Park Place Porsche: 70

Park Place Porsche: 70 years of Sportscar Together photos by By Landon Stogner Bill Middleton, David Tierney & Zane Moore They say you’re never alone when driving a Porsche, even if you’re the only one in the car, because when you’re in a Porsche you’re part of something bigger -- you’re part of all of us. June 8, 1948 was a special day in Porsche history. That’s the day the 356 Roadster received its street certification, which was the starting line to a whole legacy of sports cars that has now spanned 70 years. To honor that great achievement, Porsche hosted parties around the world, known as Sportscar Together Day. Right here in our very own backyard, we had several events around the Metroplex to celebrate such a great accolade, one of which was held at Park Place Porsche in Dallas. Our club’s great partnership with the dealership allowed us to team up to host a Dallas area Sportscar Together Day. Our great club members and assembled a great collection of cars to represent the 70 years of Porsche, which included the 356s of the 1950s and 1960s, as well as the 911s from the late 1960s through today’s 2018 model. I was so honored to be asked to represent the 2010 year model with my 997 Cabriolet. It was such a great sight to see how the cars have changed through the decades. My very own PCA Junior, Brady, noticed small differences in the side view mirrors between the 60s and 70s. I told him to really soak it in 10 July

ecause it’s not every day you get to see a display like this first hand. If the great display of cars wasn’t enough, Park Place provided festivities such as music from a live band, great eats that included bratwurst from Degenhardt’s Brat Haus, and nitrogen-frozen ice cream to stay cool. To help keep us all refreshed and comfortable throughout the day there were different vendors providing summertime adult beverages from Monkey Follow the link to upload photos of your 70th Celebration. Shoulder Whiskey, Unlawful Brewery, and Reyka Vodka, as we sat on outdoor patio-style sectional sofas. This event was so much fun for Porsche fans of all ages. This was a great example how a sports car can bring us together, and another way we are Driving Friendships. Opposite page: Patrick Huston, Liz Shafton, Bill Kruder and Steve Krysil PCNA.
