    here in Spain that color is known as "smurf" blue



    That's better than its name here in Germany: "garbage sack blue".

    That shade is a lot like a common color for plastic sacks here.



    Very nice pics Carlos

    And for Fritz, you international garbage sack afficianado , the garbage sacks in the US are typically basalt black or arctic silver.



    OK, metallic colors are an extra-cost option here, so we don't go for those colors for something as utilitarian as garbage sacks.

    Gee, I finally found my calling: International garbage sack aficionado!

    Darn it, Jim, you could at least have spelled my new official title correctly.

    Great pics, as always, Carlos. I am determined to make it to Galicia one day to see it for myself.

    The round stone wall foundations (?) in this particular shot puzzled me. Do you know what they were, by any chance.

    You know who to call if you drop by

    The Celtics settled in this region of the north-west of Spain, which gave rise to its name by the Romans when they came afterwards, Gallaecia (Galicia) from Gaelic/Celtic. And these round formations are remains of a Celtic settlement in this mountain, dates back to around 4000 years old. You can see also a rebuilt house or two, and the perimeter wall.

    Thanks. I surely shall call.

    The Celtic connection explains why that pic caught my eye. I must have Celtic blood in my veins! Those guys got around. They also left traces of their civilisation here in southern Germany.

    Nick,

    If for no other reason, the little side marker is a dead give away. Got to study the opposition a little better!



    I'm thinking Nick knew it was a 993 before he asked that question...
    I woudnt be suprised if it turns out he's Jeremy Clarkson

    The blue one is a proto type of the new 998!

    Re: Local Porsche outing - photos

    Looks like you had a wonderful time. Thank you for posting the pictures.

    Re: Local Porsche outing - photos

    Yep, looks like great fun. Thanks for the pics!

    Re: Local Porsche outing - photos

    Great pics Carlos: nice cars and beautiful scenery
    It's always fun to go out for a spin with a bunch of P-fellows
    Thanks for posting

    Re: Local Porsche outing - photos

    Carlos that '73 911T really looks very, very good. With its ground clearance the others could never follow it up that hill where they parked. They didnt need Cayennes in '73!

    Fritz, excuse my typo please. So what is the German expression for "Leader of the International Garbage Bag Aficionados Association."??

    I salute you!

    Is the light blue one a 997 or 993.



    you crack me up, got to give credit to your sence of humor.


    Carlos, very nice photos and beautiful group of cars too. The 993TT still looks mean, even with newer Porsche beside.
