1980’s = Big Hair, Big sunglasses, Big mustaches, and big Bad Porsche’s

Just like the 70’s , Porsche dominated Le Mans during the 1980’s.

These were the glory years for the marque. The 962 was unstoppable . I got the chance to watch Al Holbert race the infamous Lowenbrau car at Riverside and Laguna Seca back then. Watching the 962 do battle is forever etched in my memory.

Porsche is returning to Le Mans in 2014. Can they do it once again ? My guess is not right away. Audi has pretty much re-wrote the rules of winning and will be hard to knock off , but if anyone can do it….

  1. Love it ! The Holbert Lowenbrau 962 is always my favorite … Yes, I drank Lowenbrau in the 80’s … The Rothmans’s 956 and 962C are the king ! You can now have a Rothmans Exoto Miniature 956 model …They are accepting pre orders for a perfect replica … It’s Ahh hem … $848.95 … Hey that’s what I paid for an eight ball in the eighties … This will surely last more than 6 hours with friends and won’t make your eyes as sore as your nasal passages !
