That is kind of my thing, though. Probably could make a huge compilation video of just throwing horns at the corner workers/spectators.

If anyone remembers when I dragged a GTI home with a GC 2.5RS...



It was like 65 degrees today and it had rained lots since the last time they salted the roads, so I dragged my latest toy up to the BMV to get its VIN inspected so I could get the title transferred.

Found a hidden folder full of pictures from my jaunt to Iowa last year.




Just a little bit of tire deflection. Of course, that was before this happened:

I drove this car's replacement today, fortune willing. It had 300 heavily turbocharged horsepower, giant Brembo brakes at all four corners, and a sophisticated AWD system attached to a 6 speed transmission.

And it wasn't a Subaru or a Mitsubishi. But it meets all the checklist items, yeah? So it's still relevant...

Update: That car sucked in hindsight. Didn't buy.

Acquiring the real Oktavia replacement tomorrow afternoon. Sophisticated AWD system that is tied in with an interesting electronic suspension, giant brakes, huge wheels, 6 speed trans, way too much boost, fast steering lock-lock, yada yada. And it has an R and an S in the name and it was built by Ford.
