Great...I hope to get a few weeks out of it before the snow. Where do you take it in town for service?

Cowtown10, I sent you an email. It is snowing right now in Calgary so it might be too late. Hopefully, it won't sticks.

Those are the new style plates, so you can be asured it didnt spend too long down here. you have a garage to store it in for the winter? I know how bitter those winters can be up there... I do miss staying at the banff springs hotel, and the back country snowboarding.

If you miss snowboarding in Banff, try to drive your 930 through the mountains here (in the summer of course). :-)

I have seen pictures that blew me away. I am lucky enough to only be a few hours away from the blue ridge parkway. I know it cant compare to the rockies, but its holding me over for now.

I did notice they have fences lining a lot of the roads up there. at least then you wouldnt have to worry about large animals when hitting the high speeds.

Here is a shot from the Highwood Pass...I might have to wait until next year to drive it near Banff. We will be skiing by Friday at the resorts and backcountry is full on!
The fences help but I did see a F50 at a repair shop last summer that clipped a deer at 200kph

It is my first Porsche...like a lot of people I got a ride in one when I was 15 and was hooked. So 20 years later here it is. I could never get over the look of the 80's 911, 933 TT is next on the list!! maybe another 20yrs
