Anyone heading to Hershey?

one week from the world's largest porsche swap meet and car show! i was in a wedding last year and missed it for the first time in over a decade but i'll be there this year. unfortunately i'll be in the truck as i have parts to sell, and buy, and the other half is coming this year.



anyone else going? if you have never been you need to. really. it is am awesome thing to experience.



Porsche-Only Swap Meet: Central PA Region PCA

He once taught a german shepherd how to bark in Spanish.
When he drives a car off the lot it's price increases.
He once won the Tour-de-France but was disqualified for using a unicycle.

I don't always drive a sports car, but when I do it's a Porsche. Stay fast my friends.

How much is left stock or is it mostly a resto-mod? I always liked the 914 as a kid. Of course that was before the 924. Which I didn't care for until it went to the 944.

If it weren't going to be a total wrencher, I wouldn't mind having an original stock one. But I'm too old anymore for spending all that time tinkering.

Nice car!

May the number of surfaces exceed the number of dives by at least one

Used to go to Hershey a lot when I lived in Pennsylvania and Baltimore. There's also a big Corvette show every year relatively close, in Carlisle. Interestingly, I worked at the Pocono Hershey Resort during college. Regarding your 914, it looks identical to the one my father had when I was a little boy. If it's from Pennsylvania originally, would be funny if it was Dad's!...So will I be there? Since relocating to Maine over 18 years ago, I don't get down to Hershey much anymore! Have a great time!...

I'm away or I would go. It should be a great time!

Hershey is a great place to visit: I used to run the Hershey Hillclimb all the time.....I might even make it this year.

I'll be stopping in Hershey during my road trip next month; I have a good friend who lives there who I haven't seen in nearly 20 years. Doesn't do any good for the swap meet (MAN I'd like to check that out!), but I'll have to check the local event calendar to see if anything's going on the weekend I'm through ...

Blackened '18 NBM 718 Cayman: "Alli". Audio mods TBD

If you find yourself with some free time, drive 90 minutes south-east and visit the Simeone Museum. It'll knock your socks off.
