Happiness is buying a Boxster

So I spent Sunday morning flying from central Florida to Georgia to buy Travisn706ís white 2001 S. After an inspection and test drive the purchase was made. Travis - thanks so much for making this a great buying experience. This is my first Boxster and my first Porsche. The drive home was so nice. The only issue was my back not being shaped to fit comfortably in the seat on an 8 hour drive.

When I went to Afghanistan last year I didnít know for sure what car I wanted when I returned. I had always had the thought in the back of my mind that it would be cool to someday own a Porsche. I had been driving a í93 Miata for the past 6 years as my daily driver. I sold it when I deployed. Originally I had been thinking about a 4 seat convertible, maybe a BMW, Mustang or Volvo. Then I thought ďa 911 Cabrio has four seats, how much are they going for usedĒ? They were a little on the high $ide and the back seat wasnít really that useable. That got me to thinking; I really donít need a back seat. The kicker was talking to another civilian in my unit, Jim. Jimís got a í01 S and loves it. He said to consider one. I did and the rest, as they say, is history.

I want to thank the members of this forum for all your help. Iíve been lurking on here since November and have found the insightful comments and technical information invaluable in my decision to buy a Boxster. And finding my car on here was just icing on the cake.

Less than 48 hours in and I love this car. I look forward to hanging out on this forum and all of you helping me to keep this thing working probably.

p.s. The Atomicblue99 comes from my first new car, an í84 Dodge Omni GLH, nicknamed the Atomic Blueberry.
