Kills Bugs Fast sill guards

I got these made up for my Boxster. I couldn't decide between a spoiler sticker or these and I finally decided on these. Makes a neat personalization that can only be seen if I want someone to see it. I'm sure the purists will flinch but hey, I like it.

Garage
A Porsche Purist does not have a garage gueen and although his car is usually clean, it will never win a concours. A purist knows all Porsches are meant to be driven and usually owns more than 1 model. Most purists use their cars as daily drivers and are most happy at high rpms on a twisty road.

Unless you are a Purist, you are not having as much fun.....

Loosely quoted from an article years ago in Der Sportwagen and reprinted in this publication:

Tool Pants,

I've got one for you, but you never sent me your address. Send your address and I'll ship it out. Take care,

Mike

I was cringing as I opened the attachments, and I'm not even a purist, but they were well done. Nice !

Tool Pants, I'd buy one of those.

Sigma Pi,

I got them from a guy named Harvey Peck. I saw his sills on ebay and contacted him to see if he could do custom ones. They cost me $102.00 delivered. You can contact Harvey at harveypnp@comcast.net Take care,

That looked nice.

Harvey is the same one who sells the PnP rear storage speakers for the Box also.

Purist/enthusiast here!

My Boxster is my daily driver, and I'm not afraid to get it dirty. I have a classic 911 in the garage that I'm slowlly working on... I went up to Dallas on Saturday to check out a small collection of fine Porsches...

Yep. Purist/Enthusiast best describes me.
