The Porsche 356 Registry has around 7,000 members worldwide.
We are licensed as an Official Porsche Club by Porsche AG in the USA, and operate as an "umbrella" club for many smaller 356 organizations in North America.
The 356 Registry trustees are elected to three year terms by a vote of the membership. This vote happens annually in November and December. Any member in good standing can nominate someone as a candidate for a trustee position. The timing and mechanism of the trustee election is called out in the club By-Laws.
No, the 356 Registry does not have any employees. There are essentially three service contracts which the club manages. These are publishing, membership management and Goodie Store management. These contracts are renewed for a period of one to three years and are open to bids.
Usually. Member numbers are kept for up to two years after expiration. Contact membership to see if it is possible to assign your old number.
Membership costs per year are: $45.00 in the USA, $55.00 USD in Canada and $65.00 USD Internationally. This includes 6 issues per year of our Club Magazine, full access to all features on our website and the right to register to attend Club Holidays and other Registry Events.
Commercial display advertisers of parts, services and 356 dealers are welcome. We do not accept advertising for non-Porsche related items. Advertising space is limited and not all ad size positions are available. Contact the publishing office at 651-433-0165 or email Mary Skamser at: email@example.com. Click HERE for a rate card and schedule.
If you would like to get involved in hosting a Holiday, contact any trustee. A Holiday organizer is available, giving step-by-step instructions and advice for laying the groundwork. There are many former Holiday organizers who are available to give advice and help create a proposal. A trustee will be assigned to help you organize your Holiday. See the organizer under News and Events>Organizing A Holiday.
Fix site display problems with Compatibility View
Sometimes websites don't look like you expect them to–images might not appear, menus might be out of place, and text could be jumbled together. This might be caused by a compatibility problem between Internet Explorer and the site you're on. Sometimes this can be fixed by adding the site to your Compatibility View list.
To add a site to the Compatibility View list
Once you turn on Compatibility View, Internet Explorer will automatically show that site in Compatibility View each time you visit. You can turn it off by removing it from your compatibility list.
Internet Explorer 9 has known issues especially with Windows 7, this is from Microsoft.

Webpages may not display correctly when you use Windows Internet Explorer 9. When this display problem occurs, you may experience the following symptoms:
·Images are less sharp.
·Webpages take longer to be displayed.
·Some webpages that are optimized for the HTML5 standard are displayed incorrectly or are not displayed at all.
This display problem may occur because your current video card or video driver does not support Direct2D.
To work around this display problem, use software rendering instead of graphics processing unit (GPU) rendering to view the webpage.
To have us enable software rendering for you, go to the "Fix it for me" section. If you prefer to fix this problem yourself, go to the "Let me fix it myself" section.

No they cannot.
356 Talk Forum Rules
Welcome to the 356 Registry Forums. The following rules are in place for the benefit of all. We take the position that you have read and understood all of them before you post to our site. The Moderators have final say on suitability of any user postings or “gray areas”. We reserve the right to delete or move incorrectly posted, unclear, confusing and flame type posts without notice. The right to edit or refuse publication of any post is also reserved; the 356 Registry is not responsible for errors, omissions or misrepresentation. Thank You.
Please welcome new comers to the 356 community and correct mistakes in a courteous manner. Try to help others. A forum is a community that works best when people share information about the cars and their experiences with them in a helpful and civil manner.
Please respect other people's time and bandwidth. Keep posts relevant; and always stay on topic.
When starting a thread please use a clear subject line; subjects like "LOL" or "Look at This!" are unacceptable. If you want eyeballs on your subject then you must carefully craft the subject header.
Provide enough details or pictures in your question so that people can help you. Think before you type; remember you are dealing with real people and you are not anonymous. Members must use their real names in their profile.
Use the search button at the top of the page before posting a new topic; your question may have been asked and discussed often previously. Also check the sticky items posted for frequent topics such as best tire, best carburetor and such.
Please take administrator and moderator warnings seriously. We reserve the right to edit and/or delete your posts and/or ban you from this forum without prior warning.
Unacceptable Use of the Forums
Using the Forums for personal conversation or argument; use the "email" button that is shown with every post.
Posting abusive or intolerant posts to other site members on the forums, or through email or private messages.
Posting non-356 related posts except in the Off Topic Forum (that is what it is for: non-356 related topics).
Posting "for sale" or "wanted" ads in any 356Talk Forum. They are only allowed in the Classifieds area of the website (Classifieds menu at the top of every page).
Posting copyrighted images or material, including photographs, logos, text excerpts or other intellectual property without permission from the copyright holder.
Posting nudity, graphic images, or NSFW (Not Safe For Work) links. Also, personal attacks based on sexual preference, religion, nationality, race, differing points of view and the like. This also includes insulting other members in posts, your avatar, or signature (this includes using another member's picture as your avatar).
Posting abusive, inflammatory, or threatening messages.Using obscene, antagonistic, or abusive language or images in posts, avatars, usernames, or signatures, and no animated avatars or graphics are allowed.
Discussing politics or making political statements
Posting links to online ads unless you have a legitimate question on the item or it is to highlight something that is misrepresented, involves possible fraud, or repro parts or cars that are listed as real.
Posting someone else’s full address or phone number or email without their permission. Posting email addresses in response to someone asking for contact information for a member. Automated "spambots" scour the web for addresses and will pick them up and use them to spam that person. Instead, use the "email" button associated with every post to contact the poster directly.
Posting the same message in two or more Forums.
Posting complaints about a forum or moderator activity, a club officer or a club issue is to be handled by private email. Moderators and Club officers are easily found in both the magazine and in contacts. Matters of policy or inquiries on finances or trustee activity should be addressed to the club president. As a general policy, we discuss related topics only by email, not publicly on 356Talk. We respect your privacy: please respect ours.
Abusing the quote button; include only as much as is necessary for context. This includes pictures.
Using excessive punctuation, smilies, annoying or unreadable text colors, or bold text.
your post in ALL CAPS or use repetitive punctuation like "!!!@@ LOOK @@!!!" or !!!WOW!!! in the subject line of your post. Typing your post in ALL CAPS is interpreted by many as "yelling".
We have been asked to clarify what this board considers a flame. Rather than making up our own new definition, the definition that has been on our off topic forum for a long time was added here. So, not sure how the moderators evaluate what a "flame" is on this site? From Wikipedia:
Flaming is the hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users. Flaming usually occurs in the social context of a discussion board, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) or even through e-mail. An Internet user typically generates a flame response to other posts or users posting on a site, and such a response is usually not constructive, does not clarify a discussion, and does not persuade others. Sometimes, flamers attempt to assert their authority, or establish a position of superiority over other users. Other times, a flamer is simply an individual who believes he or she carries the only valid opinion. This leads him or her to personally attack those who disagree. Occasionally, flamers wish to upset and offend other members of the forum, in which case they can be called "trolls". Most often however, flames are angry or insulting messages transmitted by people who have strong feelings about a subject.
Use the REPORT button
There is a report button "!" in the lower right corner of each post. If you see a post that violates the rules, please report it by clicking on that button "!".
Only the administrators can see reported posts and they really appreciate the help. There are hundreds of new posts each day and they can't see everything. They depend on everybody to keep these forums a useful resource for 356 Porsche enthusiasts, however please do not use the report button recreationally as we are all volunteers with limited time. (If there is no report button visible it means that post has already been reported.)
By using this forum you agree to hold 356Registry.org blameless and without responsibility for any trauma experienced here. The 356 Registry reserves the right to update these rules without notice. Thanks for visiting our website.

Yes, lots. If you see them, please let Eric Cherneff know. Include the nature of the error and the correction. If there is a car that is reported "stolen", and you tell us it is not stolen, and you are a different person from the person who reported it stolen, we might be asking a few more questions. If you tell us you don't own chassis number 11112, but you do own 111121, that will be an easy fix. This database belongs to the members of the Registry; please help to improve it.
