^ ^ Mark-- Glad you're enjoying the show. Any more cool Monterey photographs by you or Justin? It was great meeting both of you; glad you figured out I was a fellow RLer.

Some of us joked about how we should have 'Rennlist nametag' T-shirts to help identify each other. That's asier to wear than carrying your 993 everywhere

Regarding Alf/ AlpinaDVL's below posting about me wearing a "got jäger?" shirt at Laguna, check out the following Pelican Parts forum member (uh, the one on the RIGHT).
[FWIW, thanks to JoAnne/ RJT, I have a similar photo with Jay & me, in my 'jäger' T.]

Jager : (note: he is wearing a red 'Got Jager?' t-shirt) - I think his name is 'Jager' or something like that...
me: oh...I dont know that name-... OH !.... hey what's up man !?

here's the point : it was clear that he was uncomfortable with the attention...or rather any sort of 'showing off' aspect... as soon as he gauged my true interest in the car, he introduced himself.

very cool.

curve lover,

From looking at the photo, you are in reality "E" from Entourage, correct? That's how you know Jay, from the business?

^ ^ Dean-- You're right, the above Pelican Parts Forum fella (check his shirt) does look like E!

Like many here, I'm just lucky to be part of JoAnne/ RJT's entourage.

Ironically, Leno was one of the few I introduced her to that she hadn't already met.


Here's a photo from Fri's La Dolce Vita Automobili. Blue Turquoise, owned by a RLer. When I introduced him to JoAnne Saturday, it took them 30 seconds to do the "you look familiar" thing, then figure out they had met, & he'd been invited to her & Robert's house. Again, I'm just part of her entourage...

Same event, same 993, different photographer:

by RLer Erik/ EB847...



PS While talking to Jay, I said I'd been to his show's taping 3 times, but no photo with him. Never missing an opportunity for self-promotion, he immediately replied, "You need to come to my new show." Always missing an opportunity, I failed to say, "Do you know anybody that can get me in? Plus, can you talk Seinfeld into bringing his 993 Speedster to your first show?"

Luckily, Jerry & I did talk Speedsters soon after RJT took a photo of Leno & I, but would have been fun to continue chatting about 993s last night in the studio (Seinfeld was Jay's 1st guest).

Yeh, I'm a dreamer...

Great find! I think I saw RLer Jeff's 993 RS at the Quail @ about the 1 minute mark.

Conspicous how everything looked like it was at an event or Canepa's, until it came to conspicous Panamera road footage, starting @ ~1:35?

Likewise, too many feature shots for it to blend in.
Looks like they even selected their below screen shot to be the new Porsche sedan. Hmmmm....

Odd, it was only posted in the 964/993 forum on Pelican, apparently a full DVD version is on the way. http://forums.pelicanparts.com/showthread.php?t=498105

OT: I didn't know about the YouTube [yt] tags, nice.
