Yesterday's excitement for the day (Porsche fans alert!)

My brother-in-law has a high-end used car business that deals in the lots of Porsches and BMWs with the occasional Maserati orr Ferrari, etc. A couple of times a year my partner helps his brother deliver a newly bought or sold car and on yesterday's delivery run the car got to spend the night in our garage - but only after we took a test spin with me at the wheel. My, oh, my was that ever fun! All of my scorn for gas-guzzling environmental sins was thrown out the window for that half an hour.

    Now that's a righteous ride, Sara. In the late 80's and early 90's, I owned a couple of Porsches....neither of which were the calibre of this car. I know it was a fun time for you.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Yes, Tom, it was really fun and I didn't even drive very fast, max 60 mph/100kph - but the acceleration was great!. But when we were on the highway and my partner was driving 200kph (125 mph) I was hanging on for dear life and screeching "slow down, slow down!". Basically I'm a weenie. ;)

    Turning into a car aficionado, Sara.

    Porsche makes very fast cars, but you don't have to drive fast.
