    A Christmas Cracker of some Porsche Banter with Jay Read to round out the year!

    Goodbye 2021, hello 2022. In this final episode of the year, I'm joined by my good friend and fellow Porsche YouTuber, Jay Read. Today we're talking about how our Porsche journeys have taken a few surprising turns this year and what next year has in store for our channels and the content we're planning... from Jay's newly acquired 986 Boxster, the goodbye to my 991 and renewed focus on my 996 Carrera project car, to Rocky Mountain road trips and returning to Tail of the Dragon... we have a lot of fun in this one. 

    As ever, thanks so much for supporting AutoAmateur with your downloads, likes, comments and follows. Everything, and everyone, is wholeheartedly appreciated. Wishing you all a very merry time over the holiday season and all the very best for the New Year. Cheers!

    911 Mods and Gearing up for Lüft 7 with Andrew at NineElevenSouth

    I'm little late publishing this week's podcast, but at least here in the US mid-west I can still claim that it's Friday, just! In this episode I'm back with Atlanta based Andrew Gladden of 'Nine Eleven South' from Instagram and YouTube. We're talking about 911 mods, specifically a run down of the cracking number that Andrew has finished on his 991 this year. We're talking TechArt aerokits, lowering springs, DSC controllers, painted brake calipers, rear bumper upgrades and MORE. Andrew has also recently been putting out a great video series called 'OG Spec' Garage Build where he has been transforming his aging detached garage into the dream spot for his 911. We also talk about the upcoming Luft 7 event in Indianapolis that we're both attending in September. Tune in, kick back and check it out!
