Gulf long hood in Camas WA.... Anyone we know?

Was headed to the park with the kids when we came across a hotels looking long hood in full Gulf livery. Looked like a gray haired gentleman driving. Gave him a thumbs up and got one in return. Anyone know whose car it is?

Next door to Camas, in Washougal, there is a house with a bunch of older Porsches parked here and there, none of them in pristine condition. Must be a Porsche fanatic living there. I wonder if the pristine cars get to be parked inside?

I thought it might be his (Kevin), but I've only seen the cars outside, never something as nice as the car I saw yesterday. I haven't ever met Kevin, but heard he used to rebuild engines for the Emory's. Anyone have any inside knowlege of "Kevin's shop" in Washougal?

No inside knowledge. I was once tempted to knock on the door and ask about the early 911 sitting there. I have a flatbed trailer, and would have been happy to get it out of their way!

Dantilla - where are you located? I'm in Camas and there's another Pelican not too far away in Washougal. We should get together for a couple of drinks.

I've also been tempted to stop by as well, but just haven't had the chance yet. I've run into a few people (usually at the gas station) that ask me if I know Kevin. That's where I had heard he did some engines for Emorys. Just wondering what kind of work he does (in terms of both quality and services).

I'm actually up North on the Olympic Peninsula, but I have property in Camas, and am there on a semi-regular basis.

Let me know next time you're in town and we'll get together.
