I'm not getting out to Arizona any time soon (especially not just to look at a car), so thanks for the link. It was good to see that thread again, and it looks even better than I remember.

But damn, to see that in person.

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is cold




YKYAEM when you recently used your car's seat heater... for the second time! And on HIGH, no less! Shameful.


(To be honest, I usually pre-heat the cabin with a hair dryer, but was away from a plug, and it was cold!)

Working from home! I'm 4 weeks in and I've used 1/4 tank. I've used more fuel for mowing than driving.

YKYAEM when you go to a tuning forum and nobody can seem to figure out why you'd want to pull full from the fueling tables.

...when you can do 0-60 in 4 seconds and still drive 55 (or less) on the highway.

...when you look for ways to reduce power in the lower gears, so you aren't accidentally shredding your 50PSI LRR tires.

YKYAEM when (being essential) you resent the stay at home orders because now there's no one to draft.

But you make lemonade by driving under the speed limit.
