It's not just the cars - it's the people!

What’s New

Old School, New School

There was a wide variety of outstanding German machinery present at the recent DeutscheMarques event, held at the Gilmore Car Museum in early July. We had a replica of the earliest car, which actually runs, and a Porsche tractor. But near and dear to Porsche owner hearts was the display of a 1962 356B Super and a 2018 GT3 Touring edition, both in Smyrna Green. That was a special color back in 1962. The owner decided he liked it enough to commission an updated version, which resulted in a special order 2018 GT3 paint to sample. Set off by the definitely old school Shell gas station, these two cars together resulted in an awesome display.
