Another Porsche Dream Realized!

I love stories like this. Partly because they hit so close to home and I know what’s it like to realize a nearly lifelong dream of owning a Porsche.

Erik, who won our little On The Job Gift Pack Giveaway, emailed me some great news last week. Here’s what he had to say:

Just a small note…I’ve been a subscriber to your site for quite some time. I follow it and many other Porsche-related blogs & sites on the Interwebs. I’ve been a long-time subscriber to every Porsche-specific magazine, and an avid reader of many Porsche related books. I’ve even become knowledgeable enough about 911’s to help an acquaintance or two buy their own. I’ve drawn pictures of Porsche’s since I was a small boy which prompted an ongoing correspondence in the 80’s with Tony Lapine, the chief designer at Weissach at the time.

But, I’ve never owned a Porsche… until last Saturday! The stars between Stuttgart and myself finally aligned. A Polar Silver 1996 911 Carerra 2 sits in my garage now. 44K miles and it’s 100% stock. It’s perfect… and it’s mine. Now I know how you came up with the name for your website.

I’ve attached a picture, but it’s not a very good shot since the car has had very little time to sit still…I’m guessing the On The Job gift pack will come in handy as I get some grease on my hands learning the nuances of my first Porsche.

The picture above is Erik’s car.

Thanks Erik!
