Greetings all

....I got an unexpected call at 7am this morning from a nice journo from Wheels Magazine, who is driving a new 997 Carrera S across Australia...."can we meet to photograph your 901 (the first RHD 911 delivered new in Australia) with the new series 997 this morning?"

They had a 1000km leg west to fit into today but managed an hour or so with SA119. Lucky I'm in the inner city.

Not sure when the issue is due out. Forgive the totally junky pic....my camera made funny noises and having seen the pics now I think I need a new one....nothing is made to last these days (but, if you look closely, those are matchbox cars affixed to the red-brick wall above the two cars- thousands of them).

We did some still shots and some close nose to tail "action" ones.

An interesting early morning surprise.

Cheers all

Stew.

That's really cool.

and the consultant is right....there's more than just a passing resemblance.

I love my car. Buy your own

I assumed there was a mirror there until I saw the Kluger in the background.   ;)

Thanks for the comments.

The funny thing is, I didn't even know that wall existed, I led them there by accident. They wanted a Richmond laneway urban location......

When we got out of the cars, the guy from Wheels looks up and said, "ahh, the famous car wall !".

Hilarious.

Cheers.

Stew,

you will have to do a write up on your Porsche, sounds like there is some history there.

Interested to hear more about it.   :)
