Jeph,

I think it's more important to point out that the #1 and #9 richest Americans choose to drive a Porsche.

These guys could afford any car in the world, and they chose a 911 and a Boxster !

( side note: I didn't know a 1999 911 Convertible was considered "rare" ? There are about 200 for sale on autotrader nationwide right now )

Nick

PS - djolmas, I think I found your next car :

From the article...

"The Porsche Boxster is no longer sold as a new car."

... did I miss something?

Between that and...

"He owns a 1999 Porsche 911 convertible, which is quite a rare car."

...I'd say this article is pretty craptastic.

I guess it is time for me to admit that I'm a geek... with a lot less money than them...

By the way, the flamethrower sig is hillarious!

Glad my sig entertains!

If I ever bump into Michael Dell, I'll be sure to bring up the Boxster.. maybe see if he wants to try some AutoCross or something... hehehe


He's probably too busy for anything like that, since he 'took the helm' again.
