Porsche Crest Dana Point Concours

The 356 Club held their annual concours in Dana Point today. Weather was beautiful and there was a great turnout of cars and people. If anyone is interested, a few photos are posted here:

J.J. -
Indeed it is not too late in Ottawa! There was an MG on the lawn, next to the 904's and a Porsche tractor. as I understand it, the MG has an interesting Porsche connection. The car was owned by Tony Lapine, the well known Porsche designer, and while he admired the design, he felt the car was lacking in certain details and so he and the folks at Weissach totally rebuilt the car using a Fiat (?) motor and a large number of Porsche parts (including some very trick 904 pieces that were integrated into the car).

car was raced hard and is extremely fast!
but the folks in weissach didn't have that much to do with the build. that was a family matter with the exception of Armin Altmann, who was Tony's main fabricator in the design studio. he was key during the build. of course there were more that contributed. but the main builders were Tony and my brother!
the build took over 7 years to complete!
