Where does your Boxster sleep?

So who spoils their car the most? Who's Boxster lives in luxury? This is where mine spends its evenings......how about yours?

Mine is finally garaged because I have my own place now but not quite in the luxury of yours. I'll get some pics later. I would like to get a checkered flag floor put in but haven't looked at pricing yet.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

Mine isn't allowed to sleep.

It is permitted to "rest its eye lids" in my PorscheHaus though... which is the name I gave to my new garage I built to protect my car from cats and birds.

Cool, thanks for the heads up... Looks like it would be about $1000 to do the garage. $119 for 48 square feet. It says a standard 2 car garage will need about 8 boxes. Plus a $70 completer kit. I'm going to look into that.

Mine stays in the garage (no pics please, I'm gonna clean up the place any day now, no, really I am...)

I give it a glass of warm oil (synthetic of course) before bedtime to help it sleep.

He sleeps there. The garage is kinda dirty because the picture is taken on the winter. I have a floring garage coat. You can buy it on Home depot. Less expensive than those squares.

We move in here Thursday the 22nd. Old home was all shop, no room for car....that just wasn't gonna happen!

I used a sealer on the floor as well, it should really keep dust down as well.

The house is a very nice accessory for your boxster if even a little pricey! Congrats!

Well, just add a zero and almost another $100K to the Boxster and it's a pretty close price fer the home, but it's actually less than what we just sold our previous home for. It's 3400 sq. ft but a small yard compared to a 29,000 sp ft lot and 1800 sq ft home. The difference is now we are in the country. Right on Loomis Trail Golf Course. Nice great big backyard someone else takes care of!
I used DB-6520 Clear Gloss Sealer from Mason's Select. http://www.superdeck.com/masonsselect/Default.htm#seal
Great product...just lots of ventilation required! Gets a little dizzy in the garage after the first 2 gallons! Great wet look, keeps dust down and will make cleaning easy. Eventually we plan to put some type of rolled out floor as tiles seem way too expensive for my use. I see several precut rolled diamondplate pattered floors i can get fairly reasonable.

It's a great happy new home for all of us, especially the Boxster!!

Outside. Covered, but outside. I swept almost all the snow off. Weather here is harsh, and single military folks generally don't make enough $$ to buy houses in the overpriced Anchorage market. Besides, I'm moving again in December.

I lifted the cover a few days ago and it's still as clean and shiny as the day I covered it back in November.
