Default I got killed!

By a 1993 SSEi. Go figure. I was cruising north on I-5, and it passed me. It had radar in the front and rear, so I tagged along. About 10 miles later, on the approach to a good hill climb just south of Salem, it bolted. I couldn't even come close to keeping up. Damn good looking car from the rear, and the modified exhaust sounded INCREDIBLE at 3k-5k rpm'*.

The girlfriend (will'* ride) hit 110 before a little scare slowed her down. I'll never chase her in my car while I'm in her Explorer again. It sucked.

Funny thing was, the car scared her silly. Half way up the hill, the check gauges note came up in the hud, and the driver info went nuts on her. She thought she broke my car, but it was just low on fuel, and racing up a hill in the triple digits made what little fuel there was go to the back of the tank!

At first I thought you were driving your car.

Did you teach her what those little buttons were for?

I knew there couldn't be another 93 SSEi with a sweet a$$ modified exhaust that could kill you in your car. It'* always nice to see what your car looks like as it drives by. Get the other perspective.

But I don't know if I'd trust someone else, even a g/f, to drive my car at 110mph. Maybe at normal speeds. I know my ex wasn't allowed to do that.

It'* all a matter of trust. Obviously Wren trust'* her a lot. But then again he'* got all those projectile type weapons to back up his wishes.

She was trying for 130

Yikes. I've only had the car over that 3 or 5 times myself.

Believe it or not, there are times I wish mine was still limited. Both for me and the GF. The temptation is HUGE. Since my record breaking run, I haven't been over 120. I saw where the limit MIGHT be, and that'* good enough. That century and a half mark is pretty respectable.

150 mph is amazing, I dabbled at 130 on Saturday and that was dirty fast...

To bad my car only goes up to 140 mph
