Swiped off the google machine, but I think this is what many of us who shopped for stereo gear in the mid to late 70's and into the mid 80's were striving for - or a reasonable facsimile - I know I would have owned something like this if I had had Pillsbury money in the family (maybe more style than substance, if you compare it to what the likes of McIntosh were offering at the time, but what style!):

On a car note...albeit not Porsches...the Velocity channel is starting a series called "JDM Legends". Any fans of old Z cars or Mazda RX7s might want to tune in. Starts Tuesday!

Ooh- I had a '79 280z just before I bought my first Porsche... sweet car, but I cornered too hard with a stock engine and starved my camshaft of oil... bye-by to that set of cylinder heads! Way cheaper to fix than any Porsche though... I bought that car for the express purpose of installing an LS1 engine into it, but when I discovered that the stock engine was fine (before wrecking the heads), changed my mind.

At one time in my life, I would have exchanged several body parts for a system like this!

Anybody going to the Grand Prix of Portland? (Grand Prix of Portland - Home) I just got my tix. They go on sale tomorrow unless you're an e-club member or a "Friend of PIR" member. I'm embarrassed to say, unless I get out to PIR this summer, the race will be my first visit...ever. But I think we picked a good one to go on. Can't wait to see the Indycars again!

This is the setup I had (still have) after college.
Wild Carver stuff with the "sonic holography", etc.
Sounds great though running through a decent set of Polk Audio tower speakers.
My poor man's high fidelity setup.

Somehow Carver got tube sound from his solid state designs.
In fact there were a couple of famous challenges where he was able to duplicate the sound exactly of two very high end tube amps, Mark Levinson ML-2 and Conrad-Johnson Premier Four, such that you couldn't tell the difference.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Carver

Carver eventually built their Llightstar amps that are worth quite a bit on today's market 2nd hand.

Carver is still around, and building of all things, tube amps. Ha

We got tix in the K grandstand, section A, top row seats 9 & 10. I got the three day paddock passes as well. Julie will be with me Saturday an of course Sunday for the race, but may have to work that Friday. Let me know where you end up and we can hang out!

Nice....

I know for the historic races, the seats in the area of turns 5, 6, 7 are really good too.

Anyway, anyone else contemplating tickets?

We talked to a woman at the "Friends of PIR" booth at the auto show. She said if you got seats on the top row of K (which we did), you can see all of those turns and part of the straight away behind you.

The only bad thing about our seats is it's where the cars are the slowest. But I've been up at the fence at Indy where they blow by at 230, so...not much will compare to that...

Harry: are you going singleday or multiple? I would appreciate it if you could buy me a ticket to sit with you for at least one day. Could you do that, as I have limited Internet access right now?

I walked through the World of Speed this morning and saw the Porsche exhibit under construction - it should be very cool! They even have a 959 Sport on display.

I m planning on a 3 day pass including Paddock and parking.

I looked at the K Grandstand where Doug is sitting but we will not be on the top row which means we WILL see the Chicane but NOT turns 4, 5, 6, 7, 8,

I Selected Section L which is outside Turns 6/7 which means we will see the Chicane and Turns 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. I think this is better.

I also selected a Paddock Pass but not the pits.

Pricing:
Seats $85/ea
Parking $50/ea
Paddock $65/ea
"Service Fee" TBD

Total Cost $200 plus service fee

You in?

Let me know and I will close the deal.

How's Mexico.
