Valentines Day was like any other day until my girlfriend greeted me at our lunch date with a very small gift wrapped box. It was about the size of a ring box but a quick shake produced a jingle that didn’t sound like a ring. They say good things come in small packages and as I slowly pulled off the ribbon and peeled away the wrapping paper, I was certainly filled with anticipation as to what the contents were.
Prying off the lid I had to do a double take as concealed within the tissue paper were what looked like a gleaming silver object. I pulled it out and was stunned to recognize the world-famous Porsche emblem on a key chain that held a key bearing the same likeness.
Needless to say, I was speechless. My girlfriend broke the silence by telling me she knew I had always admired and wanted to drive a Porsche, so she rented one for me to drive around town as a special Valentines Day gift. We probably finished lunch a little quicker than usual and then she walked me to where the car was parked. Gazing upon the jet black convertible sports car, my heart began to pound and it was quite a thrill opening the door and settling in behind the wheel.
Now a Porsche rental for Valentines Day was a home run. We put the top down spent the rest of the day tooling around Phoenix and the surrounding desert. I felt like a king for a day and it was one of the most fun experiences of my life. I especially got a kick out of watching heads turn on the Phoenix streets as I sped past in a sleek black Porsche with a woman seated next to me who is pretty easy on the eyes as well.
My girlfriend said she had the inspiration to pull this off when she learned there is a company offering exotic car rentals in Phoenix, AZ and learned that my favorite luxury sports car, the Porsche Boxster, was among their rental fleet. She visited their luxury car rental website and sent them an email explaining the details and asking if it would be possible to make it happen. The rental company was outstanding, responding to her email inquiry within an hour and getting everything set up for the rental only two days in advance!
How it worked was the company made her the primary renter and she added me as a second driver so she wouldn’t need to ask me for the information and ruin the surprise. All they needed from me was my license number, expiration. date and car insurance info which they were able to take the day the Valentine surprise was sprung.
The process was flawless. They dropped it off for free and we were driving my dream car 30 minutes later. We had 100 miles included and thought we would go over and she was prepared to spend the 75¢ per extra mile but we were under, and we drove it everywhere! We had it ready to return with a full tank for the rental company to pick it up again the next day. Would I be pushing my luck to start dropping hints about a Ferrari or BMW a few months before my birthday?
