After Werks Reunion on Friday, Robert and I dropped to Laguna Seca and got lunch at Cruisin’ Cafe. Here are my highlights from Friday & Saturday. On Saturday after our volunteering with data entry as the Audience Survey Team and talking with the Assistant Director, Gordon and Karen were about to leave and we met them after several feet from the SCRAMP office.

Porsche Club of America-Werks Reunion

In years past, PCA co-hosted Legends of the Autobahn at the Rancho Canada Golf Club. All will be treated to a stunning display of more than 500 Porsches, access vendors, and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow car enthusiasts. The 2014 show will feature the latest Porsches, special vehicle presentations, celebrity guests, and a surprise or two.
