Glen, I too like horsepower and speed. about the time internal combustion was becoming fashionable, some guy said there was a new beauty in the world and that beauty was speed. Something to that effect, anyway.
Honking an AMG around a track would be a gas. Am I correct that we're talking about 500 h.p.? For my 60th birthday, my wife bought me the Richard Petty Experience here at TMS. Since they only let you go 140 the first time and it was on an oval, I thought it would be kind of lame. I've been that fast on a motorcycle and have taken a couple of road racing courses. I was wrong! Driving next to the back straight wall and diving into the third corner to hit the apex looked like I was driving off a building the first few laps. It was exciting, to say the least.
We always do turkey for Thanksgiving. Jan (my bride of 37 years today) cooks it for 12 hours, or more at a low temp. Someone told me that doing it that way could make us sick. It hasn't in the past 40 years. Except that I eat enough to make me sick. : )
Yeah, grandson is bound to be a speed freak. His mom and dad met at a drag strip where they were racing their Mustangs. Jan and I met at an airport.
P.S. Thanks for the words of welcome.
