Who did most of the driving? One major problem I've had is nobody likes to be a passenger. Driving it is too much fun!!

Great pictures. There's nothing like a Boxster S on the twisties. I wish we had more roads like you have there here in IL.

Looks like Lake Henshaw by Mt. Palomar? One of my favorite haunts for my '02 Blue Box and my bikes

How can you drive in flip flops??
I always have to kick off my clutch foot or else I am stuck.
Nice co-pilot though!

Really. I've tried to just drive my car into or out of the garage with untied tennis shoes (not even flip flops) and have a hard time. My shoe come off or slips around when I'm clutching.

And yeah, subgraphic, defend yourself on the questions about the girl

Hahaha-
Sorry to disapoint but they are one and the same...
she is a woman of many hair styles:




I placed the camera on a fence and set the timer, not bad I guess.
I did most of teh driving, but I have to say she can hold her own in the thing...


thanks guys!

Congrats on the engagement! Hopefully Porsche will make a nice minivan for you in about 2-3 years. Just joking, I took the plunge this year in May. Best of luck!

Forty-fifth parallel? That's nothin'. We're on the 61st parallel up here in Anchorage. Unfortunately, the onset of winter means no Boxster driving at all for the next five months or so.
