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.

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. A one game winner takes all featuring the best female hockey players in the world. Calgary went on to win the Cup with a spirited 5-2 victory in which both teams demonstrated incredible skill. The women’s game is so fluid and fast paced, making it a ton of fun to watch!

This one was not pretty 😦   Bottom of 3rd and the Toronto Blue Jays already down by 2 runs.  New York was on fire with multiple home runs throughout the game, while the Jays bats were very quiet.  Still, a great day at the ballpark with the family!

Downtown Toronto From High Atop CN Tower

This is one fantastic sunset view of Toronto from CN Tower looking north. We have the Fairmont Royal York hotel bottom right, Roy Thomson Hall, all the bank buildings, Toronto City Hall, and every other building along Yonge street until the horizon ends.

For those of us who love Toronto, here is a different view of our skyline, looking West from Spadina to Humber at sunset, including Exhibition and Liberty Village. The usual North view is all office skyscrapers, while this West angle is condos, and to my surprise, abundance of green space.
