New Guy here to say Hi

Hi there, my name is Darren. I live in a small town in Ontario Canada, north Of Toronto. I bought my Boxster last year and was blown away by what an amazing car it was. I previously owned a 1986 944 Turbo and a 1984 944 that I supercharged.
The Boxster is by far my favourite car and I can't wait for the PCA track season this year. I currently have the engine out to do the tensioner pads, flywheel and many, many other things. The IMS/RMS were done by the PO.

Love this car!!

If you learned to drive the 944 properly, you will kill it in the Boxster

No doubt my 944 Turbo was faster, when it was running right which was almost never. And I definitely knew how to drive it properly, thanks. I love 944's The Boxster is still a MUCH better car in every way.

Pretty much straight up Ninth Line from where I used to live in northwest Mississauga. You have some nice roads up that way in the Halton Hills so youíll enjoy your Boxster come spring.

The ĎPeg is good. We had a relatively mild winter for these parts with little snow and only a 2 week stretch in Feb of sub -25C. Iím looking forward to spring and an end to this damn pandemic as Iím sure we all are.
