Now that we are in the dog days of summer, we have activities to plan and places to go. The Pound Ridge Car Show is scheduled for Saturday, September 14th at Pound Ridge Park. This is a fun-filled day of cars of all types but usually has a respectable representation of Porsches from Metro members to grace the lawn of the town park. Registration can be made online at No bagels and coffee for this event, but full BBQ with a roasted pig and cold beverages. Don’t forget to bring a chair.
The Hayfield’s Cars and Coffee in North Salem continues to attract the performance crowd which means the police are patrolling the rural backroads of North Salem. Sunday, August 3rd was a picture perfect day of moderate temperatures and low humidity. Nice to see Metro members socializing in the far corner of the region.
Also, the Teichman’s second Trek (see page 37) will take us from New Rochelle to Brewster, just across the border into Putnam County. We hope to see good north region “representation” for this event. I will be joining.
I am looking for a restoration shop for us to visit for a fall Cars and Coffee. I have a couple in mind and I am checking them out but if you have a suggestion, please let me know.
I wanted to call attention to common speed traps set up in the area. Mamaroneck Avenue between the Village of Mamaroneck and White Plains is a popular spot for Troopers, County Police and even local town police. Apparently the shortcut between Rt. 95 and the Hutchinson River Parkway seems to encourage people to maintain highway speed. Watch yourselves.
My radar has also picked up signals along the Taconic Parkway in Westchester and Putnam. A NYS Trooper was hidden just above Rt. 84 in the rest area and then followed me for about 5 miles while I was only doing 50 mph. Because I know that the Troopers like to hang out there, I decided not to tempt fate and maintained speed in the right lane. (I have been pulled over there three times).
And a shout out to Rennwerke Porsche in Elmsford for sorting out my car (‘86 Carrera, below right) after the engine rebuild, rebuilding the throttle control and adjusting the clutch.
Car feels new. I returned home in a torrential rain storm (is it me, or are we having Florida weather) and used the wipers for the first time this year. Yes, they worked, and man, I love this car!
