The Parade hotel in West Baden, IN is built around a large circular atrium. Like the Greenbrier in WV, it advertized the medicinal benefits of its mineral springs to attract wealthy customers in the 19th century.   This trolley runs between the West Baden Springs and French Lick hotels.

The West Baden Springs hotel gardens are spectacular, but flooding by tropical storm Bill forced the concours to move indoors at French Lick. This walkway is about two feet under water. The larger Parade hotel at French Lick

The Parade concours was held in the French Lick hotel parking garage. Here are two golden 930s. Porsche displayed the new Club Coupe. Only 60 exist, for 60 years of PCA. "Sherry's Choice" at the concours

Hank Weil was in charge of the Historic display this year. It included this "O WOW" 930, a rare 1992 381 HP "leichtbau" 964 Turbo S, a shimmering "Pearl White Metallic" 993 Turbo, and the only copy of the unique 993 Speedster given to Butzi Porsche.

From the "60 4 60" exhibit of 60 cars from the 60 years of PCA, a 959, a GT1, a 917, and a 1952 America Roadster, Porsche's first purpose-built race car

356s representing 1956 ("radium green"), 1959 ("glacier white"), and 1948. This 1948 Gmünd Coupe was the ninth built and the oldest known example built entirely by Porsche.

Hank & Jolly Weil's 1994 911 Speedster won the concours class PP05F for 964/993 with an outstanding 298.9 of 300 possible points. Hank's cleaning swab got a lot of use. Hank & Jolly at the awards banquet
