One of these days, I'm going to plan a trip up north that includes some of these great events!
Have an awesome time everyone - I'm only a little jealous. :P

Adam,
You need to establish an Unobtanium West. Somewhere in the North/East Bay Area. Now that Jim B. retired you would have a great following!

If anyone is still on the fence about coming, I bet after watching the video we did of last year's open house you won't be able to resist.
Hope to see everyone there!

We are about two weeks out from the open house and I wanted to give everyone a couple of updates on cool things to see while you're here. Our Checkpoint Pinball machine has arrived, so if you want to play Porsche themed Pinball, we have you covered, it's set for free play, so play until your fingers hurt. Walter was here from Austria and couldn't pull himself away, he almost forgot to buy some cars!
Also on display is Adam's aluminum 550 project that he has been collaborating on with Wray Schelin at Pro Shaper http://www.proshaper.com
Dreams come true at Pro Shaper, take Wray's class and make your dreams a reality. Hope to see everyone on the 1st, free lunch from Award Winning Yanni's, and more Porsches than you can imagine. Plus free stuff from Hagerty! Also, if you want to check out a high quality video from last year's open house you can go here:

The weather is looking perfect for the Open House. Our local Porsche dealer, Porsche of Clifton Park is bringing a selection of new cars to check out, as well as PCNA sending giveaway and goodies. Hope to see everyone Saturday!

Going to try, but already have tickets for Limerock Historics on Saturday (race day). This year just going for the day, so not sure if I can find the time to run up there..

Wish it were on Sunday!

Maybe I can show up on the early side on my way to Limerock, but it may be too early..

The weather is now looking perfect, mid 70's and partly cloudy. Also, apparently Porsche wants us to have a fancy party, because they sent us a case of napkins, so everyone bring your fancy pants!

See everyone Saturday!
