At a very young age. First few years of my life, Father had Datsun 240Z, I was four and cried when he sold it. Then he got a 260Z. I was heavily into cars at 4 to 5 years old. At 6 I got a P4 model car. By 1978 my Father made more money. Started with a Porsche 911SC, by 1980 it was a 930. Same period my mother started driving Jaguars. Vancouver's Porsche dealer also sold Jaguars and Aston Martins. So at first my interest was in these cars and the Datsun Z. Then in 1980 Magnum came out. By 1982 and 10 years old, I knew most of the Ferrari models from magazines. Around 1983 a friends father bought a Countach, also became fascinated by Lamborghini. I grew up in a middle class area. In elementary school six of my classmates fathers are dentists! My father was a stock broker and head of what they now call corporate finance at the biggest brokerage firm in Vancouver. So growing up I knew brokers, securities lawyers, etc. well off clients, etc. people with everything from the run of the mill Mercedes SL, to Ferraris, Porsches and Rolls Royce's. Anyway, I knew and liked the Daytona before Miami Vice, and knew the Testarossa long before it was on the show. In general I'm a European car nut. 1985 my Dad decided he was tired of shifting and traded his 930 on a new 1985 928S, this led to an S4 in 87. My family has also owned Mercedes and a couple BMW's over the years. I tried talking my Dad into a 308 in 1985 before he bought the 928. We ended up renting one in Maui during spring break. He wasn't impressed. Now in my 40's, semi retired. I was heavily into boats. But now they bore me. So getting back into cars.
