Did he check your log book? It sounds like a dot truck?

Well it's good you gave it up then and will be with us for awhile longer I know someone that used to drive stupid fast and was a hazard, rode with him twice and decided it wasn't worth it anymore.

Then he got a boat Only time my husband has ever been afraid on the water, and that's saying alot since Mike has a crazy side that used to scare the crap out of me.

Luckily this person met a nice woman, got married and settled down. She honestly saved his life and probably some innocent persons too.

In reality 80 isn't that fast, just keeping up with traffic on most days. Unfortunately it is speeding on our highways though, so at some point it may bite me in the butt

Might have. Mine didn't have windows. But if it did there were large. That's why I liked it. Very good viability.

Use to have to race against the Saab's in B Showroom Stock in SCCA. Fast on the straights but we could kill them in the braking and turns in our Sirocco. Way less weight. The Saab's had so much torque they would burn the inside tire on the turns exit and we would fly by.

My Saab did have a bit of under steer. But the car was so darn tough you can cheat on the cage. It did stupid good on dirt and snow.

My wife and I use to do night road rallys. Those were fun. 130 mph on two lanes of dead dark black top and only a page of directions in her lap. We did pretty good on those.

VW's were always did good. They have very good balance. Very light weight but needed heavy cages if you wanted to survive a roll

I have been trying to get my wife to do these stock fun rallys in her Mini Cooper but she freaks out when it skids. I took her to Laguna seca when she first got it just to show her what that car can do. But when she was behind the wheel we just drove around like a Mary go round

Yea I know. My wife could never understand stick or why anyone would race. When she learned what I did in the marine corps she freaked out. But she's was a good girl friend. She flew to Germany with her own money while I was hospitalized there she stayed there and took care of me. That's rare.
