Charge your batteries, run some fuel through your carburetors and meet up with your fellow 356 enthusiasts!

For over 25 years rain or shine there has always been someone there to have breakfast and talk Porsche.

The Flo's run is the first Sunday every month--the December 2017 run will be Sunday, 3 December 2017.

The Flo's Run is back on the 356 Club of Southern California Website: www.356club.org/events!

The 356 Club updated its website several years back and the previous update didn't have a way to show recurring events. A brand new website launched a few days ago and the Sunday Run to Flo's is back!

Flo’s Run Weather: Click here for Discovery Center Weather and here for Chino Airport [KCNO] weather.

After Flo's maybe you can ride in a 1926 Travel Air 2000 with Barnstormers Biplane Rides.

Sunrise!

If you’ve wanted to come but you think it’s too early, the November run is for you! We fall back to Standard Time at 2:00 AM on Sunday, 5 November 2017 so you’ll get an extra hour’s sleep.

Sunrise is 6:14 AM.

It sort of rained on us. Not much but enough to make the cars need a little cleaning.

For the first time in ten years Flo's was crowded early and we sat in the front room. It looked like the bikers showed up an hour earlier.
