It’s that time of year. Time to carve pumpkins? Time to rake leaves? Time to have a pumpkin spice latte/cookie/air freshener/cake? Time to figure out who shouldn’t set next to each other at Thanksgiving dinner? Well,it might actually be time for all of those. However, in this case it is time to prep your Porsche for its long winter slumber safely away from the ice, snow, and the ultimate enemy road salt. Road & Track (Click here) has a fairly exhaustive list of steps to prep your car for hibernation, including a few steps regarding rodent control that I hadn’t considered. But, In a past occupation, I had the misfortune to see a great number or wiring harnesses chewed through by rodents who seem to have no regard for other people’s property. So maybe a little sealing of openings and animal repellent is not out of line to employ.
Even if your car is going into hibernation you don’t have to; there are a still ARPCA events even into the dead of winter. A brief appears below. If you’re starting your holiday shopping early TwoEight Printing has updated their merchandise offerings and there’s the Mart for hard-to-find Porsche accessories and a couple of cars as well
Here’s to seeing you out there,

Das Chlorofil 300: Ridges, Roadapples, and Rivers Run – October 22nd
A day-long driving tour through northern Pennsylvania’s wild Country
The 300-mile driving route passes through picturesque mountains, Amish farm communities, state and national forests, and fantastic two-lane roads that wind through canopies of brilliant fall foliage. Lunch en route at the famous Buck’s Pizza of Clearfield followed by a catered dinner and Porsche car show at the Meredith Inn, Kittanning.
Porsche Touring Crew – Allegheny Grille – October 25th
Touring Crew Reprises Foxburg Visit
Featuring Fall Foliage and a Dip
That’s right – the Porsche Touring Crew is returning to one of its October favorites — the Allegheny Grille — but No! – no one will be taking a “dip” in the Allegheny River or competing in a ballroom dance contest.
The Grille, located on a scenic curve in the Allegheny at Foxburg, PA an hour and twenty-five minutes north of Pittsburgh, is well-known for its varied menu, which, among other things, features a signature prime rib sandwich called (you guessed it), the AG French Dip. And although it’s unlikely that any PTCers will be bringing their swim suits, the restaurant was recently voted the #1 Waterfront Restaurant in Pennsylvania.
