That car looks fast

So, I come home from being out and about this afternoon and after parking my car in the condo building's underground garage, I walk over to where Carmen the Cayman is parked. Just looking at her parked there and appreciating the beauty of her form, the fact that there is nothing on her that is frivolous or without some function, and that she looks like that she's crouching and full of potential energy (in the physics sense). And I'm thinking, she looks like she's moving. She's moving really fast.

Hmm..When I come home, my Carmen is watching TV and drinking my beer. Looks like she is going nowhere for a while.

My Portia attracts compliments every time she steps out. Happened again today. I stopped off to buy some beer, and as I was approaching the counter I noticed some older, slightly weatherbeaten dude looking at me hard, then staring at the guy who had come up behind me. Then he asks the guy behind me is that your "Porsch" (no final e) out there. The guy said no, and when the dude gave me a questioning look I said it was mine. He cracked a huge smile and said "That car is beautiful!" I said thanks and then the guy behind me said no, it was his and he wanted the keys back. He!


Just another day out in public with a lovely piece of work.

Jim, on my second Porsche. The first was a 912 in a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Only posers ask for keys.

Portia grabbed another compliment today. We'd been out walking Great Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary, on the way home stopped into a nearby Whole Foods Market (which I guess is now Amazon Food Market, or Whole Amazon Market, or whatever) so my sweetie could buy some veggies. The lots had more cars that we typically see so I ended up squeezing into a fairly narrow space between to monster SUV's. Sharon went into the store and as usual I sat in the car. I hate shopping, and my presence in the car means whoever gets into the adjacent cars is less likely to bang the doors. While I was waiting a woman pushed a cart up to the car on my left, her driver's door being a ding waiting to happen. When she started loading her groceries into her car I rolled down the window and asked if she would like me to move. She said no but thanks. She finished loading stuff into her car, rolled the cart over to the cart drop-off area, and returned and said "That's a lovely car." Of course I replied thank you!

It's a daily occurrence.

My Graphie has gotten compliments at the grocery... Just the other day I drove up and parked in an end spot at Safeway and as I got out I was intercepted by an old geezer like me stepping out of his Subaru station wagon. Said what a great car I had and I agreed. But as usual I tried to find something positive to say about his ride too, which I pointed out has a similar motor arrangement to mine. This led to a discussion lengthy enough to inhibit our shopping! All part of the fun...
