Have been tinkering with my other hobbie the last weeks.

My own toy is the Porsche 959 that i have been part of my family since 1995 .
I am the third owner , delivered the 13 december 1987 to the first owner, Dr Werner....he kept it for a Little over a year, then sold to the swede Axelsson. He had the car stored til i bought it september -95.

Personally i do not see this as an supercar, it´s an special Porsche.
The ride is way to soft and more like an grand turismo.
Summer Seasons are kind of short here , lots of things to do.
So driving this one is rare.
Have some other cars that i use more often.
Moved the 59 to the other garage i spend my days in, to freshen up the paint and the interior, needed some attention.

The garage is open to the public and stores many other nice vintage cars.

Here is some freshly taken shoots from today and yesterday.











The other car standing beside mine is an Shelby Mustang Gt 350 1967 that i have spent 5 full years to build to my boss. Its an original genuine Shelby that had a lot of bodyrust and needed alot of attention.
I have modded alot of stuff on it to keep up with the demands of the owner.

Did not buy it for its look´s at all.

Everbody can buy an turbo or an gt 2, still the 59 is quicker on the street, not at a track.
I love technical inventions and the gruppe B era that was crazy.
First Porsche that could break the speed of an 59 came last year.

Hans.

Superb car to have, and great garage.

You say it is open to the public, maybe a group of us could come over in 2014.

When does you winter end? When would be a good time to visit?
