Something To Do On a Rainy Day

I took the opportunity to go through some photos of a car show I went to back in 2011.  It's called the Taj Ma Garaj Ronald McDonald House benefit.  A local gentleman name John Dixon stated it many years ago.  The name goes along with an automobile garage that specializes in foreign cars but mainly Porsches.  He also has a banquet center of 23,000 sq. ft. that is loaded with Porsche cars that in some cases have a ton of history in the racing world or as specials.  You can visit it here  Don't skip this link, there are Porsches that you have never seen before like the stretch lemo or the wrought iron VW Beetle (yes, that is the first Porsche built, just not raced).

John passed away recently after a long battle with cancer.  Here's hoping someone will continue his service in the community.

I think this is a 1987 911 Carrera, the year is what I'm not sure about and that is a factory Turbo look that was ordered.  Flat 6 - 3.2 litre, air cooled, 5 speed G50 transmission with approx. 214 HP that got 16 city and 23 highway mpg.  Not bad for 1987.

If you see me coming you will undoubtedly see me........
