It has been 20 years since we launched Axion Training Institute. Since then, we’ve had 12,000 wonderful scientists come through our classes. In celebration of that milestone, I’m giving away my car! It is a 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 (that is a 996 to you Porsche-philes). So why do such a nutty thing? I’m not sure, but these are the things that drove me to this decision:
- I really want to give back to my customers.
- I like cars. I like my customers. Seemed like a good fit!
- As most of you know, I have run to work almost every day for 20 years, so I don’t really use my car.
- That is about 20,000 miles, including 3 runs at -6F.
- The car was made in 2000, the same year we moved into our current facility
- I’ve been driving stick-shift Porsche 911’s for 30 years. I’m ready for a break!
- So far it has made everybody’s head spin!
There’s no gimmick. Come to our Pittcon booth and enter the drawing. One lucky winner will drive home in my Porsche…or if they are really boring…they can have $15,000 in cash!
