Wrap Up For Zelienople PTC 2021

PTC Celebrates Holidays
At Zelienople’s Log Cabin

Porsche Touring Crew regular John Vecchi and new member Karin Dalton recently honored PTC by announcing their engagement at PTC’s final event of 2021 at Zelienople’s Log Cabin Inn. The weather was chilly, but Karin was welcomed warmly with a great lunch and a round of congratulations and Holiday conversation.

Afterward, the happy couple took a few minutes to huddle around Johann Collins’ beautiful 2007 911 4S.  Johann is also a new member, and his recently-acquired manual coupe is reportedly the only paint-to-sample pastel yellow 997 in the North America!

Congrats to John and Karin – and Johann!
