thats how you sell a performance car... let the buyer feel what the car can do nod[1].gif

I sure am impressed with your ability to talk on an internet forum about how you test drive expensive cars

I admit a couple years ago in my 93 Corvette I hit 141 MPH on a two lane public road... I look back and think how stupid. It was dark, tires needed to be replaced, passenger, and a few cars. I could have killed my self or worse someone else. I grew out of it and glad I did. Yes, I may hit 110-115 on the interstate if the road is clear and is bright as day, other then that I do 5-10 above the limit (flow of traffic). If I am on a normal road, I do the posted speed limit.

 

But I also been in a really bad car accident, flipped over in a ditch... So I tend to be a bit more cautious. I can have fun in a sports car with out being reckless.

Someone should talk to this kid's mom so she can show up at his next test drive and drag him home by the ear.

 

My cousin received a Corvette when he was 19. Father was wealthy and his kid was a bit of a cocky dickhead. Day 3 he brings it up to 125 and wraps it around a telephone pole. Snaps his neck. Quadriplegic.

 

Spent 20 years in a chair and died a few years ago. Thanks for coming.

not really... its what normal guys do ...
if you are going to put yourself on a pedestal and tell me that you've never been reckless or irresponsible if your life and have the audacity to lecture someone about it then i'm just totally baffled
who the hell do you hangout with? mormons? computer geeks?

i know this is an internet forum, but if you have a casual convo with your boys about what happened last weekend... i'm sure you've probably done some "irresponsible" things
get off the pedestal and come down to the real world

i dont know whos a kid... i make enough to make for my moms car and some of her living expenses

i hate how the older generation tries put themselves on a pedestal and lecture stuff when they themselves probably done irresponsible stuff that could negatively affect others or themselves on other subjects not pertaining to automobile incidents... and if you have never done anything that could negatively affect others or yourself then you are a bubble boy or living under a rock

Neither my myself nor my friends partook in reckless behavior. One instance of reckless irresponsibility could have ruined our entire careers before they even started.

Most of use have driven reckless from age 16-20... But most of use also grew out of it, either a friend was killed or involved in an accident. For me it was an accident that was out of my control due to mechanical failure. I don't remember much just the fire department trying to get the doors open and me laying on my babies roof (BTW Trans Ams roof is glass). Trapped in the car for what seemed like hours was plenty of time to think of how much worse it could have been. Luckily I only had a few scratches.

even at my no-fun college we've done some reckless things...
have you ever attended a fraternity party in college? walls get kicked in and kids get sent to the hospital
they even showed "hazing" on that movie the social network...
where kids were forced to drink whisky...
shit... thats like rated G in terms of college experience

man, most of us when we're 16-20 we never were able to have real cars with real performance.
thats what i'm saying...
you know how some dealers test drive cars with younger kids now?
like my friend who test drove an infiniti g coupe several years ago the salesman and him went to an empty lot and did donuts and drifted the car

putting yourself on a pedestal is turning a blind eye to how society work...
guys like fast cars, and they like going fast. no matter how old. just younger guys usually dont get their hands on weapon grade cars and when normal people do... they are already on viagra

Well that crash did not stop my need for speed right away... It did calm me down and I drove a bit more normal, still like an ass. After I parted the Trans Am out I bought the Vette and done more then I wish I did. Funny enough after loosing a good job and money was going away, then turning 20. Reflecting back and saying damn, I need to get school and stop being an idiot. Fast cars and driving like an idiot is not everything.

Wait, you're out of school and have a job? Yet you express yourself like an 12-year-old monosyllabic moron?

thank you.

As for driving reckless, I took me a few years but having my license revoked for 3 months and some very large fines, I've slowed down considerably. Main thing to me is responsibility, I dont mind (too much) about putting myself in danger, I like the adrenaline. However, speeding on public roads, even when there's only one other car around, inherently puts others in danger. Killing myself would be tragic (although some would think it a blessing devil.gif ) , hurting or killing another would however be criminal..

That said, I remember from some time ago a chap from my high school turning 18 and getting an m3 from his father. The principal of our school, a wise man, said to him that his father must have really hated him when he and the guy were talking about that car. (keep in mind that this was about as elite a school as it gets here). 18 months later I read in the paper that an accident with a fast car killed three youngsters (burnt to death) and made the fourth a vegetable, near that town. Called in, and yes it was my former classmate. Great way to get rid of your kid, not so great that he took others with him.

Yes, you can give your kids fast cars, but only if they have learned responsibility for their actions. At 18 or 20, very few have..

They way JV has manifested himself to date makes me think that he has yet to learn this.

Was on a forum many years ago when the E46 M3 was new, some Asian kid living in a nice suburb of LA had his parents buy him an M3, not long after, I think he hit another car or might've been a pedestrian (those roads out on the coast in California like PCH down south probably claim a few pedestrians here and there) going about 120 and killed some people. I don't think anything happened to him in the end, might've been a minor. One of my neighbors in high school killed a girl from up the street and also walked free. has a disfigured face to show for it and rode the school bus afterwards, but nothing happened to him.

How many people think Darwin will win vs a guy who calls himself 'junior varsity' ?
