Paul;

I agree with you about Italian design. As for the Boxster being easy to work on, I do not agree. Maybe it's just me, but I would need a proper car lift in my garage to access the underside...

Thanks, Paul.

I've owned many sports cars and this Boxster S is by far the best of the lot; a great combination of power, handling and ride quality. The only category it falls short in is style....

I've been driving sporty cars for 50 years, but only have one story along these lines. On Highway 49 in the Sierra foothills, a pickup truck pulled onto the highway behind my '95 Miata. The Miata...

Hello, Dave.

My Boxster is my DD. I borrow my daughter's van if I have to haul big stuff, and that's the rub. If you don't have easy access to some other, larger vehicle, you'll probably find the...

Yep, a lot of what you posted is true. I don't get much in the way of reactions from anybody, anywhere around here (NorCal). I think it depends on your location.

There's no harm in telling the buyer their price is fine as long as the car has no serious issues. Make it clear that if the PPI turns up significant issues, like IMS not done, you will make an offer...

One thing I've noticed about high performance sticky tires is, they become hard and slick much faster than "normal" compound tires. When I bought my dearly departed, supercharged Miata NA track and...

Hello, Fanguy.

You're shopping the right way and following up on prospects correctly. At least it's the same way I buy cars. Dickishness doesn't matter.

As for low miles vs. high miles; I've...

Box is my daily driver, unless I want to take our 90-pound dog somewhere. I use the old Volvo wagon for that, although I do have a dog-proof seat cover that I used in my previous DD, a 1995 Miata. I...

Some people like the idea of driving on public roads in a full-on race car, which is what a Viper is. Not me, but I get it.

Don't mess with the speaker resonance box inside the door. Even a small hole drilled into it will wreck the sound. (Had to fix previous owner's mistake in mine.) If you mount a bare speaker in the...
