    Well folks, it's time to get the ball rolling! I'm very pleased to announce that we will be holding the 2nd annual "Cool Cars for Cats and Canines" on April 28, 2012, at the AACA Museum in Hershey, PA.

    Last year we had a terrific turnout, and overall it proved to be a great success. We really would like to duplicate that this year, and hopefully even "grow" a little.

    As many of you know, my wife Betsy is the chairman of "Castaway Critters". This wonderful organization has saved the lives of more than 7,500 dogs and cats over the past ten years. Your generosity with last year's show has allowed this kind of work to continue.

    Here's the website where you will find detailed information about the show. There is also a page for registration: http://www.coolcarsforcatsandcanines.com/

    Thanks to everyone for considering helping out this very worthy cause.

    This is a great show at a great location for a great cause. Definitely worth attending. I hope to make it up again.

    Plus you have the incredible AACA car museum to check out while you are 32 feet from the entrance.

    We really appreciate it guys, thankyou. I really think it will turn out great. Lots of awards, raffles and prizes, and of course awesome cars.

    Nick, sorry you won't be able to make it. Give your mother a little assistance trying to blow out all of those candles.

    David, thanks so much. We absolutely would love for you to step up in the awards dept. Last year's awards were awesome!

    Nick, I was hoping to see you and your terrific RS again. I was envisioning the RS and my 959 parked next to each other. This may be the first public event for the 959. Looks like it's finally heading to the U.S. I hope the temps for this year's event are warmer than last year. It was chilly all day, with a stiff wind. But you're a good son to be with your mom on her 85th. My mom just turned 94. Hope yours and mine have many more birthdays to celebrate.

    That 959 is a wonderful car. It would be a real treat to see that in person. Only have seen an example once before at the 50th anniversary at Radnor in 06. Bring it on!!!

    Have you had a chance to driver her? Has to be interesting. I would assume it would hang close to the GRX, if you wanted to go balls to the wall.

    Don, the 959 is unbelievable. I have never seen one in person. What will the federalization process involve?

    And of course, thanks to everyone who has signed up so far. Please pass this information along to any of your car enthusiast friends. We really want to make a solid effort for the care of the companiona animals in the "Castaway Critters" network.

    Hi Tom

    I am really looking forward to bringing my F430 to this year's show. The range of cars last year was amazing. I received a newsletter from our local animal shelter recently and they are overflowing with cats and dogs that need homes. The problem is epidemic. I think it is amazing that Castaway Critters has found homes for over 7,500 critters in the last 10 years. I know that Castaway does an incredible job in keeping their overhead low so that maximum donations go the benefit of the animals. Count me in for any help you need.

    Hey Jared,

    We have not yet compiled the list, but I can assure you that there is some awesome machinery attending. I will put something together shortly. Remember guys, registration closes in 6 weeks. We have some great things planned for this year. There will even be a 2003 Jordan Formula 1 car there. See the pics on the website:http://coolcarsforcatsandcanines.com/

    Algar, Harrisburg Fiat and Competizione are our sponsors thus far. You know that Algar is going to bring a few nice cars, and Harrisburg Fiat is trying to have the 500 Abarth at the show as well.

    And to the many that have asked via email, yes there will be a few animals there. We will have a puppy playpen, as well as a few kittens and cats up in one of the tent areas.

    Thank you to all who have registered so far. And to the rest, won't you please consider helping us out with this very charitable event?

    Soco ,who is a rescue Dane from a shelter, was out tonight at a nursing home helping their lives be more enjoyable would like to come to the show. Along with my 328 they would make perfect pair. He is a certified therapy dog and would make a wonderful addition to the car show showing what a little patience, good luck and sound dog training would produce. Soco also is involved with the Reads program which helps children gain confidence in reading since the dogs don't criticize the reader and allows increased practice in reading. He was also at the Shippensburg university for finals week allowing a bit of relaxation to the students during the stressful finals week. The link below shows Soco he is the first dog and only Dane shown

    Since I have not heard whether Soco, who is a rescue Great Dane, a registered therapy dog, helping children read and enriching lives of people in nursing homes along with being at the Farm Show complex for children is not allowed to come I will be coming alone and Carol will be not be coming. They are now committed to something else. Looking forward to seeing the group w/o Soco.

    Im gonna start a thread for a cruise from West Chester and can organize that...

    As far as the Harrisburg area, if this pertains to anyone, my dad will be in the area still to lead a group, and will start a thread for that as well. There has been an interest in both cruises and so were going to move forward with planning them. Was thinking of having everyone meet at the Cars and Coffee Camp Hill location at Sophias on Market. Tom feel free to chime in if this is something that may work and with suggestions, we are up for anything really, just wanna get the thread up soon. Thinking an earlier start for the West Chester meetup, at their Cars and Coffee for departure and same way for Camp Hill just not as rushed for time since its a good amount closer to Hershey.

    Tom, I definitely plan to attend again. I'm trying to figure out a trailer so that I can bring the Ferrari CS and my 97 993 twin turbo. Such an amazing event for a great cause. Last year, despite the cold, it was awesome fun!

    Evan, that would be perfect. Round up those West Chester guys and bring 'em over. The Sophia's meet up would also work for the local crowd. Some of the local guys will be helping out at the show, so they will probably be heading over a little earlier. Thanks for offering your efforts in organizing the caravans. We really do appreciate it. And thanks to your Father as well.

    Joe, you stud! That would be awesome. We would be so pleased to have them both. The CS is of course one of my all time faorites. And I had a '96 993, so I know how special the 993 TT is.

    And just a reminder to everybody, registration closes in less than 2 weeks. Please visit the show website to register. And please take a look at the sponosor page and support those who have so generously donated in order to make this event a reality.

    For about 2 weeks I haven't been able to post my password was hosed up and wouldn't reset. Not that I post allot. Looks like they worked through the problem. I am hoping Ade will come too. Hope they brought some animals. Not that we need more.
