I will miss him. He was just on minute to win it. This is a shame.
I agree on the shame part. At 18 I could take a fast car on a marginal road to 120 and be comfortable. By 30 I noticed anything above 110 felt "loose" and less within my control. 36 years later I'll sometimes need to hit 90 to extricate myself from highway setup situations but those are rare.
About 20 years ago I needed a car fast and bought a used Mustang. It was not stock and was able to reach insane speeds faster than any car I've owned.
I have a lead foot but that Mustang went past my comfort levels fast and often. One day the accelerator linkage stuck and gave me a couple thrilling moments before I shut it off.
I gave the Mustang to the tow truck operator in exchange for being dropped off at the nearest car lot. He looked to be 18 so I figured it wouldn't kill him. He easily freed the jam but I wouldn't change my mind. I knew that car could kill me with one mistake.
Viva La Bam? seriously?
