lol..reminds me of my dad..hes in his mid 60s now so I guess hes getting old..anyway he would not go past 3000RPM (anyone who remembers HARO'* dashoverlay)..well this is what it was like lol.

My mom on the other hand currently is employed and has money and is trying to find a GTP or SSEi...I told her to buy a L36, she pretty much told me to f* off and said "oh I need the supercharger" All I did was let her drive it on a 2 lane highway and try out the passing...yeah even for a S1 it does go pretty good.

Sadly my dad bought a '81 Mercedes Diesel that gets like 45mpg instead..will never understand how a guy who at one point purchased a corvette new in the 70s, and several other fast cars...resorts back to 100hp pos. hmm....maybe my mom can kick his a$$

The grandpa in question is my dad and he'* 77 years old. He use to drive fast all the time. He taught me how to drive and how to be a defensive driver. It made me laugh when he said that because in his younger day this car would be right up his alley. I guess years of my mother telling him to drive slower has taken affect on him. It is funny because whenever I ride with them he will still speed but eventually Mom gets onto him and asks how fast he'* going. My mother use to like fast cars/bikes- she once stood up on the back of a bike while going very fast That is something I would never think of doing. I guess age makes you slow down :(

actually, gotta be totally honest here, between our 00 SLE and 00 SSEi the SLE is MUCH peppier around town and has better throttle response. The SSEi is only faster when it hits boost. Otherwise, it feels much slower.
