Another one of the Singer #008



..With Mr. Rob Dickinson (white shirt, gray hat) on the side.
An interesting info, the business plan was to build 2 or 3 units per year, and now, betite bropblem (nice to have) : 40 on order !
The easy to understand proof that Mr Dickinson was 100% right: an old great car ..rebuilt better than new today, ..is pretty perfect for the roads of today.

Great kudos for such super work, well done Mr. Dickinson

Dangit! I was looking forward to meeting you finally ..I must have been over eating lunch. Great show, huh? The guy's next to me in the 97 Arena NB coupe won First in class and deserved it.. $G993 won 2nd with his gorgeous Glacier over Chestnut 4S and I tied for 3rd with a stunning Turq Blau/Classic Grey S ..

I saw all those cars. The 4S with chestnut interior was absolutely beautiful! Sorry I missed you, hopefully we will meet sometime in the future. Your cars looks even better in person than in pictures!

+1! Maybe some of them already own the donor car?

Hope someone can post some pics from the Porsche display at Pebble. I drove by today and saw some neat stuff including a Maritime Blue 964RS. The 993 got a nice wave from the staff.

I know or assume I've traded headlight flashes or waves with several on this thread, including the beautiful turquoise car. Great weekend, wish I'd had more time.

It's a Ferrari 275 GTB/4. Absolutely beautiful. Probably my 2nd favorite Ferrari.

Saw several 993's today. A black C2 on 17S pulled over by CHP, Arena red with Turbo wing at the Porsche Zentrum, and a black Turbo S at Mecum. There were a few others on the road, but don't recall much. I'll be back tomorrow at Pebble.

Terrance^^ As I drove out of CA Monday, the last cool car I saw amidst a sea of boring econo-boxes was a black 993TT

Maybe Singer's Rob agrees. New shot of him snapping a souvenir:

I really appreciate the kudos, Harlan. You remind me: I still have un-posted pics from our 993Fest gathering

Funny you say that, Noah: last night I found an on-line article about McCall's Motorworks Revival. A caption on the Mustang fighter-plane said it can't be upstaged. Hmmmm...

I'm really bummed I didn't get to meet you. So close, you know?
As to where we were: several times I found JPP by my rust bucket. We stood in line together for lunch, but you don't want to hang out with us anyway: it was the wrong lunch line
I'm glad 'Speedy' got to meet you, but I really wish she had introduced me to you.

Glad to share. I can't wait to see more pics from others.
Have you been to Monterey Car Week? This is my 4.5th time (half = Rennsport Reunion), but I'm still in sensory overload every visit. Almost too much of a good thing. ...Almost
