God Bless Him! Finally a 53 yr old that is in a hurry to get somewhere! Usually we're all stuck behind the older guy driving a Lincoln and doing under the speed limit...

A car like that its kind of hard to resist. However the law is the law. I do not like porches, beamers, ferrari's lamborgini's, etc etc... they belong on a racetrack or in a warmer climate. If there are children playing on the street there is no need to race down it. As I always say, the squeekiest wheel does'nt always get the grease!
