Every year, we look forward to the 356 Registry's Holiday events. The East Cost Holiday event this year was held in Ocean City, New Jersey. While the weather was a little spotty with rain, there was little loss in enthusiasm, thanks to an excellent organizational crew.
The concours on the boardwalk was epic with an enormous line of 356s on the iconic wooden structure.
We brought our own special pet project, the 356C that's in some of our recent advertisements.
The trip to Cape May was spectacular.
The Simeone Museum was a treat—this whiteboard of all of their ongoing projects captured our imagination. It's funny how a mere list of work to be done can get you thinking!
The Boardwalk before cars were allowed on.
Staging the concours line at the OCNJ Airport before they rolled onto the Boardwalk.
The shuttle for Concours Judges had approximately 4 Peoplepowers. We're not sure what that would dyno at.

This past weekend, we were on Long Island for Driven To America 2 which showcased the history of the air-cooled Porsche along with the man that was responsible for introducing the Marque to America, Max Hoffman.
The event was held in Old Westbury, New York at the de Seversky estate and brought out a great selection of Porsches ranging from America Roadsters to Factory race cars and late models. There were even several 300SL Mercedes present—they are always a treat to look at.
There was a live forum held with Larry Webster as the moderator. Speakers included Ray Shaffer from Porsche Classic, Cam Ingram from Road Scholars and our friend, Prescott Kelly. It was informative and entertaining!
We spent this past weekend at Laguna Seca at Porsche's Rennsport Reunion. We brought along a lot of our new products, including our 356 / 912 Sport Exhaust to show off. We had so much booth traffic we really didn't get out to watch too many races—but we did enjoy seeing the Tractor races as well as the debut of the new 991-based 935. Speaking of debuts—we had a lot of interest in our upcoming (and exclusive) line of properly anodized Maxilite Fuchs-replacement wheels.
Since we didn't venture out much, we're linking to Porsche's newsroom and a host of other websites for your surfing pleasure:
Racer Magazine had Porsche driver Patrick Long do a video walk-around of some of the awesome sights and sounds from Rennsport. You can see that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALedWU9WBZI&feature=share
Our 31st Annual All-Porsche Car Show and Swap Meet was held on June 1-2nd. We had a great turnout this year, including a lot of "new" Porsches we haven't seen in prior years.
We photograph a lot of cars and shiny parts here--and if there's one "Selfie" that irks us, it's when you're trying to showcase something and DO NOT want the photographer's reflection to be so obvious in the chrome. So let's turn that negative into a positive and show your goofy side.
