    Well, I am sitting in my hotel room typing on the laptop, they have a wireless internet access here. (free) It's been a long day driving through the hill country taking hundreds of photos... ;)
    The event is called "The Boxstoberfest". It's where Porsche Boxsters from all over Texas and some from out-of-state meet up for a drive and fun.
    There were over 55 Boxsters, no two were exactly alike. :lol:

    One Boxster owner who lives in Georgia could not come because of the lack-of-gas between there and here. So he decided to fly his kit airplane down instead. I met him at a dinner party the night before the boxsters showed up at the hangar hotel. He offered to fly me past the line of Boxsters so we could get some aerial photos of the Boxsters. (of course I accepted) :D

    After all the photos and getting everything sorted out we all got in our cars, split the group in half, and hit the road; one group going faster than the others.

    Here are some of the photos from the day.

    The "Hangar Hotel" was where the Porsche Club of America held "Boxstoberfest" in Fredericksburg, Texas.

    There is a Diner that is on the runway, pilots eat there while they re-fuel.

    This is the plane the I got to ride in to take photos of the cars lined up next to the runway.

    One last pass, anymore and he would get in trouble with the FAA. :lol:

    On the drive there were over 30 Boxsters lined up as we drove through the hill country.

    I hope you enjoyed these!
    When I get back to my house I'll post more for y'all! :)

    These photos have AIRIC-quality! WOW! They are sooooooooooooo cool!
    You had the crispest of weather for just the crispest of photos, and no matter where you were, on the ground or up in the air, you only got crystal clear photos of all the views you had. What an experience.

    I'm with Mansi here: my favourite of the whole lot is the lone Porsche parked in front of the diner. That one is a killer shot!

    Very interesting pics and great thread. The aircraft you flew in looks like a Van's RV-6. Never seen a polished silver one before. JM will find the P-40 Warhawk of interest on the flightline. The B/W is awesome, what a retro looking pic. Great work, hope to see more soon.
