Yeah, I know it is not really "new" anymore. But today I went on the Santa Cruz mountains (really hills) to take some picures and I took the chance to take a couple of pictures of my NB.
So here you go:

wow...you have my car. i love it!!!!

did you get a package 1 or just buy the wind blocker?

that's the exact car i want, but it's hard to find a HM with black interior. does it get to hot with the black interior?

hopefully soon i'll be your NB twin :)

That's funny .. I was originally looking for the HM with the beige interior :) :) :) This is a package 1. I normally do not have the windblocker because I have a passenger on the back, it is in the pictures because I really wanted to try it for a day. Honestly I would not have bought it if it did not come with the car, it does not make a noticable difference. Keep in mind tough that I do not go really fast. Maybe on high speeds it makes a difference.

It does get hot with the black interior when the top is down and the interior is exposed to the sun, not so much with the top up. The day I took those pictures it was 98 F there on the hills and after one of the stops, it was really tough to sit back in the car.

Welcome!

WELCOME TO THE ORG!

Great shots of your vert!!!

My personal favorite is shot #1. Although with the right cropping, shot #2 would look great as a homepage pic.

I'll have to seek the area out the next time I'm up visiting my Son at SFSU.

Thanks ! I was 1/2 tempted to put one of them on the homepage, but there are so many nicer photos there :) :)

The area is Skyline Blvd. From Saratoga, CA take Higway 9 up until it hits Skyline, then turn right and enjoy the ride :)

I hope you don't mind...
I took picture #2 and cropped it to homepage specs.:)

Thanks for the location tip! I will definitely check it out.
Of course I do not mind ! Actually I quite flattered that you found the picture homepage-worthy :)

I feel so cool now :cool: :cool:
