October Cars and Coffee
As we’ve all witnessed, 2020 has been a sparse year for Cars & Coffee events in the area, yet the Hudson Champlain PCA Region managed to squeak one in for the Fall season at the Saratoga Auto Museum in the Spa State Park.
What turned out to be a very foggy and chilly start for an early October Sunday morning culminated in a wonderful gathering of 48 Porsches, a few British marques and all of their diehard and cooped up owners eager to gather outside together to see old friends and make some new ones. We were fortunate to have all varieties of Porsches ranging from 1950’s era Speedster and Convertible D models through the latest all-electric 2020 Taycan 4S.
Hot coffee, fresh bagels and pastries helped to keep everyone warm while strolling among the cars, chatting (responsibly) in small groups and enjoying the Dyson racing car exhibit inside the museum which included a Porsche 962. Also, we raised another $330 in addition to the $185 raised at the Sept 20th picnic for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY through donations for fashionable Porsche-themed face masks (if you gotta wear one, at least it should be a Porsche one). Thanks to all who have donated!
All in all, the day was an exceptional showing of the club’s members, friends and family and the general public strolling through the park.
Special thanks to Fran McLeod for her excellent organization and execution of the event, Megan Hennessey and the volunteer staff of the Saratoga Auto Museum for hosting us, and Christian Trujillo from Porsche of Clifton Park for financial support of the event and the Taycan display vehicle.
