    Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    This is a happy day for festively lighted indoor tree receipts. Got this great stuff for my Carrera:

    What did you get for your 997/S?



    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    I got a Sally Carrera tree ornament for the rearview mirror!

    I got a P car hat and the RS Spyder sweatshirt from my better half! I will pay for them in anxiety, however, when she 'borrows' the P car this summer for runs to the shore house.

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    I got three car wash brushes of varying types and sizes, a spray bottle of wheel cleaner, and a large bottle of premium car wash and wax! The packages were labeled, "From Santa".

    Don't worry too much. My theory is lots of women love the _idea_ of driving a Porsche. But once they drive it a few times they don't like it as much as they thought (small, low, not enough room for shopping) and they leave it alone.

    Also, the "threat" of having a big baby (us) go thru a tantrum and crying spell if there's a mere ding or scratch also weighs heavily and dissuades them.

    As to the latter, you may be correct (well you are correct about the 'big baby' part )

    As the the former, she drives more aggressively then I do. I am usually going something like: "do you realize how fast you are going... ", etc. The response is usually "well..." and a stab at the accellerator .

    I am trying to convice her of the merits of a Boxster S so she will leave mine alone! Of course, now having driven the 911, she is having none of it and steers the conversation to a cab.

    God help me

    LOL. WOW, that's funny. Good for you! It'll work out somehow. When I first got mine, my current wife was in passenger seat reading magazines. I decided to go for upper limit and started calling out speeds. I got to 130mph (break in period max) and emphatically called out, "That's 130!" She didn't even look up, kept reading, and passively said, "That's nice Dear."


    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    "That's nice Dear."





    LOL, YOU are a lucky man. Mine is inquiring about the P driving school and DE days with our local chapter. All i can think of is mechanical catastrophe .

    My wife is not allowed to drive my 997S. However, I did let her get in the driver's seat once and pull the car into my garage.

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    During the holidays my youngest daughter from PA got to drive the 911 around a bit. Before long I had to start asking her for the keys.

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    I hit the jackpot. Wife gave me Escort 9500 Blu with direct wire cord, the GT1 acceleromoeter, and Durametric software for scanning my DME.
    Haven't had the chance to try any of them yet .

    LOL. That expression always cracks me up!

    BTW, your wife's gift-giving astuteness is exemplary

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    Mine (wife) got me the umbrella that fits to the right of the passenger seat (in a left hand drive car). It is a very nice way to fill that spot. It is also a sign that she is accepting of the car - very important step.

    All my girls have driven my 911s as soon as they could reach the clutch and push it to the floor (and the gas). Each started driving them around 12! They started racing go-karts early (8-9) so they are familiar with the rear engine and neither has ever stalled the 911. Watching my girls drive the 911 well is a treat in itself!

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    I got a Martini Racing track jacket! I love it, wear it everywhere I go!

    I got my dad a sign to hang in front of his cayman that says "NO PARKING: Except for kick a$$ Porsches, all others will be towed"
    He loves it!

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    OK AndyM, fess up now - where did you get that sign; I know of a garage in need of one!

    Bad news! When God hears prayers like yours, he suddenly turns atheist.

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    Or deaf; Because, as we all know, God drives a P car

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    For those of you who thought i was just joking - here she is!! Had to use the "sports" setting on the cam for the pic not to blur

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    A new watch!

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    Hey Lorenzo, show us a better pic please?

    Gotta love e-bay!!!
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PORSCHE-P...sspagenameZWDVW

    and I treated myself to a new watch with some christmas money. I've always been a fan of the uniqueness of Invicta watches, so now I have my second!

    I have a picture of it on it's side next to my Nixon Rotolog, just to show how truly enormous it is, because anyone who's seen the rotolog knows, it's not tiny. It weighs 1.4 pounds!!






    Oh, by the way, it's an Invicta Corduba Malaga Dive watch.

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    AndyM - Aw, a one off - i am truely depressed. Nice find!!

    PS - My wife helpfully tells me i have no clue and it is not a one off; soon to be mine! Thx!

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    My wife cheekily asked for a watch and she got it. If you don't ask ya don't get.

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    Joost, here's a better pic of the watch I got!

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    hehe Lorenzo, looks like Porsche has been generous to you!
    -Joost-

    Re: Gifts Received for my 997! What did you get?

    Wow! That sure is a big "clock".....

    Nice watch!!
