New garage

Garage space in Maryland is hard to find. So this tight quarters for my cars is the best I could do. I look forward to painting the walls, cabinets and floors and hanging the Porsche posters.

Cars arrive in Maryland

A little dirty but safe and sound! I’ll wash them both this weekend. The bikes arrive next week.

Porsche monopoly

A good friend of mine just gave me a complete set of pewter Porsche cars from the 1980s Porsche Monopoly game. This game was a marketing promo produced by Porsche Cars North America. I have long wanted this set and have also long forgotten about it. And today I was surprised!

Porsche wins!

Porsche just won the GTE Pro and GTE Am classes at the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans! The Pink Pig 911 RSR won the GTE Pro with the Rothmans livery car in second and Dempsey took his first team Le Mans win in the Am category.

What a great race!

24 hours is a long time to race and a long time to watch a race. Camped out watching on TV and my computer seems to be my tradition. I love all this live coverage. Now it's time to sleep.

70th Anniversary celebration at the National Automobile Museum


Porsche of Reno hosted a free admission day to the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada to celebrate Porsche's 70th anniversary. I drove the Cayenne today and met some Sierra Nevada Region PCA members for a short visit and toured the museum. The museum only has two Porsche cars in it. But one is a 1950 split window 356 Coupe ... a fitting car to see on the 70th anniversary! The other Porsche in the museum is the 935 K3 ... my favorite race car growing up! I also took a couple photos of a 1947 Volkswagen.

70th celebration at Niello Porsche dealership

 
 

Today I attended the 70th anniversary of the first Porsche car at the Niello Porsche dealership in Rocklin, California.

The event was well attended and part of the global party to support and share the anniversary of the first car to bear the Porsche name. I met a few people from the Sacramento Valley Region and Sierra Nevada Region that I know.

The cars on display were incredible. Everything from early 356s to a 918 Spyder were in the dealership parking lot. I saw many 911s, a 912, a couple 914s, a 944, 968, a couple 928s and of course many Macans, Cayennes and Panameras.

It was a great time! Tomorrow is over to Reno for the next stop in the Porsche 70th anniversary tour!

Recovery week

Last week was a week to forget. Got a flat tire on the Bike X and crashed the Bike S. And in two consecutive days. This week I’m back on the...
