I’m a tall thin 70 year old beauty with a short fat bald husband. I’ve had a Miata for the past 18 years and motorcycles before that. So I figured it was time for me to buy a sedan and settle down, what I didn’t figure on was that while in search of a sedan my coming across a Boxster and falling in love. A Porsche of all things, people around here drive pickup trucks, LoL. I guess that the sedan will have to wait a few more years.

63, retired Industrial Arts Teacher. Owned my 03 S since 05 and have been interested in a Porsche ever since my Dads friend would leave his red 58 Speedster at our house during business trips. I would play in it going through the gears pretending to drive. What a great car, glad I didn't hurt it.

45, computer engineer, working in IT and Finance for Toyota Finance in Norway.

4 kids (2-18 yo), got a 7 seater Toyota Avensis Verso Diesel, and a Miata NA in addition to my 97 Boxster Tip.

The 986 is my Third Porsche, recently it replaced an '81 91 SC, which replaced an '86 944 NA.

Fun fact - both the Boxster and the Miata are black, has hardtops and tan interiors! My oldest son is the one using the Miata.

Age, car and career

Hello. I am 64 years old. I run 6 miles per day every day and I feel great. I've owned 4 356s and now own my 02 Triple Black Boxster - which is the finest car I have ever owned. I spent most of my career in the auto industry, but I am also an attorney. This is such a great forum. Thanks to you all.

My mother was a fifteen year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet.

My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon. Luge lessons. When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds - pretty standard, really. At the age of twelve, I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum. It's breathtaking. I suggest you try it.

At the age of 58, I bought my first Boxster. And, well, here I am.

I studied traditional Martial Arts (Moo Duk Kwan, Hapkido, and Iaido) from 1970 and taught for over 40 years, yours is the natural progression of Karate IMHO

You are welcome, citizen.

But, the real sacrifice was given by the people that never came back.
