Went to GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan yesterday. It was about a seven hour round trip with lunch and perusing. They have a really nice collection that centers around Porsches as you open the door from the lobby to the warehouse. Highlight for me on the “Porsche wall” (which fronts you as you walk out from the lobby) was the black ’79 930, about half way down. It had the $169,900 sticker on it. Yup, sold. 15K and change miles. So original, so nice before their outlaw.
Next to it was a ’68 912 with roof rain gutter plugage, therefore rust damage below the right rear corner of the glass. Otherwise, a nice looking car. Lots of other cars and trucks to looks at. They say the FJs and Ford Broncos are flying off the shelves. Yeah, well kick me in the pants pocket for selling my ’74 FJ40. I liked the people and the atmosphere. It was west coast p—y for my Detroit players. As a guy that spent 14 years watching rust free collections drive off into the sunset, it was revival to be exposed to so much, so close together.
