    valle grande

    this is a pic i found from my trip last week the valle grande was previously a private ranch in northern nm. a couple of years ago the government purchased it for 100mm i'm not sure which bureaucratic entity administers it but it really is quite spectacular. it's still run as a cattle ranch and best of all you can't just wander in.

    last post i indicated my tt was down one mark on the oil after 500 miles. being suspicious i didn't add any and re-measured when the car was totally to temp. result not down anything.

    Re: valle grande

    Beautiful car, beautiful picture, thanks!

    I think I like red best for the TT.

    Re: valle grande

    Beautiful pic. Do you have any different angles?

    Re: valle grande

    not just yet. it's my intent to take some pics of interesting places i visit in my break-in mission. it might take a bit longer than i want but i'm trying for more road stuff and less around town stuck behind the gravel truck type stuff... thanks for your intrest.

    Re: valle grande

    Very nice...

    Re: valle grande

    The picture seems to be cut off on the last 25%. Maybe it's corrupted? Or did you take it that way?

    Re: valle grande

    corrupted, i clicked out of it before it had completely uploaded. i wasn't sure if i could send it again. so in reality it's a better composition, or at least a little better

    Re: valle grande

    Could you re-upload the image?

    Re: valle grande

    let's see if this works better - thanks for your intrest

    Re: valle grande

    Beautiful!

    Re: valle grande

    Now that SECOND one looks like a TURBO! Great shot! Next shot we expect from you must include some blue flames coming out of the tailpipes, when you're shifting.

    roadtrip,

    Wow, love the Guards Red. This is what I have on order. Did you tint the windows?

    Re: valle grande

    ok dan, i'll give it a go on the blue flames. perhaps i can get my wife to do the camera work.

    mike, glad you like the gr as much as i do. this is stupid but i wouldn't have bought a tt i didn't spec if it wasn't gr with good options. it was the only gr launch car i could find, and i looked extensively.

    thanks guys - stan

    Re: valle grande

    roadtrip,

    Agree, I love GR, my 97 993 is GR. Not having seen a GR 997TT, and most of the posts were of black, blue or grey I was concerned about the look. After seeing your image my concerns were gone. Your car look spectacular!!! BTW did you tint the windows, they look slightly tinted in the image.

    Mike

    Re: valle grande

    sorry mike, the windows have not been tinted. - stan

    I spent many summers at the Baca Location No. 1

    That picture of the Valle Grande brings back many wonderful memories for me. On the other side of "the island" at the tree line on the opposite side of the valley are 2 A-frame houses and a large guest house called the Kiva. Just to the west are the stables and the bunk houses for the cowboys. My 2 uncles along with Pat Dunnigan purchased the ranch in 1962 and owned it into the 80s. Pat's family bought my uncles out and then sold it to the government. There is some great trout fishing on that property. The ranch was part of a land swap for White Sands NM. The road up from Los Alamos would be wonderful in the TT. My cousin once had me convinced we were going to eat it in his black 64 Corvette convertible with a 427 and side pipes. It was quite a ride..

    Re: I spent many summers at the Baca Location No. 1

    glad the pic brought back some memories. like you i've always thought this particular ranch was something extra ordinary. i've wondered what the feeling must have been for mr. dunnigan when he decided , yup i'll buy it.
