Midwest 356 Club

Welcome, Porsche 356 Enthusiasts of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin!

What's New?

  • On May 16, the club had its first virtual monthly breakfast over Zoom. 17 members were in attendance, and the conversation was lively.

  • Two weeks into being forced to stay home by the coronavirus, the Midwest 356 Club held its first, and we hope its last, Shelter In Place Car Show.  The turnout was huge, and you can view the results here.

  • On Easter Sunday club members Jason Kick and Cindy Olson made a driving tour of the deserted streets of downtown Chicago in their 356B Coupe, stopping along the way to photograph the car in front of a large selection of the city's landmarks.  Click here to see the results.

  • Spring greetings to you from the Midwest 356 Club on this snowy afternoon!  Despite the various stay-at-home protocols in place as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, your club is still hard at work.  The board held its regularly scheduled board meeting on March 21 by phone, and we are committed to offering a quality program in a safe manner.  Because the trajectory of the current epidemic cannot be foreseen, we will evaluate each event independently regarding health safety.  We will modify, postpone, or cancel events, as needed.  There are many great events planned for 2020, and we’re hoping to do as many as possible.  Please check your inbox and this website for updates.
    Please contact me if you have any questions, and stay healthy!
