Hello world!

Welcome to my blog. My name is Peter and I live in Manotick, Ontario which is part of the City of Ottawa. Many people know me as “KILRWAIL”. That is the vanity plate I have on my 1977 Porsche 911S, which I use primarily as a track car, although it is licensed for the street. I also have a 1978 Fiat 124 Sport Spider, which I bought new in August 1978 while living in Montreal. The third resident of Fearless Garage is a 1993 Mazda MX-3 which I use for navigational rallying. My shop was named Fearless Garage by my brother Rick, after I rebuilt a broken camshaft timing dowel on the Mazda. I am willing and able to tackle almost any job on all the cars, including brakes, suspension, electrical and engine work. The exception is the Porsche engine, which I leave to a specialist – there are too many complexities in there to fool around with! Outside the garage is a 2002 Dodge Ram 4×4 pick-up truck, which is used to haul the cars to various events on an open Miska trailer.

This blog will contain descriptions of my experiences in many different events, varying from track days to rallies to outings in the Fiat with the Italian Car Club of Ottawa and/or the Fiat Lancia Unlimited club. Many such activities are recorded in a book I published in 2008 called “Owning an Icon…and DRIVING it!”, which is a general sort of memoir (so named by a book store owner), but aimed at Porsche owners who have yet to take their cars to the track. The book is available by sending me an e-mail to dpimotorsports@yahoo.ca.

I hope you enjoy reading about my hobby and I welcome all comments!
