Concours Corner By Chris and Jeff Erven The month of May was very quiet for NNJR concours workshops and events. The closest Porsche related event was the Cars and Croissants held at Paul Miller Porsche. This event drew many priceless Porsches as well as representations from what seemed to be every marque ever made. The […]
By Chris Erven At the time of writing this article, it is February and there is not a lot going on in the way of concours. My car, like many others, is tucked away in the garage snuggled under its cover. I do not have a lot of work this winter since I will not […]

The first Concours of the 2014 Season is coming up on Saturday May 3rd. This article is follow-on to the February article which covered concours preparation before leaving home for the event. As you leave for the event on May 3rd your Porsche should be in “ready to show condition”. By the time you get to the show field you have driven through the environment even if it is only a few miles and there will be brake dust on the wheels, bugs on the windshield, and maybe some tree sap on the paint. None of this is hard to deal with, but if you don’t plan for it, and leave time before the start of judging to address it, you may be disappointed with your score.
As is customary for NNJR the first judged concours event of the season is planned for the first Saturday of May. That is just about 3 months from the delivery of this edition of “Porschsforus.” The focus of this article is to give you an idea of how to get your Porsche ready for the concours season, including how to use the resources offered by the NNJR Concours Group.
Starting with February there is one event each month leading up to the May concours that can help you get ready. In February the “Dent Man” event will give you an opportunity to have any door dings or other minor dents removed by the expert. You will be able make an appointment to bring your Porsche to Flemington Porsche and have the “Dent Man” work on it at a discounted rate.
The Gathering of the Faithful event in March is an opportunity to get together with the “Concours Clan” to talk Porsches. The concours judges will be there for a workshop and will be glad to give you pointers on preparing your Porsche for the first event of the year.
