

We admit it. We are huge fans of driver Derek Bell, of looking through the windscreen while traveling a famous race course and, most especially, of the sounds of a Porsche being put through its paces.

The excellent Revs Institute shared the following in a recent email: The Porsche 718 Is A Living Legacy

Porsche & Petrolicious asked if we could send our 1960 Porsche RS-60 Spyder to Sicily and have the famous Derek Bell drive the old Targa Florio race course. Talk about an opportunity too good to pass up.

Here is the video Petrolcious produced, enjoy!

“[Paul Russell and Company] is a wondrous place that turns old cars into brand new cars. Inside, it feels like equal parts modern hospital, university library and automotive museum. What it does not feel like is a garage. … The world's most desirable cars are being worked upon — from bare body shells and bare chassis to completed masterpieces returned for tweaking.”
