Next door to the assembly area of Porsche was a wall paper shop. The workers took the scraps from them and used it to hold the nuts on the back of the ashtray bracket. Some have been like this where you ask “Really? On the whole wall?”

Photos from 356Restore's post

We are hearing that the car at the painter’s will be done soon. So every part that was taken off that car needs to be either replaced or restored. A lot of painting and finding hardware. All of the lights are tested and cleaned. And then there is the pile at the bottom of the plastic storage bins that you have no idea where they go.

No Reserve: Porsche 356 Hardtop by Reutter

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1961-porsche-356b-6/?utm_source=dailymail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2018-03-09 $1000 bid? We have had five of these hard tops and have sold one in 20 years. Bulky, hard to install, a pain to store and why would you put a hard top on a convertible? If the weather is bad take the Coupe.

I just did a price and condition list for the current prices of 356s. I looked at the cars for sale on the top 5 sites. No bargains, some junk, most of the cars were in the average range for their make and models. I do not see the garage doors opening for spring cleaning.

Cousin is at Barrett Jackson. Just because you have the tools does not mean you have to use them. Good use for a plastic car

2013 Octoberfast Spooktacular
October 26 – 27
PPIR will host RMVR’s last race of the season. Once again the Board determined that the club’s finances were good enough to go ahead and add this event to close out the year. Please join us for this special laid back, end-of-year, Customer Appreciation weekend. Help us wrap up a successful season on PPIR’s wonderfully smooth 1.3 mile road course.

Race Chair Tony Peak has some Halloween themed surprises in store for the weekend.

(Very fast cars of Indy like)

(I have the schedule and run groups if you want to see what is going on, email me bigdog356c@aol.com)

One thing is for certain, the southern Colorado location, full covered garages and superb facilities guarantee that inclement weather won’t be an issue. Plenty of nice hotels and restaurants are a mere 15 minutes away.

Weekend Features:

News Flash! This year, PPIR will be run clockwise! If you think you’ve mastered the track counterclockwise or are from some reason bored with PPIR, come on down for a completely new PPIR experience. Many organizations have run the track this direction including some RMVR members. Safety aspects have been thoroughly considered and no problems found. Consensus member input confirms they want to try it. Think of it as a new track—it should be fun. Dare we say “spooky”? Spooky can be fun!
There will be a food vendor for lunch and breakfast on both days.
Garages can be rented and RMVR will keep those proceeds. $75 gets you the whole weekend and each garage can usually host a couple of cars. Rent when registering. Get assigned garage space when registering at track.
Saturday’s after racing drinks and treats will be stepped up to help everyone stay and enjoy the costume party (details to follow) and live entertainment.
Fuel will be available at the track.
Plan on some Halloween themed stuff with prizes:
Best Halloween costume Saturday evening
Best Halloween theme pit area
and best corner station
Test & Tune of Friday—payable at the track, to the track.

Please let us know if you are bringing children so that we can get something special for them!

Special Customer Appreciation End of Year Pricing: Entry Fee Only $200!

You will never see it

I have been working on areas of Jim’s project that 99 percent of the people looking at it will never see. Unless it is on the rack with a flashlight or putting in new carpet no one will see it.  So why do it? Because it is the correct way of doing things
