Well I'm back........kind of

You guys remember me posting a pic of a Targa 911 a couple of years ago? I stopped in my friends lot and it was back. Well, the guy that bought it only put 3,000 miles on it. Now it has 31,000 miles and happens to be mine!! I bought it today, and love it. I came back here bacuse of all the friends I have made over the years.


Here it is......

Dear OB that is a beautiful machine, I love guards red polished up expect on any highway anywhere in the world where the coined phrase "arrest me red" comes to life...

Very sweet ride, congrats, its interesting how similar the dash looks to the Boxter. So I have to ask the question I usually ask and that is how is the ride compared to the Boxster?

The Vette is for sale on consignment. The ride is surprisingly smooth even with the low profile tires and lowered stance. It very similar to the Boxster, feels bigger and softer. I don't know if that makes any sense. Porsche around here is like seeing an alien, Its been fun so far.

I cant believe I'm faced with a super charger dilemma already.

Welcome back Ohio. Nice ride indeed. I am sure the Vette was fun but there is nothing quite like a Porsche. I see you got this one in the fast color .

The Vette is nice, but there is nothing like the feeling of a Porsche. I'm already thinking about RMS. That weighed heavy on my mind with the Boxster too.

I need to keep my need for speed in check. Keep telling myself, just drive the car, just enjoy it. Then I look at this sitting in my basement.......

If you're like me, that thing will sing to you like the Sirens to Ulysses until you sell it to someone else.

I have always loved the Targas like yours, very nice. I honestly thought the black car in your sig was a Trans Am before I read the Vette comment lol.

You bought another RMS leaking, IMS breaking, D-chunk cracking, wheel bearing wearing Porsche, I'd say you've already chewed through the ropes and jumped in with both feet.
