|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 quite into adulthood due to a
birth defect. Franz was sweet and
playful, and very good looking!
This 1982 Porsche 924 Turbo is
one of less than 900 produced in
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
The 1978 911 SC named in her
honor is also lovable, with its
strong engine, balanced chassis,
and beautiful, rich Peru Red paint.
Red Dobermann and
2003 996 Carrera
Emma was a spirited Red Doberman.
There were several squirrels in the back
yard that she used to chase. She was
fast and agile. 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 was always a blast
to be around. She has 70,000 miles
and just keeps asking for more fun!
Gray Tabby and
2004 Cayenne S
Named after a pet long ago,
Sammy the Cayenne was
purchased with 50,000 miles in
spring 2008. After 170,000 miles
(48,000 pulling a trailer), Sammy
is still smooth, solid, dependable
Russian Blue and
Butch, while not pure Russian Blue,
had all the characteristics of that
breed - strength, focus, keen
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 and has
many victories and track records.
and 1973 911 RS
Purdie ruled the house, and
combined typical Siamese
nuttiness and energy with a Latin
Purdie the car is a stunning and
fast 911 RS clone with a strong
engine, solid chassis, and beautiful
dark orange paint finish.
Orange Tabby and
2006 997 Carrera S
Tango, the "Tangerine" cat was an
avid and successful hunter.
Tango the car is a custom-color
2006 Carrera S which has won
several significant awards in
Concours. Tango has also
collected trophies in 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!
Scottish Fold and
1999 996 Carrera
"Little", the transient Scottish Fold who
adopted Don and introduced him to the
wonders of a cat's world. Here gazing
at the spot where the future "Little" is
now stationed. Rest well, old friend!
"Little", the 1999 Carrera adopted Don
in January 2011. Here after a bit of a
Dirt-Bath at Buttonwillow, where he and
Don earned the "John Deere" award.
