|It all started in 1950, when Otto’s Dad was a Col. in the Army Air Corps, stationed in Germany. While traveling through Austria one spring weekend, three little silver sportscars passed him by. Otto’s dad followed them to Gumund, where the cars were being assembled. He fell in love with the cars immediately and ordered one for himself. Three weeks later, they delivered a 356 Coupe to our house in Germany. That started a life-time love of Porsche.||
Otto in the Corps ’66
|There has been a Porsche in our driveway ever since.There have been Speedsters, Carrerra Speedsters, Carrerra Cab, Roadsters, RSK, 550RS, 904, 906, 911′s, 914′s, 914/6′s, 912′s, and the list goes on of Porsche’s owened by Otto and his dad.|
Otto and some of the Porsche family
|Dad raced in the late 50′s and the early 60′s, and Otto started racing in the late 60′s when he got out of the Marine Corps. Otto couldn’t afford to have anybody fix his cars, so he learned how to work on them himself.
Since 1973 he’s had a shop on the West-Side of L.A. working on and racing some of the fastest cars to hit the asphalt.
