Driveless in Seattle

This shouldn't happen in Seattle!..... And she's only had her nose out in it for 10 mins. It just isn't right. Please drive your box for me tomorrow.

I feel your pain. I haven't driven mine since Sunday due to all the snow. Most roads that I drive to work on the Eastside are now clear. Maybe I'll take it to work today. I hate not driving it.

Ours has been snowbound too. Our daughter likes posing in front of it, though, so it hasn't been completely useless.

Since we're all posting pics of our snow-covered Boxsters.....



Here's hoping the rear window survives the winter! Haven't driven it since late October. Looking to bring it back to life around April 1st.

Why do I see all these cars IN FRONT of their garages when it snows? I thought the point of a garage is to keep the cars INSIDE.

Wow, I drove mine last night here in NYC/NJ area, top down.. it was almost 70 degrees out!

As far as a garage, the Boxster has to tough it out under a cover, I only have a 1 car garage and my 911 has seniority

We have a two car garage which contains a '71 Corvette Roadster and a '75 Triumph TR6. Neither is terribly water tight, so they stay in the garage, the Box gets the driveway.

Hi,

Yes there is. That pic is actually one of the car covered because we were away an extended period this Spring, but with the exception of the Vinyl and some rodent traps, that's exactly how it looks right now...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
