No Frost On My Pumpkin

We've been experiencing one of the most beautiful "Indian Summers" in years up here in New England. And, so far there hasn't been any frost on my pumpkin.

Nice location

The wheels are staying black, Rawley. That's a fact.

Hey Johnny, there is no chrome to be found on your car. Design balance-wise, you need to powder coat or paint the exhaust tip 'black' as well. Do it right!

Other than that, it is still one of my favorite boxster

Leave it alone (hard to do I know), the color and wheels are spot on. The stance is perfect.

Seasons are highly over-rated. Sunny and low-80's here in LA all week.

Two more words: matte film

Go frosted year-round. Probably would help with the gravel road concerns, too.

A "Driver" would possibly be the best next add-on.

Heard the car was parked there for the last decade, rarely seen roads, unfair

Maybe if you didn't 'expose' your pumpkin you wouldn't have to worry about frost or other possible 'dangers', if you will?

Of course driving it from time to time, as has been pointed out, would heat it up enough that frost wouldn't have time to settle on it, now would it.

Black wheels hide brake dust for sure.
