It was nice here as well and I had the race car out to bed in brakes. It was actually a bit to nice and snow melt flooded some roads. I had to turn around twice! What kind of fun car (or something else?) are you thinking of?

Beautiful ride your neighbor has. Has he taken you for a ride in it yet?

I legit have no idea. I need toget out a test drive a few. I have been considering an aston convertible, Porsche 911, and a bunch of other stuff, while waiting out winter and hoping to see what the mid engine is going to be. I sold my 427 vert on a whim last fall and regret doing so but that's life.

The owner of my company has one of those...

Last weekend the forecast for yesterday and today was beautiful; warm, dry and sunny. I had planned on fetching the Z06 from storage Wednesday night after work but each day the forecast got worse and it turned out being rainy and cold so it's still sleeping. **** you, weatherman!

Now the forecast for late next week is the same; sunny, dry, warm.....we shall see.....

It's alright I guess, but it's no C4 or Black Widow pickup.

To many great choices out there now.
