February 17, 2024 : Winter Meeting, Treffens, and Parade
This past weekend I participated in the annual Porsche Club Winter Meeting in Los Angeles, California. The winter meeting is a day and a half that includes the PCA Executive Council (EC), Zone Reps, and National Chairs. It was great to get with my fellow Zone Reps and the National Chairs to discuss common issues and ideas. The visit culminated in a visit to Singer Vehicle Design (www.SingerVehicleDesign.com). Their tag line: The Porsche 911 Restored – Reimagined – Reborn, does not adequately prepare one for what is being done to the 964 911.

November 13, 2023 : Riesentöter Region’s Phil-a-Trunk Food Drive
A great day at the Riesentöter Region lead Phil-a-Trunk food drive in South Philadelphia! The scope was eye watering! I’d guess 150 Porsches met at the King of Prussia Mall then drove via caravan to the Wells Fargo Center in downtown. Once there, dozens of other car clubs and thousands of cars at the Cars & Coffee were also lined up to unload food from their trunks. The entire area car community came together to support their community with Riesentöter Region in the lead. Great to be a part of!
The event made the local news: Exotics line up for the Phil-A-Trunk in South Philly
