Welcome to the new design of PCA UCR. It's still in progress so please be patient with any errors and omissions!

Geoff Thrasher’s 1997 911

I’VE ALWAYS LOVED CARS, and have had a very eclectic collection over the years from a 396 Chevelle to a 440 GTX, then three Corvettes (1958, 1967, 1971) then a Mercedes 450 SL, etc., in total over 30 cars.

About 10 years ago I decided it was time for a sports car again and went to see a Triumph TR6 at a used car lot in Toronto. It was a little rougher than the pictures online, but something they did have was a 2003 Guards Red 911 cabriolet that looked great. I had never considered a Porsche, but after one drive I had to have it.

I joined the PCA and took advantage of all it had to offer from monthly socials to concours, DE days at Mosport, and autocross events. The 996 was wonderful, but I wanted to get an air-cooled car to feel what the original design idea was. I eventually found my 1997 993 at Pfaff and it has been everything I hoped for and more, a truly analog and exhilarating car to drive. </>
