ON THE MORNING OF SEPT. 11, UCR members and fellow Porsche aficionados attended the inaugural Cars and Coffee event at the new Porsche of London dealership on Wharncliffe Road. The parking lot was bustling with over 80 Porsches and nearly 100 fans.
Not only were there plenty of modern Porsches to ogle but many classics as well including a 914, 928, 968 and several vintage 911s. The event was catered with coffee, juice and all the breakfast fixings including fruit, cheese and every kind of baked pastry one could wish for.
Not only was the date fitting (9/11) but the weather was perfect and the company was splendid. Folks drove from the north, south, east and west to attend. Many long-time members were in attendance as well as a few members who were new to UCR or who had not been out to a club event in a number of years. It was great to see so many familiar faces and to meet many new ones. Seven folks even signed up to become new members on the spot — look for them at the next social and give them a warm UCR welcome.
Thanks to General Manager Steve Rempel and the rest of the Porsche of London team for putting on such a great event. Upper Canada Region looks forward to visiting with you again soon. </>
