Porsche Umbrella

Ok, had to share a fun little purchase I made recently- A genuine vintage Porsche umbrella.
Photos and story are on my website and thought some might find it interesting.

How about a Porsche blanket, in trade dress maroon, with logo?

It's in my car. It's a factory maroon "fleece-wool" lap blanket with nice porsche logo in the weave (not sewn on), that I had in my Speedster for 40 years. Photos to follow. Richard Roth, PCA Member 50 years.
