New Oldies Pix (VSCDA Blackhawk Farms Meet #7)

The (911 RSR clone) Porsche page.  There was a nice 911 at this year's meet too, and at least one
914-6.  But no 356's, 924's, or 944's.

The large entry this year resulted in a lot of temporary "1's" taped ahead of the cars' permanent competition numbers.

The oil cooler is vented a la 917 too, rather than under the car as normal.

  The sound that comes out of those pipes at 6000 r.p.m.+ is glorious.  I believe John Wyer said in his memoirs that the
Wyer-Gulf colors came straight out of Triumph's paint codes for Spitfires.  The screaming orange was called Marigold.

That's a mighty fine piece.

Don't know if it's a 2.3, or ++, or what. Didn't get to talk to the owner. It GOES like a 3.0+ and revs like little one... A reason to go back next year (to find out). Last Blackhawk post of that BP Corvette-eating Sunbeam Tiger tomorrow.
