Steve Miller, Past President
As I rotate out as ORPCA President into the Past President position, I reflect on my association with Porsche, the automobile. I was in grade school in Moscow, Idaho during the late 50’s and early 60’s. I saw my first Porsche in 1959. I was 10 years old. It was cream-colored with a black convertible top. In hindsight, it was, probably, a convertible D! Very collectible today. The car was brand new and was owned by my friend’s uncle who was very successful dentist.
I never rode in the car but I got to sit in it. I said to myself, “I’m going to own a car like this one of these days.”
Over the years I have owned Fords, Chevys, and Volkswagens. I even owed a 1966 427 cubic inch Corvette roadster when I first got out of the Navy. With college, and raising two children who, also, needed to go to college, I didn’t buy my first Porsche until I was over 55 years old.
I treated myself to a 2001 Porsche Boxster S as reward for making Navy Captain, O-6, in the Navy Reserve! As many of you know, I have several models at this time and one is very similar to the 1959 model previously mentioned. I recently acquired a 1963 356B Cabriolet. A dream come true!
I love this organization. It provides great opportunities for sharing our passion for Porsche with like-minded individuals. Hope to see you at a club event in the very near future. Drive on!
