Is that a Secretary of State quote by any chance?

Mark are you back home OK?

Love the 63, I have a 55. Feels like what the 928 could have become over time, minus the convertible top.

Nice, I will have to settle for the 510hp in mine although I have a tune and pulley on the way which brings it up to 63 levels more or less.

My turbos will easily beat this car in just about any competition, but there is something so satisfying about the SL....it;s as if Afalterbach picked up building the 928 when Porsche stopped. It feels *that* 928 like to me, kind of like what the 928 would have been like if they kept building it. Here is a pic of mine.

Glad to hear you and your property are safe, Mark. When I read "Anaheim Hills" in a news story yesterday, I immediately thought of you.

Check this out. It's a 944. Hopefully we don't want to get any closer than this video.
Not keen on reading the numbers as it flies over
