Wheeling to Weston

The Weston drive ending at the Riverwood Winery is always a club favorite. And honestly, it is one of mine too. We have done this drive a lot. In fact, I think almost everyone has the drive memorized. That being said, there are always a few surprises. We gathered again this year at the Walmart…

THE MACAN S GOES TO SEBRING

Once again, that itch to migrate south began to worm its way into my mind, shortly after I returned from the previous winter’s journey in March of 2021.  With the winter holidays behind me, and only the chilly, colorless days nearing on the horizon, Sola, my 4-year-old Shibon, and I headed back to Florida this…

KCRPCA Evening at the Kansas City Automotive Museum

Throughout the year, the Kansas City Automotive Museum, located in Olathe, Kansas, features a selected marque for display in addition to their outstanding permanent inventory of historical, classic and modern vehicles.  February was designated as Porsche month and the Kansas City Region of the PCA was happy to donate some cars. If you have not…

St. Joe Fun Run

The old saying, “you don’t know what you don’t know”, comes to mind as I start this reflection of the St. Joseph Fun Run held November 6, 2021. Reflecting on previous years events, Connie and I always wonder when mother nature is going to raise an eyebrow and challenge our weather conditions. Once again, the…

Autocross

In 2018, my friend David purchased an 1984 Porsche 944. This beautiful car was all original, black over black leather, with just over 45,000 miles on the odometer. Within months, he joined the Porsche Club of America. Knowing my affinity for Porsche, he signed me up as his Affiliate Member, insisting that I had to…

ROUTE 66…… JUST THE BEGINNING!

Bucket lists. Many adventurers, mostly men, make them. However, few people ever complete them. On the list there might be; ski the Alps, run with the bulls, visit the Vatican, or drive Route 66. I love to drive. It doesn’t matter if it’s a car, truck or boat. And I don’t care if it’s a…

John Cary – Cayman

It all began when I was a child, as it does for many of us. My introduction into the car world began rather abruptly with a gift of an antique car. During my few years of ownership, I began to cherish and understand form and function worked together. However, as I grew older, I began…

Ray’s 944 Turbo

My first Porsche was purchased in April 1991, but this 30-year story really begins in 1986. Ronald Reagan was President, Dire Straits’ Money for Nothing was a chart topper, and the KC Royals, having won the ’85 World Series, were looking good again as they headed into summer. Little did I know that the seed…

Project 911T

And so it begins! I knew a business owner from some mutual clients and we got to know each other on a gent’s golf trip to South Lake Tahoe. Over wine, he mentioned a ’69 911 coupe he was finishing and a green 1970 911T Targa that was stripped. I just put that in the…

The Painted Porsche

On a morning in mid-November 2019, my wife and I went into the garage, about to head to work. We were met with a tragic sight.  Our 2000 Boxster was covered in deck stain.  A gallon can of stain had fallen off a high shelf and burst open, showering the whole car with stain.  It…
