Swannanoa Tour

Yesterday, over 40 members of the club enjoyed a leisurely drive thru the countryside on the way to Swannanoa. We had a fantastic lunch at Edelweiss. After lunch we drove up to Swannanoa and enjoyed a walk thru their beautiful gardens and a guided tour of the old mansion. A more complete story is forthcoming but in the meantime, here are a few pictures from the event. Thanks to David Hay and Al Johnston for the pictures.

When you did not get sport Chrono, improvise.

Bring a Trailer

One of my old friends had a beautiful RS America so when I saw this, I thought I would put it in the blog for your enjoyment.

This 1993 Porsche 911 is one of 701 RS America examples produced during a two-year production run and was acquired by the selling dealer in June 2018. It is finished in Guards Red over black cloth and is powered by a 3.6-liter flat-six paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. Equipment includes a fixed rear spoiler, 17″ Cup wheels, an Alpine cassette radio and CD changer, sport seats, air conditioning, and red seatbelts and door pulls. This RS America shows 54k miles and is offered with a window sticker, service records, factory literature, a tool kit, a clean Carfax report, and a clean New York title.

The sticker price was about $68K. It currently stands at $105K in the bidding. Pretty car.

Porsche Gone Bad


By now, most of you know I had an early love affair with Jaguars. Back in the sixties, I had XK120s and XK150s, a couple of 3.4 and 3.8 sedans and an E-Type. Then I bought my first Porsche, a 356S.

Of course I lusted after the notorious D-Type. So, when Marc Wilson offered me a drive down the street in his replica, i could hardly say no. I took a very cautious drive down the side roads and then Marc showed me how agile it is. I must say, it was very smooth on acceleration and easy shifting. The clutch was a typical on/off racing clutch. No, I did not embarrass myself and stall it. A thrill for a lifetime.
