Great day at the Museum of Transportation in Brookline. All in all, myself and three other fellow 928ers had their cars on the lawn for the 2013 Porschefest in Boston.

Three other 928's were seen in the parking area including a really nice 95 silver GTS.

I had my car judged and came in second in class and lost to the 944 I had beat at the Zone one concours in May. He really stepped it up and his great was really nicely prepped.

My 91 GT also won Peoples Choice! out of a about 100 cars in all. Lots of interest in the 91 GT as most had not seen many 928s or were unfamiliar with them.

Andrew Phinney (sp) from Connecticut came up with his 1978 928 with only 12000 miles and original condition, beautiful! (pixs below)

There was a reproduction 550 there, really nicely done and my friends 911 Turbo with chromed RUF wheels won first for 911 category.

Congrats Bob, well done and way to represent the 928!

Question - would it have made any difference if you had put the factory original D90 wheels back on? I ask since you were competing in full concours. Just wondering, thanks!

Jarrod, no, rules for the concours was not based on originality. Judging conducted on 5 min review of exterior, interior, engine and storage areas, by 4 man judging team. Mostly looking for cleanliness. I drive my 928 in nice weather as well as rain, guess I didn't get all the dirt off :)

I have the D90s, but would not have made a difference. The 944 guy only takes his car to shows, I understand, but it is really nice.

Malcolm, no a
Andrew said he bought it from an original owner who had it in florida. Looks a lot like Kermit thought, but suspension etc was not detailed like Zach had done.
