For some reason the local PCA chapter sends this out every year but I always thought the date was wrong for the godfather's birthday. Oh well I drove mine to work today anyway and will take the long way home. I think we will go out on Sunday too!!! Now sitting here all I can think about is driving, it's gonna be a long day.

Like to use mine as a DD but the ramp to my free inside parking is too steep and will bottom out... it's when I get home and week-end.

I'm retiring as soon as my wife quit buying toys

Its like a family reunion here when I bring mine to work since we work on mainly old air cooled Porsches so it gets to mingle with its siblings and talk about the homeland. Thankfully I can park inside the shop so it is withen sight all day but it makes the day go by so slow. There's nothing like a full boost 120 mph lunch break though!!! Good times.

$hit, it's supposed to rain here all weekend (unusual for the desert clime I'm in). If I drive it, then I can't claim it's "never been in the rain". How many times do you hear that one? Heaven forbid that my car might get a free bath from mother nature.

I drive mine every day as it is, so all of my miles will take up some of the slack for those that can't.

Almost everyday is, sometimes I walk. Just for the heck of it.
Depends, but I usually drive a average of 217mi a day, Depends.
I really enjoy the long drives, light traffics fine, not a fan of hardtraffic.

A day WITHOUT driving my Porsche is like a day without sunshine...luckily also here in So Cal, we have about 310 days of that per year.

"Shamu" was in storage for 7 years, and is now making up for lost time.
