New 986 owner in Washington State

Greetings!
I am the proud new owner of a 1998 Boxster! I live near Tacoma Washington and bought the car as a fun "project". Everything appears to be in great working order at 89k miles. Engine is strong, transmission is smooth and suspension is solid. I don't know much about the service history for the car so I plan on doing all the maintenance that should have been done assuming it hasn't. I got the car for what I think was a great price because of the unknown past.
I look forward to learning as much about this car as I can from this site. My other ride is a 2017 Nissan Frontier that is moderately modified for more fun. I don't plan on doing too much as far as modification to the Boxster but who knows, that may change.

Glad to be here and part of the Porsche Family! I've wanted one since I was 14 years old.

Near Tacoma? UP? Parkland? Spanaway? Salishan?

Great! I was raised in Parkland and, in the 70's used to walk with my buddies from 117th and Pacific to Spanaway Park... Sprinker.

224th... Elk Plains?

Lots of green up there. Trees and such.

Enjoy the new car!
