    Haha Joe,

    He's brought me many cars.  Shoes off, climbs in window.  He weighs no more than I, maybe 165, but a lot fewer spinal problems.Smiley

    My surgeon banned me from LWB, so I was pleasantly surprised to be able to get in alreadySmiley

    First Drive:

    Interesting to name it the Roma - presume they meant my favourite fooball club as a child:), but this car as cultured and beautiful as it is, will have you dancing the csárdás to wild unruly Roma musicians.

    Everything to hand and intuitive, twist the manettino to sport and there it stays, only 5,000 until 600 miles but clearly taught and nimble, a feel similar to the 997 GT2.  Shifts are gorgeously fast. No word on acceleration til 600 miles... The vision out the front is wide and unblocked.

    Very wide, barely fits in the garage, but lots of room inside, less tight than a 911.  I had been concerned the screen would be too much too handle but once i figure out all the ac vents i'll be happy.  Build is tight and perfect, interior quality extremely high.

    Not sure how they built this for a Porsche price.  More to follow.


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Congrats watt !! The color looks great in the sunlight, a very elegant ride. But come on, give the audience what we want, a cavallino filled with labradors like only you could. smiley


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    and a picture of the interior, s'il vous plait smiley

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    The good news is they have Daddy back to 2 hours grinding the steep from 8500', maybe half way to healthy.

    The bad news is not all real estate is move in ready:

    Old mining camp?  That tank on the lefthand of the first image looks interesting.  


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Someone asked to see interior; it's difficult to capture Blue Sterling, but it's very similar to Yachting Blue in our C2S Cab...

    Just ripping around doing errands the Roma is very quick even just using 5,000 rpm.  Even though curb weight is 3,400 lbs, it somehow feels lighter and more responsive than .2 Gt3- might be the steering.

    Minor road trip tomorrow will tell more.

    Yes silver lead mine -- off set head frame [the ore cars came down the cable from up the mountain, rather than up a shaft below] at 9500'.  Winter mining up here could not have been fun. Our predecessors were tough.  Tank probably a ball mill, to reduce the waste off the ore before the wagons carried the ore down the nasty steep road 5 miles to the valley,
