Chase, Hello and welcome. As someone from the millennial generation we don't have elderly mechanics, we just have very experienced mechanics, I look forward to the creation of the Instagram account. Perhaps it will be up and running for the 60 4 60 PCA celebration in French Lick? I too feel very lucky I grew up around these cars my entire life, my father bought his 356 back in 1988. My sister and I were small enough to ride in the backseat! I was lucky enough to secure a '65 C coupe back in 2009 before the market got too crazy, I doubt I could buy one at today's market prices. That is obviously the trouble for my generation, currently the barrier to entry is very high.chase robinett wrote:Hi everyone!
Thank you for the suggestions about the Instagram account - I think it is a wonderful idea and definetly an unexplored resource for the Registry. I'll get to work setting that up, and update everyone when it is up and running.
Just a little bit about me (for you, Mark, and anyone else that is interested!): I am a college kid attending Boston College, but I call the Seattle area home. Being an average 20-year-old, I have tremendous experience with the current popular forms of social media. With regards to cars, my dad instilled an interest in classic cars in me from a young age, but I developed an affinity for 356s while helping out an elderly Porsche mechanic a few years back. He ended up letting me purchase his '63 B coupe, and my dad and I have been working on restoring it ever since. The Registry has been a tremendous resource for me and is filled with great guys - much like everyone in the greater Porsche community - and I look forward to helping serve in any way that I can!
If you have any suggestions or videos you'd like posted to the YouTube account, my Registry email is posted above. Thanks again for the input everyone! I look forward to helping out in this new role.
Good Luck in the new role!
