Sunday, 6 January 2019, 356 Club Sunday Run to Flo’s

#1 Post by Jim Alton » Sun Dec 02, 2018 8:13 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.

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 second 2019 run will be Sunday, 3 February 2019.

Ok, it won’t be hugely shiny, but there will be some light. From The US Naval Observatory:
• 6:29 AM Begin civil twilight
• 6:57 AM Sunrise
And, we won’t be driving straight into the sun.

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

The rain cleared just in time but the wet roads hurt attendance. We totaled:
  • One 356A Cabriolet
  • One 912 Targa
  • One 912 coupe substitute [GMC pickup]
  • One 356 [pre-A] substitute [Cayman]
Another 912 substitute [5 series BMW] waited for us at the world-famous Flo's Airport Café.

Two first-timers showed up late:
  • 993 Cabriolet
  • 6 cylinder 912
