I don't know how many times I have been on an international spy mission, with the beautiful Trixie Rochentiets in one arm and my other hand on the wheel of my 911 as I race down the cobblestoned streets of Barcelona, tires squealing, wind rushing by, followed by the ever closer "pop pop" of my adversary's 9mm as he closes in, desperate to recapture the plans for the top secret XRL-3000....and as the memories of last night's gin martinis fade into the rear-view, I think to myself....if only I had an additional 50 horsepower available, I might be able to effect the getaway, save the free world, and have my way with Trixie......alas....

But, as much as I would love to not only own a Porsche but also a Porsche with an extra 50 HP, I must regretfully inform you that I am not the person to whom your email is properly addressed, so I would ask you to check your email address and make sure it gets to the right person, because somewhere out there is a person who needs that extra rear wheel horsepower!


FOLLOWUP: This David bloke is a good sport at least. Here's his response to my email missive above: "AWESOME RESPONSE, you deserve a Porsche. Yes a minute or two later i figured out that i was prospecting you instad of responding to you.
Hope you catch those bad guys. DR."
