Fantastic event as usual. Lots of TransAm cars there for 50th anniversary, what a spectacle to see them coming over the crest and leave like 200' of rubber.

There was a Bizzarini Strada and Lola Cosworth v8 that really rang my bell.

Lots of beautiful Porsche, could have been more 356's.

The Yellow Speedster was a "pick of the Paddock" and shacked up with a few very special cars.

I believe the Birdcage won the concourse.

Anyone here attend??? This is a must see event, racing and concourse all in one weekend.

Van ran well, got a lot of attention with the vintage camper and bikes. We camped track side, this time brought the kids and they had a blast. Walking through the paddock at night was an incredible experience for all of us.

Next year I will be there with my car!!!!

More pics I would like to post but having problems with server at work, some new security thing driving me crazy! Sorry I could not include more 356 pics, maybe tomorrow.

I attended not with my Porsche, but a 1926 Three Liter Bentley, next year if you bring the children, I can give them a ride around the track..You first photo is the WACH SPECIAL owned and raced by Bill Haupt. M. Lee Wachs built the car in 1967 , Porsche powered on a modified VW platform.. It still goes quite well. Bill would like to find a new home for the car ! Thanks for the photos as I did not get to see all the cars! Frank Allocca

Hi Frank, gorgeous car! Part of the stunning "Gatsby's delight" group. Congratulations, I believe you may have received an award?

Thanks for the offer! My kids would be thrilled to ride in that car, we spent quite a bit of time looking at these and I was surprised how interested they were in these early cars. It took us like an hour just to go the first 100 yards through the concourse, where you car was. I believe my son has pics of your car on his Ipad, will try to post them if I can pry that thing from his hands.

I did not know what the Wach special was and could find little info about it, since I did not know the name and it was not coming up in Porsche searches. It does indeed still go quite well!

Thanks,

Mark

Thanks Frank,

I live in central VT, good chance Ben and I will cross paths sometime if he attends local car events.

If ever doing a tour up this way feel free to PM me, would love to follow along in the 356C, or (gasp) the 66 Dodge.

Mark
