editor’s report

“Porsche Report” is the official magazine of The Porsche Club of South Australia (ABN 36 370 887 701) Publisher: The Porsche Club of South Australia PO Box 2209, Kent Town, SA 5071 web site: www.pcsa.asn.au email: douglas.m@internode.on.net Editor: Phillip Kellett Mobile: 0409 931 193 Email: phillip.kellett@bluescopesteel.com

My name is Phillip Kellett and it is my great pleasure to be given the opportunity to head this accomplished publication. It’s funny how things happened really as I can vaguely remember suggesting to Roger that, you know, in the fullness of time perhaps I could take charge and give him a well earned break. At first I only saw a trickle as Roger fought to hang on, but like an avalanche the instructions, photographs, articles and contacts came tumbling into my world. I must admit it was a little daunting at first but with terrific support from Roger, the Committee, a host of supportive club members and my understanding wife to get me through it has now all come together quite nicely. Having said that I know I have big shoes to fill as the magazine is currently as good as I have ever seen it with the standard well and truly set by Roger and David and Barbara before him. I am also fortunate in having Mike Rogers as Advertising Manager and I know he will do exceptionally well for us in this role. We have a great magazine for you and if you are a Porsche 356 fan you will be particularly pleased with this issue. David Wiffen and Bob Taylor have quite industriously tracked down and reviewed some very special cars with their owners and I’m sure you will be delighted with the results. We have even managed to find a story from a 1954 issue of Wheels magazine covering the new Porsche 356 which you might find interesting, or amusing, you decide. They don’t write them like they used to, which is probably a good thing. Additionally there are some terrific shots from our Show and Shine event as well as several fine reports covering the usual club events held in 5

the first quarter with a few other bits and pieces thrown in to keep you interested as well. I hope you approve. As many of our members know 2013 is the 50th year of the ‘911’! This significant milestone is being celebrated all over the world and your club will be celebrating too, with a special weekend planned for the 25th - 27th October, right here in Adelaide. Initial plans are to start with a ‘Black Tie’ event on the Friday night and then have a full day with the cars on the Sunday with a parade of fifty 911’s driving through the city. We plan to start this parade in North Adelaide, passing through the city, stopping at the Porsche Centre and then heading out to the hills, finishing at Harndorf. Of course we will want all members to be involved in the event, so mark it in your diaries. – 911 50th year celebration - 25th to 27th October 2013. Contact Bob Weekes if you have any questions or would like to put your name down for being one of the 911’s involved on the Sunday. You can contact Bob on email, bobweekes993@yahoo.com.au or phone him on 0422 542 123. I am a big believer that this magazine needs to be first and foremost about the cars and members of this great club. We will continue to highlight the people and events that make this club so welcoming, active and fun. I encourage you all to get involved and support the club activities. Whether that involves tearing around Mallala like Lowndes or just breaking bread with friends or anything in between you can be assured of a warm welcome and a good time. In the short time I have been looking after the magazine I have had valuable feedback from several people on new ideas for future issues. If you have anything that you would particularly like to see in the magazine, drop me a line, or pull me aside if you see me at an event and share your ideas. It’s your magazine, it should be filled with content you want to see.

I know what you’re thinking, where’s Roger? Well Roger is taking a well earned break from Editing and Advertising as his workload has increased considerably in recent times. To be honest how he managed to successfully juggle positions of Editor, Advertising Manager, Secretary and Motorkhana Director all at the same time is beyond me, and apparently he has a job and a wife to look after as well. The man is insane but the club thanks him dearly for his contribution.

president’s report It has been a busy period with club runs, dinners, sprints, motorkhana’s and a hill climb. There is only one sprint remaining in the drivers’ championship for this year. Things are tight at the top and if there’s any indication it’s between Rob Harrison and Roger Patterson, however watch out for the dark horse!! A lot of members are off to Rennsport at Eastern Creek in May in various classes from competition to socializing. I’m sure it’s going to be a great weekend! Report next issue. This year is the 50th anniversary of the 911. Our master of ceremonies for display events, Bob Weekes, will be organizing a run from the City to Hahndorf with a display at the Hahndorf Primary school oval. What we need is a 911 from every year, all models included. Mark the date in your social calendar now and contact Bob if you can help with your particular vehicle. Remember while the boys talk cars the girls can check out the local German shops! It was great to see several new Hill climbers at (a wet) Winter Cup 1. Roger Patterson had the GT 3 going well with all those “aids”. Three hundred horse power without them was a bit of a handful! Ryan Reynolds had the Boxster singing and took out first place.

Again several new competitors competed at the last motorkhana; even I competed in Rogers’s alzimers tests! I may even take a liking to the event in the future, if I can remember what day it’s on!

By the time you all read this we are coming up to the AGM. Now is the time to think about what you want out of the club and what you can contribute to this great club to make it better. If you want to complain about it put your hand up to change it. It’s very hard to please all members some of the time let alone all of the time! We are all volunteers trying to do the best for the club.

Great Racing, Great Cars, Great Porsche Spirit Thumbs Up for inaugural Porsche Rennsport Australia Festival

Porsche fans in Australia have given the country’s inaugural Rennsport Festival a resounding vote of approval.

American Le Mans Series LMP2 Porsche RS Spyder, the ex-Vern Schuppan Porsche 956C from the Japanese Sportscar

Porsches old and new, from road and track, local and abroad together with famous faces and enthusiasts of the German marque filled Sydney Motorsport Park on the May 25-26 weekend in a celebration of all things Porsche.

Championship of the mid ‘80s, the Le Mans class-winning 996 RSR from 2002 and the ex-Alan Hamilton 1968 911 TR – the car that, as Alan Hamilton relayed on the weekend, “came within 10 yards” of winning the 1969 Australian Touring Car Championship.

The superb on-track action from twin one-hour Porsche Carrera Cup Australia enduros and triple header Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge presented by Pirelli races was complemented with a showcase of stunning and priceless Porsches both on display and on track. In all, more than 240 Porsches took to the circuit in the weekend’s 37 track events with another 120 immaculately presented in the Porschestrasse display, Concours d’Elegance and Show’n’Shine. Together with privately owned vehicles driven to Rennsport the total number of Porsches at Sydney Motorsport Park was estimated at more than 500, with a crowd of approximately 4,000 over the two days. In Carrera Cup action it was Elite Class driver Max Twigg and V8 enduro specialist Luke Youlden that took round three honours while up-and-comer Richard Muscat took a clean sweep of victories in the GT3 Cup Challenge presented by Pirelli. Historic race cars drawing special attention on and off the circuit were the 1981 Le Mans-winning Porsche 936, 2005/6 8

A Porsche new car showroom display, Porsche Kids Driving School, Porsche Panamera NSW Police Car and skidpan and 4WD off-road activities with the Porsche Sports Driving School ensured there was never a dull moment for Porsche aficionados. “The feedback from Porsche competitors, Porsche car club members and the general public to the inaugural Rennsport Ferstival in Australia has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Porsche Cars Australian Managing Director, Michael Winkler.

“You measure the success of special events such as this not only by what happens on track but by the number of smiles and feeling of camaraderie in the garages.” The milestone event was celebrated on the Saturday evening with a gala dinner for 220 special guests, acknowledging past and present Porsche legends in Australia including: Porsche distributor Alan Hamilton, tarmac racing Porsche king Jim Richards, the most successful Carrera Cup racer in the world Craig Baird, and director of Porsche’s Historic Racing Department Klaus Bischof. “People are already asking me when the next Rennsport will be,” says Winkler. “The honest answer is ‘I don’t know right now’ but we are certain to have another, even bigger and better judging by the success of our first attempt.”

Clipsal 500 - 2013 28th Feb – 3rd March 2013 The Clipsal 500 event held over 4 days had a lot more to offer than just the V8 Supercars. Our versatile Porsches were certainly a big part of the mix over the weekend and provided plenty of action for the punters. Hope you enjoy the below images from the event capturing some of the action from Porsche Carrera Cup Australia and the Australian GT championship.

Story & Photos Ray Pryor

Goolwa Club Run Sunday 20th January 2013 dawned a beautiful day to drive our wonderful Porsche’s through the hills and down to Hindmarsh Island. One by one as the cars and their occupants arrived at the Victoria Hotel we realized that many other Porsche Club members felt the same way. Eventually we gathered up 26 cars, the most I had seen for a Sunday morning run. It was a delight to see many new members join us. As we set off we noticed that other car and motor bike clubs had the same idea. Our drive took us through Cherry Gardens, Mylor, Echunga, Meadows and on to Strathalbyn where we had a short break. At this point a couple more cars joined us including our President, it seemed every local that passed by knew Norm, a very popular man. Below: More fins than shark bay

The group then proceeded to Hindmarsh Island completing our journey at The Landing Café, pretty much filling up their car park. In all we had 53 Club members and their partners sitting for lunch. The view from the Café over looked the Murray and the entrance to the Marina, magnificent, with the occasional fly by of a Tiger Moth or Warplane as an added bonus. The staff were very accommodating with the large gathering, as the numbers had grown from 25 the previous week to over 50 on the day. It seems everyone enjoyed their meal although the near capacity of the Café did cause some delays, perhaps understandable considering the circumstances. Towards the end of the meal new members were introduced and encouraged to give us a description of their Porsche.

Some members were fortunate enough to have short drive home, living on the island. The rest, had a slow and enjoyable trip back, happy that they could spend some time with their partner and their Porsche, after a good meal, a wine and most of all good company.

Our President in good company

Show and Shine and Prep Day 24th February 2013

Car preparation day It was a beautiful sunny Saturday morning. The club provided a sausage sizzle and Russell Barnes provided some Nippy’s orange juice to wash the sausages and bread down. Lee and Pam Fulton, kindly supplied their driveway as the venue. We were fortunate enough to have the UK’s leading car preparation expert, Professor Bob Weekes show us how to prepare our cars. Now this was both a good and a bad thing. Prof Bob’s 930 Turbo won the top award for the UK so he knows a thing or two about how to prepare a concourse level car. Most of us thought that if you washed and maybe polished the bits you could see standing up; all was good. Prof Bob started there, but this was only 14

PORSCHE

REPORT

about 30% of his preparation for a Shown and Shine, let alone a Concourse event! This was the bad thing……we had a lot more work to do than we thought! After washing the car and detailing the inside it was off with a wheel to clean both the inside and outside, not a speck of dirt was to be seen. Some say, they have seen Prof Bob invest a day per wheel to get it to the standard he likes and is required to be a concourse winner at the highest level. Prof Bob showed us how to clean the wheels, the brakes and all the parts that can be seen through the wheel using Lee’s (and Pam’s) beautiful 993 coupe. Having cleaned the wheel, Prof Bob then cleaned the rest of the parts now exposed, finishing up with painting the brake disc etc.

Lee Fulton, (more on this dark horse later) had already been having private tuition with the Professor re cleaning wheels and various other items to get the jump on the pack. Lee had prepared three of his wheels etc under Prof Bob’s tuition before the day. As I was cooking the sausage sizzle I was able to observe the goings on. I noticed that all this EXTRA work to prepare your car was being closely followed by all present, but especially young Jim Pierson, Russell Barnes, Peter Young and Lee Fulton, more on these guys later! Show and Shine day The Show and Shine day arrived, the weather and the venue were great. Some cars were driven to Middlebrooke Winery via the club run

whilst others were driven directly. It was obvious to previous attendees that the preparation level of members’ cars this year was of a much higher standard. The prep day had obviously paid dividends with the standard of the cars to be judged significantly higher than last year. Not only was the preparation of the cars much higher but also the presentation of the cars on the day. For example, young Jim Pierson & Darren Boswell had of their car wheels sitting on shiny checker plate to get some additional attention in the past winners section.

Boxster/Cayman. 1st Ray Pryor, Boxster Spyder. 2nd Kym Obst Boxster S

The winners on the day were as follows;

Both Darren and Jim Pierson have become multiple winners in both Porsche and other

Show and Shine days. Their cars and Karl Glaab’s beautiful SC looked fabulous with most members being quite happy to not have to compete against the previous winners cars. Boxster/Cayman Prof Bob’s car came in first in this section and very deservedly so. However he disqualified his car as he was the organiser. I disagree with his action here as all the cars were judged by people independent of the organisers. Prof Bob’s Cayman R was superbly turned out on the day and was judged 1st in this section and deserved to win. This would of course have taken me off the winners list. I need to confess, that due to work commitments, (& general laziness) my car was prepared by Prof Bob and it has never looked so good.


911 Water Cooled Both Russell Barnes & Peter Young, who both applied what they learnt at the preparation day to great effect, hotly contested this trophy. The judges went over these two cars twice and still could not separate them and the final decision was made based on the kilometres travelled with Russell’s car having the higher number of kilometres. Both cars were very well prepared and a credit to their owners. 911 Air Cooled Two popular winners in this section with Lee’s 993 looking immaculate and John Balson’s car always popular with the crowd with its stunning enhancements. By the way this car is for sale if you are interested, as John now has purchased a 997 GT3 RS. Best Wheels 2013 – Kym Obst’s Boxster (Thanks again Prof Bob). Best in Show Lee Fulton, 993. Lee had spent many days preparing his black 993 and deserved the Best in Show trophy. His presentation on the day with the Porsche flag with various Porsche items was also new. Well done Lee. As always, events like these do not happen without a lot of work and I would like to thank the organisers on behalf of the club members. Thanks go to Joy O’Connor & Ray Prior for organising the run and the day with Bob and Lorraine Weekes. Thanks also to Professor Bob for running the car preparation day. I think your students did very well!

Mallala Supersprint 4 17th February 2013 It was encouraging to see such a variety of Porsche models mixing it up on the track last February. Whether you were driving a master blaster from the past or one of the latest incarnations out of Germany, you were assured of having a great time.

If you have ever thought about what it would be like to see what your car can do under controlled conditions I would encourage you to get it out of the shed and give it a go. Not everybody is gunning for the crown, and that’s OK. If you just want to see what your car can do without the pressure of competition our club can cater for you, but if you want to give

it your all, we can cover that too. Feel free to give David Wiffen, (0488 756888) a call if you have any concerns or would just like more information and he will put you on the right path to a great day out. Alternatively, there is plenty of information on the Porsche Club web site to get you started. So what are you waiting for?

Mallala Supersprint 5 10th March 2013 Jason Palmer and his 993 RSR

I had been struggling with a thousand domestic reasons not to drive in the next available Supersprint but this time the need for speed took pole position. Just to complicate matters I decided to get a trailer and haul my car to the track, ensuring a more comfortable drive, (no ear muffs) and room to take a chair, fridge and some cool snacks. Given the day was hot,

Marty was hot before he got in the car 20

(some say very hot!), a roomy air conditioned van turned out to be a good choice. Mind you getting the car on the trailer was not a lot of fun. Always something you don’t expect. The ramps were to short, or the car too low. That sickening crunch of metal on metal under my seat as I drove up sent all sorts of images through my mind. I stopped and hopped out, anxiously looking for any tell tale oil leaks. Nothing. No blood on the ground. Nothing swinging from the chassis, just a bit of paint on the edge of the trailer floor. The car sounded and looked normal. I wanted to race so with a “can do” Aussie approach I solved the loading and unloading problem by finding a patch of undulating ground that was around 15cm higher and within reach of the ramps. Next time I will get some planks to extend the length of the ramping. So car off, scrutiny and briefing over and a last minute adjustment of tyre pressures and I was good to go. 24 cars turned up which meant 3

groups of 8. Good for getting through the day quickly and possibly having an extra session but not enough intermediate time to watch the other cars. So if you’re thinking about joining the fun, please do. Given the way the guys organise the car grouping, skill level is not an issue and there is no better way to appreciate these fantastic cars. Where else can you drive them safely flat out and also share the fun! My little 1970 black and orange beast is a handful and that’s why I drive it. You don’t see 914’s around much sa a quick explanation. I think it was the first mid-engine mass production sports car in the world. Big in Europe and America the 914/6 was all Porsche 911 running gear, motor included. Think the early 911 RS ducktail for performance. The 914/6GT was built to win Le Mans, and it did. Fate saw the bean counters and public never really get behind it and kept buying the 911 so it quickly faded into history. But drive an early 911 and then drive this balanced machine and you can

Tim Schulz and friend changes. Remembering to always go to neutral before selecting the next gear up or down. In preparing the car I changed the original shift to a highly engineered selector and bearings setup with rigid guides connecting to the gearbox. A worthwhile investment to remove any slackness which minimises missed or jammed gear changes in these early cars. Still possible but not so likely and bloody frightening when it happens. At the start/finish line we grid up and are released in pairs. If possible I like going second to watch and hang onto the guy in front. For me it is a way of immediately measuring driver performance especially whilst learning the track. The green flag falls and we are away! Lots of engine howl as it redlines before each change and a heavy foot on the brake at the last second before corner entry. “Balance and poise” I say to myself.

only shake your head in frustration. What if they actually developed the 914/6! So it took nearly 30 years for them to see the light and get it right. Now all hail the Boxster and Caymen! Out on the track, wedged into the seat and contained in the quite of the helmet, memories of past track days, supersprints and adrenalin run amuck. Get some heat in the tyres and brake pads, feel the steering and note the gear

I think I’m going to like this 21

Turn 1 can give a thrill if the entry to turn 2 is not lined up on exit, (ABS was not even a thought when they built this car). Brake to softly, nothing. Too hard, lockup and a spin in front of the stands. The worst form of embarrassment. Turn 2 is loooong and about as confusing as a turn can be. Any number of alternative routes but too fast in and you will find yourself exploring the infield. Too slow and you might as well have your lunch whilst waiting to exit. Never a dull moment though. I just love that rumble strip of kerb on the right as you finish the exit. If your teeth stay in and the engine doesn’t drop out your good for another lap. The short straight down to turn 3 is a let-it-rip blast to forget about the stuff up in turn 2 and get back some time. Late brake and wide entry into 3. Look out for the telegraph pole they told me. “When you see it put your foot flat to the floor”. Let’s be clear here, it’s the second pole, NOT the first. Fortunately you are out of sight of the pits and stands on this one. Mind you, I have seen the odd sneaky photographer lurking in wait. Keep in mind the back straight is actually “bent”. A big sweeper with an obvious apex. In a late model Porsche or any other of the hot hardware on these track days, (including my mild mannered antique), there is enough of a bend to generate plenty of G force to carry you and the car into the dust bowl and berm if you don’t resist. The body tends to react with a

clench of the buttocks and a dose of adrenaline. Popping the eyes in time to take stock of the braking markers on the right as turn 4 looks like the road just ran out! This is a neat hairpin corner. A 180 degree turn – almost - and you can count every one of those degrees as you hold that lock on the wheel. I have proved it possible to make it into a 360. I think Saturday must have been booze free because I was thinking. I checked the rear view mirror and kept going before anyone appeared to notice! Talk about a good handling car. Dead level all the while and no flat spot on the tyres. Immediately after turn 4 is another reasonable sized left hander, (turn 5). Once again it is a rip, snort and blast to a)get back the damn time lost on the hairpin, or b) get back even more time after “acing” the hairpin and, “I am on an all time quickest lap here!” Turn 6 is a sort of straightforward right hander that winds into the esses. Call it a mini maze bounded by wide kerbs seemingly all the way. Some smarty painted obvious colourful hatching at odd places on these kerbs. What seemed random at first and second pass made meaning on the third lap. If you aim for each of them you just might come out onto the start/finish straight from the best spot. It is a pity that that spot is in the middle of a hollow because I am sure the unsettling feeling this can cause the driver has convinced a few over the years to can the whole lap and just rest the car in the nearest opposing wall. So here we are. Finish line, waved flag in view, spectators to the left and we can do it all again! LIFE DOESN’T GET BETTER THAN A PORSCHE TRACK DAY

First time first gear fun

MOTORKHANA MALLALA 4th November 2012

Who would have thought only using first gear in a Porsche for a day would be fun? The club event that was held at Mallala on March 24th was my first attempt at Motorkhana and I can say now that it certainly won’t be my last. The MOTORKHANA Name

After a very basic scrutineering from Steve Thiele, we registered and Roger handed out the pattern selection for the day. It was at this point I received a few chuckles from Adam Trimmer when I asked him how to read the patterns! (Definitely a case of trying to over think the patterns on my behalf) The day started with a training run where we were all encouraged by Roger to test out our handbrake turns in earnest. A quick tip on taping up the handbrake button (thanks Adam) to disengage the ratchet system and I was off. Unfortunately the tape wasn’t strong enough and it still engaged, causing me to stall at the first cone halfway through my slide as it didn’t release. Anyway, I fired the old banga up again and completed the pattern with no further issues. Nerves out the way, the competition patterns were next. It was at this point that I recalled a conversation saying that there are two ways to approach a motorkhana pattern – those that take the sensible, methodical approach to negotiating the cones and then those that try and use their right foot and horsepower to achieve the same result. I definitely fall into the latter category and well and truly overcooked many an entry and then found myself relying on sheer grunt to get myself out of the cones and around the pattern


in a respectable time. But oh so much fun. I should point out that that there is no pressure to drop clutches and fry Dunlop’s at every opportunity. I just can’t help myself that’s all. David Wiffen conducted himself in a very restrained manner (I don’t think he broke traction once throughout the day) in his immaculate 964 and had just as much fun as anyone. Roger was the man to beat on the day (as far as Porsches’ go) in his Lapis blue GT3, setting some very quick times during the day that had the rest of us in awe of man and machine. Although he must have been feeling the heat from Norm and his SC, at one point cheekily readjusting Norm’s braking distance in the ‘garage’, while Norm was out doing his best to 25

reel in the more modern machinery. As an owner of an ’84 Carrera it was good to see four of them out for the day, although Adam Trimmer may have to think about changing the colour of his 911. It wasn’t until he was settling himself in the driver’s seat that he realised that he had in fact got into Phil Kellett’s similarly coloured white 911 Carrera. I believe the ensuing comments were “hang on a minute, something’s different”. I must send out a big thanks to Roger Paterson, Norm Goodall, Ray Pryor and Andrew Burgess for their efforts throughout the day, ensuring that the day ran smoothly and that final results were available upon completion of the day.

Overall, the day was a lot of fun. It really is up to you as to how you approach the day; competitive or social, but regardless it is worth the drive out to Mallala for the day to put your respective machines through some slow speed thrills. If you have thought about doing Motorkhana, think no more. The cars’ require no modifications as per super sprints and it really is an enjoyable day out for driver and spectator. See you there!

356’s in the SA Porsche Club When the idea of a special article on 356’s was first suggested for the magazine it was good to see so many members’ eyes light up with interest. Even the most hardened GT3 ‘Sprinters’ when talking about the early 356’s seem to have a tear in their eye, as they are pulling on their $600 helmets at Mallala. Yet one or two of our 356 members seemed a little shy at first when we talked to them and dare I say it, even slow in letting someone else get close to their secret passion. But once Bob had focused that big lens at their pride and joy the camera shutter started to chatter they became much more relaxed as I asked them about ‘the day they bought their 356’. Then,the wraps were off. Interestingly enough, although there were some real differences in age, colour, length of ownership and style, the long period that the car had been in the family was the common theme. The ownership is ‘inter-generational’. Fathers passed them onto their sons, children learned to drive in them and members of the family were taken to the church in them to be married. Some of the youngsters had been brave enough to suggest that the 356 should be ‘passed on’ to them. That is, if the member ended up, God forbid, ‘unable to drive it any more’, as it was so delicately put. A coded message for something else, I suspect!

Alright, I jest about the driving lessons, but the passions that came out were really powerful ones and I hope this comes out in the following reports. Many thanks to the owners for making themselves and their cars available and to Bob for successfully capturing these vehicles essence in film, (or electrons if you must).

Daryl Siggs and his 356

Those members who have driven out of Adelaide down the long Port road in Hind Marsh will have seen the garage called, “The Car Nut” on the left with its bright yellow walls. Easy to pick out and with such an unusual name, who could miss it! Well, inside in the relatively cool shade of the workshop is Daryl Siggs, the proud owner with his Champagne yellow 356 S. The car is neatly parked at the back of the workshop with the usual collection of car batteries, oil cans and other traditional garage materials gathered around it.

to miss such an opportunity being in this perfect location. True, it was clear that the interior of the garage was not over restored, but this just added authenticity to its appeal.

The lovely patina of this 1962 version stands out in the dark of the work shop . Daryl maintains that the unique smell of the interior of his Porsche is enough to keep him ‘calm and mellow’. He does not even need to take the car out on the road. Readers of previous Porsche Reports, as well as those involved with the Climb to the Eagle, would instantly recognise this champagne yellow 356 and Daryl as a regular participant. Those stickers on the windscreen are evidence of his long involvement in that August event. Daryl talked about other rally events too such as the Grand Prix Targa rally in 1995.

It had the perfect feel too, for a car that was built in 1962 – over fifty years ago. The DNA of the later Porsches shone out from the car.

The constant rumble of the traffic outside as we talked was a reminder of the busy location of “The Car Nut garage”. Inside all was calm as Bob took more and more photographs, moving his lights quickly around the workshop, keen not

So the next time you drive along Port Road and pass the bright walls of The Car Nut, think of Daryl and his Champagne Yellow 356. It just might be inside at the back of the workshop, the metal still ticking away in the heat after a run. Somebody ought to bottle that ‘atmosphere’ too,----they could make a fortune selling it at the next club gathering.

In 2003 I started the search for a 356 cabriolet. Having had a coupe since 2001, Cheryl and I longed for the “wind in the hair” experience. A quick search of the local market showed very little (there’s more available now than 10 years ago), with just an “A” cabriolet that needed work at a dealer in Melbourne and another nearing completion in New Zealand. My search then headed to the US. Being a member of the US 356 Registry, I started looking at cars for sale at dealers in California. Having found something I thought was suitable, I asked if anyone could view and review the car for me. I had three people offer to help and all three came back with the same response – KEEP AWAY. So the search continued. A couple of months later, one of the people who viewed that car emailed me an advert for a 1962 T6 B cabriolet that was for sale in their local 356 magazine. Though he didn’t know the car, the ad listed all the work that had been done as well as the people who had worked on it and they were some of the most respected people in the 356 game. The car was advertised as a two owner, 1962 T6 B Cabriolet. It listed all of the history, the work that had been done, a couple of pictures,

current condition etc. At this point I spoke with local Porsche 356 collector Kevin Pedder who, when I read the advert to him, simple said, “buy it”. A lot of emails, phone calls and finally a money transfer and the car was on its way from Camano Island in Washington State to California to share a container with another 356 heading to Melbourne. It arrived with everything: The letter that the original owners wrote to the Porsche factory to order the car and the original invoice in triplicate. There are pictures of the car being picked up from the factory in November 1961 as well as pictures of the original owners with the car on the coast of Spain where they drove it before shipping it back to the US. Oh, and the shipping document for that trip. As well as

a photo album documenting the discovery of the car by the second owner and all of the work they had done, and finally, 15 boxes of spares that included the original tool kit, date stamped rims and the original factory hard top (which had never been on the car). We’ve had the car in Adelaide for nearly 9 years now and in that time have done 3 Classic Adelaide Rallies, the Mt Buller Hill Climb, the Great Ocean Road Escape, driven to Melbourne for the annual 356 Parade 5 times, as well as countless Sunday morning runs and club runs. No, it’s not perfect. I’ve never wanted a “show” car but she still brings a smile to my face every time she starts up and she still shares a garage with our first Porsche, a 1961 T5 B coupe.

Ken Roscow’s Silver 356 SC

It was a perfect April morning to be in Belair at Ken’s house. The sun was shining, warm, not too hot and we were sitting outside, drinking our ‘short blacks‘ looking out over Adelaide. A local flock of Rainbow Lorikeets ignored us, too busy fighting over seeds in the ‘feeder’ alongside us in the trees. The 356 was parked outside, down below us in the driveway, ready for the photo shoot. Ken talked about California where he and his family had lived in 1995 and where this Porsche had come from. It struck a ‘film’ memory for me .The narrow twists and turns driving through the foothills up through Belair to Ken’s house had been exciting. Regular driving up here would test anyone’s driving skills and would seem to be just like being on the West Coast of the US. Ken has owned this car for 17years. He still had his 75 Carrera and a Mustang too, even more examples of California influences. He has done a number of South Australian car runs too, including the ‘Bay to Birdwood’ and it was clear that these vehicles were very much part of the family. Ken must have had some other Porsche skills too as he talked about driving home from

Also he remembered teaching his daughter to drive in the 356,including having to deal with her stalled on a rail way crossing at one stage! Now that would have been an interesting occasion.

Mallala after an event with a broken clutch cable. He had to match car speed, gear changes and traffic lights with the pleasures of Adelaide traffic and still get home in one piece.

Soon we had finished our coffee and we were off down the road to the Belair Park Country Club to take some photographs. The club grounds were a perfect backdrop for the silver 356 with some great locations for photographs. I imagined Steve McQueen nearby with his silver Porsches too and repeating those car chase scenes from the film Bullitt. Driving in San Francisco and then Belair, it must have been car heaven!

Gino Polese 356 S

Although it was a Friday afternoon in late April the unwrapping of Gino’s 356 was like opening a present on Christmas day. Gino unrolled the dust cover and there was an immaculate silver 356. Once it was out in the sun we could see the colour-zinnmetallic in Porsche terms. It is as attractive as a glass of champagne. Gino talked more about the car as we drove round to Bob’s secret photo location (for Bob it was perfectly in ‘period’). The car was built in October 1962, co-incidently the same birth month and year as the owners‘) - imported from California in 2005, a left hand drive painted black with dragster flames. It has clearly come a long way since then with many changes being made inside and out. Gino started the restoration in 2005, and worked continuously on it whenever he had time, till 2007. His professional skill and reputation as an auto painter has been rewarded with the car sporting a fantastic finish. His high standard of work certainly shows out in these photographs. Mark Poole of course did the engine restoration. Jason did the upholstery and Richard and Angela at Priority Porsche did the wiring. While Bob took his photographs, Gino talked about the 356 out on the Classic Adelaide Targa last year and its involvement in a recent family wedding . He let slip he is under the strict instructions from his daughters Channelle and Cassandra to “keep it in the family”! I feel that Gino too wants to keep it, for a long time. It is a prize winning 356 and in a beautiful colour. The car is immaculate and a credit to its owner.

Story: Micheleine Hannaford

Vale Brian Hannaford The various cars that he has owned over the years have been; 1926 Essex Super Six Tourer. Purchased 1952. 1934 De Soto. 1949 Holden 48-215 (FX). Later there was also an FJ in which our sons learnt to drive. 1952 Morris Minor. 1957 Volkswagen. 1959 Ford Zodiac. This was a rare imported car, 5 speed if I remember correctly. We entered it in the Bay to Birdwood Classic event in 1997 I think. Of the MGs the first was a TC in 1956 when he joined the MG Car Club. MG TF (year?) 1972 MG BL (my car actually). 1963 MG Midget, which he raced and also trailered to car events in SA, NSW, and WA. Also in the garage he had a Veteran 1918 Dodge Brothers Tourer in which we participated in many rallies and historic events, as well as in the Bay to Birdwood Vintage and Veteran. The car is now in a private museum in Norfolk, UK.

Sadly in recent months Brian Hannaford passed on. His wife Micheleine has kindly provided us with details of his exploits and contribution to the motoring community. While I did not know him Brian sounds like he was a very giving, active and accomplished man and I am sure he is missed by all who knew him, especially Micheleine. Mrs Hannaford has several Porsche 356 centric items that she would like to offer for sale to anybody interested in giving them a good home. They are, two fleecy lined coats, one small, one XXL. Also a bag with the register badge printed on the outside, two wine glasses with the badge etched in white on them and a diecast Minichamps 356C coupe, 1963-65. If anybody is interested in any of these items please contact myself at, phillip. kellett@bluescopesteel.com and I will put you in contact with Mrs Hannaford. All reasonable offers considered as she is primarily interested in them going to somebody who will appreciate them. Words by Mrs Micheleine Hannaford: I would like to offer some background information on my husband Brian Hannaford and his racing interests. I have also including a list of some of the cars that he and I have owned. In the late 50s, Brian participated in trials at Lanac Park, (Mt. Compass) with the MG Car Club and raced at the Port Wakefield Circuit after he got his competition licence. He also raced at Philip Island in the early 60s. Later Regularity and Hill Climbs became his preferred sports events. 39

Then of course came the Porsche 356B. Again we participated in the Bay to Birdwood but this time in the Classic events. Being among the top 10 finalists in the Concours d’Elegance in 1999 and 2003 was a great thrill for us. The Porsche was restored to original specifications in 1996. I can’t find the date when Brian purchased it, but it was soon after. But with it he also achieved 1st. place Porsche Club of SA Concours 2002 for 356 Closed Coupe section; Thomson Motor Trophy 2003 SCC, most outstanding performance in a Classic Car. Brian’s memberships have been with the MG Car Club; Sporting Car Club, (General, Classic and Veteran sections) having also been Past President, Secretary and Treasurer of the SCC; Porsche Club, and an Associate Member of the Bentley Drivers Club. During the Grand Prix, Brian helped to coordinate the MGs that toured the circuit with the F1 drivers onboard. The SCC organised most of the volunteers for these events. He also participated in the “Climb to the Eagle” before the start of the GPs.

When we built our house the garage was an important part of the planning. We had up to 5 cars and a large car trailer in it and were also able to incorporate a pit in the floor. When Brian retired he was in his element that allowed him to tinker, polish, service and “play cars” on-site and prepare the cars for the many rallies that we participated in, in various parts of the state. But, I think that acquiring the Porsche 356B was the icing on the cake for him. I hope that this gives you an idea of Brian’s interest, indeed passion for his cars and his great interest in the motor sport in which he participated, and the many long-time friendships that were forged as a result.

Dinner at the British Hotel 8th February 2013 Once again, it was great to see so many new members coming to our organized social events, along with the regulars. The evening was very popular. So popular that unfortunately we had to refuse some bookings as the British had limited us to 43 guests. So, sorry to the folks who missed out.

Quite a few enjoyed steaks, something the British is well known for. Atlantic Salmon was also a delight. We had a small mishap with five meals arriving late but Management made it right with a kind gesture of refunding their monies.

After meals had been digested, members relaxed and mingled around, which was great to see. The name badges certainly assisted with remembering names. Quite few comments on how it takes the pressure off the older folk. Ray & Joy would like to thank everyone for the great turnout.
