Your Favorite Pic of Your Boxster / P-Car

Yes, you know you have taken many, some good some not so good. Post up your favorite shot of your car. My favorite pic of current P-Car was taken with crappy cell phone camera in a Lowes parking lot while walking back to it from store, not real clear nor in focus, don't know why but I like it best........

trimer,
Your Arctic Silver Boxster is the bomb. I'd love a set of the Carrera wheels for mine, too.
That speedster replica is sweet too.

1st one was taken at PCA Parade by one of the PCA photgraphers. I thought it was a great shot when they showed it to me so I bought it.

2nd one was in Carmel hwy 1.

Mate, the picture above is my current PC wallpaper. Believe it or not I love this picture. Would you believe the photograph had his pick-up truck reversed into for the shot? Dwload public w'paper at http://st.gdefon.com/wallpapers_original/wallpapers/338245_car_-crashed_-porsche_avtomobili_mashiny_avto_1600x1200_(www.Gde Fon.ru).jpg

The reason may be because I have the very same car. Very recently purchased however not in such good condition as yours. We are re-building it at the moment and plan on posting the built on Rennlist. The engine is first, and already dropped. Leaking the hell out of everything under there.

Got it for dirt cheap as it will be impossible to put a legal plate on it. Not to mention the condition I got it. Once done it will become a collection item (or another of my garage queen).

We are going black on black. Copying member SpyderRS' ideas a bit

Going to upload pics of the car next time I drop by the garage just so you don't feel I'm BS with you or anything. Be cool, it's only the Internet!!!

Yep noticed that already. And that's why I don't post my pristine loyal garage lovers (cars & superbikes) here on the "Boxster-Power" forum , and also the reason why I only sign-off a AM/FM Alpine radio mod on my 986

Will get a few pics of the car and engine in the mid of this week. Got the ride for the equivalent of $3000 here about a month ago (to piss you off more lol). It runs fine, body and seals are I'd say 25% ruined however.... lots of work but nothing we can't do here haha

This is my favorite pic - the very first picture that I took on the very first day of owning a Porsche!

You never forget your first...

My favorite, I think, the car kinda looks like it is ready to leap forward.
