Long-time Porsche pusher Howard "Shoe" Shoemaker passed Jan 28 2017 at 85. I first met Shoe in 1970 shortly after VietNam. Buddy in Grand Island,NE bought a new 911 and joined the Great Plains Region of PCA. He asked me along to go to Omaha for one of the monthly dinner meetings. I met Shoe there, at the Bohemian Cafe. Here`s a couple momentos from Shoe. I had given him a ride in my Carrera GT Speedster back in the early 90s, had run into him at a party. Soon after that ride, he sent me the "GT Toilet" cartoon....as I call it. In that note, I think he was referring to Jim Perrin. Last time I saw him was in Omaha in 2012, he was checkin out my 58.......RIP Shoe

Other Shoe stuff ended up in Christo's over the years. Also, I vaguely remember a horizontal poster by Shoe raffled at Parades. He was certainly part of Porsche Lore over the years. RIP.

RIP Howard.

Shoe designed the club badge and had them made in Germany. Authentic fired enamel cloisonne, solid brass. A beautiful piece of Shoe sculpture!
