Spring has sprung and car events are popping up all over! If you are a Porschephile, the LA Toy & Literature show should be on your “must attend list” LALitAndToyShow.com. Held annually on the first weekend in March, this meet brings out the largest and best variety of Porsche automobilia, books, brochures and specialty parts that are available in the US. Early on Saturday morning, thousands of eager shoppers gather to peruse over 300 tables of Porsche treasures filling two ballrooms at the LAX Hilton hotel.

often includes a stay in Savannah, GA. Wandering down the streets & window shopping, I spotted these great Jaguar bonnets hanging on the wall at 24E Design Co., on E. Broughton St. It turns out the hood is part of the “Jaguar Bonnet Artwork Collection” by the automotive designer & artist, Cesar Pieri. designpieri.wordpress.com
Above: The Sebring 12 Hours race is an exciting event to be sure but people watching is an additional perk. John Hartman, a race fan for more than 50 years has an impressive collection of original race tickets and buttons, dating to the 1960s, which he wears proudly on his hat. John is a walking bit of motor racing history!
