Draft – Mid June – 2021

ARPCA Members,

Greeting and Salutations! So fellow movie fans I have to ask, am I last person to realize that The Avengers Headquarters is actually One Porsche Drive in Atlanta?  Tony Stark may drive Acuras and Audis but he chose Porsche’s North American HQ as the home of the Avengers.   But it turns out that 5 Marvel movies (more info here) have used the location. It is a really cool looking building after all.  Maybe stop by in real life?  Use the test track?  Join a team of superheroes, one can dream I suppose.

On a less cinematic note June for the ARPCA has a number of great activities.  We are now a little over a month from the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (more info here.) It might be time to bust out the wax and detailing tools if you plan to show off your shining example of fine German engineering in Schenley Park.

Hope to see you out there!

Plan to attend the 39th annual Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix with ARPCA.  Join hundreds of your fellow club members, guests from other regions, and friends as we gather on “Porsche Field” in Schenley Park to enjoy our cars, vintage races and the camaraderie that defines PVGP weekend.  Registration opens on April 10th but now would be an excellent time to mark this event on your calendar. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is our club’s largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds donated through the PVGP charity to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School.

Allegheny Region 60th Anniversary – Founding Documents

In celebration of our Region’s 60th Anniversary, we are posting a number of items including recognition from the Porsche Club of America (PCA National) and some of the Club’s earliest correspondence and documents, showing the names of our original founders and the activities that they conducted.

Porsche Touring Crew – June 2021 Event (Registration Currently Closed)

PTC Adopts “Green Agenda;”

A well-known Spanish playwright wrote, “Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”

ARPCA’s Porsche Touring Crew plans to live-out that concept by returning to the historic Summit Inn for its June 22 driving event.  Located atop Summit Mountain in Farmington, PA, the Inn’s sweeping 60-mile natural views will paint an emerald green backdrop for PTC’s veranda luncheon.
