Moving to Atlanta area

Hi everyone- I'm moving to Cobb County just north of Atlanta and was wondering if anyone was familiar with the area. Any Porsche clubs, specialist shops, good roads to drive, etc? Thank you!

How far is your facility from the Cabbage Patch Hospital?

Not far since Cleveland GA is a small town. Also of potential interest is Jacky Jones Ford a long time Saleen dealer. I wouldn't be surprised if Jacky Jones knew Jake Raby's grandfather.

Cleveland is definitely small!

The Creekside Deli was very nice. Good food, good folks.

Babyland General Hospital is across the street.. They built a new facility 2 years ago here.
My Mom was Xavier Robert's babysitter.. They were neighbors back then, before the Cabbage Patch craze.
Lived here all my life..

Damn, I was THAT close to your property and I didn't visit?!







Next time Jake... next time... I'd love to tour Flat 6, where all the magic happens.

Yep.. No sign, just a lonely driveway heading up to the top of Raby Mountain.. Most of the locals I have known all my life have no idea what I do or where I do it. Local legend says that the dyno sounds are emitted from low flying aircraft buzzing through the mountains, no one even would guess they come from Porsche engines being worked out and then shipped all over the world!


See that yellow road sign off to the right side of the sign on the main road?? Thats on my property! Thats how close you were :-)

If we were open to visitors we couldn't get any of this done, I have no issue with visitors IF they schedule a date and time to come see us. The last guy that popped in got all pissy because all I did was shake his hand and got back on the dyno, sorry dude- I have things to do, you should have called.

While the facility I have built from scratch has a lot of eye candy, thats not what its all about.. Everything here was built with a purpose.


You can hear my dyno test cell sounds inside Babyland if we are testing, and my cousin probably gave you a tour of the place while you were there. We are 1/4 mile off the main road and across from babyland.

Here is the view from the observation point outside my office


Here you never know what you'll run into.. Like this dude that hangs out in the woods next to my office.. he is the only visitor that is welcome to stop in unannounced, problem is he never comes around when its Bear season!
