Who needs a radio? It's never on anyway. The music the engine makes is music enough for me :)

Speaking of Sound. I think this Porsche Elva was the loudest car there..... by far:

Hmmm.
Now that I've reviewed the evidence from Speedy's dash-cam, gotta ask:
Any chance you're a blonde chica???...:icon107:

Hey Curve,

Sorry, neither a blond or a chica. Wish I was there but my wife and I kinda spent my "car time" budget in Colorado - kids wouldn't be too pleased if we disappeared for another week! We'll meet someday, probably back in CO.

By the way, word is there's a white CGT roaming round the peninsula. White was actually my first choice when I was shopping. If you see it could you snap some pics? Have fun!

p.s. - Have I ever told you I love your car?

Jo-- On the short drive to Carmel, I passed a black Panamera going the opposite direction (AWAY from the Concours). Howzabout that in your garage?

Also saw Ferraris, Bentleys, but - gasp - no 993s 'til finally seeing Schmidtwerk's museum-specimen RS.

This is still the only 993 I've seen in the wild, in Monterey.
Here she is, just 30' away from that R Gruppe Classic ... patiently waiting outside the 'velvet rope.'
As I saddled her up at the show's end, a tow truck lady slowly drove past, saying she was about to tow her. Ooh, too exciting. Beach city dangers -- who knew?
(I always figured RLer Cactus would get hauled off before Speedy, anyway. So she's safe ... til the weekend?)

Glad yer enjoing the show. Best thing: thanks to RJT putting the Carmel Concours on the RL radar, & snapping photos, what you've seen is only from day 1 of ~5-day event, with the potential of ~5 different venues that might be covered by the RL roving reporters. Frankly, Carmel's show is likely the least-significant of those this week. Stay tuned for much more...

What??? You should be sorry for not being a blonde or a chica. Muy disappointing, hombre.

Word.
I'm on the case. Any excuse for Porsche pix is a'ite wit me.

Yes, yes, but never too much. She misses you ... she knows I think highly of your CGT, 993T, & the stable-mates we saw y'all running with in Keystone.

There are 33 Panamera's in town, at least that is what we were told last Saturday by a PCNA dude.... that we know.... :)
We also saw a black Panamera on the way into town on Hwy 1. Personally we both think it looked like a Cayenne that's been stepped on by the jolly green giant. Sorta squished.

Nope, no more new Porsche's for us. We'll stick to the oldies but goodies for now own. The new ones just are missing something , at least to us. The leather just smells different and the sound just isn't the same. They are too comfortable and cushy. Almost like they have no soul. Like they sold it to the devil or something......


Here is another Oldie but Goodie. The real deal and not a tribute car:

Other red ladies kicked to the curb like common, uh, commoners during the show...

RoJoT-- Very well-written sentiments about the Panamera. +1.
I was at the US debut, & one of the 1st at the PCA Parade banquet last month to see it up close, get my hands on it, sit in it. But.
As much deference for the past & hope for the future that I have for the factory, IMHO, I'm not too enthralled about the spirit of their recent productions, ever since the 996. Now, if they just had a new a new Speedster that was worthy, of, say the inspired curves of a 993... hmmmm...

I rarely see a Porsche from a distance that I mistake for a 993. Ironically, this 996 C4S initially fooled me, because of the continuing red rear horizontal valence... shame on you! Repeat after me: "I'm a poseur that wants to look like a 993." ;)

Kinda kidding. It's a wee bit of a glimmer of hope, when you see some 993 design cues ehoed in the factory's more modern offerings. A glimmer of hope amongst many coachwork foibles.

Bonus points to those sharp eyes that spy a red Speedster in the background. She was penned in, but rescued when the tow truck lady took care of those pesky problems...

As relayed to JoAnne, IIRC, this one of the absolute first Volkswagens ever made! :thumbsup:

Jager - Are you using a car mounted cam?

DesignerGenes 08-12-2009 12:41 PM

I'm with hoggel. If you pass through Salt Lake call me too, and I'll buy both of you lunch!

So that Carrera GT is Cheryl Dunkel's? Have not seen her in years!

RSA is ready to go, bike rack installed and all.......... Probably just park it and pedal around town the way things get so congested.

I'll see what I can contribute, probably all race cars come Friday.

Yup Cheryl in the flesh :) They are camping at the track in the biggest, baddest Motorhome up on the hill. You will not be able to miss her, or her her laughing. I swear she is the happiest female I have ever met. She said Peter was racing the 550. I didn't ask if she were racing her Carrera GT this year or not. They were not showing a car in the Concours yesterday and we just ran into her by the Porsche Glockler. Where else? :)
