Johnny - Look what I found today

Look what I found today on E-BAY. I was looking at maybe picking up a newer box today and came across this GT3?-Boxster. I would buy it but I would not want to "step in to DANGER-ous territory". I actually really like this car but it is a little overpriced.

Kinda cool sans the rear wing and yellow bobo wheels.

Overall a darn nice car! I'll say that the wheels and yellow seat inserts are up to personal taste but that rear wing is a bit too much.

I could live with the seats. But, the wheels and B-52 wing would definitely have to go. I'd love to see the vehicle up close and inspect the level of work that went into the "kit".

It is a Florida car, not that that guarantees it's been maintained. I have to admit I kinda like the wheels. Pretty unique but definitely personal taste.

I suggest that you buy it. Then we can breed it with the Dangermobile and bring some more speed yellow boxsters into the world !

Yellow Boxsters are the product of inbreeding? Makes sense...

I wonder if this slows down the car.

As a native Southern Californian, it embarrasses me that I now live in a state that would allow that.

The yellow and black seats make me feel very nostalgic about the late 1980's.

p.s.
That might be the most expensive Boxster not to have Litronics

OOOOhhhhhhhhh, I didn't realize it was multi-functional. Now it makes sense. I assume they are cooking a meal in the engine compartment too.

Should have gone for the optional seating though...

The wing isn't my style but isn't that how the GT cup cars roll?
