Great vid.

There's gotta be a lot of cars that are easier to get into and out of than a Porsche, props to someone who obviously loves his Porsche dearly!

Thumb KIwi,

I knew of your circumstances and had often wondered how you coped getting in and out. I hadn't even thought about the need for a hand throttle.

Inspirational stuff worship

Great and inspirational. Where in NZ r u? My in laws lived in Opua and I loved the roads there. Took a wrong turn onto a metal road, since it looked quicker and had a great time in an old Toyota on all the loose stuff!! Thanks for sharing thumbsup

I'm about halfway down the North Island on the East Coast. Where I live I'm surrounded by orchards and wineries... and of course some great open flowing roads... thumbsup
