Next time you're in the Porsche Museum, stop in and tell her I miss her...
Joe, Thank you for sharing such a great story and history of a very rare and cherished Porsche. There is always , I'm sure, a favorite car in most everyone's past history, but to do the research and document your cars history is very special.

I was also in the Air Force ( 1966-1970 ) and owned and drove a 1964 Porsche 356C for a couple of years while stationed at Vandenberg AFB near Santa Barbara, CA. I can only remember the good times I had while driving one of my favorite cars. I would still like to find an older Porsche and spend some time restoring and driving it.

You also live in an area that I have traveled to several times in the motorhome. I love that area of Colorado and plan on coming back soon.

All The Best,
Sammie

Rtoy 2 Car.

Rtoy 2 is a 1995 Porsche 968. One of 9, of about 450 imported in 1995. Last of the front engined cars. RTOY 1 was a 944 turbo, in which I fell down the long slippery slope to be a club racer. My all time favorite car. Got to drive in competition at Daytona, Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio, Summit Point, and Putnam Park. Life begins at 150 mph!

Here's my mildly customized '58 Ford sedan delivery, in happier times. I've had it since 1984, so it doesn't look this good any more. No funds available for restoration.

I always loved the Studebakers, especially the Hawks and the Avanti...way ahead of their time. I had a 1958 Starlight hardtop with the small 259 cid engine. It had been my parents car and handed down to me to drive to college.

Friends of my parents inherited an almost identical Starlight, drove it for many years. I always thought it was really cool.
I love these pictures and stories, keep 'em coming. I turned 16 in 1965, what a time for a car crazy kid. Never owned a fast car but sure enjoyed driving when I got the chance. Had a beautiful 71 Coronet 2 dr ht but got bored with the 318. Still kicking myself for letting that one go.

Hi Sammie,

Missed you by a year - I was at Vandenberg AFB from 71-74, and then had a '62 356B - fun, but needed lots of work.



Also managed to drive a 64 Cobra



And more recently, our Corvette



All the best...

Pagosajoe... x2 Sammies comments, great to hear stories about rare classics that were wonderfully maintained. Back before the investor market ruined it for the basic enthusiast I had a few interesting ones. Including a '72 Dino 246GT with 7K on the clock. I bought it from an ex-Detriot car exec who was friends with Enzo. He ordered the car directly from the factory and finished in Rosso Dino (orange/red) which was actually a Daytona color and never used on a Dino previously. Wonderful on the eyes and a joy to drive on the track and the street. I'm sure the 1500 was a blast to drive. I don't have any digital photos of the car so nothing to post.

Not for sale or to give away (lol), been in the family for over 50 years. Here's some history of the car for you.

The car was run in the c-gas roadster class at the salt flats of Bonneville and El Mirage from 1970-1979. Ran 149 and some change.

Was also in a few magazines through the years. Built the old school way and all original metal.

I have been made offers many times at car shows. One guy really wanted it bad in 2011 and even went to the bank and got a cashier check to prove he wanted it.

I won't tell you the amount but you can guess? Had a few zero on it.
