KCRPCA Holiday Party 2022

Twas the night of THE Christmas party for our Kansas City Region PCA. The air was chilly but clear as the Porsche club faithful gathered on December 3rd from far and near. This year the club changed our venue to the Cedar Creek Clubhouse, made available by Stan and Debra Thorne, current Zone 10 representative…

All German Car Show

The best possible weather that anyone could ask for made this year’s All German Car Show one to remember!  The Sunday morning, October 2nd event had a record turnout of cars and spectators.  By the time the show started at 9:00 am, 74 Porsches belonging to KCRPCA members were on display on the open-air top…

GRANDPA & THE KID

This adventure intertwines a road trip, a vintage sports car weekend, my 16-year- old grandson, Porsches of course, and more. The starting point was Christmas Day, 2021. My gift to grandson Bentley was an allexpenses paid road trip to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, the site of the Road America Road course, and the annual Weather Tech…

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…

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…
