Porsches and Country Clubs

We've been very busy with "home" stuff so we haven't had as many adventures as we typically have in the 2 months since I've posted here. But on Feb. 24 we went with the Hurricane Region of the Porsche Club of America ( to visit DC Automotive in Rocky Mount. They are a huge parts warehouse where they salvage parts from old Porsches. I wasn't sure how many people would be there...I was thinking about 10. Turns out we had over 60 people and over 51 Porsches! (Though ours was the only 912e).

After the tour, the club provided lunch at a nearby country club. Since we had so many cars, a police escort was provided. That meant that we could go through stop signs and red lights!

Here we are going through some of the red lights.

We were waving at the people on the streets and they were waving back (or vice versa). It's probably the first time that people had seen some many Porsches in one place. They probably thought some car nut had died and this was the procession for his funeral (since we had our lights on and our flashers going).

Once we got to the Country Club we basically filled up the parking lot.

All in all, we had a great time (though I was only 1 of 5 women there) but I'm still not sure that I'm covertible with being a "Porsche" owner. That just seems to me to be someone a lot more sophisticated!
