We are working with the Deschutes Historical Society in Bend to hold our Porsche Car Show on their lawn on Saturday, June 9th. It will be a great setting for us. I’ll keep you posted on this.
Board meeting and Carrera track day later this month, it’s that time of the year when Porsche things really start to pick-up. I’m so glad. I’m already making my plans for the Parade at Salt Lake City. I hope you’ll be part of them.
Would you like to do a High Desert “Porsche” family portrait? Get all our members and all their cars into a panoramic photo. Do we arrange by type or by color? We could make a Porsche rainbow. How about doing some “by type” photos first than the “family” photo?
How many 3.2 Carreras do we have in the club now? It just seems to me I keep seeing more and more of them.
Have you ever noticed that there is no correlation between “need” and “want”? As in “I don’t need another Porsche, but I want one!” “Want” almost always trumps “need” every time.
And the answer is 240 MPH. Bill Riser was the first to answer the question correctly. See last month’s “Ramblings” for the question if you don’t remember it. Did you know that in 1975 a 917/30 Spyder set a new lap record on the Talladega oval of 221 MPH?
