Planning to go. I'll probably leave the Boxster at home and bring the 1989 911. My brother will bring his '01 Boxster, so we'll be well represented.

LMAO! Funny thing is (and this is probably sacrilege), the Boxster is much more fun as a daily driver! The poor 911 comes out for show off days and Sunday cruises. The 911 has 53,000 miles and the Boxster is at 122,00 and climbing fast.
Of course, I could rub it in worse and tell you the Carrera is Guards red with black leather, unmolested mint, second owner. Had it since 1998...

I'm going in my bruised but resilient Boxster, and I (and the box) will be hanging with the 928 crowd. I was going to take my shark, but I have a leak out the front of the engine that I have not been able to trace yet, so Blumaxx stays home this year. I'm actually really looking forward to taking the Boxster, especially if the weather is good.

I'll be there helping out PCA from 9:00 to 1:00. I'm hoping I'll be too busy to be tempted to buy anything!

Drive it. I change the oil every 5000 miles and do routine stuff when mandated by Porsche or when I don't have anything else to work on and the shop is lonely, other than that, use it. It's my wife's daily driver, keeps her out of the 911. On a funny note, she's a motor head too. For a time she wouldn't take the Boxster to work. When I asked why, the response was "I was on the way home the other night and realized I was doing 115mph on the bridge, figured I'm going to get in trouble".
I talked her out of it by saying I have bail money. She has it at work right now...

If it breaks, I'll fix it. I don't think it will.

I'm heading up with some PCA folks from Shenandoah Region. We're leaving the cars at home and all piling in a van.

I would love to go as I am in NJ and not that far away, but I can't find a schedule of events or even driving directions on the PCA site or swap meet site. Anyone have this info?
