Porsche Touring Crew – July 25th

The Club at Nevillewood

The ARPCA Porsche Touring Crew returns to The Club at Nevillewood on July 25th in Presto, Pennsylvania.  We thank them for hosting PTC again this year.  This country club boasts one of the top golf courses in the Pittsburgh area.  In 1980, Jack Nicklaus came to Pittsburgh and was asked to design a championship-caliber golf course.  The result is The Club at Nevillewood course.  Opening in 1992, the course continues to be recognized for its premier layout.  From 1998 until 2005, The Club was the host site of the Mario Lemieux Celebrity Invitational Celebrity Players Tour.

Need a great way to enjoy the first weekend of August? How about starting your Saturday at The Lot at Edgewater restaurant in Oakmont?

The Lot has attractive breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus, and the adjoining cigar bar features products from Oakmont’s Smoke n’ Guns shop.

The venue has a large parking lot and an outside covered patio that overlooks the parking area. Parking space for Porsches has been reserved along the Allegheny Avenue (Railroad Side) of the restaurant.

There is no cost for this event and registration is not necessary.  Just show up with your favorite gem of German engineering and share some coffee, breakfast, and time with your fellow ARPCA members.

Pittsburgh Cars and Coffee: – August 12th

From: https://pghcnc.com/about/

“Started in 2010, Pittsburgh Cars ‘N’ Coffee is a non-profit social club focusing on exotic and modern performance automobile enthusiasts in Western Pennsylvania. We hold bi-weekly meets at Generoasta Coffee in Warrendale as well as other shows and charity events throughout the year.”

From: https://pghcnc.com/calendar/

“Pittsburgh Cars ‘N’ Coffee will have Porsche as the featured vehicle for our August 12th meet.  The main parking area will be completely reserved for Porsche-only vehicles.  We usually have well over 100 Porsches in attendance for this event. You are welcome to bring your non-Porsche sports cars but ask that you do not park in the main coned-off area.  We appreciate everyone’s cooperation so that we may park the featured vehicles together.”

There’s a rumor there might be a large multi-day event involving cars in the near future, maybe even some Porsches.  It would be great to have images of ARPCA members enjoying the PVGP. Thank you all in advance!

Image submitted by T. Linder – “2020 914 event called Teenerpaluza that was held in Pigeon Forge TN. Lots of driving on the local winding roads like the Dragon and Cherolla highway.”
