I have taken a joyride in three cars: IowaMax (the import), Park Avenue (Gonneville), and the famed 8-ball. I will give you guys my thoughts on these cars.
My first joyride was the Park Avenue. Upon getting in, it was outrageously comfy. We got on the road, Brian gave it a bit of gas and it took off. My thought was "It'* not that fast" but I glanced over to the speedo and it was in the 80-90 range. Holy moley!
The PA is a smooth hot rod, We went on the highway (70 E) Brian gave it full throttle and we rocketed down the onramp VERY SMOOTHLY and we were in the 100 mph range. I was absolutely AMAZED. Brian even offered to let me drive her, I said no, no thanks. Why I told him I didn't trust myself enough (the truth is that if I drove her, I would come over to the dark side of Boost)
But maybe later on, if Brian offers again, I'll drive her. I have decided that if my car blows up (UIM) I'm going to scrap her and get a PA Ultra or something with a L67. Oh the */C whine may have been impressive but it felt upon deaf ears sorry Brian
The second was 8-Ball. Hehehehehehehehehe Man I'll tell you that car is the biggest Viagra I've ever seen and ridden in. I got in and Todd was turning around to exit KOA, that car rippled POWER at every small throttle touch and turn. If you've ridden a built musclecar, same thing. Todd took it out and floored it, it threw me back and the car gained speed like a rocket. We were going 30-35 then a few seconds (maybe 2-3 seconds) we were at 80-90. Oh my god......then the stupid *bleep bleep bleep bleep bleeping* troopers ruined the ride back to KOA. Very impressive Todd and I hope to ride her again so you really can flex her muscles.
Lastly was Matt'* IowaMax ( I call it IowaMax because it came from Iowa plus it'* catchy). I got in, nice. We got on the road, we accelerated to the speed limit (35 mph) and we were waiting for the new speed limit to come up (55) it was in third gear and he gave it plenty of gas and it zoomed away. I gotta admit, I was truly impressed. then Matt turned around and He floored it (he messed up the 1-2 shift) but I swear the tires barked a bit I swore I heard it. Then the car rocketed down the road, the speedo? I didn't look at it, I was admiring the blurring landscape. Matt, it'* a very nice car, I really liked it. It'* a very strong car, keep it and learn the 1-2 shift dude.
If any of you guys who WERE at CEBF or have ridden one of these machines, you may add your reviews/thoughts.
I didn't offer anyone a joyride because no one was interested in a lame L36
