 Sharks In the Mountains   Back  Forward


“When we were finally allowed down, we were met with cheers and waves all the way! These people were surrounded by all manner of interesting racecars, and they were waving and cheering for US. Maybe I'm a little slow, but it wasn't until that moment that I realized that this "scene", if you will, is something special... even by enthusiast standards.

You just don't see that many 928s, not in ten years, never mind dozens of them parading through a tiny town in the Appalachians. The 928 is an important marker in the history of sports cars, and enthusiasts respond to it. We're preserving our culture here, a small piece of the answer to why there are car guys.”
(quote by unknown? 928 Owner at SITM 2001)
