Porsches owned: 1
Current car: 2001 Base Boxster
I was stationed in Germany for three years during the late sixties. There was a Major who would drive his silver 911 on the flight line; block the wheels ( that was a reg); inspect his F4, then drive off before his flight time. This went on two or three times a week and I was very envious. I had a BMW, but it just was not the same. I also had a German friend who ran a car lot. He would let me drive anything on the lot; Porsche was the first pick. Drove 911’s, 914-6 and others. The hook was set. Now 40 years later I finally have a Porsche. Just a used ‘01 Boxster, but a Porsche none the less. Enjoying the hell out of it!
