there has been an event held in Oxford, OH, home of Miami University for a number of years called P2O. at that time it meant Porsches to Oxford.

for reasons I don't know, they moved it to Granville, OH, north of Columbus a few years ago.

so they restarted an event in Oxford now called Red Brick Reunion for the brick streets in the center of old town where they hold the event.

a lot of nice porsches, but for this thread they are all 911 turbos.

enjoy







that is a white GT2 behind the 930





and for when we all get too old, a little helper

ROFLMAO

I had two pics of that 930 with the GT2 behind it, and picked the one with the girl in it. I knew this crowd would appreciate that.

considering the crowd, there were definitely a few trophy babes in attendance.

that little town is a great venue. I would guess there were about 200 porsches there. I suspect they moved it as there were 500 porsches at the last one and overflowed the down town area parking.

don't have more pics of either the girl or that blue 928. but here is a better crop of her for you.



here is a pic of the engine bay. interesting air filter housing.



and I did not take pics of all the new 911 Turbo S cabs, etc. around. you can go to a dealer to see those.

I had my 84 928S there. did not take a new pic, but here is one from a past event.

IT IS FOR SALE

good cause, for parts for my 930 project. will really miss that car. great driver.







and one with the new wheels.

My son Cain works for Porsche in PA., he stopped by this morning on his way to Nantucket for a Porsche event he is working, Cayman GT4. Not a bad gig for a 22 year old.

There's usually a small 6 point stainless steel nut on the shaft behind the dial of these cheap mechanical temp gauges. That one is made for cooking in an oven and I bet it's far from accurate for AC vent temp measurements.

That said you can grab the little nut on the back (if there is one) with a crescent wrench and twist the dial to sort of calibrate it for the cold air temps you're using it for.

Hey thanks. Lucky for me I dialed that in years ago. I have been using this one on cars for about ten years & it was not cheap. Its dead on with my laser pyrometer and actually preferred over the digital new-fangled battery powered probe that this one sits next to (battery's are plain not reliable).

So how about that!?

Not bad! Everything else stock? If so, I imagine a new evaporator and drier would get you another 10 degrees.

Yes sir. You got that right. It is a new drier. but the evaporator is still the same nearly 40 year old unit. I read about a guy on Rennlist that sees thirties out his vent (caveat - also using a thermometer like mine )

I am not trying to win any race here though. Just thought it was interesting for such an old ride.

To that Rennlist dude, I say GET SUUUMMMMM!

This temp was when it was about 95 out (about a month ago) and the system is not stock.

PS - yours is not bad at all for an ancient, stock system!

Ha - just about! It sure is nice to have that at my disposal here in North TexASS. I use the car's a/c about 8 months out of the year, and sometimes even in the supposedly "cold" months as we will have temps in the 70s to low 80s, and very high humidity, from time to time even in Dec-Jan. One sweet thing about a system capable of delivering arctic temps like that is it doesn't have to work very hard except when it's around 100 degrees - definitely worth all the time, trouble and $$$ that I've dedicated to it.

I can't wait until Mr. South TexASS, Cory/Tippy gets to work on his ball shrinkage system - he'll be a raving lunatic about it, just like me!!!
