Porsche Club of America to visit Traverse City, Mich., for 2013 Porsche Parade - Registration is OPEN!
PCA
PCA's showcase event, our annual Parade, will return to Traverse City, Mich., for the first time since 1989. A hidden gem for many, TC - as it's known to locals - is one of America's best-kept secret resorts. Known for its laconic beauty, its high-duned coast along Lake Michigan, and as the tart cherry-capital of America, TC offers a great variety of touring destinations, scenic, well-surfaced roads, beautiful vistas and a sophisticated small-town atmosphere as a home to a vibrant art, literature, and film community. Parade's host, The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, offers an amazing array of amenities, activities and facilities that will make this year's Parade one to remember. The Concours will be on-site, steps away from the hotel and Concours prep area. The two day autocross will be held at nearby Antrim County Airport. The Parade TSD and Gimmick Rallies will cruise through some incredibly beautiful scenery and visit several historically significant sites. And of course the Tech Quiz will have you wishing you'd read just one more book and checked your collections of manuals for the umpteenth time...

Let's not forget all the other great Parade activities for kids and adults that Parade has become known for over the years: the Art Show, the Hospitality Center, the driving and bus tours, the 5K Run/Walk, the RC car autocross and more, more, more! This year's Parade in Traverse City, Mich., is already gearing up to be another one to be talked-about for the ages. For more information, go to parade2013.pca.org Registration for the 2013 Porsche Parade opens on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. All registrations entered by midnight Thursday, March 14 will receive equal and highest priority. There will be no paper registration.

Maintenance on your new Porsche Boxster: Video
The Sports Car Guys
The new Porsche Boxster is quite a good sports car. In fact the car is so good that its performance gets uncomfortably close to the base Porsche 911 (991) Carrera. One thing that is always a concern with mid-engined is the cost of keeping up on routine maintenance. For many that buy a new Porsche Boxster they will just let a shop do it, but what if you enjoy doing routine maintenance yourself?
