Cars and Coffee April 15 at Old Oak Cafe

All Blue Ridge Region PCA members are invited and encouraged to attend Cars N Coffee on Saturday April 15, 2023 starting at 9:30am.  Come for great cars and food, but most importantly to socialize with other club members!  What an awesome way to connect with club members and to fill the cool days.

There is no club cost to attend this event, but members are responsible for their meals and beverages.  Registration is limited to members of the Blue Ridge Region PCA and their family or guest.  Be sure to go all the way through the form and click on the Complete Registration button!

This is a limited capacity event so register early.  A waitlist will be maintained once the event fills to accommodate additional attendees as cancelations occur.

Cars ‘n Coffee at The Neighbors Place

Our first weekday event was a success with 23 members in attendance at The Neighbors Place in Lynchburg. The weather was cloudy and cool when we arrived, and with a few raindrops as we left, but the atmosphere inside was warm and friendly.

Two long-time members, who had been unable to attend events, were able to attend and everyone was happy to see them again. Everything at the restaurant was excellent making it a possible “visit again” location.

With the success of our first weekday event, more are being planned for this year. We hope to see you there.

Motorsports

Porsche in 1952

Of all the editions of La Carrera Pan Americana, these are the first two Porsches to register and certainly the first to complete in the American Continent, as well as the first two to step on Mexican territory. The Germans with the number 10 Graf Von Berckhelm and with the number 11, Prince Metternich, (Pan American Race 1952)
