1970 Porsche 911T Targa

On The Board

Classic Velocity

It took until March this year, but the first outing for the Targa is the crew breakfast in Frenchtown. A cold but clear morning with a great sunrise and a bridge with no traffic create a nice photo.....Serge has "Daisy" out for the occasion and we chat for a while as the early arrivals...

Pre-Hibernation

Classic Velocity

This outing was covered more fully in the main blog (see the Pre-Hibernation Ritual). This machine never disappoints. It starts without fail, runs like a champ with its original 2.2, and delivers big smiles per mile. You can be a hooligan, or head for the mountains or the shore for a weekend, or drive to Limerock and do a few spirited "parade laps".  On this day, we were hooning around the countryside in a mixture of machinery including much more modern performance machines. No problem.

Back to Frenchtown

Classic Velocity

It seems like a long time since the Targa has been out, but that is not quite accurate. The blog is missing some outings. On this day, it was back to Frenchtown for a meeting with the crew. I got to see Monde's new hot rod, Neal's 993, and Gytis' BMW /6. We got sprinkled on a bit, but it was a great day to be out with the car.

French Toast in Frenchtown

Classic Velocity

It always feels good to defy the odds, and in this case, I was able to drive the Targa to a regular breakfast with the gang. No big deal except is was December, and the temperature was in the 30s. The Targa has heat exchangers, and providing you are willing to live with the slight scent of Warm Castrol, you can have heat after a short time driving. It was good to see the crew and talk about cars among other things. Great cinnamon raisin French toast too....

Lovely Lunch

Classic Velocity

This excuse to run the Targa was simple, yet noteworthy and made the main blog (see A Simple Gathering) . The Early 911 guys were invited for a gathering at the home of Lewis Eig, and several of us made the journey. It was a good opportunity to stretch the legs of the Targa a bit, and it was a perfect day to have the top off. The car ran flawlessly over the 200 mile journey in the summer heat.

Circulating the Fluids

Classic Velocity

A perfect morning, and time to get the Targa off the trickle charger and out onto the roads. It started easily, and became the usual reliable steed after a few minutes. It is still cool out this early in the morning, and not a lot of traffic. The car had a nice run and then a stop for coffee. We are now officially ready for the season...
