PCA Porsche Escape to Dayton, the Birthplace of Aviation

Early morning preping of cars with Quick Detailer.
Maybe the nicest car in the show a 1960 356 cab.
Mac McGregor''s engine bay. Perhaps the cleanest 1984 Porsche 911 in existence.
The tag on this Cayman says it all.
The 356 grill on Dave Raum's outlaw 356.
Mike J.'s very nice 911.
Kathy Hunter, lead organizer and prize giver.
Barbershop songs about Porsches!

This weekend the Porsche Club of America sponsored an escape weekend to Dayton. An important regional event, it began Thursday with scenic drives, an party at a dealer, an Saturday evening dinner at John Dixon's Taj Garag museum, and finally on Sunday morning with a "Show and Shine," held at Dayton's Carillon Park.
Some sixty cars came to the "show and shine." There were Porsches of every decade and model, from some beautiful 365s to Caymans, Boxters, 996s, 964s, 944s, 914s, and of course many 911s. I am an air-cooled traditionalist, but that said, the more recent models are technically elegant and refined well beyond my 1971 911T. If you want to read more about Porsche history, technical design, or any other related topic that comes to mind, let me know.
