Feels solid . like you could get out and walk.

I regularly take it up over 100mph or so on back roads - straight stretches.

There is a thread here about my godson taking his GT up to about 180. He thought he more left.

Here it is:

I have been up to 120 mph (blowing the dust off on 281). It feels like nothing. And sooo easy getting there.

I guess the Top Speed thread snuck by me back in June. That was fun to read. I can't believe the dude who maxed the speedometer at 200 mph. I didn't think that that was possible. Looks like these cars are faster than advertised.

Always full of surprises, MasWoman.

Feels pretty slow afterwards, huh?

Like the old Peggy Lee song... "Is That All There Is ?"

How about those Europeans?
Thats why I told the 2011QP transferee to ship the car over.

It would be fun to unwind the QP on proper roads without fear of being locked up. Europe still has opportunities to do that, but then again there are many places in the mountain states and desert where I'm sure there are nothing but coyotes and 20 miles of visibility. However, if you crash out there, it might be weeks before anyone would notice.

With my luck, I would hit an armadillo at full speed.

Umm....why not take it to the track for 1 day. Most tracks offer exotic days with like minded individuals (none racers). And like most the majority are not seasoned track drivers. This is in a controlled environment and you can let it breathe with other weekened warriors.

I went with the FCA chapter - Ferrari dudes and cleared some cobwebs off my engine ... maybe even a few loose honeycombs from the cats.

Japonais --- hahaha ---



I hope it hasn't affected your social life...


I was trying to dig up some old threads for what appears to be a group of more 'gearheads' than I am used to....
Nothing wrong with that !!...



But I am interested in how my 'debadging' goes over in current times...


I was actually pulled in at the border so the agents could open & inspect the car !!!
All markings were off the next day ----hair blower removal


Wonderful to see/hear you again... law business still kicking?


I live in the Dom Republic these days
Hunt up Isuzu M-UX... not available in the 1st world
