  • 6/2/18 Richmond Porsche Meet

    Well Guys,
    Under very threating weather skies it came off.
    Not sure of the final count of cars, but it was around 70 or so.
    We had 4 356s show.
    We lost two others due to the severe storms that rolled thru Friday and Saturday evening.
    My'Porsche' ride to the awards banquet Saturday evening was a 2005 Buick Lesabre.

    The event was held at Virginia Crossings Convention Center that is located North of Richmond City.

    The gold weather vane was a golf bet win of the former CEO getting it from the CEO of Anheiser Busch.
    Not to miss a photo op I got the Roadster in front of the main building.

    We had 4 356s show up.
    A very nice 1957 Speedster that took 1st in Class and Peoples Choice.
    My 1961 Roadster, a 1962 Cab and a 1964 Coupe to be a Outlaw.

    As I said the Speedster is very nice.
    It was restored in York, PA.

    There were many other 'newer' Porsche on the grass also.

    Virginia Crossings is located on near the Civil War Battle Site where JEB Stuart was killed-hence the cannon.

    The local Porsche dealer selected one winner's name from each class to be put in the pot to win a trip to the Porsche Experience Driving School.
    George Michaels from the 1st Settlers PCA Region and former F-14 TOMCAT guy who brings his nicely prepared 928 to the show won.
    He was stunned!
    A fun event in spite of the clouds and rain.

        Thanks guys.
        I used up my 8 spaces for pics so I didn't have the chance to put in the collie owned by the couple with the white 911 Cab.
