We hope you will join us. We aren't that far from you and usually there are some nice open roads to enjoy on a Sunday morning.

Hi Guys,

Even with it being a holiday weekend, we had a really nice turn out and a lot of new faces...so thanks for coming out and exercising the cars. Always nice chatting with our regulars, Bill, Ray, Ed, Steve 930, MikeS, Mike 458, Kenny TR, Ken yellow 997S, Dan, Raoul Lotus Elise, Steve 986, Martin, and Jim & Elizabeth who brought their beautiful Chevy Bel Air (rather than the Esprit S4 for a change). Jim definitely gets the award for the oldest vehicle that has attended our C&C. I believe the oldest car to attend prior to yesterday was from 1970. There were also some girls at the meet, Sue and Elizabeth got to chat with Jill. I'm glad I also got to meet several of the new attendees...Don S7, Hans (964), David 993, Scott 986, John, Ronald, and Shamous. I know I'm missing a bunch of people who were there...so please forgive me. I'm sure Ill get all the names next time

Below are a few pix. I'm hoping we might get in maybe 2 more meets and/or possibly a short drive before the end of the season. Our next meet if the weather cooperates will be on Sept 20th. Also, a few people asked to be on our email list for reminders when we meet. If you want to be on the list just PM me with an email address and you will be added to the list.

Best regards,
Dino

Boston Cup Car Show is that day at the Boston Common., so i will be going to that instead. Was hoping to do two events in one day but both of these start at the same time and end near the same time. You should definitely go to this event. Great cars and some that you may never see ever again IF you don't go.

Sorry, but there is limited time in the season left for our meets and driving. We are not canceling our meet for other events. Not to mention, virtually nothing is there that I'll never see again if I don't go (only shows were that happened were Pebble Beach and Amelia Island). Finally, on Sunday I'll probably be doing a practice run from our Taunton meet for one of our C&C group drives in October. So too many reasons to stick with our original game plan.

As always, hope to catch up with you at another meet.

Thanks again,
Dino

Hi guys,

Sorry about having to cancel yesterday at the last minute for rain, I thought we would just have clouds. I was in the garage getting the car ready to take out to go to C&C when the clouds turned dark and it started pouring! Anyway, we will be meeting this Sunday September 27th!

I heard 4 people still showed up, so they all deserve honorable mentions for braving the rain. I had several people text me to inquire if we were meeting and I texted those who's cell #s I have. If you want me to be able to text about cancellations or your want to text to ask me about possible last minute cancellations, pleased send me a PM or email with your name and cell and I will gladly provide mine to you.

See you guys this coming Sunday, 9/27 .
Best regards,
Dino

Hey Guys,

A very nice turn out for our "Make up" rain date meet. Plenty of our regulars were there, Kenny, Ken, Frank, Dan, Hans (Cayman S), Michael, Mike, Bill, Ed, and several of our more recent regulars, Shamous, Hans (air cooled 911), Ron, and Steve & George. I still have not met the Mondial T owner, but hopefully in the future.

I'm not sure if we will be able to squeeze in another meet this season. If we can, I will post it. We will NOT be meeting on Columbus Day weekend. Also, Raul (white Elise), if you are reading this send me a PM or an email.

Below are a few highlights from yesterday,

Hi Guys,

What a great day going for our end of the season fun run with the "Taunton Crew." Had a blast driving the back roads of southern MA and RI and then grabbing lunch. As always it was great catching up with so many of our friends. Jim and Elizabeth represented the Lotus crew with their beautiful S4 (so glad you guys could join us. We are just starting to get feedback and it sounds like everyone had a great time. Catch up with you guys soon.

Best regards,
Dino

Hi Guys,

This coming Sunday, Nov 1st, will be our final meet for the season. I look forward to catching up with those of you who aren't too hungover from Halloween parties. So while the roads are still clear of sand, salt, and other natural enemies of beautiful cars, I encourage you to make the most of the driving season, and join us for our last meet of 2015. To those who can't make it, I look forward to seeing you guys in 2016 if not sooner!

Best regards,
Dino

Hi Guys,

Even with iffy weather in some places, we still had a nice turnout from many of our regulars, and we had several new attendees. Welcome Dave, John, Bill Mc, and Mark.

Thanks to everyone for joining us this year! You all made it a lot of fun and we hope to see everyone again in the spring.
Best regards,
Dino

Below are a few photos from yesterday. I meant to take more photos but somehow didn't get around to it.



Dave's supercharged 928GT. Who says you can't have hot rod Porsches?
