My son made a mistake.
I meet a man today. As I was leaving my liquor store from buying a political incorrect product, I saw a yellow Porsche with a black truck lid... Next to it was a man. I started a conversion with him. He was wearing a very nice polo shirt with his name on it. Under his name was Products.
He said he sold after market things for Porsche cars. I told him it was a nice 911. He corrected me by telling me it was a 996. It looked like a 911. The car was owned by Porsche and sold it to him as new but with many miles on it. I think he got a good deal.
He said his black truck lid saved 10 pounds or so for the car. It made it faster. I said my car is too fast for me and if I lost 10 pounds from my belly, it would not cost so much. He laughed because his belly could lose more than 10 pounds. He named some race drivers from various tracks and races. He was a Porsche man and not BMW. He was not pleased with the BMW people. Those people did not like to play fair in his book.
Anyway, his battery was dead. I offered to use my car and the battery cable, which are in every car I control. Opps, my son does not have cables in his car, which I was driving.
Bummer, I could not jump start a 996. It did have a 6 speed but he did not want to pop the clutch.
My son will have to tell me why his car does not have battery cables on it when he comes home this Monday.
