In fact, I managed to get through the day without once unlimbering the Superwinch – to my dismay, I admit.

Sunday, Alex helped me put away the Christmas decorations and asked if, as a reward, we could take out the Lotus Elise and bomb around on some of Oregon’s excellent two-laners along the Barlow Trail. “Of course,” I said – and if the track-sized battery in the Lotus hadn’t died (maybe I should have plugged in the battery charger after all), we would have. Instead, the 2000 Boxster S was pressed into duty.

I’ve been thinking of selling the Boxster and perhaps getting another SC, simply because I miss the vintage, visceral experience the SC offers. But Alex picked a twisty route, the sunny 40-degree weather was a delight with the top down, windows up and seat heaters on. It was comfy, warm and made all the right sounds above 4,000 rpm.

So let me ask you for your advice. Keep the Boxster S (worth $14,000, I figure), or sell it and buy an SC (probably $16,000 for a coupe you would want to own)? I’ll look for your comments below.
