1ST Road Trip

Finally got to enjoy the car.
We thought we'd go for lunch yesterday in Gravenhurst and ended up in Niagara Falls for the weekend.

Here are some pics....I so love this car...I can't believe I waited so long to get her!

Niagara River



Lake Ontario


USA Hydro Dam



Look Out to the USA



This was a great 1st trip
Almost 700K

Now all I have to do is get rid of MY PERMA SMILE...

Don't worry about the perma-smile. Winter will take care of that.

You've got some great roads up there in the Muskoka's, you will really enjoy that car. PCA runs a few runs through the area and all over South Western Ontario - you should look to join.

I did join the PCA/UCR...
I went to sign up for the 1st Muskoka run but I was to late.

Are you doing any of the other runs?

Anytime you want to come up let me know and I be happy to join you.

Cheers!

Check the VIN. I'd be curious to know if the areo skirt and the spoiler were factory. The pamphlet I have for 550 options listed a very short list of factory options.

Great looking car. Wish I had my rims still.

When I first read this, I thought to myself, "How could he put 700,000 miles on the car in one trip?" Then I saw you're in Canada and realized the "K" is thousand for kilometers, not shorthand for Thousand Miles. D'oh!

I hope you enjoy many more! Just make sure that permasmile doesn't turn into this:

Planning on doing the Bear Manor run - sign up is next weekend I believe. That's the next one on the list.

BoxsterSteve and I will definitely be up for a muskoka run, with our without PCA.
