Timeless Garage out of Lisbon, Portugal is a small, bespoke that, if we’re being completely honest, doesn’t get anywhere near the amount of love and adoration they deserve based on the machines that roll out of their doors. This recent 1959 Porsche 356 build is the perfect example of what we’re talking about. Dubbed Audrey, this build started as a social butterfly that had previously been featured in the pages of Playboy before being bare metal restored, overhauled and upgraded to create the sleek, overwhelming beauty you see here. The chrome bumpers were replaced were replaced with more contoured and fitted options before being lowered for a sportier feel. Weber carbs were installed for performance and functionality upgrades. The engine was overhauled to increase performance figures by an incredible forty percent (60 bhp to 100 bhp). And then, it was fitted with Carrera wheels to complete the look. They say this “dream car is synonymous with style,” and after having seen it, we’re inclined to agree.

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
