    porch on tollway

    Tonight I had a Rover club meeting in Addison and had a great trip up the tollway. After 121 it clears out. I let the lead out all the way to 70 (the posted speed limit).......

    Needless to say the first warm evening windows down, V1 on, stereo cranked, and loving the whine of a turbo as I made my way through all 6.

    Just got back from a trip to Denton to see an old friend. Last time I took the Vette up there she has recently had surgery so the G forces were not appreciated. This time we took a trip down 35w to "see the sights" ... One sight she saw was 155 - Hwy 155 or rt 155 not sure which...

    I'm not sure who the guy in the black chevy truck was but that thing wasn't stock...

    The weather the last 2 days has been so nice Ive already sunburned the bald spot... Thats always a sure sign of spring....

    Never knew you could get through all 6 and still stay under the speed limit. Just proves you're never too old to learn.

    That is a nice stretch there from 121 all the way to 380.

    167 is the top speed in the GXP.....but I can't ever seem to get past 70 in 6th gear either.
