Beast, I already have the manual printed (after modifications for Bonneville over the VW), bound, and an ID tag made for someone.

I work fast.

Hmm I should edit the title to say "How to Be a Good Backseat Driver" and print it then give it to my pops.

Oh god, he'* the worst backseat driver. If one of you NEBFers (from Apr 06) would have ridden with me, you'll understand. He b****es at everything I do.
According to him I do these following things:
1. Drive too fast
2.Take corners too fast (I disagree on this)
3. I follow too closely
4. I don't slow down for hills
5. I don't slow down for RR crossings (I only slow down for the unlighted RR crossings)
6. I take off too fast
7. I stop too fast
8. I'm easily distracted
9. I go with the traffic flow (he doesn't like it)
10. I violate every law at least once.

Those are according to him.

Well, duh!! If you're deaf, and he'* trying to talk to you while you're trying to drive, what does he expect....

Amen brother!
You know what I have to do? He'll tap or most of the time SHOVE my seat to get my attention, then I'll have to take my eyes completely off the road and turn around and look at him and all of this at 70-75 mph on a busy interstate. It'* a miracle I'm still alive.

Never again, will I drive with him in the backseat.
