"It's like a Race-Car!!!"
#1311186 - 09/02/06 11:45 AM

Well I'm the new owner of JEDsContour's "Daily Driver" - turned my "Pride & Joy"...

And the wife drove it for the first time last night. When quizzed about her impressions??? "It's like a Race-Car" is all she could come up with.

Pretty good endorsement, I'd say!

Congrats x2 !!!


Although, when my wife drove my SVT for the first time, she got on it till redline in 1st and 2nd gear then looked at me disappointedly and said "is that all this thing has got!"

I sure felt dumb for having always talked about my quick car! But I still love my SVT!

You really need to watch what you say about another man's wife, even if you're gonna say j/k. Not cool.

Milford is where New York, New Jersey and PA meet. Right off of Interstate 84.

The only worry that I have about the wife liking the car so much is the newly passed Federal Legislation:

Bill 87.25.259 - The wife gets the good car.

I got a similar reaction the first time the wife pulled the Mazdaspeed onto an entrance ramp, she said "Holy s***t, this thing is a f**kin rocketship!" The cursing is fairly standard, my wife has a mouth like a truck driver.

So I let my dad drive my car and his response (getting on it to only 4-5k) is "I must be getting old, this car is scary!"

Best quote ever.
