Air-cooled Porsche owners and collectors are invited to register to display their Porsches alongside other historic air-cooled models. There will be several lawn areas that will provide secure viewing by model type. The Great Lawn Display, and The Promenade Display; two special showcase locations, set up for the day, on the grounds of the Hoffman Center. “The Hoffman Center, a lasting tribute to Max Hoffman is a 155-acre nature preserve with a “Gold Coast” era mansion surrounded by open meadows, grasslands, water features, a bird preserve with rare plantings. This spectacular locale will usher everyone back to a time to when engines roared on Long Island and major auto racing was born,” continues Jacobson. The excitement begins at 7 AM with coffee and breakfast, followed by a discussion of the displays, Porsche activities, and a gourmet lunch with specialty chef selections, a beer garden, wine and spirits including specialty food and dessert trucks, a live DJ, and Bavarian Folk Dancing.
