Re: taurus SHO

My favorite place to overtake some J*$% is the offramp coming off I-90 
West to I-5 North. Eliot, you are probably familiar with it since you live in
Seattle. It has a sign says 30mph I usually blast pass the guy who p$%@ me
off on the outside lane at 60-65mph :) I remember 2 weeks ago this guy 
caught up with me at the red light on Madison Street exit, he pulled up 
next to me in his lowered Integra, his girlfriend lowered the windows and 
said something like 'It sure didn't look that fast and it's not lowered'. I
just smiled and said "It's just a big german boat with a V6, I am too old for
a boyracer." :)

It's always funny when alot people are surprised by how well all the big 
body Audi handle on the curves. I can never beat some of them on a drag 
race but it always fun to zoom past them on curves :)
