Not my photo, but a photo I can appreciate!

I’ve always said that if you can’t afford a Porsche, you obviously need t9 spend more time at the beach. Smile

Sadly, due to a relatively minor problem with my piriformis muscle, sitting in a low-slung car is uncomfortable, and depressing a clutch pedal has become, quite literally, a pain the the butt, so an old Porsche is not in my future. But those early Porsches really appeal to me. What an amazing, and very light, car. Those old 912s didn’t have a lot of power, but they handled better than a 911, because they had a more favorable F/R balance.

I take care of an old one and an even older one... no pains from driving yet but working on/maintaining them can certainly test the limits of flexibility in my body. Luckily my wife shares an appreciation for them & is right there with me to help out in a tough spot.

Nice pair. I’ve always wanted a ‘71 911 T, for drivability and it’s docile nature.

They certainly have character, a personality. Similar to a guitar.

The classic Deora has always been a favorite... but this one may be my favorite surf car - since it's mine - 67 Pontiac Lemans convertible with my band, The Toys all loaded in...

Gosh, actually, a toy car is something I can afford at the moment! I can't wait to save up enough money for a good car. At this point, I've collected a lot of old models already. I've even found real cars at a museum that are exact replicas of my collectibles. I mean my toys are the same as real cars! Too bad I don't have classic car driving experience, so I'd get myself one of those real ones. Of course, when I save up the money. But it would be nice to get one as a gift. I know it's all a dream, but it would be cool.

I have a Porsche 944. Awesome car. Best £1500 i ever spent. I can fit an 8 foot surfboard in it. I rarely if ever put boards on the roof.

Not the "surfiest" in all the land, but here's my '59 Apache! It has hauled more than one surfboard! It's got a lot of character, as is pretty quick! 427" small block! C5 Corvette cross drilled and slotted brakes. All the goodies, except a pretty paint job!

In 1987 at my second and last trip to California I found a pictue postcard of a Rolls Rolls convertible with a surfboard stuck in it. In 1993 I showed it to THE CRUNCHER aka Herbert Hooke when we were preparing the release of an international various artists cd with bands from four countries like America, Canada,Germany and Great Britain.
Some reactions to the cover where very negative (how do you dare to have on the cover a car made in England and not it the U.S.A.???). People still have not understood that the car stands for brillance - and that was/is what we at NPR RECORDS were striking for - back then and still today. The foto was shot by John Brad Wagner, Sr. who gave us the permission to use it for this cd release!!
