Keep 'em coming! Anymore of the 88CS? Or Jeff's RS? Or Speedy? Or..........you get the idea.
Thanks, my friend.

Anything I can do to serve a fellow RLer in need! Here's a basic profile shot of Schmidtwerk's RS.

He was parked at an angle, so I adjusted the camera to tilt the rest of the world around the 993.

Pretty standard view of the world for most of us

J,

Excellent photography... Wish I had known you'd be there - could have met up for a few drinks....

Anyway, thanks for posting your pictures - very interesting to see how others viewed the same cars I saw.

My favorite shot of yours is the the front corner of the orange & white 908 (?) a few pages back. Ay chance of getting that in high res??

Old(er)Porsche muscle:






Spartan interior. Who says we need all those bells and whistles anyway? Guess Herb didn't want to misplace his key.

Or dead............

One time I go up early to an IMSA event at Sears, circa 1981-2, and there's these two South/Central Americans who ran in the a-step-down GTO class with a Mustang and a Corvette. Their pit crew all had matching shirts--Hells Angels, Titusville, FL. Pauls, Whittingtons, Lanier, J David Dominelli (Ponzi scheme)........it went on and on.

And to clarify, the friend here locally owned the Akin cars at some point recently (had to buy them both as a package deal), not Pablo Escobar.

Gotcha....

I remember the Whittingtons (father and son). That's about the time I got interested in racing. I am glad I wasn't involved in racing during that decade.


Speaking of racing and my olden days. It was fun catching up with Hurley during the weekend. He is always such a gentleman and was a pleasure to work with. I'd love to work with him again one day.... ONE DAY.......
