I am going to have to watch myself though. There is a reason or two I tend to drive slow.
For most of my life, I was a speed demon. I used to get pulled over even when I was not speeding so the officers could remind me to drive slow.
So, I made myself drive slow always.
But now that I pretty much must drive fast? I have started to.
And OMG the need for speed addiction is back.
When I am striving to drive in the power bands? Look out.
This newer Civic SI tried to pass me and I just laughed.
He never had a chance.
If I go balls out, I go balls out.
Most people do not really understand their cars and how to get most out of them.
My Nissan is rated at 115 HP and 108 Torque.
Those numbers are pretty low.
But it is light.
And it has a manual trans and a tach. By managing the gears, and RPMs well I can dust much more powerful cars unless driver knows how to drive.
If I find what I seek, I will be unbeatable.
I don’t bob and weave in delivery.
And I don’t speed. But I can get up to speed real fast.
I don’t pretend I am on a race track.
I have literally flown in cars.
I don’t really recommend it for you.
I will continue to drive like a grandpa mostly.
I have no desire to fly.
Not literally anyway.
Tow truck driver looked at car, then at telephone pole, fence post, hill and then me. Then did it all again.
The fellow then asked me, “How did you miss the telephone pole?”
“And the fence?”
“I flew over it.”
“Bo and Luke Duke he is.”
That is what they said.
They are crazy.
Bo and Luke Duke
See, they all thought I was some kind of hero.
They all thought they were gonna die most likely.
I had no plans on dying then.
I had no brakes.
The brakes failed and well I did what I had to.
I don’t ever want to do it again.
