    Thank you for your efforts in launching a quality website dedicated to the GTP [and, by extension, Group C] era. As the New Man Jeans 956 owner, it was a nice surprise to hear the pleasing note of the early air/water motor of the Group C Porsche.

    I have registered with your site via e-mail and hope to have more to contribute in the future.
