Auto Atlanta

August 8, 2010

Spent an afternoon last week @ the world renown Auto Atlanta.  I was told about this place by a friend who works there as a Technician.  After a brief description, and run through of the history of the place I knew it was not just an ordinary Porsche service shop.  Once again I am in a place full of so much history I never knew about.  Known very well in the Porsche Community as the place to get anything 914 past and present.  The owner George has collected some of the rarest and most rarely seen 914s over Auto Atlanta’s 32 year run.  Jon and I arrived kind of late in the afternoon, so we did not have much time with the cars to take many pictures.  But Jon was able to capture a few of a customers car being serviced a 911 (930) Turbo along with the wide load BBS wheels, and whale tail.  Not being too familiar with Porsche in general it was a real treat to see some of these cars people dream about!
