Not since 1989 did Los Angeles have an official “Blizzard Warning” issued by National Weather Service. With forecasts of 5 inches of rain, low elevation snow, and 75 mph wind gusts, one had to wonder, would anybody show up for the Porsche Week? Rest assured, the classic Porsche community has survived decades of change and challenges, so for many, it was “business as usual,” only a bit slower and wetter.
7 Days of “Porsche Life”
To be accurate, SoCal Porsche Week starts on Monday with pre-arranged shop visits by those looking for something in particular. For example, I just learned of a $50K deal on 4-Cam parts that occurred days before the first open house. So while the schedule posted at LA Lit and Toy Show starts on Thursday, you can bet the “pros” are making their rounds earlier in the week. Likewise, some shops are just not big enough to host large groups, so it’s better to schedule an appointment. Bob Kann of GT Werk is a perfect example.
