The original "Driver's Manual" of the missing Porsche 550A RS Spyder #0140 is in the care of Mr. Peter Dorfer, also known as 'Mr Porsche Classic' South Africa. It was a privilege to page through this distinctively characterful document and be transported back in time. The deep oil stains, handwritten notes and sketches scribbled all over the document just adds to the feeling of eminence. Some of these notes on cam-timings and other engine settings might have been made by Mr Al Gibson or Mr Alois Klesse working late nights to get the engine ready for racing. Hopefully one day the Manual might be reunited with the Spyder.
A big thank you to Mr Dorfer who hosted me at Carrera motors. He sure is one of the most knowledgeable persons on Classic Porsches with a passion for these amazing motorcars.
