It's no great secret that I live on the mainland now, and that means that lots of cool sugar is invariably not much of a drive or a train ride away. We've had guests over this past week, and one of them is in the final stages of restoring his insanely early RHD 911. Which was pretty much the flimsy excuse I needed for us to take a trip over to Gelderland...

Of course, there is a 'conventional' Porsche dealer on the same plot:

We spent hours there, and they were kind enough to let my friend properly poke about the unrestored '65, all the while plying us with coffee, juice, and snacks. Turns out he had some bits they needed, and I bought a history folder for my 914. So they ended up giving us books, plate frames, and pull-back cars for my boys as well. Ace.

Some stunning machinery there and a nice bonus with the freebies "for the boys"

I was happy with my freebies, too:

Was in Porsche Centrum Amsterdam a few days later getting bits for the 914 and they gave me a properly lovely book about their hybrid racing programme. :)
