Rolex 24 hours of Daytona

File under 'Local Boys Done Good', Jacksonville's Brumos Porsche is featuring both the first place #58 and the third place #59 cars in their showroom here in town. The cars will remain here for about a week or so before the winning car heads back down to Daytona to be displayed for a bit, then it will join #59 in Charlotte where prep begins for Virginia. I hit the dealership on the lunch break and snapped a few pictures that I thought you guys would get a kick out of. Being a total gadget freak myself, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see the machines in person. You always get to see these beasts in their showroom state when you see them on display, but this time I was excited to discover that Brumos had decided to leave them in ' battle dress'.

Pics in the next two posts...

The third place finisher...#59

Again, in it's post-race battered state, pushed onto the showroom floor, straight off the transport.

One more...

And then there's this little thing?! As I understand it...these were popular back in the day, something about air-cooled engines hanging out the back? I guess this was some long forgotten Porsche model from way back when. Brumos had it displayed as if it was some groundbreaking design and great engineering achievement...

It was a good lunch...
