I received the photo from a seller in GA when I was Porsche hunting last year.

I thought it was neat so I saved a copy.

Sephia must just be "too common"?

TerryH,
Greetings from a former life-long Whittierite! Can't exacly tell from that shot but the tower looks sorta like Lutheran Towers in Uptown, am I close? I used to live up on Eastridge Drive (Christmas Tree Lane) until my divorce in '00.

Anyway, I like your Chiffon car very much. I think having those Fuchs lips polished against the black centers might really pop against the understated color. Just my $.02, lots of guys dont' care for polish anymore...not me! Maybe I'll run in to you (not literally) at a local run.

Fritz, I would have thought I wouldn't like Periwinkle but man that looks great...and truly unique. Is it a factory color? Paint to sample? The flares with rock guards and the polished 7's and 8's (I think?) look awesome on that car, congratulations. I would love to see it in person.

Hi Dan,

I forgot to say it's not mine but a pic I saw and kept cause like you, I think it looks great.

BTW...I am a former Pasadena person. Wife was born there and we lived there 9 years after marriage. We lived in Bungalow Heaven neighborhood. Old Town is great nowdays but it was fun back when Ernie Jr's taco house was there too and when Snotty Scotty played at the Loch Ness. Or when David Lee Roth hung out at the Burger place on Arroya Pkwy. Before your time in Pasadena I suppose.

"clear with the background blurry?"

IF it wasn't done in Photoshop or something, then then I'd bet that a Nikon defocussing lens was used - they have two of them in different focal lengths -- often used for portraits.

I like it a LOT. Rennwagen, the minilites look good, truly but I like the Fuchs better. If you go with full mini's put the center caps on them, just my $.02
