Anyway, it was a momentary thought and maybe if the car were the perfect spec I would have pursued it, but it isn't...so I didn't.
I think I would make the same decision if I had no garage. That really does factor into my choice of cars these days.

The garage/no garage thing? I mean I hate that but it doesn't really factor into my thinking beyond being annoyed with it literally every day. But the only thing it really prevents me from doing is buying something truly stupid like a Sierra Cosworth or 928 that actually would have to live in the garage.

The Boxster has lived outside for nearly 12 years. It's not ideal but as long as you're reasonably diligent about covering it it's not that bad.

I've even moved on from making jokes about it.

This is just for old times sake.

But, really, I'm a little sad for you.
