Air Brigade members won big at the Euro Auto Festival held in Greenville, SC on Saturday, October 19, 2019. The EURO is one of the biggest all-European auto festivals on the East Coast. Over 400 European cars participate in the event with over 12 air-cooled Porsches competing.


Air Brigade members participating included:

· Charlie Hickey – 1972 Porsche 911T Targa

· TD King – 1989 Porsche Carrera Anniversary Edition

· Rob Cart – 1957 Porsche 356A Coupe

· Jim Phillips – 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster

· Jeremy Montgomery – 1987 Porsche 930 and 1974 Porsche 914

· Joe Esposito – 1972 911E

· Carl von Schummer – Showed his water cooled 1999 Porsche 996 Cab but is a member with his 1978 Porsche 911SC


It was a drizzly day but reports are that the crowds were strong and enjoying the classic Porsches on display.

Based on the numbers of air-cooled Porsches on the show field that are not Air Brigade members a bigger recruiting job is needed to make owners aware of the community.


Air Brigade Winners included:

  • POR1: Jim Phillips and his 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster

  • POR2: Charlie Hickey and his 1972 Porsche 911T Targa

  • 914 Class: Jeremy Montgomery and his 1974 Porsche 914

The POR3 winner was a 1989 Porsche Speedster with one family ownership from new. The original owner father has now passed it on to his son who was showing it at the EURO. It was a nice example of a Speedster in Guards Red in contrast to the silver normally seen on a Porsche Speedster.


Congratulations to all the winners, but especially to the Air Brigade members who won and showed their Classic Porsches that help make the EURO such a large east coast show based here in the Southeast.
