Saying Good Bye to one and Hello to another

Well, after much thought; I finally sold my 04 Viper. She was a real fun car to drive around, but I wanted something a bit more driveable on a daily basis. My Corvettes aren't going anywhere though!

So...Good Bye Mamba!




Hello 07 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S!












So, I guess this really does apply to me now

They have those Porsche's steering so refined you can fall asleep behind the wheel, wake up 30mintues later and it would still be going in the direction you set it at.

Nice colour by the way.

I about fell over when you emailed me the pics.

BEAUTIFUL ride. Glad I got to experience the Viper, but I'm pretty sure this 4S is going to see a lot more miles and smiles. See ya in few!

Thanks everyone! I still love my Vettes, but a Porsche has always been a dream car ever since I was a little kid

I was putting some serious thought into picking up a Turbo, but remembering the few conversations I had about it with Dan, I went ahead and went with the 4S. I am sure it will still move!

Nice Looking Porsche!!! To be honest, I was never a Porsche guy, but yours look delicious...

I'm being attracted to Aston Martin Vantage these days (I know I know.. they are not fast... but they are not meant to be fast like Vette), and never thought of 911, but after looking at yours, I want to check out P cars.

I have been meaning to post this for a bit. Anyways, if anyone was ever wondering. You can fit a .50 cal Barrett into a Porsche. Just need a little bit of finesse.

My brother in law is a huge Porsche guy. He recently traded in his two Porsches and bought a Maserati Quattroporte S.
I showed him your pics he loves it. Great color too
