The Steering Wheel
President’s Message from IAN TAGGART, CPA-PCA President
Greetings. It is hard to believe, April is upon us and that means it is Swap Meet and Sweet Meet Autocross time. The Tech Session at Sun Motorcars, always a top shelf event, was well attended, as evident by all the positive feedback and from the results of the Autocross held the next day at Hershey. Thanks to Steve Baun of Sun Motors, and our Autocross Chair Alan Pozner, much appreciation. For those who participated in the March 30, 2013 bus trip the Javits Center for the New York Auto Show, thansk go to Al Peinhart for once again organizing another successful trip.
Speaking of seeing beautiful cars, especially Porsches, the AACA Museum, is still hosting the Porsche Style and Design presentation until the last weekend in April. By now the April 8th, 2013 Club Event at the museum will have been concluded and the event appears to have been a success as approximately 65 people came to the event and enjoyed the cars, food, snacks, and conversations concerning the vehicles and associated passions.
Speaking of events, the upcoming Porsche Only Swap Meet is scheduled for Saturday, April 20, 2013 so come out, support the club as a volunteer, look for parts for your garage king or queen, and show off your ride in the concours, and gear up with some Porsche swag from the numerous vendors and dealers that know there is no substitute.
For those not into autocrossing, but who want to experience the track and be a better driver, check out Mr. Steve Baun and the Driver Education events. You can learn what you and your car are capable of, as well as spend time with others who are passionate about the driving experience know as Porsche.
Finally, for those who like to socialize and share stories about their P-Cars, there is always Cars and Coffee and the monthly club meeting held that the Lancaster Leiderkranz. Remember the club meeting is the first Tuesday of the month, social hour/dinner from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM with the meeting starting at 7:00 PM. The food is terrific and the conversations about club activities and events are spirited but definitely worth the time. First-time attendees develop an appreciation for the club and are glad they attended.
Please check out the rest of the Sprecher and the CPA website for information that I know I have missed or glossed over, remember, warm tires are happy tires, drive no faster than the laws of downforce and tire adhesion permit.
Happy Porsche Motoring,
