01 Porsche Carrera Cab.

Stack of receipts 2" thick of all the work done to this car. Exterior and interior in very good condition.
The bad....Rear window has yellowed, and it has 175,000 miles on it.
The good....Runs great, and because of the high miles, I`m selling it cheap.
$12,500.00

Re: Call for Stories/Info on the History of CSCC

I remember running at Dodger stadium, Orange Co fairgrounds, Terminal island, I don`t remember what it was called, but the lot across from Long beach airport.
Also, OCIR, but I don`t think they were SCCSCC events (bug-in maybe ?)

Re: Call for Stories/Info on the History of CSCC

I remember it well...... I was anouncing in Curly`s RV. Gail was driving the VW, and I saw the trail of oil mist coming from the rear end of the car. By looking at it, I knew the drain plug had come out of the sump. So, I had Gail RED FLAGGED ! She did what she was supposed to do, and came to a quic...

Dick Gulstrand (Mr. Corvette)

I was thinking of his recent passing and it reminded me of when he was a guest speaker at the old SCCSCC seasons end banquet and trophy dinners.
I was the MoC, and so my wife and I had the pleasure of sitting at his table for dinner.
Great stories. Being MoC had it`s perks.

Re: Insane finish

Then it would be called a race. Years ago, we had an event @ Dodger stadium. There were two courses, a right and a left. Two runs on each with a combined time, lowest wins. It started with a fairly long (1/8 ? mi.) straight away, so it was a drag race to start. It was ALOT of fun. My VW pissed off a...

She spent the last week and a half of her life at St. Bernadine Hospital. Thats the hospital that Ma...
