This year's PCA Palooza in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, was another great Porsche gathering. 260 cars registered for this year's event, making it the second largest annual Porsche Club gathering in the US, next to the National Porsche Parade.
There were a number of drives to choose from going all over the Ozarks, and rightly so. Fall is a one of the best times to drive in Arkansas. The leaves have turned and the air is perfect: not too hot, not too cold, and just warm enough to open the windows or let the top down.
We opted for the drive east on Highway 62 to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Highway 62 winds just north of Beaver Lake, and through the Ozark Mountains.
The parade through historic downtown Eureka Springs was a great time, and the car show at the event HQ brought some really great cars.
Some of our favorites included the Signal Yellow 1972 911S, the 1974 Mexico Blue 911, and the 1954 356 Coupe. The Martini 918 was a nice surprise to see.
One of the highlights for us was seeing Frank Lloyd Wright's Bacham-Wilson House at Crystal Bridges. Some of the people on our drive even met Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was also touring the museum this weekend
As always, it was a great time to drive and see some Porsche friends we haven't had the chance to talk to since last year's event.
