Sad days when its sunny and all you want to do is go for a nice drive and have a bit of fun but are forced to drive a volvo instead

I decided at the start of the year to build my own double garage at the back of the house because i was getting fed up of just leaving my 911 on the drive for seagulls to ruin my freshly wash paint work. This however has made me have to move it to my parents house while work is going on (so it doesn't get damaged)but its a nightmare to get to so i just don't get time to get it out very often. I had been using it as my only and everyday driving car which makes it all the worse than I'm using it one a month Sad Sad

Been there done that took over two years of hell without a Porsche, but seeing the car parked in the heated garage on a winters night, or felltling while it's p!ss!ng down make it all worth while Thumb
