Porsche Parade July 9th.

Hi everyone! Please lmk asap here or by personal email (better than PM for me) if you are interested in participating in this Classic Porsche Parade of senior residences in the GTA region.

There will be 4 different parades on July 9. Each one will start at one of the Porsche Centres and each will drive to 1 retirement residence. Downtown Porsche and PCNT start at 9am. Then Pfaff and PC Oakville start at 1pm.

There will be a designated speaker at each location who is going to explain the 12 cars in each parade. Just a short blurb.

Depending on how many cars we get signed up, we may have some cars participate in both a morning session and an afternoon session.

No rain date.

Again, please lmk asap if you'd like to participate. I'll be joining the 1 p.m. meet at Oakville.

CANCELLED August 1-2 2020 24 Minutes of Le Mans 50th tribute at Mosport tentative schedule: CANCELLED

Like the 2019 event, PCA Club Racing will be going on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so there'll be lots of screaming Porsche car action to check out.

Participants travelling from afar are encouraged to roll in Saturday to hang out. There's lots to take in on the track and the PCA paddock. We can gauge interest for a fun run for supper.

We'll retire back to the track for a campfire Saturday night.

Sunday will be a corral/show (all cars in place by 10 a.m. please) with the "24 Minutes of Le Mans" parade laps around noon. If it's anything like last year, our 24 minutes will likely stretch out longer. This time, it's looking like online advance registration will be required for a limit of 50 cars. Current thinking is to charge an economical amount to cover a meal following the parade laps. Please stay tuned to make sure that you don't miss out on registering. Registration may open as early as June 14th (in celebration of the 1970 Le Mans victory). More details to follow.

If anyone has ideas to contribute please share.

For our US friends, just ask TonyA (Pennsylvania) or Garland (Michigan) about the 2019 event. Garland's videos show what an awesome venue Mosport is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thxBh6Ol3wk...eature=youtu.be
Garland has more video if you want to search it out.

Camping at Mosport is great with good bathroom and shower facilities.

Please note that this is a PCA event. Not a member? -please allow me to refer you here: https://www.pca.org/join-porsche-club-america

Great time at the UCR social at the Oakville Porsche Centre on Tuesday. Picked up some nice classic tires at Mantis while in town (thanks Wayne).
David C left his teener at home, but Walter was there with his six and my son Jack and I were in the white car. Lots of enthusiasm for 914s and some new contacts for SIG914. A great night for me as Walter threw me the keys to his 3.0 litre six. What a car! After over 30 years of 914 ownership, I finally got to drive a six! Thanks Walter! Here's the pair as the dew settled in. Thanks to our hosts, Oakville Porsche Centre and UCR PCA.

Hi John.
Great to see you and Walter at the Porsche Centre event Tuesday. Sorry, guys, for being a bad 914 enthusiast and not driving it to Oakville, I hope you didn't spot me leaving in a 911!
Regrets for the Restoration event as I have a previous engagement.
But here's a shot of my car after just waxing it (if you look closely, you can tell I've perfected "wax on" only).
John, lmk if you ever want to drive my car - its engine displacement is more than half Walter's - haha.Attached Image
Have fun, guys.

I should be able to make the Restoration Design event (need to look at new floor pans while I'm there) and scavenge around for an original radio (working or not). Need to confirm a few logistical items.Attached Image

We are welcoming all to come check out the shop and the new building we have just completed. This will be our 10 year anniversary that we are celebrating!

Here is the 914/6 that we are currently assembling. As well as several other 914's that will be here, I hope to have on display an Ivory 1970 914/6. It is in need of a full restoration and will be for sale.

I hope to see many of you here.

Pete

Hey guys, thanks for posting!

Here's the latest from Peter deJonge of Restoration Design:

914s will be coralled in one area and I will personally give a tour to the 914 group.
We will have our 914/6 that is under restoration on display. I also hope to have another 6 here that we just purchased. It is a project car that will be for sale.


Spread the word! Let's see all those 914s one last time before they go into hibernation!

Hi Tony, I'd love to make the boardwalk show but can't swing it. What a great destination. I believe our UCR Zone 1 rep is making the journey. Looking forward to your pics as you represent the 914s!!!

Mark your calendars now and save the date for the first annual Boardwalk Reunion at Ocean City, New Jersey on Saturday, 19 October 2019. Jointly hosted by PCA Zone 1 & Zone 2, and supported by the 356 Registry, Boardwalk Reunion will bring hundreds of Porsches to ‘America’s Greatest Family Resort’ on the South Jersey shore. Boardwalk Reunion is more than just a laidback cars and coffee on the Boards- it’s a unique opportunity to drive up onto and display your Porsche on one of New Jersey’s most iconic Boardwalks against an ocean backdrop that is simply spectacular. You’ll be able to meet and socialize with Porsche owners from across the Mid-Atlantic region, and savor Ocean City at its most beautiful and peaceful time of the year. We’ll marshal at Ocean City’s Municipal Airport at 10 AM, depart an hour later under police escort, and then park and hang out on the mile long Boardwalk until 4:00 PM. There will be plenty of time to socialize, to shop and have lunch downtown or on the Boardwalk, enjoy free tech sessions at the Music Pier, walk the beach and take lots of great photos! Join us for a Beach Party on Saturday night at the Flanders Hotel, right off the Boardwalk- we’ll have great Boardwalk comfort food, cocktails and a DJ. Special room rates at the Flanders and nearby hotels. See our Facebook page for more details:

Some of our Quebec teeners are looking at hosting Mike "Dr. Evil" in the Montreal area for a 901 trans rebuild clinic. PM 914canuck for more info if you'd like to join. Here's a brief from Mike:

I talked with Stephane last night and he let me know what questions people were asking. I can start off with that I have been rebuilding Porsche 901 and 915 transmissions for 15 or more years. I have been doing group clinics since about 2007 and have done dozens with up to 22 students. I have done two in Port Hope, Ontario at a friends house over the years and now we are looking at doing one in Cantley.
1- Can we do 915 as well? No. The 915 is a different animal and considerably more frustrating to rebuild. The 901 is a simple, straight forward transmission that can be done in a day. I will do 915, but I do not teach them as it can take a few days and I do not have spare parts (or many) so have to order everything.

2 - How long is the class? I set aside a whole weekend. Typically starting Sat morning around 9-10 and then going until we are all spent, which has been 2-3am. However, with a small group I have had an easy time getting everyone done by 10pm. The second day can be used as a safety, at that point.

3 - How much? If we can get a solid 5 people to pay, then $300/person. If you have a 18yo or younger co-builder, they are free as we want to get the young ones and family involved in this hobby and having younger folks around is a good time.

4 - Other expenses/what usually goes out? I have been adamantly pushing that everyone change their main bearings (two pinion and two input shaft bearings) when they open up the transmission unless they have a rare case of knowing that the transmission has low miles and was not abused. The bearing sets retail for $1200-1300. I sell them for $750. You will also need a seal kit. You can get this yourself, or I can supply them. It is not cheaper for me to supply them other than maybe saving on shipping as I get them for same retail price as the retailers sell them. Things that wear out on the transmissions, other than the aforementioned bearings, are typically 1 and 2nd teeth and bands. Everyone should plan to replace these. 1/R slider is another thing that is often bad. 2-3 slider often is also worn, see cost below. 3-5 gears are a crap shoot as to what is worn and we can postulate prior to my arrival what might be wrong in your transmission.
Costs of parts:
Bands - $45 ea used limited supply, New $90ea
Teeth - $75ea, used limited supply, new $130ea
1/R slider - Good used $150 limited supply, new $350 ( retail $450)
2-5 slider - Used limited supply $80, new $192

So, if you are counting this up at home you should have come up with the following as a ball park cost:
Tuition - $300
Bearings - $750
Seal kit - About $45
1/R slider - $150new/$350used
Synchro bands - $90/$180
Synchro teeth - $150/$260
2-5 slider - $80/$192

Total = $1415 used/$2077 new

I have about 12 cores to part out before this clinic and this will help with used parts. As you can see, they can save you a lot.

This format here allows us to actually do some work before the clinic and we can all share in diagnosis and treatment plan for your transmission. Once we decide on a date for the clinic, and I get tuition paid, we can do part of the clinic here in group with me guiding minimal disassembly of your transmission so we can better predict what is necessary for repair. We can see if you need a 1/R slider, or how many bands if you take good pics. Also, we can inspect your pinion as a group and everyone can learn from the diagnosis and inspection. This means you will show up to the workshop with gear stack removed and ready to go. Special tools are needed to disassemble the gear stack and I wont have you try that on your own.
