    My Step daughter is turning 17 this sunday, she had a rough road starting last November when she had to get a tumor removed from her brain. She was having seizers and we found a tumor, so december it was removed, she had to have her long beautiful hair shaved off. She's taken it all like a trooper. So for her fighting for her life and coming out on top I got her this 1997 Porche Boxer in mint condition.
    One owner, original 102,000 miles, the owner had it covered up in his shop and it hadn't been drove in a year.
    There is nothing wrong with this car, no dings, no scratches, leather interior is like new. Heck the guy had another porche under another cover beside this one, I didn't dare peek under it, lol
    I went to go look at his 1997 BMW Z3 he had for sale, but when I saw this and he let me drive it, I knew it was the perfect birthday gift for my precious angel. So this sunday we are throwing her a suprise birthday party, definately gonna be a kodak moment !
    Enjoy fella's, hopefully she'll let her dad drive it every once in awhile.. :D

    I gotta admit that when I first saw the pic and the first sentence my first thought was shallow and typical. But I caught myself and realized that maybe there was a bit of jealousy to that thought. After reading a bit more I really started to feel shallow for thinking what I thought! Ugg
    Anyway, glad to hear that your daughter pulled through the ordeal. Man, I know, first hand, how emotionally draining it is to have a loved one go through it! I'm glad it's a done deal for you all and what a great way to celibrate the victory over the tumor! However, you're very lucky she didn't have a heart attack when you gave her the key! My goodness, she must have gone bonkers when she saw that car! ;) Congrats!

    Yeah I didnt want to come across like I was boasting...
    As for what she did when she saw it, she hadnt yet, we have a suprise birthday for her this sunday, we wrapped a big red bow on it, its hidden in the shop, we have video and camera's setup for her peeing on herself moment.
    Here's the funny thing, I bought my wife a new SS Camaro today and traded my truck in on a new jeep Wrangler, my daughter thinks she is keeping the old honda, she couldn't break a smile seeing us with our new toys, needless to say she is peeeeeeed off, lol
    Sunday she will have a big suprise and take back all those mean things said about us to her friends ;D

    Oh yeah, she's surely going to faint when she sees that instead of the honda. I see an "americas funniest home video" contender coming!
