A nice Saturday late afternoon drive.

I learn something about those automatic transmissions in “fast” cars. A dude was driving a SL500 or SL600 AMG. It is hard to read sometimes. Anyway, as we were going about 50 mph on a surface street, I move to the right lane and very slowly moved even with him. He looked at me and floored it. Opps, one should be in the proper gear. I was. I passed him, which displease him. FUN!

This is one of the many reasons I like a manual transmission.


12 cylinders or walk

I was out for a drive in the Boxer last night and had the same thing happen. The challenger was a large silver Benz and he definitely was not pleased first being caught and then passed by a "antique". The look on his face when I pulled away from him coming out of a roundabout can only be described as "ugly".
