Farewell To 2015 Racers and Collectors Reflect

It's only a few hours and another year will be over. You had a good year but it is nice to look forward to an even better 2016, but before we pass on to the new and improved here's a really good review of the past year as well as the past in general from Hagerty insurance. 

This video has something for everyone, I guarantee it.  You may feel a bit emotional as you watch and the memories flood in from times gone by, or you may get excited about the prospect of a new project you are about to embark on in 2016.

Before you see the video- here's my big New Year's present to my two 'children'.-  My Boxster and the GTA finally get to sleep in the garage again after being out in the cold every night for two weeks while I unpacked after moving in to our newly remodeled house.   The Boxster is no longer giving up space for boxes!

Enjoy this end of year video and see how many of these cars or tricks you have owned!  Farewell to the legends in the video- we will miss you!

We have come a long way but the journey is never over!

All I Want For Christmas

What do you want?  Fill in the blank with whatever- from a Porsche to world peace.  It can be anything, but this is the time of the year we reflect back and see what happened this year and hopefully some of what we want will come true.  du  Pont Registry Cars & Coffee in St. Petersburg FL is a good place to get ideas as to what he or she might want.

                                                             Special Mention

For every Porsche fan, a  new 911 would not be bad, but in the case of one lucky Porsche Club of America member who won the lottery allowing him to buy a 60th anniversary  Porsche 911 GTS Club Coupe in Club Blau, that takes the top gift of the year.  There will only be 60 produced to mark Porsche's 60th anniversary, so you could say that's a unique Christmas gift. 

In the case of everyone else out there here's some pictures that will get you dreaming of some cool 'toys' for you.  I've included a link to the Hans Peter Porsche web site of fabulous toys. If you are into modeling and toys, could be considered the best in the world.   Santa- are you listening?  Readers of this blog may be emailing you today with their wish list.

From the December 19th Cars & Coffee. I present these suggestions:

Waiting For Santa
How About A Ferrari

Or A Caddy

An Alpha Will Do

Or A Rolls Royce
An Old Pantera or,

A Tiny Dancer That Comes With A Corvette

Year End Wrap Up - On A Lighter Note Hilarious!

It has been a tough year, the race teams are tired and it is time for the Holidays so I thought I'd send out something light to lighten up your spirits.  Here's just a few little clips that will give us all another look at the crazy world we are in and give you a few laughs before having to prepare for the next race.
(By the way, IMSA's Daytona Rolex 24 Hour is only a month away!)

To Start- Porsche fans, don't do this with your Porsche:

For Trap and Skeet Fans- this is really cool.  Click below

Next up is a little Formula 1 fun and since I'm short on F-1 photos except for my old black and whites check out my new T-Shirt design:

And I can't help but throw in a 6 wheeled Tyrrell to go along with the strange and wacky theme:
