    This car is my first PCCB experience and all I can say is WOW!
    I think I fell in love with them on the way to town this morning and after my drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway I asked them to marry me

    Re: My 2011 911 Turbo S Comes Today!

    Hi John,
    My 2009 911 had PDK and I liked it very much after having Tiptronic of my 2006 911 Cab.  I didn't much care for Tip so PDK was a huge improvement in the 2009.  My 2009 was an early build and the first introduction of PDK and it was a tad flaky with error messages off and on but a software update not only fixed that but made it seem more responsive.  Long answer to your question but I'm very happy with it.

    Re: My 2011 911 Turbo S Comes Today!

    OMG fantastic car, this is a beauty. What a good decision. This is lovely specced. IMO this is a true 911 icon to be, the best of the 997.2 which was a really great 911 series. Hope to see many more pictures, stunning scenery

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Thanks everybody, you're all too kind.  Here's one from my drive today.  This is in front of the Slivermoot mansion in Brevard.

    Don, don´t take it wrong for saying this, but I think it´s time for you to change your avantar with one of those wonderful pics you have. The first one that we see the car from the back is simply amazing, the S looks so agressive and WIDE, I love it. That said, I have to confess your avantar with the paiting is great too Smiley

    Thanks Porker, glad you enjoyed.
    J. and Fritz (they called my Dad Fritz), thanks for my Avatar suggestions.  I understand and am complimented by J.'s suggestion and I considered it.  Then I thought this - Porsches ARE fairly rare and beautiful for sure but they are a creation of man.  White squirrels are also beautiful, are even rarer than Porsches, but were not made by man.  I'm very lucky to have several come to visit me every day.

    that was not made by the hands of men.

    Your pics are really magnificentSmileySmiley
    I like most of all the one with the small waterfall in the background. It seems to be a almost unreal scenery, like painted by an artist. Smiley
    I never would have thought that your grey on grey cab would fit so perfect and elegant in its surroundings.
    Enjoy it and keep the pics running.

    Btw: your avatar is most perfect like it isSmiley

    I like your idea with the "Dr Jekyll / Mr Hyde Button". Smiley

    Thanks to your great photos, I allowed myself to get sidetracked into browsing NC's tourist attractions Smiley and saw that your area is referred to as the "Land of the Waterfalls", so I guess it is appropriate that one of them puts in an appearance in this shot  -  even if only as an "extra".

    Hi Fritz,
    You're most welcome, I'm having fun too.
    Looks like over 250 waterfalls here in Transylvania County, means "across the mountains" I've been told.

    I really like they put a Grateful Dead song name "Fire on the Mountain" on the web page!
