Default Nearly impossible, in threes...

What are the chances of pulling into a random gas station and seeing three generations of GT3 owned by complete strangers from three different countries at the pumps?



On the way from Monaco to Provence... 996, 997, 991 GT3 cars from Monaco, Great Britain, and France. Of course the best one is mine, the 997 in the go-faster white color. And likely the only bi-national, holding US and UK registrations... quite cultured and well travelled for a GT3.

Being from the Milwaukee that made me laugh! ...and I can confirm I've never seen a line up like that at a local gas station.

Hope I didnĺt offend! Not sure why I picked Milwaukee? I live in Minneapolis so a Midwestern brother...

Sadly, we didnĺt say a word... no Opus Dei secret handshake, no gang signs, not even that mini head nod used to maintain our masculinity when acknowledging one another. I was actually left speechless by the lineup... and a not insignificant hangover.

Love the picture - very cool.. I always hope to see a GT3 when I am in Europe and consider myself lucky if I see one during my visit. I hope I get a chance like that the next time I am in Europe.


The white 997 GT3 is the coolest one !! Thanks for sharing!!

Singular indeed.

Not even a mini-head nod ? !
