Florida Owners Group
The Porsche 356 Florida Owners Group (FOG) had its start in March of 1993 when the founders got tired of waiting for someone else to start a club. The inaugural meeting at the Collier Automotive Museum in Naples drew about thirty-five 356s and sentiment for forming the club was unanimous. The first President was Rich Williams, with Mark Peebles as Vice-President and Mike McNabb as Secretary-Treasurer. Click here to see the first flyer for the organizational meeting.
Florida is a large state with a widely-scattered population of people and 356s. It was realized from the outset that a newsletter was vital to maintaining communication among members, and Thom Kyle volunteered to publish FOGLight which continues to this day.Club enthusiasm ran high from the start, and within three years FOG hosted the East Coast Holiday – Gatorfest ’96 – at Cypress Gardens. Three years later FOG hosted another East Coast Holiday at St. Augustine.Our club has an annual Gathering of the Faithful meeting held in January in various locations around the state. We also have regional groups that meet on a monthly basis.
Our newsletter FOGLight is published six times a year in both digital and hard copy formats. We are now over 240 members strong residing all over the U.S. and invite all 356 enthusiasts to join our club. Go to the Membership tab to learn how.
