Take a look at we're driving for the week. I'm here in Palm Springs, CA for a conference and decided to rent a fun car for a change. Rented from Hertz before they sell them all off. It is a fun car that is for sure but not quite as quick as the Cobra. We had a whole lot of fun driving it over here from San Diego through the mountains. I know we will be spending some more time on that road before the week is out.

Just meet me out here and you can take it for a spin on the company's dime:D

Here is a picture of the road we have been having all the fun on. Nice and twisty and turney.

Well number one is the mere fact we don't have any mountains:D Landfills don't count as a mountain :rolleyes: We used to have some fun roads in Seminole County but the powers to be decided to straighten them all out and make them boring.

I've got absolutely nothing to do until 5:00pm today. So I'm going to give the GT-H a beating:D

Heather's so cool...I mean, who else's better half posts on this board?

Hell, Greg and I are still hoping for a woman like that!

Bry, you make me ill (in a good way of course). Be safe, and watch out for those coyotes. Ungawah!

Now I'm confused:D

I'll be home safe and sound!

I had a whole bunch of fun on that road today (SR 74). Made 4 round trips consisting of 22 mile trip each time and burned up 3/4 of a tank of gas at $3.56 per gallon:eek: I found that the revlimiter is set to just under 6,000 rpm's:D I hit 100 mph a few times and only scared myself one time going down hill. It seems you can gain some additional speed when gravity works against you (in this case). The front pushed out a little on rough pavement when entering a 180 degree turn a little too fast. Needless to say if I had run off the road it would have been a long way down topped off by a hard landing. I had to pull over and check my shorts after that one:D After that experience, I did slow down a tad;)

Here are a few additional pictures....
