I enjoyed it. A good get together for camaro owners. The BBQ is nice too. We didn't stay too long but last year is really when I got to meet everyone here.

Worth doing once I think.

Like Brendan said, it was nice last year because everyone was able to "put a face to the name." It was supposedly a bit smaller than what it usually is due to the new dealership construction (it was down the street at BWW instead). I'd surmise this year will be quite large since there is such a large contingent of people coming from out of town. Don't forget the Friday "pre-show" at Pittsburgh Mills. To be honest, it might be better than Saturday's show considering the weather.

Didn't you get the escalade for the winter? You know it comes every year, right?

Used Porsche? Wow....I'd take a read about the long-term reliability before I looked at a Porsche. Cool car I suppose, if a name is all you're after. If that the body type you want, you'd be better served with a Audi Q7, which is the SAME car, and it will be cheaper, or you could get the VW Touraeg, which is SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper new, which again, is the exact SAME car. All will have equally low reliability.

A co-worker of mine just bought a used 911 and hates it because everything is letting go, at 30K miles....

Additionally, the maintenance is outrageous $$ wise.

Yes I know the maintenance is expensive.. I dont know why you assume that I dont research about cars before buying them... as long as you maintain it properly in the 1st place its not that bad...
Wife wants it.. I dont mind paying some extra buck for the brand name and extra luxury... Like I said we will test drive a few later on and see if its worth it or not and decide what to get.. might get a newer model escalade again..

Point 1. Stop being a nerd.
Point 2. VWs are ****ing gay.

Point 2. Debatable...because a Porsche is a VW...same assembly lines, same bodies, a Porsche is just as much VW as a Cadillac is a Chevy. Paying for a name.
Point 3. Can do much better for similar or less money.

The Porsche and vw are the same chassis but they are more than just badge engineering like gm does.

We are talking about the Volkswagen Touareg which giver not more than 20-22 on the high way which is probably 2-3 mpg less than the porsche cayenne.
I can live with it.. got used to it with the escalade which is even less.

Well sure it isn't. You're paying double for it.
