Here are a couple of pics of my Air Cooled baby. I took her down to Monterey last year with the wife for the Rennsport Reunion IV. Great trip.


On the way to Big Sur on Hwy 1

One of my favorites from Rennsport - Porsche Museum

Pretty amazing survival

Unbelievable price...but also amazing the Spyder survived 56 yrs of rust (without zinc). My 1950 356 was a rust bucket.

(The two cars listed in the article mentioned $300+K and $70K respectively, IIRC.) $300K+ for the LeMans 924/944 is pretty unbelievable.

Guess this Porsche!



Hint: that is the fuel tank wrapping around the driver's shoulders on the right.

I took these at the oldtimer F1 at the Nurburgring a few years ago...



Nice arm rests. Looks comfy.



I don't think those brake discs made for quick tire changes..

Random Porsche shot of the day. Funny how the 951s always seem to come in red!
