One of the great things about publishing The Garage is meeting gearheads from around the world and getting a peek into their lives and sometimes even a visit to their garage.
Reader Jack Olsen has sent us a pile of pics of his garage. Besides the fact that Jack owns one of my favorite Porsche’s of all time, a ’72 RSR, he also has a sweet space for it to reside. Jack has done all of it himself, including building the sweet work bench with the arched lower support you see in the pic above. Jack also has a full complement of shop equipment, which I’m guessing he uses for occasional repairs on the 911.
Unlike some classic car owners, Jack drives his RSR as it was intended: on the track. After you watch the video slideshow, be sure to click through to Olsen’s Youtube page where he has lots of in car videos from Willow Springs and Laguna Seca.
If you have a garage that you are proud of, send us some pics and a bit of info to thegarageguy at rogers.com
Ed note: Jack corrected me on the lineage of the car, which is actually a replica RSR, built on a 1972 tub. The true RSR did not appear until ’73. Not a big deal, but we know some of you purists might object to my oops!
