On my way to Culver City… there is a pop up car gathering on the rooftop of the parking garage 8850 Washington BLvd. Platform LA by @autoconduct Slide for details. @platform_la
We drew this up in 1998 right after Amy and I did the road trip towing our #eribapuck in my last post. I think it's time to actually build this in 2018. Perfect match to my bike hauler trailer. #towingporsche #teardroptrailer
Good times... #tbt nearly 20 years ago in 1998. @amy_emory and I just finished building our #EmorySpecial 356 and built in a trailer hitch so we could take a 4500 mile road trip to go camping, visit family, participate in Porsche 50th celebration at Monterey and most of all take our first family road trip. This pic was right after we pulled back into the house after our journey. @zayneemory was only 2 1/2 months old. #patientwife #roadtrip #poorqualityphoto
What are you doing Sunday Oct. 8th? Join me at the @galpinautosports 6th Annual Car Show in Van Nuys. I will be there with the #356SL and my '55 #EmoryOutlaw. It is free admission and fun for the entire family. ▶️ Slide for details. #galpinautoshow #galpin @drewphillipsphoto
With the #UTV take over in the #SandSports industry it was refreshing to see the @kibbetech @dunewhore #BajaBug at the @sandsportssupershow this morning. This thing is bad ass!
Had a great morning with @johnoatesofficial and his amazing wife Aimee. We set the driving position, hammered out the color details and picked out the lights and trim on his #EmoryOutlaw Cabriolet with lowered removable hardtop that is in progress. #hallandoates #porsche356 @jmuhtoss
With @amy_emory @zayneemory & @jaydeemory tonight enjoying the great sounds from our dear friend and fellow #Porsche #356Outlaw owner @johnoatesofficial Did you know John raced a 924GTR at the #Daytona24 in the 80's . . @hallandoatesofficial at the #StapleCenter
Grateful that I get to spend my life doing what I love… #carbuilder #automotivedesign #customcars #restoration #fabrication @bryananton video
Some #wheelwednesday action today on the #fjedwards #EnglishWheel - Today Branden is detailing up the wheel and giving it a fresh coat of @rustoleumusa gray industrial enamel. #toolrestoration - One of the things my grandfather always stressed to me is to keep your tools nice, clean, dressed and always at their best because they are what help you get the job done. Your tool is a direct reflection of the work that you do. For example if your hammer face or dollie has flaws it will transmit to your work. Grateful every day for the wisdom and skills that my grandfather Neil Emory #valleycustomshop passed on to me.
Good morning! Let's get after it. Click link in bio for the rest of this video. . . #carbuilder #craftsmanship #porsche #metalshaping #fabrication #welding @madeinideaville

Update.. bike is still gone but thanks to many of you we're closing in on the thief in #NorthHollywood. . . As I spent the weekend with the family and at church yesterday I reflected on my bike getting jacked. I could not help but think that there are thousands of people that are less fortunate than me that get their bike or car stolen and it's their only mode of transportation. It's unfortunate that there are those that feel the need to rip others off and often leave them stranded and unable to get to work, school or through life. I'm not sure what or how yet that I'm going to help others in the future that are a victim of theft to recover their goods or prevent it from happening but it's got me thinking.... #theftrecovery #lockyourbike #gpstracker #noho #stolen #neighborhoodwatch
Just came across a photo that @zayneemory took in 2010 of the #356SL right when we got it. This car after winning LeMans in 1951 came to the US in 1952 and after 3 races the roof, dash, and deck lid area were cut off and it was converted to a Roadster as seen in this pic. Our decision to restore it back to a coupe came after years of research and deliberation knowing that it had such a rich history as a Roadster in the hands of John von Neumann and later Chuck Forge. In the end we felt that bringing it back to its most significant point in time as the first Porsche to win at LeMans was the right decision. #LeMans #Porsche #restoration
Leaving last week in the dust... after a silly end to the week first getting my bike jacked on Thursday and then getting slammed into on the freeway yesterday I am feeling grateful and blessed to have an amazing family, faith, friends and good health. We all deal with a lot of crap in this day and age and things aren't always perfect so we have to make sure we keep everything in balance by focusing on the positive's in our lives and not letting the little bumps in the road get us down. Thx to my friends @targatrophy07 for capturing some video of the rear end on my #GT3RSRS when it was still a virgin. Thank you to everyone who rally behind me posting pictures and gathering information so that hopefully we will catch this punk that jacked my bike. I will update everybody next week.
🤦🏻♂️ Well... that just sucked! The good news is @zayneemory and I did not get hurt. On the 210 on our way to the fairgrounds to meet @jaydeemory and the others to celebrate her birthday I just got slammed in the carpool lane. I was rolling at about 5mph and a full size Ford truck hit me at about 40. Such a hard hit.. 😏 So grateful I was in the #GT3RS and not a car with crappy seats. I know most people would not be happy to get their Porsche wrecked but these seats provided so much support that I know it could have been so much worse. Thank you @built1973 and @Porsche for designing the best seat ever...
Happy Birthday @jaydeemory Now that you are legal driving age just think of all the fun/trouble you and I can get in. You have been by my side on the track, off the track, in the pits, in the shop, and in life! You have grown into such an amazing and sweet young lady. Always putting others before yourself and inspiring me with your unstoppable work ethic and talent. I love you so much Jayde and I am so blessed to have you in my life. #HappyBirthday #fatherdaughter #aerialist #PorscheGT3RS
Update on my #STOLEN @vintageelectric thanks to all of you and specifically @trims440 and @cdhanks as we have a lead. The bike was seen last night at 12 AM at the 7-Eleven on Magnolia and Tujunga. The thief brought the bike inside while he bought some beer (I'm sure because he loves it so much and didn't want it to get stolen 😏) and then immediately sped off on the it. Clearly he has rigged the ignition switch because he has it under power and I still have the key around my neck. I'm going to bring this new information to the police and see if there's a way we can get any video footage from the 7-Eleven. Not sure how much help they will be but I sure appreciate everybody's support and as you know this bike was a special design collaboration between me and Vintage Electric and it's not about the monetary value of this bike that has me bummed but the loss of something special and the first one. #northhollywood I take full responsibility for losing this and it was my own stupidity that left the bike unattended for less than a minute. Just a reminder to everybody that you have to be careful.
STOLEN! in North Hollywood at Post Office near Sherman Way and Laura Canyon. I let my guard down for 30 seconds and poof it was gone. Please repost if you're in the area and I'm offering $1000 reward no questions asked on its return. @vintageelectric right behind the cranks there is an ID tag that is bike #1
Remembering the good times with my first car. #throwbackthursday This video was around 2002 @thunderhillracewaypark racing hard with my pals at The CSRG vintage races. I built this car 27 years ago and raced it from 1990 until 2010. I think it's time to build another 356 vintage race car. I have the car and all the parts, only thing I'm missing is time. 😏 #ontherevlimiter #vintageracing #1953Porsche356 #EmoryOutlaw
