Video: Amelia Island: 1977 Porsche 911S Road Trip - Jay Leno's Garage

Buy a $9200 1977 911 S, change the tyres and oil, service the brakes and clutch and then head out for a 2700 mile road trip across the United States from California to Amelia Island in Florida for the world-famous??Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance. Sounds like our sort of adventure!

It’s what writer??Yoav Gilad did for this year’s Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance and Porsche’s??special 50th anniversary celebrations for the 911, and it looks like he had a ball.

His??1977 911 S turned out to be a star, and really demonstrates why??seventy percent of all Porsches ever built are still on the road.??It’s a low mileage car, which is both a good and a bad thing, as cars don’t like to spend time sitting still, but it looks in fantastic nick, and it certainly handled the road trip with aplomb.

In this video from Jay Leno’s Garage, Yoav invites you along for a drive while he chats about the car, its history and the road trip they shared together.
