Porsche.

August 31, 2010

As Professor Porsche (best name ever) walks the hallowed halls of his posterity, past each one of his sleeping creations, you can only imagine what’s going through his head. Each individual motor would rev as he clops past, the noise of rubber shrieking as the rear-set engine screams delight in his imagination, while reciting his inner factory-walk mantra.

Brief but good, welcome back Old Man.

Forgiveness Please.
