    Go America!!!  :?)

    I’m surprised nothing happened this year.  I guess we’ll see a new record next year. What’s 300mph like I wonder…

    Interesting post….most computer geeks (90% of my co-workers 🙂 couldn’t care less about car culture.  I thought I was the only one.  What do you guys drive?  I’m quite happy with my ’08 VW R32.

    I have had an assortment of sports cars, trucks and SUVs over the years.  My first car was a fastback 1970 Ford Mustang.  My Grand Torino with the 351 Cleveland was fun.

    More recently I bought and drove the Infiniti G35 Coupe.  Loved that car but it just sat in the garage after I cut my driving in half, thanks to Verizon FIOS fiber.  I ended up selling it and now I drive a Honda Civic Coupe.  See http://blogs.technet.com/keithcombs/archive/2007/03/15/my-new-car-gets-40mpg-how-about-yours.aspx.  It’s getting ready to turn two years old and is just now getting ready to turn over 10K miles.
