A unique oppurtunity

Recommended Posts

Last Saturday presented a rare opportunity to have a garage full of Boxters and take some pictures.

My Brother was moving, so he entrusted me with the temporary storage of his 6,033 mile bought-new

1999 986 (the one with the hardtop on it).

After pulling it in the garage beside my white 16,000 mile 2001 S I noticed how little room the two

cars took up (this garage is 24' x 36' deep). I got out the tape measure and then backed both cars out.

Without even moving my tractor, I backed his car in along the wall and cranked it hard. It slotted in right

in front of my workbench with only one 3- point jockey. Then the test - I pulled in my Boxter, no sweat;

then my daily driver Grand Prix. Plenty of room. I must admit I was somewhat astounded as I have lived

here 12 years and never thought to try this before. This means that when my car goes to sleep for the

winter, I can put it in crossways and still get 2 other vehicles inside.

The final piece of the puzzle was when our friend Mark arrived to spend the day with his 20,000 mile Artic

Silver/Blue/Blue 2001 S. the Pontiac went back outside and Mark parked his car inside next to mine.

The weather was beautiful so I grabbed the camera while I had the chance. These 3 cars had never

been together before and since my brother had lived out-of-state we had never seen the white cars

side-by-side at the same time either. The stark contrast between his brilliant white 1999 and my Barritz

White 2001 (cue-ball white, as I call it) is easily visible in these photos.
