    @Porsche Please tell me more about your racing sim? I've been thinking of building one myself!

    Looks like a Ferrari seat on his too. I would have thought a Porsche seat would have been used!

    Steve - The rig is manufactured out of 80/20 aluminum extrusion by 4Play Racing. Comes as a kit based on your specification. The steering wheel & pedal box are by Thrustmaster. I already had the Ferrari carbon seat, so decided to go with the Ferrari 599xx wheel. Yes - I would have preferred to go with a Porsche set up but I didn't have another use for the Ferrari seat - plus it's beautiful.


    I also went with the Playstation 4 Pro as I'm a big fan of the Gran Turismo series & the soon to be released GT Sport version should be incredible. Samsung 4K TV.

    Years ago my brother wanted me to get an xbox so we could play some fishing game online. He was carrying on all excited that we could be virtually fishing off the same boat. I was on the phone with him looking out the window at the lake. I just said "I'm just going to do real fishing instead"

    So any chance that Porsche Spyder came from Canada???  It's a pretty crazy coincidence!!

    Yup sure did and Thank you! 


    Funny thing is we weren't even looking for a car. Took her old car in for an airbag recall and while we waited she was looking at the Escalades.  I told her we already have an Expedition to tow the boat so she started looking at the CTS and the XTS. 


    Went home w/one. Damn!
