program called the "Allure of the Automobile" “rolling works of art” built from 1930 to 1965.

This car raced in the La Carrera Pan Americana races in the 60's.

The next 2 pics are cars of friends who also raced in the
La Carrera Pan Americana races... But these cars raced the last 2 years.

This race is the only race of its kind in the world still running.
3000 miles.
Reminds me of the movie.. The CannonBall Run.

Some people believe that the 904 is the prototype cayman.

That first picture sure looks like the inspiration for our Cayman. The front windshield and roofline is the stongest link for me
