    @Gnil:  You just can't escape tractors.  I try not to get too frustrated as they are just doing their jobs, but when it's on your favorite road, oh man...

    @ Carlos: Thanks man, enjoyed the trip home.


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Nice pics of your trip kiss

    Very interesting - I’ve not seen much of that part of the US.

    thanks for sharing ! nice pics !


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Thanks Dave, Enmanuel.  Wish I would have had the time to stop and take some nicer pics.  I missed a lot of beautiful /interesting scenery.  Next time I'll schedule my time a little better to allow for stops.

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Well since I'm going to be saving money and doing the exhaust install myself (I think), decided to finally get a nice tool box to go with my Sonic tools.  Also for something more interesting, plan on documenting taking off the rear bumper (cover) to clean out the air filter next week.  Never done that before so seemed like good practice for the exhaust since that's the first step of getting to everything.  

    This particular toolbox was about 70% off, one small issue you may notice:

    Couldn't have that so bought some cheap black vinyl and got to wrapping:

    You may ask why I kept the skull symbol...well it's called "Jake" and since that's my nickname seemed fitting for it to stay on the tool box indecision

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Great job on the wrap ! Looking forward to you documenting the whole exhaust install. That should be very interesting. 


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Good job on the tool cabinet: that’s the kind of thing I would do wink

    Nice, wish I had Snap-On, but Sonic is good enough for now.

    We had a cars and coffee today so took a couple pics of interesting cars (sorry for my shadow).  Click on pics for better resolution.

    Several rear engine non-911's, including Ralph Nader's favorite car

    Interesting mix of cars, lots of other types there I didn't capture.


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Cool! Some interesting cars there. Love the Corvair indecision

    My Beetle has the same carb setup as that yellow one..

    That's awesome.  The engine bays of the older cars are so much more interesting than those today.  Mechanical works of art in many cases.  I spent a fair amount of the show talking to the owners of the two beetles.  They were beautifully maintained.

    They also own a Karmann Ghia which I would have loved to see.


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Thanks for the photos . The red of the 911S is beautiful . so deep . Also love the Camaro . Proper muscle car !
