    39th Annual Concours d'Elegance of America at the Inn at St. John's

    I was lucky enough to get some tickets from my friend at Reliable Carriers for the Concours d'Elegance.

    There were a few MBs there, but the highlight for me was hearing the 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can Am start up. It made women and children run away and caused men of all ages run toward it like kids to the ice cream truck. I wish I would have shot a video.


    Here are a few of my favorites...













    Here was my wife's favorite:


    And my son's fav:


    Hope you enjoyed.

    A bit of trivia for those that would care. This Porsche 917 set the closed course speed record of 221.120 mph in 1975 at Talladega Speedway reaching 250 mph on the straights. Mark Donahue was at the wheel with 1190 hp on tap from the 5l flat 12 cyl. I believe the record still stands. I would have loved to hear It fire up too, Max.
    Thanks!

    It was a beast. Up to 100 mph in first gear.
