Any luck with the accidents pic for me? Not that I want to cry anymore
Tony -

Sorry to hear of the mis-hap -- and still bummed I could not make it this year. I'm quite sure your car will be better than ever. Look forward to meeting you on a local run soon.

Back to the open road. Approaching a 90 degree left hander in the middle nowhere, at over triple digits.

Hi All,

Sorry I missed the fun part. I ran out of talent, as wll as gas, along the way.

The RUF is now in good hands. Thanks to Bob, first and foremost for bringing his trailer down to Coalinga to bring the RUF home. That was WAAAY above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to Jim, Brad, Kurt (and his son) for staying with Meliis and me through our mishaps. Aslo to Arlen and Keiko for their pastries and drinks. The Rennlist community is filled with such generous, kind and considerate members. We are blessed.

Tony, I hope you and Jodi are fine physically. Soft tissue injuries can linger for weeks or months. Please take good care of yourselves. Melissa and I are fine as the impact speed was not excessive.

As everyone had observed, cars can be replaced (it's a matter of $$). but health is paramount. So I hope you folks stay well, and can enjoy these fine cars for many years to come.

Glad you and Melissa are doing well. You guys and the others were missed for the rest of the drive down to the Rumble. Hope to see you, Melissa and the Ruf at the next BAR drive

Take Care!

Dang I cant tell you how much my heart sank when I heard my dear friend CP had had an accident. And then Tony limps up with his baby leaking. I look under it with Don (Q45/911) and saw it was not good.
Heartbroken is the only way to discribe it.
Luckily Doc Tom and Stephanie were there to take us to some wineries to take our mind off our friends bud luck. what a wonderful day besides that sadness. All you guys are so great I got some pic for later.
IBDavid and his new soon to be wife, Rand and Angela, brother Steve and Lynn. Good Friends Terry Adams and Lorenzo, DonC and his son. Everyone was so great, Fred and Jan, JR especially for arranging everything, Steve OFE my buddy, Eric and Kelly, Ron who was there with us early, the great dinner we had sat nite too was an event not to be missed, the rest of you should try our Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill events we do AFTER the RUMBLE. Scott and Jane the whole bunch are so nice, The NorCal guys, and Edward and Yugi all the people. If I would have known I could get such great people by buying a Porsche I would have done it decades ago.
Toni and Jodi and Pong get well soon we need you back, Tony hope to hook up with you shortly!!

I REALLY appreciate you guys letting a water baby hang out with you all and remember
"who ever has the Porsche in the parking lot your lites are on!!"

Did Tony get run off the road? Looks like a pretty straight stretch of pavement. Hope all is well.

Seeing those pics, I gotta say the 993 is the best looking 911 yet - especially those widebodies.

Wow! How great seeing all those fine pix of home. You guys must have had a great time. Looks like a spectacular day.
Tony and CP so very sorry for your losses. Glad you are fine physically. I know metal can be fixed but, come on, it is Pure Porsche metal. Not just any old metal. Keep us posted on the recovery process.
Great shots Alan. A man can't even **** in peace?
Jim M's last pix reminded me of something Terry Adams would post. :
The colonel can really pull it together. Way to go JR.
