Ann from Cincinnati says:

I worked with Jim to buy a Porsche 911 Cabriolet; I’d been looking for a Cabriolet in great condition for about a year and contacted Jim. Working with him via text, email and phone was simple and streamlined plus he’s a very interesting guy who is genuinely passionate about cars and about a straight forward sales process. I’d never purchased a car sight-unseen from an out of state seller — so I had some reservations, however Jim said all the right things, produced all the right support and responded quickly. The entire process took less time than I originally thought it might and the car exceeded my expectations. Thank you again, Ann (Cincinnati, Ohio) 

D.L. from Florida says:

FANTASTIC! 

I highly recommend Jim with Classic-Car Store to help you find your next classic vehicle. Jim was instrumental in helping me find my 1966 Ford Mustang GT. The experience was so successful that I asked him to help me find my next "forever" car. Jim is very responsive, follows up and has excellent communication skills.   

THANK YOU very much.... 5 STAR GOOGLE RATING by Dennis Lareau, FL

 

HAPPY CLIENT

"I've known Jim Lowrey for almost 30 years and have always respected him as the most knowledgeable and experienced person I knew when it came to cars. Buying cars through Jim has made the process literally a breeze!  Even more important to me than his expertise is his honesty and integrity. I would recommend Jim to anyone wanting to buy or sell a car!"  MG, AL

HAPPY CLIENT

Jim, it was nice working with you.  I am not sure if I will do anything to the car (1970 GTO), but it really is a lot better car than I thought originally because the price was so good.  I am glad I came to look at it and have my mechanic check it out.  I will keep up with your cars because I still want to add to my collection as I can.  Thank you again.  AB, AL

Ken Block will race at the 2022 Pikes Peak Hill Climb in a purpose-built Porsche

Ken Block will race at the 2022 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) in a purpose-built Porsche 911 called "Hoonipigasus."
 

Built by BBi Autosport, the latest Hoonigan vehicle is mid-engined, all-wheel drive, and boasts 1,400 hp, according to a press release from Block's Hoonigan Racing Division. It also features a specially designed transmission tunnel that goes from shoulder height down to the front axle, which helps lower the center of gravity, Hoonigan claims.

A massive rear wing helps compensate for the thin air at Pikes Peak, where racers start at 9,300 feet above sea level and climb to 14,115 feet. Despite its porcine name, the car weighs a fairly svelte 2,204 lb. It also has GPS-actuated height-adjustable suspension that uses telemetry from the previous year's race.

As for the name, it's reference to the Porsche 917/20 "Pink Pig" that raced at the 1971 24 Hours of Le Mans. After seeing the car's engorged bodywork (the result of wind-tunnel testing to improve aerodynamics) the race team gave it a pig-inspired livery complete with marks for the different cuts of meat on an actual swine. The Hoonipigasus gets its own version of that one-off livery.

The 911 will race in the Pikes Peak Open (PPO) class, which includes few restrictions other than those related to safety. Block and BBi Autosport will be gunning for an overall win. The latter already has eight podiums and five class wins at Pikes Peak.

Block previously ran the Pikes Peak course in his "Hoonicorn" Ford Mustang for the 2017 "Climbkhana: Pikes Peak" video. He also entered the PPIHC in 2005 in a Group N rally car.

The Hoonipigasus is one of several projects Block has commissioned since ending his exclusive partnership with Ford in 2021. He's been clearing garage space by selling some of his Blue Oval rally cars.

Block is also tied in with Porsche's Volkswagen Group cousin Audi. That partnership focuses on electric cars, and has already produced an all-electric tribute to the Audi Quattro S1 that once dominated Pikes Peak. Dubbed Audi S1 E-Tron Quattro Hoonitron, that car will appear in Block's upcoming "Elektrikhana" video.
