Why didn't anyone else think of hanging the Boxster on the wall for storage? Brilliant!

I got mine out of storage Saturday, haven't seen it since late October. Put the battery in, inserted the key, took a deep breath, turned the key... we have ignition... and it started right up... no smoke, just the wonderful sound of the flat six purring. The weather was cold, gray, windy so I didn't put the top down for the five mile drive home.

On the way home I was thinking about various holidays that sort of coincide with this momentous occasion: It's only been a month since Lincoln's Birthday, Easter and Passover are both next weekend so, depending on one's cultural affiliation we could call the drive home:
Boxster Emancipation Drive
Boxster Resurection Drive
Boxster Exodus Drive

This week I'll reduce the tire air pressure back to normal and, weather permitting give it a good interior and exterior cleaning to be set for another seven months of being the daily driver while the Volvo XC70 (248k miles) languishes in the driveway driven only a few miles a week to keep it somewhat exercised.
