Jimmy- Sounds great. Now I understand why you sold the 275. That is some tight traffic and had to be frustrating. The Dino and Daytona with CD ignition are much better suited to that kind of driving.

Thank you for your empathy, Taz. I don't know if you have seen other uploads I put on YT recently (they are all under jimmy6752 my videos), in some of them you can get the feel of the city driving, and they were taken at relatively light traffic hours too !!!

As much as I enjoyed and loved this 275, this car in it's inherent nature demands to be driven in anger to maike her truly happy. The sound, the feel, everything about it, simply more natural to be driven north of 4000rpm at least. It is as if she is asking to go faster and faster. As I mentioned before, the max speed on tollways allowed is 80kph. So if I go a little north of that at say 100kph, that means I can go all day at 3000rpm in fourth gear. Total frustration despite the joy of visceral feedbacks. It is even worse moving along regular streets. There's signals virtually every few hundred meters. That means I start moving, shifting up to say second or third,...then I must decelerate, brake and stop the next moment. This is not doing justice to this beautiful car. I am not a deserving owner for such a fine car. Sometimes I get so frustrated that I feel like I must move out of this country, for other reasons too. OH WELL,...thanx for listening to my rant, again. w/ smiles Jimmy

Jimmy- You need some wide open space vacation. Unfortunately, the cops nearly everywhere seem to be on a revenue enhancing binge, and it is hard to let one out without getting into trouble. Even true in NM with a land area like Germany, but only 2 million people total. They are even cracking down in Montana, which is an even bigger state with only 1 million in population.
