Official Black Boxster Thread

so there's an "official" yellow boxster thread, so why not a black one. post your best or favorite pic of your black boxster here!

i'll start it off with this one. it was taken in nov. 2010, but it's still my favorite. i was on my way from eureka springs, ar to dallas, tx.

seriously doubt he contested it. i don't know about PA or MA, but in MD a red light or speed camera ticket is nothing more than a $ maker for the precinct. cheaper to pay than contest it and they do not show up on your driving record or cause any points. the ticketing and collection is outsourced to a third party, with an actual police officer responsible for "verifying" the data is correct. in fact, the state is working on passing legislation that removes the police review requirement so the 3rd party can churn and burn the ticket mailings.

Right. It is only $40 for the ticket and it does not go on record because anyone could have been driving the car. And the spoiler was up because I pushed the button by my feet to put it up. I keep it up all the time because I like the looks of it better than when the spoiler is down.

Anyways, keep the black boxster pics rolling.

I tried making my rims like that, but I could not get the tape perfect enough when painting the middle black. So I made the whole rim black.

Here is another picture of my car. This one is more recent than the other picture I posted:

Camaro in background belonged to a Chevy enthusiast and an old friend of John Delorean(Back to Future Car Creator). He passed away in November so I took that pictured when his grandson(childhood friend) was picking up the car and recharging the dead battery. His grandson inherited the house and the car. And its funny because he works at a Mustang only performance shop where all employees own and work on Mustangs. Now he is going to be driving to work with a Camaro.

My neighbor used to have a Red C3 Stingray Corvette, then he sold it and bought the 98 Camaro SS Z28 brand new with optional performance package with factory upgraded sports exhaust and Intake and silver stripes and hood scoop. Has less than 10,000 miles on it and not a scratch. Garage kept and washed every weekend before he passed away. He also got the Chevy Monte Carlo parked on the street.

Absolutely one of the best pics in this forum. Love the cleanliness, angle and stance of the car. An absolute stunner with oem parts. Well done sir.
