Just kidding...I did know someone who loaned his old Camaro to a girlfriend for an overnight trip, and she'd never driven a stick before. The result was that she wound up driving the entire distance (on a highway) in second gear...V-8s can do that, I guess...He said the engine was knocking a bit...I thought he had only himself to blame... :D

I don't think V8s "can do that" technically. I just don't think it had a choice!


oooh, not very aerodynamic! My car's sporting a .32 drag coefficient:cool:

What color schemes did ya'll get?

Mari has a Mini Cooper S, too?

Cream and black. Sunroof. Leather interior. Ummmm...great sound system. Heated seats.

I think the tach goes to 9K rpm and redlines around 6K or 7K. That means 70mph in second gear without redlining.

It's a nifty little car.

Sorry, by saying Mari..I meant RepGal...you can see the similarities:p

I looked at the Mini C website to see what sorta supercharger it had. But they didn't get that technical:mad:

More research must be undertaken!

You have a real job that you have to go to?

Mine is....just under $760 a year for the most stripped down coverage that California law allows.
Have no idea how it compares to Wash. laws?

I am a person with a penis so that costs extra. And I got caught doing bad shit before, so that costs extra.

It might be cheaper if I was driving a Bronco?

HEHE, in the insurance questionaire , they ask "is the car a turbo?" I get to say NO, because it is SUPERCHARGED!! Muahahaha. They would like to sting me more for a turbo:p

Fortunately, the guy that sold me my motorcycle, finances stuff himself. He doesn't require FULL coverage.
FULL coverage for me was in the neighborhood of $3800 a year:eek: I just got liability:cool: If I *** my bike up, I'll fix it. As I have already done;)
I asked the Insurance agent, what was the most $$ quote he could recall.
HE said he insured an 18 guy with plenty of speeding tickets, who bought a GSX-R 1000 (about the most lethal vehicle sold to the general public) for $20,000 a year. DAMN!!

Rich kid I suspect.........
