Air-Cooled Porsche History Made in Winnetka

January 4, 2019

 

On August 19, 2018, a record setting 140 air-cooled Porsches from the far reaches of the Midwest converged in the village of Winnetka, Illinois. Each owner a passionate enthusiast of a bygone era. An era flush with automotive history. On that special Sunday in August 2018, enthusiasts shared their own unique history.

Going forward our Luftgruppe event will be known as Zuffengruppe. Learn more and register for the August 2019 event at http://www.zuffengruppe.com.

We want thank Nikko Salgado (www.nikkosalgado.com) for his excellent job capturing what vintage Porsche ownership is truly about.
