As 11:30 drew closer we were relieved to see many of the spectator cars exiting the lot just as the Porsches started rolling in. We did our best to direct incoming traffic to the appropriate parking area; Volvos and Saabs up above, Porsches in front in the lower lot, and the general public on the side and in the back. I may have confused some people with my pointing and waving, trying to direct folks to the appointed parking areas, but for the most part, I think they got the message. The Saab and Volvo drivers who missed the upper lot and ended up in ���Porsche-land��� were very understanding and happy to move when I explained the parking situation. I did see some Porsche drivers with bewildered looks on their faces as they were circling the upper parking lot (our customary parking area for these events) in a sea of Swedish cars. They appeared relieved when they realized their friends and familiar crested cars were all parked down below. I also noticed a fair amount of co-mingling within the two groups. After all, weren���t we all here for the same reason, to enjoy a lovely winter day, admire some beautiful cars, and visit with some nice people! I hope that those of you who made it out to the social bull session at the XXX Root Beer Drive-In enjoyed the day. We hope to see you at the next event. Club Event April 2011 15
