Skiing the powder
- Nov 17, 2015
It's actually going to take me quite a while to feel comfy with the computer Nannies turned all the way off; the wheel base is just a little bit shorter that I would like, and as the song goes, "I ain't as good as I once was."So true. I've got (very limited) experience with two Oregon courses: Portland International Raceway and Grass Valley. SO different, and each suited best to a different type of car.
Too easy? Sell that Vette and find yourself a Viper!
And this surprises you how, exactly?! You did choose a RED Corvette convertible!
I don't get enough practice (I'm trying to keep my license and no race track near by).
As to the red, my first contender was a blend into the background silver-grey one, and a blue one but those owners didn't seem keen on letting my mechanic have a look at it. Then there was a black one with a loud-all-the time Borla exhaust (which would get annoying when on a long highway trip), a couple of Z06s, but still with original heads and valve guides (a known problem) or a lot of work done by someone I know nothing about, then a black Indy 500 Edition, but the dealer sold it before I could take it for a test drive. After test driving this one, I was not going to let it get away. I didn't even haggle over the asking price.
