Sunday, 4 November 2018, 356 Club Sunday Run to Flo’s

#1 Post by Jim Alton » Mon Oct 08, 2018 3:37 pm

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


Meet at the Chino Hills State Park Discovery Center (just 1.2 miles east of the corner of Carbon Canyon Road & Valencia Ave in Brea), just before 6:30 AM on the first Sunday of EVERY MONTH! Departure time is 6:35.6 AM SHARP!! All Porsches or whatever runs is welcome. Destination: the world famous Flo’s Airport Café located at the Chino Airport.

This is the First Sunday in November when patriotic Americans get up at 2:00 AM to set their clocks back one hour so the sun will be up!
  1. Begin civil twilight 5:47 AM
  2. Sunrise 6:13 AM
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 2018 run will be Sunday, 2 December 2018.

The Flo's Run is on the 356 Club of Southern California's website!

We had a really big turnout:

1 356 [pre-A] Speedster
1 356A T1 coupé
1 356A T2 Cabriolet
1 356A T2 coupé
1 356A Speedster
3 356C coupés
2 912 coupés
1 912 Targa
1 Cayman GTS

Maybe it was because of the extra hour's sleep with the return to Pacific Standard Time.

The extra hour's sleep also brought out a lot of bikers. For the first time in years and years the 356 contingent couldn't get one big-enough table.
