 From the Editor ED REINER
I had the opportunity to head down to Boca Raton in mid-July to attend the Porsche Parade. I estimate about 3,500 cars were present and probably 6,000 people. I did not bring a car but elected to fly down to participate as an observer. To say it was hot was an understatement. The temperature was nearly 100 degrees every day, but it was nonetheless “Porsche overload”. It was a week of cars, parts, parties, accessories and people in Hawaiian shirts. Fortunately, the A/C was on full blast in the hotel, and the venue was sprawling so that we all had room to move. I came back with enough swag to last the season. We even had a couple of Metro members in their booths (Brad and James from PCARMARKET and Stephen Landau from Block Prints). I must admit Na- tional and Gold Coast pulled out all the stops to make sure that we had a great time. I noticed license plates from most of the eastern half of North America including a number of Canadian tags. People could not be friendlier
and the environment could not have been “Porsche-ier”. Watching Porsches drive around Boca Raton for the week was pretty cool as well.
Metro’s August agenda has a full calendar of events, including Autocross, DE and another Trek from the Teichman’s. We also continue to plan for more events this fall (yes, it is almost fall) but hopefully a driv- ing season with one or two more Cars and Coffee and more driving events. I am looking for any excuse to drive and hope that more members feel the same way.
This issue includes highlights from the Vintage Rally to the north folk of Long Island, where we had 52 cars manage the trip and record the sights for the rally. And yes, I won an award for a top score despite not being able to correctly count tractors. The vineyard, Osprey’s Dominion, was a very good host to Metro and it was a very enjoyable ride there and back. Pictures are included in this issue.
