Porsche Dealer in San Antonio

#1 Post by Mark Sabbann » Wed Dec 05, 2018 12:47 pm

Does anyone know anything about a Porsche dealer from the '60's in San Antonio named 'P.C. Southwest'?
Or does anyone know of a person, L.D. Johnson out of Dallas? Probable age is mid-70 - 80s. Long shots I know but someone with this name was the first owner of my SC.

Some guys will remember Bill Jones. He was involved with Porsche Cars Southwest and one of their dealerships. His son, Bob runs Jones Autowerkes https://www.facebook.com/Jones-Autowerk ... 223115081/ Call Bob or Kathie there.

Thanks Brad, so was 'Porsche Cars Southwest' the Porsche distributor for multiple dealerships around Texas at that time?

Just saw Bob a few weeks ago, nice guy that Bob. He was kind enough to help me fill a truck.
