The President and His Porsche
Owner and Photographer: Stefaan de Vos
Year, Make, and Model: 1980 Porsche 911 SC 3.0L
Location: Denderhoutem, Belgium
I’ve always been interested in cars, my first classic car was a 1972 VW Beetle, my second a 1967 Chevrolet Bel Air, and this is my third one now. I sold my ‘67 Chevy, made a bit of profit and got the opportunity to buy this Porsche at a very good price.
As soon as I got my hands on it I was lost; I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. I had to have this Porsche 911. I just loved the design, the power, and smooth handling. The car is also in very good condition. I bought it two years ago after searching for a couple of years. Since the car is original I’m not planning on adding anything other than original parts.
I’m the president of a local classic car club, called Retro Car Club and here where I live, in the Belgian countryside, roads are fine but flat. That’s why we often go out with others to drive the Ardennes Forest, where there are some beautiful shady, winding roads.
