Trying to Test Drive a Corvette 
After the fun I had at the Porsche dealership, dealing with Chevy in trying to test drive a Corvette has been the complete opposite.

GM Canada has a form on their website you can fill out to request a test drive. I did that, and then waited a few weeks and got absolutely no response at all.

I did it again, choosing a different dealership, and they actually got back to me.

Unfortunately they said they can't get a car to test drive. They suggested I just buy one and, if I don't like it when it turns up in a few months, I can give it back.

I understand that they're selling like hotcakes and there aren't any just sitting around to be played with. What I don't understand is how GM can't have at least a few available somewhere that they can arrange to send to each dealership for scheduled test drives when needed.

Do people really buy a lot of cars this expensive without ever having a chance to try them out??

Today I Drove a Porsche For The First Time 
I'm not really sure what I can say about it. It was wonderful!

I drove a base model Boxster and a Cayman S. But were just sublime and I'm sure I could write about the tiny little details but there was one thing that stood above all others.

The grip!! My God!! The unbelievable amount of grip!! I went around highway on ramps and off ramps faster than I've ever done before and I don't think I was even close to pushing the limits of the cars.

All that was on winter tires!!

I've been a car enthusiast for a long time now. I'm very happy to know there's plenty out there still to experience and get excited about. What a fun day!!

That's the Spirit! 
Some guy just drove by me in a 350Z with the roof down.

I gave him a thumbs up.

He reciprocated.

Top down in January in Toronto. That's a proper Canadian! It brings a smile to my face. :)

The 2012 Porsche Boxster 
I've never liked the Boxster. I've always found it looked rather boring and seemed to be a 2nd rate Porsche for people who couldn't afford a 911.

I've just seen spy pics of the new one though, and it looks amazing!

I have hereby decided that if I'm made ridiculously wealthy through a lottery win this weekend, I will certainly buy this car as my daily runabout.
