I’m writing this from the comfort of my home, after eventful air travel back to the Carolinas, another Treffen successfully concluded. Before the remaining event photos, I thought everyone would appreciate Zuffenhaus rental car return policy – leave no fuel unburnt: We had 3 miles to go at the time of this photo – it likely stalled on the check-in attendant as we headed for the terminal 😉 Here are the rest of the photos from the event: (the owner of MS Road & Race) Thanks to both Chris and Freeman for another great Treffen experience! Everyone else – stay …
Some more randomness from Solvang.
No, not the challenging aftermarket bumpers/tail – the engine compartment ‘glass inspired by the historic Porsche race engines. Here are some pictures of what I’m referring to, taken from engine bay of a fellow rGruppe member’s ’72. Being the barely-amateur iPhone photographer that I am, I can’t possibly capture the light, texture, and tone of raw engine compartment fiberglass. Coupled with patinated aluminum and magnesium and yellow cad plated fasteners it creates a stunning, vintage aesthetic worthy of cooling fan whine and gutteral sport muffler sounds.
Hello from the 13th RGruppe Treffen in Solvang, CA! Zuffenhaus has been fortunate to be a part of the organization since 2006 and has enjoyed memorable drives and late night parking lot shenanigans over the years.

Well, it’s 3:52am on the last day of the Techno Classica 2010, and we (the US Zuffenhaus team) are having to depart a day early, leaving Europe in the capable hands of Leonard and Daan Stolk, our friends and counterparts in the Netherlands. It’s been a productive week. For those of you who haven’t been to Essen for Techno Classica, it is a huge vintage car event, full of Barrett Jackson-esque sales and PRI-style trade displays, with a swap meet and vendor hall thrown in. The Messe in Essen in which it is held is an extrodinarily large collection of …
