Vintage Porsche 911 named ‘Malaysia’ re-imagined by Singer Vehicle Design

vintage porsche 911 malaysia reimagined singer vehicle design
Do you know this car? Let me share a little… Car enthusiasts love the Porsche 911 from 1989 through 1994. Buy one of these pre-owned for between $65K and $170K Canadian and then give it to Singer Vehicle Design in California who will custom restore – or reimagine as they say – as a one off for an additional sweet $475K up to $1.8M US. This here is ‘Malaysia’ (cars get named after global cities or countries) and I found her at the Toronto car show courtesy of Pfaff Automotive Partners (a Toronto auto dealer group). Now I knew of Singer before hand and in my dreams have commissioned a car from them… but in real life not so lucky! Next best is to be able to photograph one. I would say this is a bucket list item accomplished. NOTE: If you are the owner of Malaysia and have found this blog post, contact me and I’ll get you a copy of the picture.

Someone’s Very Merry Christmas House In Mississauga

Merry Christmas and best wishes to your family and friends. I tried to get the natural elegance of this house to come through, and not sure the picture does it full justice. Light snow and low clouds are providing the nice glow. And kind of wish I could pull that telephone pole out… but maybe that’s what helps make this house feel ‘real’ in the neighborhood.

Day break over 16 Mile Creek

We are a few minutes after 8am on Saturday October 26, standing on the Dundas street overpass looking south down 16 Mile Creek. The sun came over the trees about 15 minutes ago, slowly bringing light and life as the birds got going. Mist from the creek rose and a sun haze stretched out across the tree canopy.

End-of-day blood orange sun

Yes this is real 🙂 We watched from the back deck of the house. Not often the sun burns blood orange while the sky stays deep blue.  Great way to end the day!

This is how you celebrate a goal at a soccer match… with smoke bombs, drums, oversized flags, and lots of cheering! Hamilton scored the tying goal for Toronto FC at 90+5 minutes of the game on June 7, 2019.  Find the guy in the red/white/black shirt holding a smoker stick 🙂

This is Clarkson Cup pre-game warm-up for the Calgary Inferno (red jerseys) and Les Canadiennes de Montreal (white jerseys) at the Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto yesterday.

This female American Robin chose the fireplace vent out back of the house as perfect location for this year’s nest. She has two chicks, who on this late evening, were trying to be as vocal as their mom!
