Mike Matune checks out the 32nd annual German cars show produced by local area BMW, Mercedes and Porsche clubs.
Marking its 32nd year, the Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance has become a staple on the National Capital Area’s Spring car event schedule. Put on by the local chapters of the BMW, Mercedes and Porsche car clubs, the Concours crowds the show field at Nottoway Park in Vienna, VA with all manner of German automotive finery. The Porsche “Outlaw” row contained some interesting variations on the Porsche theme, including Alan Friedman’s ‘73 911RSR. The paint color shocks the retinas and the “Hippy” paint job adds a lot of visual interest. The ducktail rear spoiler, straps on the rear window, wide wheels & tires and numbering leave little doubt that this is a purpose built vintage racer.
