I just came home from a lovely evening, and sunset drive in 4404, and an encounter with a millennial driving a new Bullit. He just got it in May (University Grad present) and had to learn to shift gears. I was in a general store getting a bottle of water and told him where he could get 94 Octane gas, as I was headed there.
I said to him as only an old racer can; " Follow me if you can keep up."
Hwy 518 is a very twisty, short straights, two lane highway with very few crossroads. I took off headed for Parry Sound. It was a good bit of fun. The road is so twisty that you don't make great speed but corner entry and braking are critical. He tried to keep up but early apexed every corner and washed out coming off the turns. On the few straight sections he blasted up behind me, only for me to wiggle away on the twisty bits. ( I also know this road really well) Anyway, we both made it to the gas station grinning all the way.
He commented that I knew how to drive my car, and I confessed that knowing the road and having a few thousand race laps under my belt may have helped. I gave him the names of a two good performance driving programs he should try. And then, on my way home, a beautiful sunset lit up the horizon. I guess maybe the old Bullit and it's gray templed owner still have a few tricks left. As Jimbob might say, whippersnappers!

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.
