I think your roof rack invokes memories of the '70s. Two leather suitcases, smoking a pipe while driving through the Brenner pass on his way to Italy. The Persuaders theme running in your mind will help this picture.

I agree with Pirahna, I love those original wheels for it!

The (crappy) chrome kills it for me. If I cared, I'd have them stripped, polished, and re-painted. As it is, they make a great spare set for winter (offroad ) tires. I prefer the ROH's.

Couple of pics of my eclipse watch road trip:





Unfortunately, it didn't read in the pic, but IRL the eclipse in total annualarity was reflected in the door.

I always liked the Sport Classic they came out with a few years ago for the nod to that era 911's

Is it a criminal offence to sell your house without the wife's consent?

I view Porsches like motorcycles... No way would I pay that coin for anything less than a GT2/3!!!

Uh, keep going. As I mentioned before, a close friend is the lead restoration manager for Singer and those things are around $500k.

And yes, I would probably donate a piece of my anatomy for one.
