I’m Larry Dukes.  I currently serve as Social Media Chair and Activities Chair.  I fell in love with Porsche at Sebring and Daytona in the late 1960’s and especially the early 1970’s.  My science teacher when I was a senior in HS bought a yellow 911 and I was hooked.  Always wanted a Porsche, but never got one even though I had a TR6, MGB, 280ZX and Supra Turbo.  In 2015 I had Gastric Sleeve surgery with the goal to lose 120 lbs (I weighed in at a hefty 312 pre-surgery).  I told my wife Shirley that when I reached that goal I was buying a Porsche!  As the weight was coming off, I was shopping for a 911 Cabriolet, but one day in November 2016 on the way to Lexington, we saw a Silver Boxster S and the next thing you know, it’s in my garage. Shirley calls it “The Silver Bullet!) I did lose the weight and its still off.   I joined the PCA in February of 2017 and have really enjoyed the drives, dinners, parties, but most of all, the people! What a great group of folks that are bonded by a single emotion, we love our Porsches!
