PCA member since: 1990

Current Porsches:
1973 911T Targa – Kelly Green 3.4l turbocharged autocross car
1980 911SC Coupe – Oak Green 

Why these cars?
I worked for a Porsche dealership in upstate NY from 1970 to 1978 where the romance began.  I began as a mechanic, graduated to service writer and was promoted to service manager.  As a service manager I was given a 911 to drive, in this case a 1976 Sportomatic 911T Targa, gold with hounds tooth interior. (IIRC)
After leaving NY for work in KY I was without a Porsche until I received one for my 40th birthday. (the 1980 911SC)

In 1996 I found the 1973 911T Targa in the back of garage on the east side of Owensboro.  After a few years of driving it on the street I began autocrossing it.  Now, 20 years later it is an e85 drinking turbo-charged monster.  It rides on four 335ZR35/17 tires which put over 4 feet of rubber on the ground.  Although it is 1970’s technology I can hold my own against current cars in my class.
