Now that sound is excellent. I also think it looks wonderful.

Last friday I took part in the 'Targa Passagio' (or 'tunnel challenge')...

In this event Porsches drive through tunnels in and around some cities in the Netherlands and Belgium (Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Brussels). Last friday it took us through the tunnels in and around Amsterdam and we had a blast!

Your car looks great going through that tunnel. I am jealous of all the neat roads you have there! Car looks fabulous. [8D]

The only luggage space I have, is the space behind the front seats.

During my drive to the 1000Miglia I stowed 2 travel bags, a folding chair, a camera bag and some other things there.

When I had to brake pretty hard, I got some of my luggage in my neck and I realized it wasn't very smart (of me) to pack loose luggage this way behind the seats...

As you'll probably know Porsche knew that 'problem' too and you could buy leather luggage straps as an accessory.

Because I like to make things myself, I went to the local harness and saddle maker and I bought cognac coloured leather leads from harness leather, some SS buckles, et cetera and I started punching holes in them, fixing the buckles to them and within 2 hours I had a pair of great lookin' luggage straps that were the correct length for my car!

Furthermore I bougt some nice SS footman loops at the local boat shop and I put the luggage straps in:

Now I can fix the luggage in a safe way and I think they look great...
