    In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    With apologies to Simon & Garfunkel

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    The muddiest car park in the New Forest! Mine was the 1st "05" car to leave the dealer with the roof down

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    Very nice DC! When did you pick it up?

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    1400hrs today. Now nicely tucked up in my garage. (My wife is suffering a heavy cold so we abandoned this evening's celebratory meal out)

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    Hope you managed a quick play before bedtime!

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    No, the baby is asleep.

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    Looking good! Hope you didn't drool too much at the dealers.

    Best clean those tyres though - they look muddy!

    You named it "Mrs. Robinson"?--or do you live near Scarborough...or are you parked under a bridge having trouble with your water?
    Hehehe...

    "Yippeee, I just got my new Boxster...think I'll plant it in the middle of a field of mud." Hmmmmmm.....

    Whats that in the footwell of the passenger side? A pair of knickers?
    4 miles after picking up the car???
    Damn! You're a smooth operator!

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    We met Victor Meldrew in the car park and he wanted to sit in my new car.

    And to all of us non-British ignorants, who might he be?
    You sure it's not you?

    A grumpy old pensioner.

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    It looks absolutely stunning IMO.
    If that's arctic silver like my 986 I guess there is a chance I can swop the cars without you noticing...? (Why settle for a couple of 19" rims when you can get the full package?

    I'm truly envious! It's SO good-looking, and the mere thought of you driving a better car than mine at less than half the price really makes me wanna....wanna...go and put on a Julie Andrews record...(breathe, breathe...)

    You know what, Ive been thinking a lot about this, and Ive decided that I will gladly help you break it in when I come over. Free of charge! Yes, I know. That kind of generosity is almost too much to handle, but that's the kinda guy I am.

    Nice, and then after he had the moment of his life, you had to end his misery.
    I dont believe it!

    I did say that was the muddiest car park in the New Forest. Do you like my cap?

    What was the Simon and Garfunky analogy about?

    One of their greatest hits - The Boxer. Don't you get proper music in Denmark?

    Yeah, I think it was a number one hit here.....................in 1972...
    I just heard a great new song called "She loves you", by a brand new band Ive never heard before.
    I think they were british and called themselves something like "The Meetles" or "Feetles"...

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    Looking very nice.
    Glad you had some sun.
    So, that's what headgear you need in a Boxster !

    Looks like he's got BOTH feet in the grave!

    Re: In the Clearing Stands a Boxster

    Well, went for a 60 mile workout this afternoon, just me and the car. I had sun, snow, sleet, rain - and the car was just awesome. From a gentle cruise up to Salisbury with Chris Rea on the Bose down to Ringwood and a blast back up to the M27 and back through the New Forest. Bose off, just listening to that flat six music (no more than 4,500 rpm). Instant power, any gear, any speed. PASM amazing. Comfortable in cruise, then fly round a roundabout or through tight corners with no roll at all. No front end dip on braking. Never experienced anything quite like it. And this is just the beginning of the relationship. Wash the car, quick drive to dry out the brakes and then tuck it up in the garage. Porsche driving course in May a definite must have to learn how to get the best out of this wonderful machine.
