Philip Richter’s Turtle Garage gets its name from the successful Turtle Bayou oil/gas well Philip invested in with a friend. Returns on the risk enabled him to build his dream garage and begin his car collection.
Car-loving friends joined Philip at the family’s Coker Farm in Bedford, N.Y. in October. The event raised money for the Pray Family Foundation. Philip says, “The Turtle Garage is dedicated to my love of excessive personal transportation. I have enjoyed all things motorized for as long as I can remember, from riding and tinkering with my first Honda 50 at age 7, to restoring pre-war BMW motorcycles today. I don’t always go for the most powerful or expensive vehicle. I like cars and motorcycles with interesting stories—about their design, production, ownership, or place in history.”
Philip is president and co-founder of New York-based Hollow Brook Wealth Management. He serves as treasurer of the United States Equestrian Team Foundation, chairman of the Lake Placid Horse Show, and is on the board of directors of the Hampton Classic Horse Show and the United States Equestrian Federation. He is an amateur equestrian show jumper and has successfully campaigned his horses on the “A” circuit for over three decades.
