Trying to wrap my mind around how one delivers two Porsches.



Or maybe like this, though technically this is only 1 1/2 Porsches:

Whatcha mean?

I transport exotic cars (97% Porsche.) I use a 2004 Ford van with a 6.0 Powerstroke, which tows a 2 car enclosed trailer. Here are some of my pics:

















This is 5 million dollars worth of cars between these 2!


...and it was tight!


Steve McQueen's personal 911 (in the front). It's the car he used in the movie,"Le Mans".

This was the first car I hauled with an enclosed trailer. The guy bought me an enclosed trailer ($6500) to get it done immediately. I was the right guy, in the right place, at the right time. I had to go find and buy a trailer, drive 100 miles to San Diego to pick the car up, and take it straight to Seattle...all within 2.5 days.


Paul Newman's racecar.


I started out hauling Harleys. I still have this V10 Ford truck. It has just under 700K miles on it. It's my back-up truck...


My current set-up.




More toys:












The red 911 finished 1st at Pebble Beach this year.












This car got 2nd place at Pebble Beach this year...Yep, I hauled the top two cars this year!

Some of the places I frequent:
(The Great Dane is mine...named, "Bullitt".)














I towed this once behind the van...only once. The dually tows it just fine.




This car is worth millions. It's the original "Lightweight".

We have a Winner for the post with the most monetary value!

BTW, for some reason that all white garage, with all white cars, is just plain creepy.
(Or, is that your garage, given you have a white van, white pickup?)

You have carried some very nice cars!

I've been in auto museums that didn't have the beauty that those garages do. I'm impressed!

Can we change the title of this thread to "Car Envy"?
