    I am taking my 991 this year no concour but will be drooling over the great early cars that will be there. Making a road trip out of it through Nashville (great town) and visiting family along the way. Hope to see some of you guys and gals there!

    We will be taking my 991.2 Turbo and entering in the FULL concours category. 3 days of concours prep in a steamy parking garage...just like last year in the Ozarks.

    Yep, I was there last year with my '71 Targa no air conditioning drove down from Chicago! I didn't see a category for 991's in the concours?

    Would love to go to Macy’s Parade.

    No desire to see a Porsche parade.

    +1 Already been several times! I am with you on most of the Porsche Parade, but enjoy seeing the early cars at the concours and meeting some of the earlyS members. So besides the concours I am doing the beer tasting, Everglades airboat ride and some golfing on my own (the Porsche event is a scramble so no interest). Oh and I also have a free place to stay nearby!

    It's in my backyard for a change and I've never been to one. Found out too late to enter anything but know a few cars that are going, so maybe. I hate Boca.

    I'll be going,,,,#34, can't stop now. Taking 72 S for the autocross, probably judging in concours. And like last year once again putting car in trailer and riding in air conditioned comfort in Cummings turbo diesel Dodge pick-up.

    Mike - 991s were plentiful in all concours categories from 'show and shine' to full. I've not been to 34 Parades like Ed, but regardless of location we really enjoy them and like-minded Porsche people who attend. 2017 Guards Red Turbo....stop by on concours day and say 'hi'.

    I am going and driving my 84 930 Slant about 900 miles. ....entering Prep street concours...just have to clean interior and exterior...so very easy and I have no illusions of placing. I just would like to see it on the lawn once. I completely redid AC so no problem with heat hopefully. Ed Mayo...see you there...
