I spoke (via email) with Charles Navarro of LN Engineering...he will be there promoting some of his products. Be sure to stop by and say Hello, since he and Jake Raby contribute quite a bit to the Boxster forums, as well as sponsor this site.

http://cpa-pca.org/swap/index.html

The Central PA Region of the Porsche Club of America is once again bringing its world-famous Porsche-Only Swap Meet to Hershey, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, April 25th, 2009. This is without exaggeration the largest event of its kind on the planet. It typically brings nearly 650 vendors, around 1,000 Porsches, and over 6,000 visitors together in Hershey every year. (In 2003 the long-distance award went to a 968 driver from Albuquerque, NM!)

If you’re seeking an obscure Porsche or an obscure part for your Porsche, this is your best chance to find it.

Every dealer and Porsche packrat in a 250-mile radius will be bringing their odds and ends for sale or swap. You’ll see exotic Porsches found nowhere this side of Stuttgart, and Porsche personalities ranging from PCA muckety-mucks to (sometimes) celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld. We’ll once again be featuring a People’s Choice Concours on Saturday, and a Sunday Autocross on the same site. So come Saturday for your parts, install ’em Saturday night, and run ’em Sunday!

• Same location as April 2008
• Largest gathering of Porsches in USA
• Reserved Porsche-Only Parking for over 900 cars
• Porsche-Only Parking $10/car
• Gates open 7:30am & close 4pm
• Event held rain or shine
• Admission is Free, Parking $10/car
• On site food, beverage and clean bathrooms
• ATM within 10min drive
• Peoples Choice Concours
• Porsche Corral $20/car, no pre-reg. nec.
• Reserved Parking for Porsche Caravans
• Porsche-Only Autocross, Sunday the 26th
• No pets/animals allowed

SPACES AVAILABLE DAY OF EVENT $50
PLUS $25 TOWNSHIP FEE

Yup, I'll be there - spaces C21 & C22. Nothing really for sale, but lots for show and tell.

Charles, I'm looking forward to seeing you and the "new" 2.9 Raby engine at BFR in a couple weeks...hope your wife is looking forward to the event. I assume the engine will be broken in by then!

Wish I could make it to Hershey; never been there before.

12 noon meeting place.

You may consider dropping by at B-77, Dennis from PA's booth, at 12 noon. Wife and I will drop by then and maybe we can meet some of you firsthand for a change? Dennis has had two engines go on him and is selling off some of his Boxster stuff. I am sure he will have some "interesting" tales about his cross country trips in his late Boxcar. He now drives a Nissan or some other style of rice rocket.
