Newbie

Hi I'm new to this FORUM thing, so bear with me. I am 26 yrs old, married for almost 2 yrs and have no kids. I have Muscular Dystrophy, and was diagnosed when I was 16...so you can say this is my 10 year anniversary! I try to participate in the Jerry Lewis telethon as much as possible. I live in West Des Moines, Ia and am a Big NASCAR fan! I yes am a Jeff Gordon Fan, but I've been a fan of his for over 10 yrs and I'm not going to jump either.
I also like the Dodges......my favorite Dodge Driver is Sterling Marlin. I recently got a chance to go to my first Nascar Race in Chicago this year, and am going to the IRL race in Sept. I have a 97 Dodge Intrepid 3.5 with 96k. My parents had a 96 Concorde which is basically the same thing, and needed a car. So I talked my wife into test driving the Trep. She fell in LOVE with it. The only bad thing is its BLACK...shows every scratch!

I also try to participate in political things too. I am a strict Republican and try to go to the Caucus every chance I can. I was raised in a Baptist Church, so hence very conservative! But I haven't gone to church in a few years, but still carry the values.

Well anyway...I look forward to talking with some of you and maybe meeting some of you in the near future.

Welcome Pepsi. You seem to be a car guy so maybe you can clear up a little debate we are having. Do you know if Porsche makes a truck? I thought they made a truck, but others think not. Maybe it was just an idea and they never produced it. Do you know if Porsche makes a truck or not?

Anyway, again welcome to the boards.

Don't worry, I'll be a strict left-wing socialist and a secular humanist, so we'll balance perfectly!

Its more of a wagon than an suv or a truck. It looks kinda cool. I guess its no different than the pt cruiser. And I like the Cruiser, so I may like this new Porsche. When people think of Porsche the sports car all ways comes to mind, so I dont know if this thing is going to do well or not.:bigsmile:

Welcome to the site!!

It's called the Porsche Cayenne.

If a SUB is going to have a Porsche name, I'm glad it looks like that. I think that'll roll into the turns much better than the typical boxy bretheren of past suv's

That does look kinda cool! I'd buy it over an EXPLORER any day, but that will be way out of my price range.

I was wondering the same thing, until I saw that he said something inside the quote, instead of after it.

This is what he said:

"That does look kinda cool! I'd buy it over an EXPLORER any day, but that will be way out of my price range."
