Re: Time for hats?...

... I've had quite a few requests for new PB caps.
It's been over 5 years since we last offered them and those that bought them tell me that they'd like to refresh theirs.
Last time it took a loooooong time to sell them and we carried the inventory for too long.
In order to keep the price down I need to have 200 made.
These are supposed to support the board and move fast.
So, who would be interested?
If I get enough interest I'll run another batch.
I suspect that the price for these will still be under $30 as the last batch was.
I'd like to again make them in orange, black and pink.
Please let me know if interested. SEND ME A PM IF INTERESTED>

Here's the link to the last batch from 2011:

Happy Boxstering,

Steve Guards Red 1999 I'm not a race car driver, but I play one in 2nd and 3rd gear :D
Orange. Always orange.
... will be made.
There's no interest sad smiley
Over 120 PB members have read the post, yet only 5 replied with interest.
Very disappointing.
Frankly, if there's this little interest in supporting PB, I wonder why should I keep footing the bill?
Happy Porscheing,
Pedro

I (and I'm sure others who appreciate this place) would be happy to contribute $30 to help keep the light on here.

My wife and I still have and wear our PB hats and just don't need another at this point.

Let's hear from others who'd be willing to chip in.
... I brought up the hats because I figured that those who bought them before would need to refresh them due to use or fading or ...
It doesn't have to be hats, but there will be no chipping in.
That's what I founded this board on:
• No contributions
• No Subscriptions
• No Fees
• Very small number of commercial banners

People who are purchasing tires are not going through our TireRack banner, so PB gets nothing.
It's been over 18 months that we haven't received anything from that banner, so why keep it?

The one entity that I MUST thank is BumperPlugs.com who has been there for us since day 1. Thank you Eric.

Happy Bpoxstering,
Pedro

how about I buy a hat for one of your grandkids? smiling smiley
sorry pedro, i still have my orange one don't wear those kinds of caps too much anymore.
i don't buy tires from tirerack either. but i would be happy to contribute in some other way.
i know you founded the board with those four principles but how about some ads? i wouldn't mind if it pays the bills. google ads might be worth it. just a thought.
whereas the boxster attracted a different kind of owner at the beginning, i fear that it's now just another commodity. porsche isn't the "little guy" or the David to Goliath anymore. now it's just another big corporation that makes SUVs, station wagons, sedans, oh, a some nice sports cars. i don't think it has the dedicated following like say Lotus does. thems the times i guess.

IMHO, there is still time to realize the potential of this once thriving Board....innovate & survive; stagnate and go the way of the Dodo bird.

I would be interested in a black variety.
