Nearly a thousand photos, and three dealerships in six hours. Had a great time seeing friendly faces and such a variety of classic Porsches.

A backstory on the green 911T. After three years of restoration by Pfaff Porsche/Pfaff Classic, the car once belonging to Canadian automotive legend is released back into the public eye. The car itself was very much a barnfind, purchased in the final few months before his sudden passing. Kroll was best known for success in both Can-Am and Formula Vee, despite his limited budget, and was inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame in 1994. He passed away suddenly of natural causes late last year at the young age of 81.

If you have a few minutes, I’d definitely recommend giving his bio a quick read.

`Not meaning to detract from our loss of Kroll, but recently we also lost George Maxwell, founder of Mini Grid and father to Scott Maxwell, a name many will know as being a major contributor to not only Multimatic Motorsports but also Mini Grid’s diecast and slot car business. Maxwell also had a massive impact on the Toronto automotive scene, and passed in May at the age of 80.
