Known simply as the Lit Meet among the Porsche faithful, the annual Los Angeles gathering is actually a full three days of multiple celebrations for the little rear-engine sports cars from Germany.
The events surrounding the Porsche and Vintage VW Literature, Toy and Memorablia Swap Meet at the LAX Hilton took place Feb. 28 through March 2, and included a “shop crawl” of the many terrific restoration businesses in the LA area, most focusing on the original 356 and early 911 models, and a major swap meet in Anaheim of classic Porsche parts and accessories.
Weather was an issue at this year’s Porsche party, with sometimes-heavy rain coming down on all three days. But the shows went on without a worry, and thousands of devotees made the pilgrimage and shrugged off the rain.
