OK, I got it!

Well, picked it up Saturday morning, with 12 miles on the clock, and now 259; all logged this weekend under anything but ideal conditions (other than a brief, brisk drive through the Kent, CT area with some TTers), but I love it already anyway, and can't wait to really get on it post break-in. The sounds the car makes are just amazing to me - like it's pissed off all the time!

Here are links to a couple of pics (until someone can explain to me how to get pics posted), better ones to follow, hopefully following a wash during this thaw were supposed to have.

Man, you guys aren't hip to the times are you?

When you get that "d9d" image, just go back up to the address bar and hit return again. The page will refresh with the proper image.

The car looks sweet man, I haven't seen any of the green ones yet.

I LOVE the color. I like your tan interior. Mine is black and I'd rather have tan or grey. Sweet car!

Just refreshing by hitting "F5" or the refresh button isn't enough because your site referrer is still 986forum.com. You have to go up to the address bar and actually hit enter, as though you just typed in the address into the address bar yourself. There won't be a referrer ID that way and thus the website you're trying to hit won't think that the image has been inlined on another site (which most people consider bandwidth theft, hence the reason why they discourage it with replacement images such as this silly little d9d thing).

I had forgotten about the Rolex Green 987. This green's much better.

Thanks for all the compliments...I love this car! Will post some pic after I get it nicely cleaned up, which will be when the ice is out of the damn garden hose, if not the driveway!
