I went to Luftgekühlt 7 and saw some rad Porsches
Tagged up with some fellow Porsche enthusiasts/DriveTribers/LaLDers to see the best of the air-cooled Porsche world
Luftgekühlt, it means "air-cooled" in German. If you know about Porsche, you know there is a huge following for their air-cooled days. Rightly so, Porsche created incredible machines during those days and are the reason they have the following they do today.
I'll keep things brief, but there was everything from the 356 all the way up to the 993 generation of 911 and everything in between. Sort of a 'greatest hits' of all things Porsche air-cooled, tuners welcome. Couple that with a cool venue and you get a wonderful experience of fantastic views everywhere you look. This year, the event was at the old Coca Cola Bottling plant in Indianapolis, which has been turned into a charming downtown area with a hotel and restaurants. Enjoy the next 50 or so images of Luft 7 at Indianapolis.

It's rare you see a 917 in the original 1969 bodywork.
Yes... people tended to be in the way...
With patience even the popular cars were able to be photographed, like this 718 RSK.
Surprisingly, the only car with Martini stripes...
Venue provided wonderful little scenes like this

Greatest interior I've ever seen. In a Singer of course.
One of the best engine bays I've ever seen - of course in a Singer. Is your engine compartment lined with leather like this one?
Wouldn't be a Porsche event without a ridiculous RUF present.
Oh and ya know, some photography heroes like Larry Chen back there showed up.
Period correct race cars are my jam...
There's always a special-build car for the event. Built up by multiple groups, this 911 Safari was the event car.
Wonderful way to end the event with these two getting loaded up in their trailer!
Cheers everyone! Did you have a favorite of the bunch?
