Default Video of me and a service drive here in Toledo

Well.... since the I-280 bridge here in Toledo is still under construction, they've had this service drive open for a long while now. Basically, it'* a really curvy road underneath the bridge. 2 lanes each way with cement barriers at the side of the lanes. The speed limit is 35, usual traffic go'* 25, I average between 65-70 mph through usually. This is the route I take to and from a local car buddies (W and G body, and an Oldsmobile car collector) place.

Anyways, photobucket really screwed the quality of the video up, but you get the general idea. I'll try to shoot a daytime video sometime, so you can see the barriers and the bridge overhead better. It'* a pretty cool, twisty curvy drive!

Oh and reason 19,832,987 to upgrade from grandpa suspension!

i love semi trucks up north that have 18 million wheels.

You gotta wonder what it would cost for a full tire job... Likely many more times the value of my entire car....


Oh and cool video.

I guess I need to post up a daytime video so you can really tell how close the barriers are. It'* a pretty sweet road to take fast!
