A Tribute to Graham Becket
Before we became a region of PCA, Porsche owners in Alaska in the 1960’s formed the Porsche Club of Alaska. One of those members was Graham Becket. In late 1970, through a committee that was formed by the members of the Alaska club headed by Graham, they applied to PCA to become a fully chartered member of PCA which was signed in January of 1971. Graham was instrumental in the administrative work of being granted as a charter region of PCA, and the region owes him our deepest gratitude for making it happen. Graham was our last surviving charter member until his passing in late 2023. He served in every capacity for the club and was a trusted advisor through those years. Graham always said, “Once a Porsche club member, always a Porsche club member.” His experience and friendship will be missed by all who knew him.
Todd Held President
Todd Started his adult life in the US Army as an aircraft mechanic. A vocation he continued until entering into real estate at age 31. Having grown up around British sports cars, he restored a few MGB’s. One year, he decided to buy his wife a little red sports car for Mother’s Day. A 1988 Porsche 944. Having sold all his British projects, he surmised that the family should have a second Porsche. Seeing an ad for a 356, he thought, “A German version of an MGB”. Upon viewing the car, he made an offer and the seller laughed. He was only off by $40,000. The seller did have a 1982 Targa SC that was in Todd’s budget. So the next day his love affair with 911’s began. Since then, he has owned a second ’82 Targa, a 2005 Cayenne Turbo, a 1998 Boxster, and currently owns a 2001 996 C4, 1989 928 S4, and a 2010 Cayenne S. The club is like a family to him and has been the source of many great friendships. His other hobbies are flying and boating.
More to come...
Ann Jasper Secretary
My introduction to Porsche was watching my husband Tim go through the process of designing & having our 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo built. We took delivery at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta on February 10, 2021! Our passion for long road trips, discovering new places, new friends & living the dream as part of the Porsche world. Being a member of our PCA Alaska Region and now serving on the board allows me to give back to our community.
Cody Holland Treasurer
Codys love for cars began early like many others, from hotwheels to racing games growing up there were always cars involved in one way or another, including his first two cars that had several "improvements" made while they were exposed to him. Cody went to technical school and was a technician at BMW prior to his most recent position at our local Porsche/Audi/VW dealership where he has been almost ten years, Cody got his first Porsche, a 2007 Cayman S in October 2021 which was an immediate bond and has been the autocross race car ever since, getting 1st place overall for his rookie season in the respective race class. Since then, two more cars have been added to the garage, a 1971 911S Targa project, and a 1975 911S coupe. Alongside autocross Cody enjoys anything out doors and spends as much time outside as possible hiking, biking, wrenching, and whatever other adventure presents itself!
Jim McNeff "McNurd"
Jim always had a spot in his heart for Porsche’s at an early age, dreamed of owning a Porsche for any years. After moving to Alaska in 1989, Jim bought his first Porsche in 1995, a 1973 914 1.7lt and became a member soon after that and has been an active member ever since, serving in every spot on the board and as numerous chairs for the club. “SNUFFY” his 914 has seen much of the Alaskan roads in many club and non-club events. (read about SNUFFY in My Porsche Story in our web site) After retiring from the military in 1999, SNUFFY got some TLC in keeping up with the roads of Alaska. In 2014, he decided that SNUFFY needed a big brother in the garage and bought a 1988 944 Turbo S, “SCRAT” Two Porsche’s are better than one as his late wife, Patti said one day. Now that he has retired from State of Alaska employment, it is time for SCRAT to get some TLC. Jim’s other interests are boating, fishing, snowmobiling, and turning a wrench or two on the fleet of cars and snowmobiles. Dilly Dilly.
James has always had a passion for the Porsche 911. In high school he saved up enough money to buy his first car and it was about as far away from and Porsche as you could get, It was German though. It was a 1965 Beetle. He worked on it and made it kind of fast but it was totaled and then came the Karman Giha which now hosted the engine he build for the bug! But the Porsche 911 was what he thought about the most. With marriage and raising a family, the Karman Giha became a past memory. In 2010 he bought a Subaru WRX and with it came with an SCCA membership! What better to use a WRX for? Auto Cross. He started racing with the AKPCA and the temptation was too great. He purchased a 996 C4 Cab on the internet! His wife Tracy and him flew from Alaska to Phoenix and drove the car up the pacific highway from Lower Cali to Washington. He started driving it to the Porsche Parade and loves to driving a Porsche on the ALCAN! Currently Past President of the Alaska Region he served as the VP and Safety Chair for the club, and manages the timing for all of the PCA Auto crosses. Currently he has a 1974 914, 1982 911 SC Targa and a 2006 911 C4S. Tracy also got the Porsche bug and purchased a 2006 Cayenne S Titanium edition and a 2020 Porsche Macan S.
