Meeting My Porsche Artist Hero

When i was 12 years old my dad brought home a book for me called "Perpetuating Porsche Paranoia." It was filled with wonderful illustrations by the author Richard Pietruska. I soon took to drawing the images myself, and must have drawn each one 10 times. I had the fortunate opportunity to meet Mr. Pietruska last year and it was a wonderful experience. After all these years i still had my book and a framed copy of a drawing i did, he was all to happy to sign both for me. His book was absolutely the genesis of my love for Porsche cars and all cars for that matter. I am now in the process of trying to do what i love for a living in the aftermarket suspension parts industry.  The best part of meeting Mr Pietruska you may ask? We both drive seal grey 2003 Porsche carreras! I was able to snap some photos of our meeting in Los Angeles last November. If you ever have the chance to meet a childhood hero or someone who influenced your life in any way, take the time, the trip, the effort to do it, it was awesome.
