To celebrate the anniversary, the Goodwood Festival of Speed honored Porsche as the main central feature. The cars from the automaker were front and center and many historic machines made the legendary hill climb.
I was recently approached by a coworker asking if I knew if a taller person can drive a Porsche 356 comfortably. He is about 6’4” tall and enjoys motorcycles and wants to get into sports cars. He is hoping to purchase a classic 356 coupe.
He mentioned that he wasn’t sure if such a small car would fit him. He knows that I’ve had the chance to drive all of Porsche’s modern sports car lineup and that my daily driver is an early Porsche Boxster. His opinion of the Boxster is that he definitely couldn’t fit into it, but this is all based on the outside appearance and not sitting inside.
Summer is almost officially upon us and that means cars shows. Sure, there are plenty of Cars and Coffee events that you can see great cars, but the competition car shows are now well underway.
For us the car show season starts with the Cruisin’ Morro Bay Car Show. Of course if we were on the east coast Amelia Island is the show that starts things off, but that is all the way on the other side of the country. For us it starts in Morro Bay and all the car shows lead to the “grand daddy” of them all, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
