My son surprised me today

My 14 year old son that is more of a Porsche fanatic than I or maybe even most on the forum called me into his room today to surprise me with an article he submitted on my 930. I sold my motorcycle to buy my 930 so I could share the experience with my sons (the wife would not let them near the bike) as you can see by the article it was the right move. This car brought us closer together and believe it or not my teenage son actually enjoys spending time with dad and his Porsche. Here is a link to the article. The pics with all of the other Porsches was from last years Hawks Nest run.

Awesome! I am so jealous.

Nice move buying the car without letting him know.
