I'm 11 inches shorter than that Dutch monster and can relate to some of that. I couldn't even begin to lever my ass into a Dodge Viper when they came out, or those little BMW Z3 roadsters. Probably just as well for my wallet. Never been in one of the newer 'vettes but the old ones you have to sort of slither into.
I think he could "beat them down" on their price as well. Vipers are very tight, had one,
and Corvettes you have to slip in sideways, had three over the years. Another tight one
is the Mitsubishi 3000 GT.
Ahhhh ! That's the good stuff! Do tell, please.
They make the steering wheel very strong, thankfully, because you will be using it.
I actually had to take a drivers test in a Corvette. I lost my license for speeding again,
imagine that, and it was the only one I had. I told the police lady that was giving the
test to please hold on, and allow me to parallel park it my own way, since it has a really
really shitty turn radius. So I got close, held the gas to the floor with the brake on,
then released the brake and spun the wheel at the same time. It skipped, made horrible
screaching noises, and popped into the space. She opened her door side, saw that I
was close to the curb, and said "Ok we are done here." Those were fun days.
I'm sorry that I sounded like bragging before. I have an ego the size of Texas
and I must constantly work on shrinking it. I am now a poor owner of
one very old pickup, and happier than I have ever been. I escaped the world
of commerce and live a very simple life now, in a log cabin on top of a mountain.
I think I can, I think I can.
I know I can't, I know I can't
Cracked me up mate - also laughed at this one.
Didn't think you were bragging, I just like old cars. Snoop through here and you'll see what I mean.
Road tests. Took my motorcycle test in ..... 1991 ? Something like that. All I remember is the Nice Lady directed me to do a left hand circle. She then started chatting with my buddy who brought me there and on about the 8th loop when I was getting fairly dizzy I put my foot down. Points off.
I have a commercial driver's license for straight trucks and trailers up to 5 tons. No problem driving the damned thing even through heavy traffic. But at one point I found myself in a giant parking lot full of cones and a young man with a ipad and a head full of hair gel being a loud obnoxious snot. I passed the test but had recurring visions of planting my foot on his chest and shoving him out of the cab ........
