Thank you for having been so patient while waiting for this board to be set up.
Our sincere thanks to Stefan who, again has taken the task of Webmaster and has devoted a lot of time and effort into the development of the board.
Work on this board is not finished. You will see additions and gradual changes as needs dictate and time allows.
We hope that this will soon become your home page.
Happy Porsche-ing,

I have felt lost without the board whether I was reading or participating. The other forums around are okay but the old one was special as I'm sure this one will be.

Driving down Saturday the 27th from the cold of New York to my winter home in Boynton Beach. The Box (my baby) is already in the garage having sent it down 3 weeks ago. I have made it a point to go over to visit Pedro and hopefully other Florida board members.

You are now THE MAN for Boxster's Pedro. Thanks for being willing to undertake this. I hoist one in your honor sir. smileys with beer I think you need to make a run to the left coast at some point in the near future. I'm sure there's a certain singer that would love to light one, and hoist one, with you too.
... that certain singer? realy??



Mary and I miss you guys on the left coast.
it would be a blast to see you all gain!

That was on very nice West Coast BoxsterFest.
Thanks, Larry



Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Thanks to all who have resurrected this board and community. Even though I have gone to the dark side, I still call this place home. It is the best Porsche related board on the web!
It is even more than that to me. It is the best gathering of "mostly" like minded people for me. Glad to see you made it Todd. I'll have to come up and show you how to drive that rear engined monster some time! smiling smiley

Hi All

Great to see a new community developing with the spirit of the old PPBB.

Love to see no religion and politics in the rules.

Getting ready to read about my favorite cars and post once in a while.

Thanks Pedro!!

Note I think that PPBB should be added to the spell checker dictionary!

winking smiley

Great to me connected back to the collective

WOW AND SPELL CHECK TOO
It's great to be back. I've even got a new handle which better reflects my location.

It was -27C with a windchill of -40C/F here this morning. A bit nippy.

Alex Eliuk

PS. Love the spell check.
So, Alex, at those temperatures, I guess you're just about ready to trade in your shorts for long pants and maybe even consideing putting the top up on the Boxster. grinning smiley

crazy canucks!

You're right, Robert. I draw the line at -5C (23 F for the southerners), after that it's just too chilly to have the top down. grinning smiley
He has a couple off businesses here in Edmonton with offices in Vancouver. He keeps a couple of Porsches at each location. He drives top down year-round. even at the temperatures we are now getting. He's the former president of our local PCA branch (aptly named Polar) and still holds a position on the executive. Since most of us put our cars away in the winter, he calls us wussies. Compared to him, I guess we are. He just bought a gorgeous white Boxster Spyder. My guess is that the top will never go on.

Alex
The top is up and the car is now in winter hibernation. Since I have a plastic window ('01) I don't put the top down below +5C. However, if it's colder than that and the top is already down, I'm good to go. I love driving around the city when it's below zero with the top down. Not only is the car comfy with the heater and seat warmers, I enjoy the stares of disbelief I get from the non-enthusiasts. I just grin and wave.

Yes, the top is up on mine now too and I've also traded the shorts in on long pants. We did have some nice days with the temps just below freezing a couple of weeks ago. I drove my wife to work and put the top down as soon as I dropped her off. It really is nice and comfortable around town when there is no wind. I just had the heater on and didn't even need the bun warmer on. Felt great to be driving along surrounded by frost covered cars and only I could enjoy the nice sunshine. smiling bouncing smiley

Mine's been snoozing since Monday.

Thank you for all who've put the time and effort into standing this site up. I look forward to a helpful, constructive dialog.

I've felt so lost lately...great to see this board up!
I looked at the other Boxster boards. There is no substitute.
Thank you very much, Pedro. I needed this board after the last week . I was supposed to be on a month long cruise but my wife fill and broke her femur near the hip in Tunis last week. Just got back after spending a week following her surgery. I have been sleeping sleeping in a Tunisian hospital on a sofa the entire time. What a frustrating week - hardly anyone spoke any English and my high school French is very rusty - but we are back!

Boxster & Porsche content - I was amazed how many high dollar cars I saw in Tunisia (we were in the "Beverly Hills" of Tunisia - Marsa). I saw several Ferrari's, Bentley's, RRs, a couple of Turbo Porsches and a very nice looking black 987.

Good to be back!

Thanks again, Pedro!

Mike,

A speedy recovery for your wife!

Pedro and Stefan, Chuck would definitely be proud. You honor his memory as well as all the hard work of Rob and the others who made PPBB so very special, while at the same time creating a new community.

You guys are the best. Can't wait to see you again at BRBS 13!

And it's so satisfying to see all the familiar names again. I was really worried that this valued community was going 'off the grid' permanently, lol.

Thanks for giving us a voice again! There is a wealth of accumulated knowledge here.

It's so nice to see many familiar names ....... I haven't been on PPBB much due to school, but that's over in 2 weeks. Hopefully will be around a little more.

It was a loss when PPBB went down but the "family" continues with Pedro and Stephan. Thanks again, I know it's alot of work.

Thank you Pedro and everyone else who had a hand in bringing this up. I have missed the old ppbb dearly. Thank you everyone for your hard work.

Thanks Pedro ... my '99 986 tucked away for the winter is sleeping a little easier now that this resource is on line!
And a great big thanks from Australia too - though I don't know how many Aussies frequent this Board.
Perhaps I'm unique.....
Merlin is an Aussi as well and contributes a lot here - you are in good company!!!!
Great job Pedro!

Thanks

Thanks Pedro! Are you accepting donations to keep this board going?
... since we have some generous sponsors which will allow us to cover expenses.
We may even have some surprises in the near future.
Stay tuned.

Too much white stuff here to get the car out sad smiley Besides it's all put away for the foreseeable future.
Glad to see things are up and running. Good Luck!!!
I only read the old board. However with the "new' board, I was inspired to jump in and post pictures of my two Porsches last Friday.

Good show!
