914 to 1999 Boxster

I have had a 83 911 targa, two 914s and on nov. 16th 2012 I bought my first boxster. Wow what a car. I always thought the 914 was more fun to drive than the 911 cuz of the motor placement. Man! The boxster is great. If porsche put as much time and energy into the boxster as they do the 911 they most likely would never sell another 911. Love love it. Hope I can get the pics in here. Never tried this before.

986fun,
Welcome to the forum and to the world of 986. These are great cars and as you have found-out fun to drive.

I was in Joplin last year and saw the devastation caused by the tornado. How is Joplin doing? Are businesses and homes being rebuilt? Are things back to normal yet?

Thanks, Things are advancing here in Joplin but there is still large parts of the town completely flat. No trees or anything. Feels really strange when driving through those places.
