Email This Page to a FriendPreview: Urban Outlaw and Porsche Passion
March 4, 2013
Classic boats have been my passion for as long as I can remember. Sketching boats instead of listening to teachers kept me off the honor role, and owning a steady stream of them since then has kept us fired up and busy. Anne and I are still as boat-crazed as ever, but there’s also room for classic cars like Porsche 911s.
KERMIT is my 1970 Targa’s name, and besides the color, you have only to look at this car’s face to understand why. I bought KERMIT for it’s style and simplicity—and because it’s so much fun to drive, even at 50 or 60, which is where I am most of the time. We don’t race.
Just down the streetis Shawn McKay’s Affordable Performance Motors—a lucky break, because Shawn is an exceptional mechanic who specializes in Porsches. (His “family car” is a bright red 911 coupe.)
