Yellow 986 S Bought

Finally bought a 986 after several months of considering lots different Boxsters.
On Friday I purchased this 2001 986 S from Joe at 986 Rescue. 62K mile car with a 58K mile engine. Runs great. Looks great. I drove it 350 miles to no where in perfect Midwest fall weather this weekend.
I'm still grinning!

Congrats on the new ride. Nothing better that a spirited drive on a beautiful fall day. Did the same today.

Where in Illinois are you located?

Just south of Springfield. Flat farm country, but plenty of good places to exercise a 986!

Congratulations! I love the yellow, you don't see that color very often. After several months of searching, what made you pull the trigger.

Congrats! Be prepared to have lots of people telling you how much they love your car (especially when you stop at a gas station). Also, and not sure if it's the color or the shape and size of the car, but little kids ALWAYS point at me as I drive by!

Except for the wheels (I love your wheels!) your car is a match for mine, right down to the yellow roll bar, seat belts, and center console.

I tried to "pull the trigger" several times, but it seemed the sellers didn't really want to be sellers for some reason. One guy backed out of a deal that we both agreed to. One guy raised his price after posting on here the amount he wanted. Several, both on this board and CL didn't even respond to my request for information, etc. There are several others that were strange. Then I was contacted by Joe at 986 Rescue(Xcellr8). He was very good to deal with, and put together a deal that fit my needs. I think I found the right deal on the right car!

Happy to hear you persevered and got the car you wanted. First I've heard about Joe and 986 Rescue, but hope that you enjoy it as much as I do mine.
