    How long ago did you wash the Lizard, buddy Smiley. 8 weeks ago Smiley..

    I like a bit of dirtiness Smiley.

    Always a quick wash after a hot , intense, sticky and orgasmic  day at the track  ..... otherwise it would be called now the  green Zebra Smiley

    How's the dirty white girl doing ?

    It's going well, bud. Ragging it about, you remember, the fastest GT3 in the West. Smiley.

    Crap 2018 stopped me using it so just 3500 miles on her clock at the mo. I love it and reckon I be in for a 992 allocation. Bit dubious though of the 992 GT3 losing that epic sound, time will tell. Just wish the fixed bucket seats were a bit more grippier on the body. I will have to eat more crap I suppose Smiley Smiley.

    You take care Smiley..

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Went to local C&C this morning and came home with a nice lithograph for prettiest car at the event.  Obviously judge was biased to Porsche.  Very surprised due to some of the other cars there.  I would have picked the 911E personally...even despite all the swirls.

    Did you give them a quick polish when there was nobody about 😁.

    Great pics . I love to see these meetings as the cars are  in pristine conditions , beautiful and you see rarities . 

    I like that blue Pontiac , but if I could choose one I would take the white 911 ( replica ?  Carrera 2.7 ?  ) with green rims

    Thanks throt, you know I wanted to correct that thing.  Funny thing is my detailer buddy had done a full correction on it not too long ago.  I told him about the swirls and he was a little peeved.  It had been perfect, course I reminded him that it was job security and he’ll just have to correct it again 😆.

    Gnil, the 2.7 clone was nice as well.  Pic of the engine bay I forgot to include. Everything was very clean; however, the US bumpers aren’t the nicest things.

    Yes, the bumperettes look iffy, clean lines no.  All original though indecision...

    Still struggling to capture the awesome sound of the JCR race pipe, all this caught was me laughing at how crazy it is.

    Underpass.MOV

    And then when you think you caught a big slide like Chris Harris and then watch the video and the car barely moved...for half a second...at 25mph

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Porsche dealership has a McLaren 720S Performance for sale so going to try and get a test drive.  Outside of my budget, but really want to try one out.  Closest McLaren dealership is 6 hours away so ownership proposition is low even if it depreciates into my price range. 

    I asked if they could remove the tire writing before I drive it.  I think it looks horrendous angry

    Our PCA group had its yearly membership gathering.  Started with a nice two hour drive then dinner at a member’s house.  I did notice that apparently other than shades of gray the only color allowed in the group is red

    I realize it kind of defeats the purpose of sharing when you can't see the smiling faces, but visited some old neighbors to let their kids see the car.  They are a tremendous family having adopted five children from China, two of whom have special needs.  This after having raised their own kids who are adults now.  The kids always loved seeing my cars, so was great to see them again and let the kids see the new purple one.  It got very good reviews indecision

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Love that you do this. At one of my places of business, I have to drive by a school, and I always see young boys and teenagers giving me the thumbs up or just starring and I recall that when I was young that I always lusted after a cool sports car. I think we underestimate the amount of motivation our cars sometimes give, I get envy as well, but with young kids it is motivation.

    Cheers.

    In the Spanish Porsche forum we have a yearly event in which volunteers from the forum gather together one day at the Valencia track and take turns taking children from the Spanish Association Against Cancer around the track in their Porsches. The limit is usually between 50-60 members/P-cars and it is always reached. Everybody has a great time, not just the kids.

    I love that idea.  Do you have any information how to handle all the legal potholes ?

    It’s kind of perfect if you think about it. The 720 has all those aero cuts, fins, channels and curves. The perfect places for dirt and grime to accumulate. The dirtier the car can get the more exhaustive the cleaning. Win win for someone as dedicated.  


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    I promise I don’t just go to Cars & Coffee events despite pics suggesting otherwise.  Stopped by an event yesterday put on by a friend after a nice drive.  If you zoom onto the front of my car you can even see dead bugs! angel
    For RC including pics a buddy took when a Lamborghini rally came through town, including a rather infamous one...surprised by how many were rentals.

    You are welcome.  Apparently it is not uncommon for people to rent cars to participate in the various rallies.  This was an official Lamborghini one, so maybe owners didn't want to put a lot of miles on their own cars and so rented some?Smiley
