Reluctantly crouched at the starting line....

(Flat) Engines pumping, and thumping in time.....

No 'tronics, no leather, no 18's, he's bored.....

He's haunted by things he cannot afford....

Bowl-shaking earthquake, of doubt and remorse....

When the IMS fails, with Monster Truck force.....

Ferdinand, Ferry, and Butzi come to mind,

What is this modern mid-engined Porsche - a one of a kind?

For the guys up north....

Lonely feeling, deep inside....

Oil leaking, I can't hide......

Growling tailpipe, follow me......

Headlight washers, so I can see!!

No oil tonight, in my water!

No glowing lights, on my tree!

Busy as a bee
Always wondering
Should I have bought something with a V?

986 Forum provides assistance,
But all I feel is the need;

I’m trying to go the distance,
Jägermobile’s ready for speed;

I’m feeling resistance,
How can I ever succeed?

But, soft! What light through yonder post doth break?
It is the East, and Jager is the sun!

Alas, 'tis true,
My light, here and there, for all to the view,
To shine on what’s most dear, Boxster affections, old and new;

IMS Bearings, two times I have lit the truth,
Replacing thee gives 986 more youth;

Askance and strangely, but by all above,
Preventative Maintenance proved thee, 986 best of love;

Now all is done? Repairs shall have no ends,
Newer proof, try an older Boxster my friends;

Always give me welcome, 986 forum you’re the best,
Now gaze to the East, all 986 members shine by helping a guest.
