Bill Hayman and Carl Wulfestieg organized an exceptionally successful rally this summer in and around the Woodstock area of Vermont. Of course, as is the great strength of GMT’s members, the socializing and the food were outstanding once again. A BBQ was held at Carl’s gorgeous house, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for it, or for the rally drive itself. Cars came from nearby states, and from some not so nearby ones, too. And, the usual balance of new cars, vintage cars, and old cars made for a rich parade of interesting Porsches zipping around the countryside, although nobody committed an act of speeding or any other traffic infraction in the process. It was amazing.
