|Our Cars and the Pets they are named after
Bengal Kitten and
1982 924 Turbo
Franz was one of four kittens born to Trist
and Aries. Alas, he didn't live into adulthood
due to a birth defect. Franz was sweet and
playful, and very good looking!
This 1982 924 Turbo is one of less than 900
produced this year. Well preserved for a 30+
year-old Porsche, Franz is ready for many
more years of fun driving!
Miniature Poodle and
Tuffy was named that because his
mother kept putting him in the trash can,
but he survived. He was a great dog.
Tuffy the 924S carries on that legacy.
He has 230,000 mi. and still runs like a
car 1/3 that. He's a feisty one.
Basset Hound and
Daisey the Basset Hound was truly a part
of the family for 14 years. She was very
affectionate and lovable.
The 1978 911 SC named in her honor is
also lovable, with its strong engine,
balanced chassis, and beautiful, rich
Peru Red paint.
German Shepherd and
Ernie, a 125lb German Shepard was blessed with 4
sisters. Of the many fun activities with each of them,
he loved watching after his girls and his family best.
Ernie the car is a 2004 Arctic Silver GT3. Ernie
sports a completely stock engine and suspension
just proving how well made the Porsche is.
Gray Tabby and
2004 Cayenne S
Named after a pet long ago, Sammy the Cayenne now
has over 224,000 miles (85,000 pulling a trailer). Sammy
is still smooth, solid, dependable and fun.
Russian Blue and
Butch, while not pure Russian Blue, had all the
characteristics of that breed - strength, focus,
keen hunting skills.
The Porsche named Butch came from a long-time
POC/PCA friend in late 2007. With a slightly
modified 3.0L engine, light Turbo bodywork, and
well developed suspension, Butch is quick and
agile, with significant victories and track records.
Seal-Point Siamese and
1973 911 RS

Rally and driving event competition.
Sable Burmese and
Snickers lived for 21 years and was the
sweetest cat imaginable.
This 1979 911SC was purchased
shortly before Snickers' passing. Since
the cat was dearly missed, it made
sense to keep his memory alive with
this in-CAR-nation. Snickers the car is
indeed very fun to drive and sweet too,
and has logged dozens of victories!
Basenji Mix and
2013 Boxster S

Red Dobermann and
2003 996 Carrera
Emma was a spirited Red Doberman. Fast and
agile, she loved chasing squirrels. Being a Red, she
was more fragile than her Black conterparts so she
was required to sleep in the bed under the covers!
The 2003 Black Carrera is named after Emma
because she is always a blast to be around. With
70,000 miles, she just keeps asking for more fun!
