Bye Bye Boxster...

WELL that was short lived, but it was a fun summer driving My 2000 Boxster everyday.

Had to sell her to get something a little more practical. Have a family and the 2 seater didnt really do the trick on fitting car seats

I had a winter car, but I decided to trade in the Porsche and sell the winter car and get something AWD.

I actually bought my FIRST Japanese car. I have owned about 20 German/Euro cars and never something from Japan... it was a difficult decision, but I ended up going with a beautiful Acura RDX Turbo SUV. Its gorgeous. Voice activated, Nav, Backup Cam, BT, loaded from the wheels to the moonroof. I like it so far... and it sadly gets better MPG than the porsche.

Ill be back here, Ill pick up another one, possibly next summer LOL

Thanks for everyones help and expertise when I needed it here.

"Better to have loved & lost than to never have loved at all"

Nice choice on the temporary replacement.

I thought that was " Better to have loved a short girl than to have never have loved a tall."

The hell with the kids, keep the car. You should have gone for a C4S then...that's a 4 seater.

Sorry to see her go, I remember when you got her. Good luck with the family and the Acura, nice cars, I had a TSX.

I sold the Whip today (Benz E350). Was the nicest, cleanest car out there, they guy had a big grin as he headed back to Greenville SC.
