I should turn this thread into SMWS, "S*** My Wife Says".
"If we just buy cars with paddles, I wouldn't need to learn that heel-toe stuff."
You know, I'm constantly reminded of that old saying, "We're attracted to people for their fine qualities, but we love them for their faults". There's no doubt in my mind that's the reason why I love my wife so much. It's the similar with my little girl. We get ready to go to town, I get her strapped into the car seat with her bear, I kiss her and the bear, and just as I'm pulling out of the driveway... she poops in her diaper.
Each one of those anecdotes was good for a chuckle.
On my way to work this morning, I saw a guy driving what I assume was a Porsche 550 Speedster replica. I can't imagine it was the genuine article. It seemed to be a little beat-up around the rear-end, and it had all the racing decals. The guy driving it was obviously enjoying himself - he had on one of the old-timey Cromwell racing helmets and goggles, just like this pic of Stirling Moss.
Still sounded like a loud VW Bug, but I'm guessing the real Speedsters do too?
I've wondered that too, about the sound....most of the YouTube vids are of the Beck replicas, but this one is supposedly original. Sounds cool as it drives away....
