““you’d never believe there could be so many shades of grey…””
As a ‘thank you’ for supporting the magazine, we thought we’d like to give you a little gift – well, not so little, actually, as it’s an A1-sized double-sided poster. On the one side is a specially commissioned race poster from Triple Espresso celebrating Bob Wollek’s victory in the 1976 Nürburgring 200, while on the other is a stunning evening photoshoot by our very own Stephan Szantai of Scott Bosés’ beautiful 1959 Convertible D. We hope you can find a spot on your wall to enjoy them. A couple of issues ago, I commented on how white has suddenly become the ‘in’ colour in the classic Porsche world. Well, I should have kept my mouth shut, for in this issue we have not one but two cars in Slate Grey, while our regular correspondent Delwyn Mallett spent much of his time at Techno Classica Essen pondering over which shade of grey he should paint his 356 ‘Streamliner’, which is currently undergoing restoration. You’d never believe there could be so many shades of grey – one thing’s for certain: there are definitely more than 50 despite what anyone might tell you… Techno Classica was as busy as you’d expect, and marks the real start of our season here in Europe. Classic Porsches were as prevalent as ever at the show, suggesting that the market shows no signs of shrinking. Long may that be so.
