Driving automobiles

Archive for September, 2011

What's the neatest car ……….

You’ve ever ridden in?
Drove?
Owned?

For me:

riding in a 1968 Ferrari 305 GT Dino.  My friend still owns it and would let
me drive it, but I think I’d be too nervous to have fun or drive it safely.
BTW, it rides like a sled.

driving:  too many to list, I was a valet parker in Las Vegas for 13 years,
but if I had to pick just one, the Beatle’s psychedelic Bentley, after they
sold it to a local neurosurgeon

owned:  easy, a 1956 Chevy Nomad with a souped up 283 and a four speed.

Trip

Traveled about 1,800 miles in the past 10 days and I observed these
various drivers/areas. (Before anyone goes off the deep end, my average
speed was 68.76 and top was 91.55 per Lowrance). I-26 fast and good
drivers. Kept up with traffic flow, about 80-85. I-40 left lane cruisers
at 60-65. Knoxville, TN worst drivers noted on trip. Nashville, TN
excessive speed, 90+ by some drivers cutting in and out of heavy
traffic. License plate=SC fast, TN faster, VA blockers, NC left lane
cruisers, IL about 5-10 mph over posted plus left lane cruisers, KY too
much bourbon, erratic, IN must be the neo-nazis on the roads, saw PU
throwing beer cans out of driver’s window.

These negroes, average IQ 85, are dangerous but very stupid.

I betch she was using her turn signals, perhaps the only time that day.
 Some drivers mistakenly think: "I’m signaling, so you have to let me
in".  Wrong-a-mundo!

Riding a bicycle in traffic really encourages the sort of behavior you
noticed. It is also much more dangerous as well.

Courtsey is following the rules of right of way and being predictable.

OT: Song dedication

I would like to dedicate the song "Let Him Dangle," by Elvis Costello
(See: http://tinyurl.com/yk95xy for the lyrics) to the deposed Iraqi
dictator Saddam Hussein on this wonderful evening (or morning over
there; could you say that it is "morning in Iraq," with this execution?)
of his apparently immenent execution.

Come to think of it, we could also dedicate this song to our own
resident SADDAM aswell.

"Almost all  vehicle ‘accidents’ are due to driver
recklessness but the Chappaquidick incident is one

fault except the idiot who built the bridge."

Does auto liability insurance cover you if your driving CRIME injures someone?

I’ve never been in that situation myself, but i suppose it does. If
you’re  for example, DUI and smash into and  cripple someone, your
insurance company will pay the victim for the consequences of your
crime, right?. And yet i thought insurance companies weren’t allowed to
 offer liability for criminal activites.  Can you buy insurance to
cover you in the event you rape some woman and she sues you?

Serious only, please.

I guess that’s what happens when you have arrogant Yurrupeons who are
ignorant of US history chiming in with their uninformed opinions.

Looks familiar… was hoping it would have covered the section of 30 that
biked along in Lahaina, but alas it did not. Although I avoided riding 30
as much as I could prefering the side streets closer to the water when I
could find them.
