Can you have an automotive do-over?
As a teenager walking into my local Porsche dealer in the late 1980s, I quickly realized I was no Gordon Gecko or Sam Walton. Wearing my OP shorts, flip flops, and Maui & Sons tank top the condescending dealer associate quickly came to the same conclusion. The Porsches on display did sparkle like rubies on the polished floor.
The thought of just sitting in one of the display cars let alone driving one seemed as impossible as going to a school dance with Brooke Shields. Regardless, captain slick-sales-dude had to state the obvious as he squelched my dream sequence.
Over thirty years later, I’m reliving my adolescent dream. No more vroom sounds or pretend driving.” I have my own ‘80s Porsche dealership!
I’m sitting in each car, playing with the buttons, starting them, and moving them into position for photographs. No one to say, “no” or “don’t touch.” As I take each out for a light test drive, there’s still that slight ping of teen guilt like I’m doing something wrong.
When AutoKennel first opened and it was stuffed with ‘80s Porsches, my mom visited our showroom and said, “What would your high school self say if they knew this was your future?” Without pause, I retorted, “hurry up!”
