Iithink I found the use for that small paint protection strip by the door. The rubber strip on the door does not hit that portion of the door flat. It slides on that portion so the plastic strip prevents the paint from getting worn out by the consistent sliding of the rubber strip on it every time door is opened and closed.

Photos from the Oktoberfest Concours - Space Coast Region PCA - October 17, 2015.

It was the 1st time we joined a concours and surprisingly we got 2nd place in the water cooled category (1999-Present including turbos and GTs). My kid was so excited!!!

The 997.1 Cobalt Blue with vossen wheels got the 1st place. Very clean car, well deserved! I spoke with the owner (not a rennlister). Very nice guy, a truly Porsche enthusiast. I told him it's about time to join our gang. Let's see if he shows up here.

I just got a new set of natural brown floor mats from suncoastparts.com

After seeing some photos from other threads, I thought it was worth to give it a try, and I am very happy with the results.
Since my original sand beige mats are in like new condition, I am going to save them and use this brown set in my daily driving.

Exactly. From wikipedia:
The original Sunshine Skyway Bridge was the site of a number of tragic events, including the collision of the US Coast Guard Cutter Blackthorn and inbound freighter Capricorn in 1980 which claimed 23 Coast Guardsmen's lives, and a structural collapse caused by a collision with the bridge support by the inbound freighter Summit Venture in 1980 which killed 35 people and ultimately ended the bridge spans' useful life.

Is it weird I think your C2 looks better than your GT3? Of course I'd rather have the GT3 because of what it is...but your C2 looks awesome.

Thank you! The 997 C2 is a very passionate car. I love the lines of the 997. IMO it is the greatest 911 of all times.

The 991 GT3 is a weapon!
