Those are all my awards and colleagues from my storied career pally and items from Esso it's like a museum closer up, I take my dad there he has dementia but he remembers stuff when he's in there. Oh and a couple spare Fiat steering wheels, hey want one? You can pretend steer on the couch when the car is stowed.

Ohhhh! Is that a Fiat 124? That was my first ragtop -- best $600 I ever spent!

It's a 124, was my dads, mine now. I can barely drive it and when I do I can't walk afterward which is a new experience. That is also why the other one is PDK, many here were disappointed in that choice but I can drive it.

This makes me smile. Nothing wrong with the PDK, I'll like to eventually upgrade to a newer Boxster with PDK at some point in my life.

I vacuum and blow out the spiders once a month and ya'll know how clean my garage is...but a spider that big, think I would keep it around! Nice!!

Oh and PDK rocks I enjoy it every time I haul a-s-s in my friend's 991.

Ahh, that Esso sign brings back memories....
I worked for Esso Australia for 10 years as a construction engineer and later as a maintenance supervisor on the offshore oil platforms in the Bass Strait between Australia and Tasmania. Good company to work for, but unfortunately I don't have any of their logos in my garage......

Steve, if it really would mean something to you, I have an extra Exxon service shirt patch I could liberate but only one or two ESSO patches.

I loved the Fiat 124 line! I had a '70 Spider and a '72 Coupe. And to be a bit if a pain about spelling, Fiat spelled it "Spider" rather than "Spyder."

Nice pair of cars in your garage, by the way.
