I was fortunate to finally purchase my first Porsche for my 45th birthday. Having first found a beautiful 83 SC in Vermont that caught my eye, I ended up with an 84 Carerra coupe in Guards Red. I also had a Lexus SC 300 as a daily driver, but after a while of driving the Porsche, it was clear that I could not, not, drive the Porsche everyday. Thus the Lexus left my stable and the Carerra became my daily drive. After a while, I began to notice how bright this color was and how OBVIOUS it was on the street. Even with the Val 1 protecting me, I needed tohave a more subdued color. Thus I obtained my second Porsche, transporting it from Miami to Northern CA This is an 88 Carerra coupe in gray-green or Granite metallic. This is a very elegant color. After about a year, and shortly after the death of both of my parents, I became the patriarch of my family. I decided that it was time for more safety items such as ABS and airbags, and thus a 95 993 coupe has become my daily drive.
Each of the Porsches has their own unique characteristics and all have been fun to have owned and driven. I only wish I could have kept them all. I have learned a ton about Porsches, and I can only say that a Porsche will always be in my life. The PCA club events have been fun and it is great to meet the people who enjoy these cars as much as I have.
