    Time to get out Le Mans and watch it again. I think a friend's dad can get Roger Penske to autograph Mark Donohue's autobiography for me. That would be a nice addition to the bookshelf.

    Cows and cars are about the only happy things in California, send cash.

    I always loved the 959 too - but as Dakar car :wink:

    Picture of the next generation Boxter has been released, I am not a big Boxter fan but I have to admit this looks a lot better.

    Shot photos for my neighbor at the Rose Cup races, he has two brand new GT3's, amazingly beautiful cars.

    My dad really, really wants a 944.

    Not one of those cool, rare 944s- just your regular, run of the mill sub-$3000 944.

    I can't figure out why.

    I'm pretty sure he could do a nice air cooled 911 if he really wanted, so I don't think he's just trying to get the name as cheap as possible. :dunno

    i don't know about yer dad, but a lot of non-porsche people seemed to like the appearance of the 944.

    i remember when those came out, people who barely knew what porsche was were suddenly enamored.

    Gotta watch the "cheap" 944s. They can get expensive fast. Make sure it has a service history.

    You sure you got a shaver?

    Wow...Where do I begin?

    I'm a n00b but I think you guys will enjoy this.

    I started transporting cars after my body was too beat up to race motocross for a living (actually, I still race! http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=492611)

    After a short while I got hooked up with some Porsche guys. One of them bought me an enclosed trailer to deliver his 906. When you pay that much for a car, what's spending another $6500 to transport it 1000 miles!
    [​IMG]

    I have had the pleasure to deliver some of the most famous, most expensive cars on the planet! I read where someone was going to watch Le Mans again. Well, here is Steve McQueen's (personal) Porsche which was featured in the movie. It's the one in front for those who don't recognize it.
    [​IMG]

    Here was a 5 million dollar load which I towed for 3500 miles.

    Some other cars. This is an example of a 'normal' car that I haul!

    This car probably won't qualify for the "cash for clunkers" program!

    There is one more car that I haven't shown a picture of yet. What do you think it is?

    It's expensive! It quite possibly is worth more than all of the other cars I have shown...combined!
