You are a very talented photographer. I’ve admired past photos as well.

We the understated children

I think the Boxster is one of the most beautiful cars ever, it is so subtle and graceful. It may not have the obscene angles of Lamborghini but it speaks of sophistication.

I was thinking something was wrong with me because I like white.

Top Three Overall Colors
Looking at the top overall popular colors in the U.S., for all vehicle categories, silver leads the way with white in close second, followed by black.

Silver - 23%
White - 15%
Black - 12%

Can't agree more. White was so bad Cramer-Krasselt didn't share their videos they took with me yet. Still waiting.

I like the white, not the White wheels or black wheels, pretty boring if we all liked the same cars colours etc,

Love my blue interior with the blue roof over silver.

White boxsters

So here's a couple pics of my glacier white/savannah beige 1999 Boxster I bought back in July. 5 speed, 53000 original miles, all records back to new. Last owner had it ten years. He was elderly and was having a hard getting in the car. It's mint and I am thrilled
