Texas area guys! Wurstfest!

A buddy of mine (on the old 911 side of my p-car hobby) is going to put together an informal drive southwest of Austin, ending up in New Braunfels on Saturday November 10th.

Jamie is known for finding the AWESOME roads around Austin, and NOT driving slowly on them!

So if any of y'all want to come on down for a great fun drive, and Wurstfest, I'll post details as we get closer to the event. I guarantee the drive will be a blast! I missed it last year, and I regret it, but I had an excuse - my 911 was (and still is) not really in prime driving condition. Now that I have the Boxster, I have no excuses!

I can't make it on Nov 10th but I am curious about the route to New Braunfels. I find RR1431 really awesome besides RR 2222. Anyway, please keep us posted.

That's kind of far away for me, but with enough notice in advance. I may be able to go to this one. I'm in the Dallas/Addison area. Keep us posted.

We'll be on much better roads than 1431 or 2222!


I'll update as soon as we set up a meeting place. It will be that Saturday morning, probably around 8am somewhere in South Austin.

I'll also be installing a new top on my Boxster sometime in the next month or so, if anyone wants to see how it's done. (I also had an idea last night... if someone has a video camera and is good at editing, we could make a how-to video!)

If it's anything like what we had this last weekend, you don't want to let a three hour drive to Austin stand in the way.

Hi there,

My name is Brian and I'm new to the site. I just purchased a 03' boxster that looks a lot like "timothy" car...triple black with 18' carrera rims...though it's not a boxster s. I live in the Austin area and I'm interested in learning how to replace the convertible. top. Also, I'm always up for meeting new boxster owners in the area. Here's a pic of the new purchase. I'm glad to find a site dedicated to the boxster.

Chig, nice car! Those are the wheels I wish I had! Someday I'll get a set.

Send me an email, and I'll let you know when I'm going to replace the top.

Randall, thanks for bringing this up. I haven't received the details on the meet and drive, but it is still on!

My buddy that is kinda setting this up (this is not an 'official event') hasn't announced the meeting time and place.

I'll post here when I hear! I think it will be a fun event!

Hey, I really need to know this event is happening and the times of the event as well.

The wife is wanting to know when we can go to dinner with friends in Austin, etc.

Fray, can you light a fire under your buddies' butt to get the details in order?

I need to know when and where we'll meet (an address and time would be great) and when we'll be wrapped up for the day.

Thanks!

Chig, we must get together in a couple of weeks' time for Wurstfest and get a shot of our cars next to one another. I have the same color and same rims as you.

So very cool, my new friend!

Guys, I'm going to end up missing this... I'm taking the opportunity to go out of state to visit a friend before I start my new job (I got laid off a few weeks ago).

I WILL post here about the event. My friend Jamie should have the plan (times/places) by this weekend)

Sounds like fun! Count me in.
