Glad you're in Chicago......between the 2 of us, there wouldn't be any asphalt left.

This car is my daily driver so I tend to take it easy on it, I do hit the pedal when I need to but when I get more fast stuff done to it that is when I will run it more often. I hate to lose so I don't try to start races now.

Josh, I know you were scared But your not supposed to defile the Bonnie with ****... Shame on you Josh... Will, make sure he wears a diaper next time... JK...

Yeah, you could be on the interstate and nail it, it will go into second gear and run it till it almost hits the redline.... Don't you love how they run to the mark? And has Josh ever driven hie own car yet? ( Permit possibly )


Yeah well any one who rides with him will **** their pants. Will is the old fart who needs diapers. Yeah I have my license. I love that car. It goes all the way to 5500rpm'* before shifting.

I drive on I-95 between Fredericksburg and Washington, DC M-F. Isn't the speed limit on that 95 or is that the route number?

The middle option. I rarely rev the car above 2500rpm or so. I try not to go more than 10mph over the speed limit, as well. Gas is a $1.60/gal around here, and I'm sick of having to dress up and appear in court for speeding tickets.

Once in a while, though, I just can't keep my foot from flattening the gas (usually when a buzzing Honda is zooming around, just asking for it)

Steady ole boy, steady, not yet....okay, sickem!

Actually, I drive sensibly until provoked or board. That option wasn't available so I opted for the occational rice crispy breakfast, er...I mean the occational thumping of a rice crispy bar, er...I'm hungry!....Never mind, I'm going back to counting my boston baked beans.

Number 3 for me! Old age, kids, and wife have slowed me down a little, but when provoked (& it doesn't take much), I like to make rice crispies too! It'* also hard to really thrash a daily driver that I spend almost 20K on until it depreciates a little more (bean counter lingo).
