Here’s me thinking it’s a about to be a cautionary tale instead it’s comment on what I also do. So glad I’m not alone Grin

The car is the therapy and I’m guessing here cheaper than a therapist and a whole lot more fun Laughing

Absolutely. Also are there times when you haven’t driven it for a while, you get in, shut the door and just sit and look around the interior, breath in and smile before you fire up and head out?

A 911 should make you smile, even when driven often. Looking back as you walk away is part of the experience. Taking the odd picture too.

Yep me too will go outside for a smoke and cup of coffee and walk around the car and often turn and look when walking away , mind you I do the same to cute women so maybe its ingrained into us to admire a nice chassis and a great ride Floor Floor Floor Floor
