    Maybe some of you are also classic Porsche fans/collectors and familiar with the vintage Porsche world.
    Well, Porsche other than 1:1 cars, offers the greatest chance for automobilia hunters to build great collections of so many vintage original items produced by the factory from the early 50's.
    Better than words, to understand the Porsche automobilia phenomenon I suggest to visit the Straehle Porsche swap meet in Schorndorf near Stuttgart or the Lit and Toy show swap in L.A.
    I've been collecting Porsche stuff from many years, and more recently I began collecting vintage BMW automobilia.
    Original vintage stuff like brochures, manuals, photos, posters, models, badges and so on are a great source to increase knowledge and culture and sometimes real pieces of art.
    So I'll begin to post some items from my collection, I hope to share this passion and that someone else will get this "lovely illness" too.:smile:

    I have a couple things you don't see every day.

    A slide-rule tune up calculator for 2002 and 3.0cs/Bav:

    And a service rate manual for the coupes similar in style to the blue maintenance books but much smaller (about 7" across):

    Was their a specific key fob for the coupes, or a standard early 70's key fob?
