Air-Cooled Porsches Driving The Big Laurel

It was a Porsche 911 kind of day as nine air-cooled Porsche 911’s and one lone Porsche 356 drove The Big Laurel August Air Brigade drive.

Twelve air-cooled Porsches were scheduled to drive The Big Laurel but only ten made the start due mechanical issues. Most of these air-cooled Porsches are now over 40 years old so mechanical issues are not unknown.

The lone Porsche 914-6 scheduled to drive had transmission bushing problems and a ’78 911SC experienced a mysterious grinding noise on the way to the meet-up.

The 911’s making the drive included a full range of air-cooled Porsche 911’s including a ’72 911T Targa, a 911SC, several G-body 3.2’s, two 964’s, a 993 and the lone 1962 356 Coupe to represent the model that started it all for Porsche.
