The Museum of Flying at the Santa Monica Airport is headed up by its curator and designer, Dan Ryan who seems to have a great sense of "Man and his Machine". The Museum holds many events outside the aviation realm including the Annual Porsche Club of America Grand Concours, which literally takes over the whole premises. We were there with the 64 Ivory White over Red 356 and I threw out the "Moving Blanket" in front, strategically parked (getting there very early for an optimum spot), and setting up Z911Partsstore, Beach Blanket style!
Jerry Seinfeld and the "Usual Suspects" showed up making the day even that much more apparent to the pure appeal of the Porsche art form. Brianna Becker, PCA's LA Region President, pulled off a spectacular job! Great vendors, great food trucks, great events and contests! The California sun pierced through the clouds and by the end of the day, we were "talked out" and looked like lobsters but it was well worth it..
Peoples Choice went to an Aubergine early 911 that was off the charts. The machine was near flawless and the color, the color! Enjoy the pictures!
