OCIC 2012

Just a heads up to get the dates in your diary. 7/13 through 7/15 2012 in Wichita KS.
The DFW group and the KS group have joined forces to host the 2012 convention in Wichita, KS.
The hotel is the Hyatt and the Conference Center is attached to the Hotel. All air conditioned just like the two previous conventions in Wichita.
That weekend Wichita is also hosting the Automobilia Moonlight Car Show with hundreds of cars.

Wichita is also within 70 miles of being the center of the main land USA so it will be better for everone to make the trip - North, South, East and West.

The OCIC 2012 team look forward to seeing you there.

This is an open event and all are welcome.

You don't have to drive it... They do even have air service to Wichita! LOL! It would be a FUN DRIVE though and I suspect you would be able to convoy up with several friends!

Hey hey Roger and all 928 OCers, thanks a million for taking the bull by the balls and making the OCIC happen again in Wichita! I mean really.

Thanks to all for making the effort to show up, drive, fly and sponsors and vendors hauling their wares. It was very enlightening and well done.

Fine specimens were everywhere, perhaps the cream of the crop at least as far as I have seen at these events.

A very high level of care and attention to detail was most evident, just look at some of the pictures surfacing...

We all can be quite proud of our Club and the contributions it makes to the 928 Community.

Well done All!

Marc

11th set of 5 pictures from OCIC 2012 in Wichita. I think the only duplicate car pictures in the bunch are of Sean's car as he and Victor are installing the SC and I wanted to make sure I got a picture of Sean with the car. Somehow, I only ended up with the picture of the tailend of Jerry Feather's GTS4 as it was going in the trailer for the ride home.

Very good pixs. Was wondering about the local blue 928 S4 for sale at the show. Never met the owner - had something like 69 K miles. Just curious about price and details about the car. Ted

I had a great time seeing old friends, and meeting new ones! Couldn't believe how hot it was on the way out from Las Vegas. My car did really well considering I've only had this one a couple of months. Made a great shakedown run before 3rd coast. Now I've got a list of things that need done by November.

As I pulled into my driveway, the radiator core let go. New one is on it's way.

This was my first OCIC, I'll be back, best time ever, and the cars were fantastic! Being a member of this club is money well spent.

BTW, we really missed James Morrison, hope to see ya at 3rd coast.

James, you shoulda been there! Everybody should have been there! There was something going on every second we were in the exhibition hall. The days flew by. Then we partied till late in the night.

Thanks for the compliments on the pictures folks. I tried to get in the same position for each car, and was gonna go back and take pics of the interiors but honestly just ran out of time.

Thanks guys! I would have LOVED to have been there! Just was not in the cards for me this time. Glad to have the '95 back though...

I won't make much if any of 3rd Coast this year either. It always lands on my college reunion weekend and (as much as I hate to think about it) this is my 25th reunion. UGH! Looking forward to seeing all those old friends though, but really missing out on my 928 hommies!
