Newbie from San Mateo

Postby wheezyslowpoke » Sun May 05, 2019 12:15 pm

So I rented a Boxster for a few days this week and holy crap, I'm sold. I'm now looking out for an NB Miata. My current car is a 3-series, and I love it, but that little Boxster was a whole new level of fun. I'm hoping to start spending Saturdays driving up in the woods in the Peninsula on the way to the beach. I'd like to get in some autocross, too. Can't wait to get started!

You need to try out a supercharged NB, if only we knew someone with one...

I'd be stupid to sell, but I'm happy to give you a ride if you're interested.

I bought my car. It’s an ‘04 LS in white. I was hoping for red, but this was everything else I wanted. It’s with Tarek in Mountain View getting caught up on deferred maintenance this week, and I’m planning to take it past Alice’s and over to San Gregorio Beach this weekend. Can’t wait to pick it up from the shop!
