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!
