Parade Along with Porsche Club of America

More than 200 cars competed in the concours.
Why the crowd around this one? It's the first 911 built. The owner: Jerry Seinfeld. Notice that there's no ropes or anything around this treasure, too.
Want to learn how to host an event? Learn from the PCA. They have an army. The rally checkpoints, for example, were well manned.
Barn find. Yep.
Eye candy. Lots and lots of eye candy.
We also spent some time with Braid's rallycross Porsche 911.
The snowfield featured a mix of race and street. Brumos Racing's Peter Gregg drove this 934.5 to the 1977 SCCA Trans-Am championship.
Lots of early cars, too, like the red 1957 356A.
This is what a 1973 Carrera RS looks like naked and awaiting restoration.
New, old, big, or little. If it wore a Porsche crest, it was welcome.
Coming soon to a dealership near you--assuming they're not all sold out just yet: Porsche's new 911 50th Anniversary Edition.
Traverse City, located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, offers a great place to enjoy a Porsche--or really any sports car, for that matter.
Dirty car? Then clean it up. Washing facilities were available on site.
Success in a TSD rally hinges on one big thing: arrive on time. Of course that's easier said than done.
For a while there, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, the event's host hotel, was simply overrun with Porsches.
Little cars--and their drivers--aren't ignored during Parade.
Would you like some ice cream while watching the r/c cars? Sure, thank you very much.

Hello from the Porsche Club of America’s Porsche Parade, their giant annual meet. This year’s event kicked off on Monday, June 24, at the Grand Traverse Resort, just outside of Traverse City, Michigan. The first day’s big event is the concours. This year’s big news is the addition of the new Street classes for daily driver-type cars—only the exterior and interior are judged. The new prep level seems to have boosted attendance. Last year, they had about 80 cars in the entire concours. This year? More than 200.
