    Sadly my verbal abilities are even worse than my driving skills. That said the 25 year old design is magical.

    The perfect 2 car garage imho, beautiful Mercedes luxury tourer and a convertible sports car. Throw in something like a ducati streetfighter and it's everything I'd ever need!

    Nice post! The Boxster is a brilliant drivers car. Had mine for 5 years. The only thing better would be an electric Boxster. And I hope Porsche won't bother wasting money paying a famous film music composer to make up a fake engine sound for it. Sure we'll miss the sound of the flat six that has been around for nearly 100 years, but we'll get over it and rejoice on the new superior car...

    Used to do that myself, there is literally nobody out there at 6-8AM on a Saturday morning 😁

    Used to go for a day long hike after the spin. Miss doing both.

    Looks like a nice diy project unkel..are you planning any ev upgrades to it?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,633 ✭✭✭Lorddrakul

    @unkel Interesting project.

    What's the battery capacity? Has much been done to lighten the car? Anything chucked or stripped to that end?

    You’re not giving much away with that pic but I’d guess at a browning

    Not far off at all.

    Miroku MK38 Grade III. A heavy gun but good for everything from clays to duck.

    Just thinking about that kind of effort has exhausted me 😲 Fair play 👍

    Oh, they're all quite lovely - the Beretta 692 is classic and modern at the same time.

    I've had the Miroku for aboiut a decade - it's fine for the amount of shooting I do. I'm on the lookout for a nice 30" side by side for shooting on my brother-in-law's land (maybe an AYA). He has a Ruger rifle of some sort (and a Sig Sauer, which isn't for hunting animals).

    I also have a black and Gold Tag that goes well with the kit.

    I will have to find a photo of both together..
