  1. Hey Chris,

    This may be a little bit long winded, and for that I apologize. Your son posted a link to your blog on Reddit, and as a car enthusiast, I figured I’d give it a shot. I was expecting a half-assed blog with American muscle cars and hot rods, which are far from my thing. I’m a die-hard fan of Stuttgart. So imagine my surprise when I see the page is incredibly well constructed, riddled with Porsches, and to top it all off, you’re a 4.0RS fan as well? I’m going to throw this out there so you know: I’m a HUGE Porsche fan, with my favorite being the late-model 993 C4S.

    I figured you needed to hear this straight up. This is an amazing blog. I’m going to go through and read the whole thing tonight since I just got done with finals. Seriously, I don’t really keep a lot of links in my bookmark menu on Firefox, but this is going right between Reddit and Gmail (those are the first two links, and my most frequented pages). So yeah, you got yourself a fan.

    Seriously, thank you. Keep up the great reviews. It’s like this blog was made especially for me. You’re awesome. And thank your son for posting this on Reddit, otherwise I would not have seen it!

    Best regards!

  2. Phil,
    Thank you. I have been in shock all day since checking my blog at noon to see how many views I had (13,000 +)…
    And thank you for being one of the many visitors who checked out digitaldtour.com on Wednesday.
    Regards,
    Chris

  3. I am seriously in love with this blog. For 2 very important reasons. First of all I love your humble and enthusiastic tone. The writing comes off as if an 11yr old (the passion when you first fell in love with the brand) is getting the opportunity to walk around each and every car that you photograph. Love it! The second – is the photography, its crisp and interesting, and well selected. Bravo! I will be a loyal follower and can’t wait!

  4. When I was 24, a friend was nice enough to lend me a 996 turbo for the summer as he had spent some time racing with me the years prior. 2 years later that car ignited an intense passion for me in relation to the brand, a passion I feel you share too. Fantastic blog and keep it up.

    Your sons a good dude too for putting this on Reddit 😉

  5. i would just like to say that this site is very well put together and you clearly have skill with a camera. as a lifelong porsche fan this site will be in my bookmarks for a while. keep up the good work

  6. I’ve really enjoyed reading over your blog (new reader) and must say it’s amazingly thorough and has incredible photography! You’ve got a real talent for this! Keep it up!

    Have you ever read Gary Vaynerchuk’s book called “Crush It!”? You really should check it out! Here is a video about it (it’s about cashing in on your passion and I think you would certainly benefit from reading it): http://www.amazon.com/gp/mpd/permalink/m2X9S8LNEBP84R/ref=ent_fb_link

    Oh and I have no affiliation with him other than I’m a big fan of his work.

    Really though, you seem to have this niche covered and I can’t wait to see more! Are you on Twitter and/or Facebook?

    • Mike,

      Thank you for your positive feedback.
      I’m glad that you are enjoying my posts and photography, and thank you for the reference to the book “Crush it”. I watched the video, and will be looking to read the book.

      Regards,
      Chris

  7. Ridiculously well done blog. You can thank your son for all the traffic.

  22. Hi, there´s a grey 599 on one of these C&C pictures – you assumed it as “canna di fucile”. It is grigio medio. Canna di fucile is a darker metallic color…

    BTW, great pictures!

    cheers from Germany.

    • Thank you for the clarification regarding my error in identifying the Ferrari 599 color.
      I never got a chance to ask the owner about the color, so had to go online to Ferrari’s website to research.
      The colors specifications on their site for canna di fucile looked close to the color of the car I had photographed, but obviously I was wrong.
      It seems you know your Ferrari’s very well, so please let me know if I make any further errors.
      Regards,
      Chris

  23. No problem, Chris. It’s not a mistake. Ferrari has an amazing range of colors, so its hard to see the difference sometimes.
    Usually people name grigio Silverstone as Canna di Fucile, but they are totally different, too.

    Really like your pics and these C&C events!

    cheers
