  1. Wonderful event thanks to the organisers and participants. I think special mention needs to go to the owner of the tangerine 2.4 who drove his car from Brisbane, picked his partner up in Sydney and then continued onto Colac. They left around lunch time with the view to reach Melbourne last night via the Great Ocean Road. of course I have forgotten their names ( but remember the car). To both of you my hearty congratulations. Justin
  2. It’s that the Peter Bartels (ex Fosters) car? we were at the 1994 Porsche Club Nationals and I seem to remember there was a silver one (reputedly Lindsay Fox’s) and this one which seems to be Swiss Registered? justin

  5. Wonderful looking event Cam.... and congrats on the CS the week I was lucky enough to have the Riviera Blue Melbourne Motor Show car is permanently etched on my memory am thinking I might need to drive over from Melbourne to attend one in 2018. jr
  6. he means the original (historic) dealer RRP lists..... With stamps / letter heads from the dealers of the day - eg John Newell, Scuderia Veloce, Hamiltons St Yarra etc etc. Justin
  7. Yes the Armidale to Wauchope road is great (via Walcha). And also the range back towards the coast (to Grafton I think) is great. Sadly I've done neither road in my old 911, rather my daily drives. Justin
  8. the Spirit of Australia 924 GTR came back to Australia I believe. This could be an urban myth, but the car was apparently very hurriedly prepared.... and it showed. The Porsche board had given the race department the green light to run the Jules sponsored 936/81's only months before the start of the race. One of these 936's won the race. So the 924 came back here - with a very generous spare parts package (believed to have been free). It was driven by Colin Bond as a sister car to Alan Jones in the 935. Heavens knows where it is now?
  9. The Targa pictures were when Andrew Miedecke owned the car I think.... I recall it ran in several Targas, with good success. Tasmanian Porsche dealer John Pooley also ran the car with a degree of success against much newer and more powerful cars. It was great to see it at Rennsport in 2013 - but it hasnt been seen since. I wonder where it now resides? Justin
  10. Thanks for the feedback 9er. Yes, I think its very reasonably priced. Justin
  11. I have a 2.4t 7r short motor for sale. Engine type 911/96, engine number 6139420. What you get :- crankcase, crank, connecting rods, oil pump and intermediate shaft and gear. This bottom end would be ideal for a spare or hot rod engine project. My intentions for this engine have changed hence the sale. Has been thoroughly checked out by Autohaus Hamilton in Sydney and the engine has been pronounced healthy. The crankcase will require align boring prior to building into your dream hot rod motor. Engine is all boxed up for shipping, and I would prefer to sell as a package. Located in Sydney. Buyer to pay freight. $4000 ono, or I will part out and sell individual components.

    I plan to drop by, on my way back from the 356 Parade. Will be in my early 911, and am relatively new to Melbourne, so presume everyone will be relatively easy to find? Everyone will be around the cars wearing Porsche t-shirts!? Justin
  13. Yes - departing Melbourne Sunday. I'll be helping a number of the Aussies who have shipped cars over - a number of Carrera 2.7's, a 964 RSR, and Ron Goodman and his super rapid 356. Quite a party going from NSW, Qld, and typ 901. Justin
