Boxster music

Finally, tomorrow I pick up my S. I want to celebrate my first run with the right music to compliment that great engine sound. I'm thinking Wind Cries Mary by Hendrix. Anyone have any favorite music for driving?

After ordering my Boxster and then until it was delivered, I kept having ZZTop running through my brain. It was a good first drive choice.

Other driving albums for me:

Night driving, esp. rainy = anything off of Disintegration by the Cure.

Top down, beautiful summer night = Doors' Light my Fire for crankin' along or anything off Alligator Records' 25th Anniv. Blues Collection or even Fumbling Towards Ecstacy if in a more quiet mood.

Enjoy that first cruise! Definite sweet moment... don't forget the break-in period!

Oooh, Distintegration...haven't listened to that one in a long time!

How about Randy Newman's "I Love LA":

"Rollin' down the Imperial Highway
With a big nasty redhead at my side
Santa Ana wind blowin' hot from the north
And we was born to ride
Roll down the window, put down the top
Crank up the Beach Boys, baby
Don't let the music stop
We're gonna ride it till we just can't ride it no more"

Or you could follow it explicitly and go for the Beach Boys "Wouldn't it be Good" or lots of others!

Talking Ragtop Day

When I first got my Boxster just about a year ago, the first thing I put on the stereo was Jimmy Buffet's "Ragtop Day." Very fitting tune for my first convertible.

Lyrics:

The five o'clock Friday blows
I got to let it go
Put on my weekend clothes
Turn on the rock 'n' roll

Throw all our cares away
It's a ragtop day
It's a ragtop day

Classy little white and red
Turns everybody's head
My baby meets me at the five and dime
She's always right on time

We roll all our cares away
It's a ragtop day
It's a ragtop day

We'll cruise across the county line
A little dance and dine
A drive in picture show
When the midnight's comin' down we're headin' back to town
She lets her lovin' show
Whoa oh oh oh whoa

Feels like we're the only ones to see the mornin' sun
Sleepin' through the afternoon and risin' with the moon
Oh don't the stars look bright
It's a ragtop night
It's a ragtop night
We'll throw all our cares away
I live for that ragtop day

It's a ragtop day
It's a ragtop day
It's a ragtop day

-- Spoken:
"Ooh, come on over here baby get in this car"
"We gonna cruise on down to the GULF"
"And listen to some WESTERN music"
"Get ourselves a cool one at the Florabama, ya"
"All right come on in here, yeah!"
"You can move over little closer"
"Ooh, be careful of that stick shift!"
"Ya, let's rockit ragtime"
"Was that your husband that just passed us in that station wagon fulla kids?"
"Let's get outta here, Ow!"

Have you taken it past 5k rpm yet Charlie? Things get alot more interesting between 5-7.2K rpm. Think you can hold out for 2,000 miles? Don't worry it won't hurt it to rev it up once or twice

It is also a good idea to make sure the left most digit on your speedometer is working

Not yet but I know what you mean. It's only got 450 mile so far.
