Good to see some new names. There are several active members in the Dallas area and Jeph tried to arrange a meet in Uptown last month. Unfortunately it wasn't a good weekend for most so we called it off. Hope to see everyone there whenever we reschedule.

Nice shots. Beltline bars in Addison is the place to be, was just at Duke's last night. Here is one of my car by my office building at the corner of Preston/Frankford.

Did you guys just all come out of the woodwork or what? Way to represent...
Now we need to do a Dallas meet soon.

Since everyone else is bragging about Las Colinas, let me just contribute that I drive
THROUGH there every day (though rarely in Foxy Boxy).

haha i just bought mine about 3 weeks ago... i've always been VERY involved in the local car scene in whatever make/model groups i can find... previously local bmw group (still hang w/ some great friends from there regularly)... before that the LS1 groups... i post a LOT on various forums, etc... and what better thing to do than to hang out, talk about our cars, mods, and go have grub or drinks as a group especially with the great weather!

i've also done professional car detailing for awhile so getting to touch the sexy curves of any nice car keeps me involved more too hehehe... that and i enjoy finding new places to take pics and improve my photography skills (i keep trying to get the lady to let me get a DSLR)

What a turn out, in just a few hours! I guess if we are not crusing or hanging out, we are reading the forums.

Cory, I live in Carrollton, and have seen your Box around, that is one sweet color, and the black rims finish it nice.

Looking out the office window now in Los Colinas.......... Looks like a top down day to me.

Same here, S54 are nice but they are way over price. I am looking for a weekend car and the Boxster is it, just need to find one that's right for me....

Lived in Irving when I first moved here from New Orleans/Baton Rouge. Then moved to East Dallas and now reside in Addison. You can't miss my Boxster. Although I need to take some new pictures soon because I now have the 997, GT-3 front end. Looks bad ass! I'm just waiting for new clear side markers before I take pictures. The stock 986 ones do not fit the new bumper.
