So I headed out to Niagara Falls today for a road trip... *PICS*

Niagara Falls is about 2.5 hours from home so me and my buddy hit the road and flew down to the falls today and for the night to check out the night life drink some pints and have a good time. Here are the boxster related pics.

I stopped the car right on the main drag and pulled out my camera and tripod and snapped some of those pics you see (night mostly) cars just went around with no problems.

Had a hell of a good time, enjoy the pics.

I love it there. I am planning my first trip with the boxster sometime this summer/fall. That is really a nice place for a drop top.

I like the little Porsche crest on the side. Too bad they don't put them on at the factory.
For some reason Porsche has seldom used them on their cars. They showed up a few times on the hillclimb and Targa Florio race cars in the '60s, but not often.

Every year I go to Flightsafety in Toronto for refresher training on my aircraft. I think Niagara on the Lake has to be one of the most beautiful towns I have ever seen to include Europe. Absolutely amazing...I just wish it wasn't a 3000 mile drive from my house.

We jumped in my car and hit the highway with no plans or intensions on stopping anywhere in particular. We stopped when we decided we were hungry or wanted to have a good time. We just ended up in Niagara Falls as a result of driving south.

I would have liked to said, but didn't even know I was coming to be honest!

Nice pictures, I like the side mirror pic. On your car pic, I notice you have a Porsche symbol just before the driver side door. Can you take a closer shot? How did you do it?

It's a 986 and a Porsche Badge on the side. Both are just stick on.

The 986 is raised letters like the standard Boxster badge on the rear, and the Porsche symbol is a flat printed sticker.
