Gathering of 928s in Kansas City on Saturday, December 21st, 2019

Post by FRUNKenstein » Fri Dec 13, 2019 7:39 am

There will be a very informal gathering of 928s on Saturday, December 21st, 2019. We will meet at the Kansas City Region Porsche Club of America (KCRPCA) breakfast at 7:15 am at Pegah's Restaurant, 12122 W 87th St, Lenexa, KS 66215. You do not need to be a PCA member to attend - all are welcome. Look for club members out in the parking lot or in the back room of the restaurant. There is no agenda - just a bunch of guys talking cars.

After breakfast, around 8:30 am, we will take the short drive to the Kansas City Automotive Museum, 15095 W. 116th Street, Olathe, KS 66062. The auto museum will reserve some prime spots for us at their Cars and Coffee function. Admittance to the museum is free.

We have at least six 928s confirmed. The last time we did this was Dec. 2014, and we had ten 928s show up. Would love to beat that record!

Pics from December 2014:

Fair point.

How about: I find it amazing that he could find 10 928s capable of being pushed into a line for pictures.

I have never before seen $1,700 worth of 928's in the same place at the same time. Very cool!

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

Gone hunting with Alec Baldwin and Dick Cheney. Back soon.

My favorite all-time shit-talking post of yours was when Cuda was talking about a fun run for only 914s done by the SDRPCA. You said something about twenty 914s in a line all coasting down Bear Mountain hoping for a clutch-pop start (or something like that).

You know, it's threads like this that make me realize why Rennlist (dammit) kicked us out. :mrgreen:
