I find the Boxster to have less wind noise than the Miata or old BMW325i I had - I guess it's all relative.

I drove my 986 (original style Boxster) for over 4 hours straight on the interstate between 70 and 80 and found it to be quite comfortable.

Twin turbo V-6. Just to piss people off. It makes no sense, what I just said.

the chrome insert in the grill makes it look like it has braces and it needs the round tail lights

Yes, he owns the rights to VIN 001. I don't know if the color or options has even been designated yet. It was also a charity car...

Hendrick bought the car before the C7 for over a million...a 1968 Corvette L88, one of the actual Owens-Corning racing cars.

The winningest Owens-Corning car. They said Hendrick can design and detail his C7 how he wishes.

I figured the BatMobile would be big, but I definitely wasn't expecting that. Also, kinda surprised Pratt or someone of the like didn't take home the Green Hornet. I wonder how high Jackson's reserve was?
