    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Stunning! Congrats...

    Now confirm to us all what I said last week - how good is that handling!!!!

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Thanks everybody, you sure know how to make a guy feel good!
    Here's one from today up on the Blue Ridge Parkway overlooking Cold Mountain. More to come later including SVNSVN's wish pic from above.

    Geeez, laundry isn't getting done, no lunch yet, other chores are being neglected, even the cats didn't get fed until late. It's all that damn P-car's fault!


    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Handling mich?
    In a word INCREDIBLE!
    I'm no expert racing driver kind of guy so I was reluctant to even try to answer your question but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night soooo here goes .....

    I'm 60 and it's been FORTY YEARS since my last P-car (1600 Normal Cab) but I have owned some great handling cars (5 BMW 2002s, an Alfa-Romeo, an MG, Miata, WRX, etc.). These mountains are full of tight twisty turny roads, perfect for the P-car. It handles better than any car I've EVER driven and the brakes are nothing short of amazing! I have the standard brakes and they are very confidence inspiring.
    The car really does feel like it's on a rail.
    I know it can't but it tells me, on the road, that it can do a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g I ask of it.
    Amazing and so effortless!
    If anyone out there is "on the fence", GET OFF and get one of these machines now!


    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Congratulations.

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Very Nice Congrats.

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    This one's for Throt.
    My P-car, jealous of Throt's hair, decided today to become a redhead!

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    And for SVNSVN who asked for one from the back, here's one I hope he likes.

    Nice pics and congrads on the car. I need to make a trip up to the mountains as well.

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Beautiful pics!! Congratulations and enjoy in good health I'm picking up my 06 987S in 3 days with the exact same colour combo - love that Seal Grey

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Thanks for posting. Seal is just about as good as it gets (IMO of course).

    Keep the pics coming, poseur. We're not getting tired of them.

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Wow, gorgeous car. I bet the roads are great drives. enjoy!

    (from "it's the economy stupid".)

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    love the lines on that baby.

    Hey D, I realize you're hard-pressed to peel yourself out of the driver's seat -- but post some pics of the interior if you have any, I would be interested to see how your Carrara White gauges turned out.

    thanks

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Damian, ask and ye shall receive. We're going to have 3 days of rain here so I put the top up this afternoon meaning I just now took this pic with a flash so it might look harsher (the white gauges) that they do in regular light.

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    She's a cute little puppy but does she have to pee on the floor like this?
    But seriously, it's coming from the middle of the vehicle (left to right) underneath and looks like it's directly below the firewall area from the underside of the car. There's quite a bit of it. If it were August I'd say it was AC condensation but it was 50 today. There was some water on the floor this afternoon but now it's a small stream!
    Something's wrong eh?
    Sigh.

    You're right... When you take those turns the car just feels absolutely like glue. It's so confidence inspiring...amazing!

    Re: Poseur's P-car Pics

    Can't begin to describe the feeling of driving these cab's w/ the top down. Maybe they're not the best track 911 but where else can you get this unbelievable performance with the feeling of serenity?

    Your car looks damn fine! Must make a return trip up there.
