That seem like an interesting place and have always wanted to visit but traveling with wife and kids out E on the 10 is not always the best idea to detour to see the Patton museum. My cycling buddy lives next to his dad's house or the house General Patton grew up in the City of San Marino, on Patton Way. Only if that place can talk, I love to the fly on the wall. I hear that General Patton would have friends high up on the military show up and have informal meetings there.

Saw this DB2 advertised

And thought since it's a LHand drive California car it might be from "The Birds" movie

But then I had a closer look at the movie, and guess I was wrong.
Both nice though and I'd take either one.

So....never mind

Here’s a Porsche project I’d never heard of before last night. I haven’t verified it, but it was on Wikipedia so it must be true

“The Story of The Successor of The Porsche 959 a Prototype called 969 (965)"

The Porsche 969 was a concept intended to succeed the Porsche 959 and was based on the then upcoming 964 platform.

The car was conceived in 1982 as a twin-turbo 911 with four-wheel drive and a PDK gearbox. The project received the in-house code 965 and was developed along with the new, 964 generation of the 911. However, the intended engine (a 3.3 litre, 374 hp (379 PS; 279 kW) flat-six) could not be used due to cooling problems. Various alternatives were considered during the car's development, including a water-cooled version of the traditional flat-six and two variants of Porsche's Indy V8 engine.

While the 969 shared the 911's roofline, its slanted headlights and wide tail were carryovers from the 959.

Ultimately, the project was scrapped. Ongoing engine development issues and a projected price of over 200.000 DM in the wake of a recession kept it from succeeding the 911 turbo. (The 964 turbo made its debut in March 1990.) Fifteen of the 16 prototypes were destroyed in December 1988 and the sole remaining prototype has not been seen since.

And the 6.6 litre is the Oldsmobile 403 engine. Cars with the T/A 6.6 had the real Pontiac motor.
