UPDATE: it might be April Fools Day, but this is no Joke! Tickets for Luftgekühkt 2017 are on sale as of today. This year, Patrick and Howie are featuring a designated parking area for air-cooled Porsches. Spaces are limited, on a first come, first served basis and limited to pre-1998 air-cooled Porsches only. Please make sure your car fits these requirements or your registration will be rejected. No exceptions. For those that don't get their ticket fast enough there will be plenty of free parking so you can still attend the show without breaking the bank. General admission is $20 and tickets can be purchased here. As for location, we've narrowed it down to somewhere inside the Port of Los Angeles, we just don't know as to what warehouse yet. Perhaps the San Pedro Craft Market, but that's just a guess on our part.
It's hard to believe that this coming May will bring us the fourth iteration of Patrick Long and Howie Idelson's now iconic Porsche car show, Luftegkühlt. Can a car show become "iconic" after just 3 previous gatherings? Here at FLATSIXES.com, we think so. Initially branded as a series of "automotive-themed events featuring a tightly-curated list of historically significant or interesting cars – both race and street" Luftgekühlt has quickly become a cult of all things air-cooled. Today, Long and Idelson announced the date for their latest show, Luftgekühlt 4. It's the first weekend in May (Sunday May 7th) and will be held somewhere in Los Angeles.
Like with previous "save the date" announcements, Patrick and Howie haven't given out the venue yet. but after the last three choice you can be sure the space will compliment the cars and add interest to the overall show. As we get more information we'll be sure to pass it along. For now, feel free to look back at our coverage of the first three shows including:
- Visiting Patrick Long's Luftgekühlt with Magnus Walker, Patrick Dempsey and Chad McQueen
- Sitting Down With Patrick Long to Talk Luftgekühlt, Driving for Porsche and his Love of Racing
