Didn't see any of you guys at CMP. Perhaps the wet weather kept you away?

I dragged the 930 all the down so I figured "what the hell" - I ran in the wet. Good practice slippin' and slidin' - all at relatively low speeds.



I ran with a few of the "regulars" who frequent CMP, including a couple of blokes originally from the UK (but now making a home in Hickory, NC), one in a 991 GT3 and the other in a Nissan Z car. It was fun.

On the way down, fellow Pelican Patrick (aka "patina") invited me to stop in on Sunday night at his shop's Christmas open house party. An incredible facility specializing in custom sheet metal work (356 restos are a staple offering)...and the boss Tim has a tasty collection of 930s.



Did somebody say 930 collection? Oh yeah! A green '77 (or was it '76) with factory gold center fuchs, next to a '78-'79 in Aubergine.


Eggplant - dig it!

I have a bunch more photos, but this gives you an idea of the eye-candy that I was tripping over. Big thanks to Patrick for the invite, what a great way to break up the long haul south.

Merry Christmas everyone.
