With the 2014 PCA Zone 7 Concours Season complete, and the Holiday Season here, it's time to look back at the year's events, and forward to 2015. Seven events brought together Porsche Club enthusiasts from the Zone 7 Clubs of Northern California, to display and show examples of Porsche excellence, make new friends, and greet old friends from other regions. Part of the Concours experience has always included passing on tips and advice about restoration and maintenance, as well as hearing the personal stories and history of the individual cars on display and the story of the "one that got away." No we're not talking about the ex, but that car you didn't buy that's now worth more than your house. For me, it was an Abarth Carrera, with two 356 coupes thrown in for $10,000. If you see the Wayback Machine, send it to my house. Who knew?
Special thanks go out to all who helped make the 2014 Concours Series a success; those who shared their cars for us to enjoy for display and judging, the judging teams, event chairs, and sponsors who provided locations to stage our events as well as trophies. You know who you are; we couldn't have done it without you.
For those planning on showing a car in the 2015 Zone 7 Concours Series, it's not too early to think about preparation, especially if it involves paint and body work, or upholstery projects. They often take more time than our first estimate, so it's good to start early. As always, talk to Redwood's sponsors who help support our club. Next year's events will also include the second Werks Reunion, August 14, 2015 as well as Rennsport Reunion V at Laguna Seca, October.9-11, 2015. Save the date and make your hotel reservations now.
