Patton " Blood and Guts"

Looks like he is on a Stallion  from the Spanish Riding School Austria. To the victor go the spoils of war.

Celebrated Fabien Becasse's Birthday Saturday night. Picture is of Ben and Fabien. Fabien worked for Porsche in France before coming to U.S. He just purchased a very clean low mileage 73 911 T Italian delivery car from Brumos Porsche. The car is unbelievable. More to come.

Desert Fox

 This off road 911 was photographed at the Nurburgring. Always thought about building a Baja 911 this looks like a good place to start. Cool hunting and fishing rig.

The Horseman

The day dawned when man fascinated by open spaces and the lure of the unknown , realized that only the swift and slender hoofs of the horse could translate his ambitious dreams into reality. Then after he had mounted and become master of that back and sat high above the earth as if on a fatal throne, man discovered within himself hauteur and pride and vanity, and they were never to leave his heart.

Stopped by Curtiss' auto storage for Early 911S registry sunday coffee. The guys brought in four wheel computer scale to corner weigh our cars. My 70 911T with me in car weighed 2436 lbs. Car needs to be on a diet. Maybe me to!
