On a beautiful - if slightly hot - day in August, the "SoBo" (South of Boston) arm of Northeast Region swarmed the Newport Car Museum in Portsmouth, RI. With over 100 attendees and over 70 cars, the museum let us know that we were the largest club group they have had the pleasure of hosting to date! Thanks to all who turned out to check it out and brought their phenomenal cars. This venue has a huge parking lot, huge interior areas for socialization, a great collection of cars, simulators so you can have some fun at the wheel, and some really great staff. Thank you, Newport Car Museum, for doing such a wonderful job hosting us!
We saw everything from a 356 Speedster to new Macans and Panameras – with 911 "outlaws", 935's, 930's, 911's, 964's, 993's, 996's, 997's, 991's, Boxsters, Caymans, and just about everything in between! This was the place to be to see such a huge array of Porsche hardware.
But the real attraction is always the people. It was a delight to be able to walk up to anyone and just start talking about their cars, the cars in front of them, or anything else.
Special thanks to Roger Slocum and his wife, Rosemary, for being the ones to pull all this together!
We also have the West-of-Boston Cars and Coffee this coming weekend on 8/19 in Northboro. And another one on the Cape the same day. The summer BBQ at Marcus and Dani's house is next Sunday 8/20 as well. Mark your calendars!
