At least you had someone in the car with you to take the picture (two 
white knuckled hands...) No one was crazy enough with me?! Not that Im 
crazy but I like to drive fast. (no tix, no accidents EVER!!) The 120 
mark wasnt too bad of a white knuckler for me. In an escort maybe, but I 
felt really comfortable in this car doing it. I spend most of my time at 
100 anyway if I can. THe car loves it. I love it! So it wasnt a huge 
jump. 135 was though, and I was a little more attentive.

Oh bummer, sorry to hear it! (moment of silence...) Dont dispair, heads 
are rather straight forward to fix, the car should be as good as ever 
when they are done. Really tough to screw up! Best of luck to ya!
