Shopping in a Boxster

I made a full run to the grossers with room to spare... :-)

I've been able to put a whole assortment of things between my trunks. The only issue is they always seem a little more tossed around then stuff is in most cars haha!

I see I'm not the only one to have done this deed.

They say, "Happy wife, happy life", but I'd bet some poor schlub's wife came up with that saying...

I used to love doing Costco runs w/ my Boxster. Stroll out w/ a Costco size cart full of 'stuff' and easily put it all in the frunk and trunk w/o a worry...

Of course catching glimpses of people staring in amazement was more fun

Steve,

My younger son told me:

Dad, you have two options with Mom, "either you are happy, or you are right"

3 bags of trash, two of recycling. Should have gotten a picture of the staff who ran the recycling center when I popped both trunks. Make me a more functional fun car.

Had someone at the store stop me when i was putting my groceries in the frunk and they said, "oh that's right the engines in the back", to which i went to the trunk and opened it. They were so confused!

So, How about eight 16ft sticks of crown molding? I guess it doesn't count as they weren't technically in the trunk. I'd stuff one end in the passenger compartment leg area and extend them out between the roll bars with the top down (of course). Stick a flag on the other end and you're good to go!

We should get together
you haul the moldings and I haul the saw and compressor

Rear trunk on the Boxster is a great way to cook food while driving home!

Was on a weekend stay in Stowe VT. Pursuing an old book store, found a complete set of Encyclopedia Britannica that I had to have. Stuck them in the frunk and moved most of its contents to sit around my wife's legs.

She was not amused.

I think I might have everyone beat. 640 lbs of Quickrete. 6 bags in frunk. 2 bags in trunk.

Yes, it was a slow ride home avoiding all bumpy roads.

Beer in Kenora, just across the border in Ontario, can be substantially cheaper than in my home in Manitoba. Therefore whenever I take a scenic drive over there I stock up,.

As I've documented before I can fit six 24 bottle cases in the Boxster, 3 in the front and 3 in the back. There is no room for luggage of course but I wasn't planning on staying over night anyway.

You, kind sir, are aptly named.
