And now for something completely different, part II

What’s this funny wheel doing on my 911 ?

It’s a space saver spare wheel from a 944. Made from aluminum, it’s probably the best looking spare wheel ever. So good looking, it has already a following among the 356 rat rod community.

burnt orange I.M.
But how did it ended up here ? Well, last Sunday I entered my first time regularity rally, and right on the first 10 minutes, a surplus of enthusiasm sent me right into a small ditch. Fortunately, only my pride and the front left wheel were damaged. But… I was not carrying a spare, only a useless gas can…


Alas, the gods were smiling on me. 200 meters away, a marshall was standing by next to his Porsche 944 ! He readily offered his spare and 30 minutes later we were “flying” again.

As for the rally, I loved the experience, so I will be back for more. The organization, by Mafraclassicos, was almost spotless despite being all volunteers. First place went to the gentleman in the Audi quattro…


Second place to this beautiful Renault Turbo II…


And the next ones I can’t recall, but they were stunning to look at…
