Great pics and videos! Thanks for taking the time to post them.

Did you happen to see a 56 bent window coupe in Sahara beige (sand colored) with a maroon interior and maroob wheels? I know that car before it was sold to someone in France.

I know the area well -- my favorite place in France is Alsace!

Hello Pat, about 250 cars were present, amongst them 4 '56 Coupe, but if memory serves I have not noticed a one like you are describing.

Tiffany and I drove our '59 back to Stuttgart from the event this AM. The event was spread out over a broad area of the region, and exceptionally managed by the French club. Beautiful roads and countryside.

Thanks for posting the pictures. .................... Jim.

PS. Next year Portugal.

@ Stephan:
Thanks for the picture of my car (aka the banana) in front of the Hilton.
Love it! Would you mind sending me a link to download a high res?

This was my 1st international meeting and I loved it.
Here is a video just posted by the organisers with a panoramic shot of all cars at the Mulhouse museum. Grand!

Suffering some jet-lag from returning last evening I've gathered 5 photos that may be of interest. I hope these upload successfully.

The regional Porsche Distributor dispatched two experienced mechanics to stay with us over the weekend. They were working about 24 hours a day and did an outstanding job. Seems a few generators met their end on this tour.

A few of us miscreants blew off the afternoon ralley and played chase to a beautiful winery in the Alsatian hills.
