Unobtanium Open House 2017 Sept 2nd

#1 Post by Adam Wright » Wed Jul 26, 2017 11:02 pm

The time has come once again for all Porsches to gather in Ravena, NY and eat great free food from the World Famous Yanni's food truck. Come, bring your Porsche, bring your friends, and bring your smiles. Hope to see everyone there!

Wouldn't miss it. It's a great time and Adam always has great weather for the drive out from Boston, I don't know how he does it but I'm told he has connections....
See you there! KTF

I'm hoping that one day I'll actually be in the US around this time to attend one of your Open House days, Adam.
Hope everyone has a great time!

In addition to all the usual cool stuff to see at Unobtanium this year you can also check out my personal projects, the 904 and the 550 Spyder in Aluminum.

Hope to see everyone there!

If all is OK with my car, I plan to drive up there from Limerock. Looks like it is about 1.5 hrs away. I am looking forward to it!

If anyone is still on the fence about coming you should check out the weather report, it gets no nicer than this! With winter coming this might be the last good drive of the season, and when you leave our place you can head over to Lime Rock and watch the Historics, make a weekend out of it!

I hope to be there but don't have a 356 so I'll be listening in and roaming around try to learn what's original or overhearing general 356 buzz. See who has the proper pleats on their seats! I'll be checking those panel fits and gaps. :)

There will be plenty of buzz! Here are some shots from the set-up, the juxtaposition of the old vs the new will be a good talking point for people when they arrive. Not often you get to so Porsches so old next to ones that are brand spanking new, courtesy of Porsche of Clifton Park.

Hope to see everyone there, the weather is supposed to be perfect, low 70s and sunny.

The Open House went great today, we had so many cars the cops shut down the street for us! The weather was perfect and the food truck ran out of food. A better day could not have been had.
Can't wait for next year!

Adam - I was there, sorry I didn't introduce myself but you were always surrounded by a band of enthusiasts. There were plenty of 356 experts around to answer my questions and teach me. It was a great time for me. steve
