North Region Update Ed Reiner
 Many of you have received a notice that
the annual Metro holiday party is now in Westchester!!! It will be held in New Rochelle. Please SAVE THE DATE
2019 Metro NY Holiday Party
Saturday December 7, VIP Country Club
New Rochelle, NY. Let’s have a good north country turnout, and who can resist the water view!
Many Metro members ran up to Lime Rock
to the Historics weekend over Labor day.
The Sunday event was the annual concours and car show on the track and there was a nice group of “Metro-ites” who participated. With terrific weather, the turnout of northeast enthusiasts was very strong, with some unique cars including quite a bit of German, British and Italian autos along the track. Following a few laps around the track on foot and a few pictures from the observation tower (see the photo below, right), it was on to the Big W BBQ restaurant in Pawling, where we found the ribs that Fred Flintstone ordered (brontosaurus ribs?) that tipped over the Flintstone mobile. I think we should consider this an annual event.
We have some cool events in Westchester in the works. A tech session at Pepe Porsche
is in planning stages, looking at all of the generations of Porsches. We will send out invitations once the event date is firmed up. And we are looking at a couple of cars and coffee events before the end of the season because one cannot have enought bagels and coffee.
September 14th was the Pound Ridge Car Show, with over 350 cars on display, from
Shelbys to Camaros. Metro member Lenny Veneziano’s 1964 21 window VW Bus won “Best in Show”. Due to the the fact that
we were parked side by side, I also won a trophy for Nicest Porsche (Parked next to a
21 Window VW Bus). The VW got the most attention, not surprising since it came with a matching 5 piece luggage set from Samsonite.
Please keep an eye on the calendar, we are not done driving and terrorizing indecisive squirrels.
