Guess I'll really have to watch my mirrors for a Ferrari coming up fast when caught in a jammed up two lane section of I-5. Sheesh!
Yesterday, shortly after jumping on I-5 to go to my favorite pool hall, I found myself in a slow moving parking lot! Must have been a crash ahead. After 1/2 hour, maybe 45 minutes, of stop & go, my clutch leg was really hurting. Made maybe a mile or so by then, finally reaching an exit that let me find a backroads route back home. I was grateful for that. No way I wanted to sit on that slab for who knows how long until traffic would flow again. So much for our weekly pool playing fun.
This has me thinking the Bullitt may not be my last car after all, despite it having only 30K on the odo.
Suddenly comfort, a good stereo, and an automatic are taking precedence over the little bit of performance my'09 has. Who cares what a car can do top end when stuck in heavy traffic?
