Walking through the paddock at Laguna Seca, this 550 Spyder caught my eye instantly. It's patina, exquisite, looked as if it had campaigned the circuits for years.
It wasn't until I'd visited Russ Rodriguez's Fibersteel shop in Azuza, CA that I realized it was his personal creation. Basing his decisions off of a real Porsche 550 Spyder, Russ set out to create something very special. Whether this particular 550 came from the Porsche factory men in the 50's, or a few craftsmen in CA, this Spyder is worthy of mention.
The subtle lines on this particular car are laid out as if it's been continuously racing as a very fast speed and the paint, oil and fuel has slowly over the years seeped across it's body lines with the most masterful painterly technique.
Time has truly blessed this machine with the most natural and perfected patina only time can attest to.
We’ll keep you updated.
