    Yes, but not so much the newer models with electric steering and paddle shifters.

      The old school seems to concur. I've spent all of 20 minutes in a 70s 911. Mighta been an S - I forget. I was the passenger and we were barely going 60. Nothing else sticks in my memory. So manny tranny and steering are kinda meaningless to me. I do know the experts all concur PDK is better and if they have issues with the electric power smearing, they can deal with it.

        My brother in law has a 2007 Boxster. His 2004 had major engine issues about three years ago. A friend of mine raced an air-cooled 911 in SCCA. Another owner cautioned me not to buy one since it seems the dealer's cash register only works in $1,000 increments. I believe they are generally well built automobiles. Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, Skoda, and other auto companies are now owned by Volkswagen AG.

          Sports cars, planes, boats and women are more fun when owned by others.

          Just sayin.

              Me not so much, but I like Les Paul's. As long as you don't do something dumb to em. like put robot tuners on em.

              If I had 100,000 grand plus to put towards a car.
              I have my head examined and move, Probably buy a pick up truck. and be up a few bucks.

              You think so, Mike? I've had a chance to try out a few fast cars over the years and I can tell you, that stuff is addictive.

                  That stand's a little gaudy and gauche (it reminds me of the leg lamp in A Christmas Story), but what a beautiful guitar!
