Thanks Peter, but it sounds like some of our forums members may have garages full of fun rides. The Airstream - Porsche nexus is seeming quite widespread.

I am quite happy about how well it worked out this summer towing the 911 along. Even made it over a couple of high passes in Colorado. Really reinforced the good results of the projects done in prep for the trip.

I'm thinking of heading to the South East in late winter for visits with family and I'm still hunting for a sweet spot for a base camp . Austin will most likely be on my route. I'll check ahead to make sure you are not booked up. :-)

Yep Ryker, it's a 1980 S C. Frankencar. 79 engine, Carrera brakes, etc. my first P-car and a great intro. And it too is Metallic Black,

Cheers Richard

Nice pair of rides there Gunter, has the 66 been with you for long.
Ah. 1966 a great year. Any pics for us?

So we have some corvette love, Porsche guys, and I think I've heard mention of some from the dark side, the land of Lukas, the Britts. Had me some way back when. Had a A H bug eye sprite, M G A 1500, M G Magnette sedan, TR 4,
All good fun. Sorry no pics left.

I met some folks with a 345 this summer who towed a Karmann Ghia

Any one else want to share?

Ryker, Sounds like you won't mind if your thread runs off in this direction a bit, I hope.

Cheers Richard

Full disclose. I've had a few fun P-cars, but none at the same time. I'm a man of humble means and have always been priced out of the 911.

Love the Ghia, had a black 64 at one time. Also a VW 68 camper which was my intro to RVing.
I have had my 78 911sc for almost 23 years now. It has not been towed except to the shop one time...ha.
I recently added a 73 VW Thing to my garage, and we have a 2001 Miata SE that's is an awesome little ride.
The Thing came with a tow bar and that's how I brought it home.

No shame b p g Austin, we've even had some 928 fans fess up here :-)

I'd love to drive one of those V8 machines sometime.

And the classic 911s are certainly running up in price. I'm just waiting till I can trade my old S C. For a newish Cayman S straight across.

Nice pic ALANSD, is that your yard? Beautiful, lets go for a drive when I get over your way.

Cheers Richard

When I went to test drive it, the seat was too far back for me..and stuck there. I was able to loosen it at home with spray and a breaker bar.
The owner drove it and I noticed it was sluggish and missing a bit. He was embarrassed and told me he had not had it on the road in at least a year.
Not a smart way to sell a car. It helped me get the price down, and I towed it home along with a spare engine, 4 more wheels and tires, and 5 boxes of parts and documentation.
All it needed was fresh gas, and the carb adjusted. Runs great now. Just has the small oil drip they all seem to have.

Nice thing you got there Alan. Looks to have been breathed on a bit.
Light too, are you thinking of it as a possible toad?

I wish I had a motor home to tow it with, but we tow our 66 Overlander.
The Thing has an 1835 with dual exhaust, Weber carb, Petronix ignition, lots of updates also.
Air shocks, etc.

Ah yes, Alan I'd forgotten you have one of those silly airstreams without a motor in it.
JUST JOKING FOLKS !

Not trying to start anything between the motorhome guys vs the trailer folks.
Nice in fact of them to have us along on their site like they do. :-)

Cheers Richard

The 1966 has been with me for 25 years. Sorry for taking this thread in a different direction.

Always room for you, Richard
I recently drove my 310 in the backyard and was able turn it around without too much trouble. So if push comes to shove, we'll set you up a nice camp spot back there.
