Actually... 2 days... 1 at BG, the other at Adventure Island. Then a day or two at a Clearwater beach. At least that's the current plan anyway.
Well if you must spend 2 days there...plus time on a beach (for a guy who lives in Va Beach)...I can't help you. :confused3

Also, i chaperoned a field trip Apple Picking yesterday. I took the new Mustang on some 2-lane highways. it was :woohoo:. The "old" top speed (for me) in my new car was 89. New top speed: 93.:thumbsup2 It's important to note that the car was fine to go faster, i was not.
If the car wants to go faster but you don't I'd be more than happy to help remedy the situation. ;)

My old pickup truck is governed at 105 and once in a while when I'm feeling the need for speed I like to make the engine cut out going down some back country roads:rolleyes1. I don't know how fast I can go in my 2008 Silverado yet, I think I've had it up to about 90. I just love going fast, maybe I should be a racecar driver when I grow up. :rotfl2:

    DW backs the Minivan into a post this weekend and puts some nice scratches on our right rear panel...sure I'm not happy...but I'm not mad either accidents happen.

    So she drops it off at the shop for repair/paint...it's going to cost us $250 deductable on our insurance...still I'm not mad...not happy either.

    I really didn't/haven't say/said anything through the whole deal. So last night she says...uh-oh...I left your TomTom in the van when I dropped it off...you think it will be allright? Then I say..."I guess it will have to be."

    Somehow that sets her off into a rant about how I haven't told her how it's OK that this happened...blah blah blah...somehow now I'm the one in trouble??? :sad2: I must be one of those insensitive jerks you read about.

    So I understand what you are talking about.

    Next: only 96 days till WDW! I graduated high school in '96.

    Also, i chaperoned a field trip Apple Picking yesterday. I took the new Mustang on some 2-lane highways. it was :woohoo:. The "old" top speed (for me) in my new car was 89. New top speed: 93.:thumbsup2 It's important to note that the car was fine to go faster, i was not.
    The fastest I've ever been on surface streets was about 135. A friend of mine was a mechanic at a race shop and someone had paid him to make a sleeper (if you can) from a Lancer Evolution 8. Huge nitrous tank: Check! New head and pistons: Check! MASSIVE new turbo: Check! New huge intercooler: Check! Nitrous fogger to cool the new intercooler: Check!

    We, uh... took it out for a test drive. He punched it at a stop light and the car slid sideways. All 4 tires were just spinning and once it caught we were off like a shot. It took me almost 2 weeks to quit smiling. Before that my fastest was about 125 in an '81 RX7 that my friend of mine and I rebuilt for him when I was in high school. He had the money and I had the expertise and tools. Ahh - great times...
    Passed and approved... page 1 updated :thumbsup2
    Woohoo!

    As the Navy would say about the top cruising speed for an aircraft carrier (in excess of 30 knots)... my top speed is considerably in excess of the maximum speed limit. Love my stage 2 Subaru Impreza WRX... and yes, I know I will draw ire from the American muscle lovers here. But my 300HP comes at a much more affordable price! :lmao:
    A good friend of mine had one of those. Actually his wasn't a WRX but when he was done with it he was turning pretty quick 1/4 miles out of it. I don't have anything in the last year or so of his life, but the last image of his times on the track was 14.733 @ 91.54. That was before his new turbo and intercooler. If I remember right, he was down in the 12's before he passed.

    Oh come on... if you get there at RD (or whatever they call it at Busch Gardens) you can hit the majority of it by noon. Last time we went we got there bright and early with a plan of hitting the coasters first thing. We rode them ALL in about 45 minutes and walked right on all but the last of them and had our pick of seats. This was during the spring break time of year too. Get the busy stuff first, see the shows, hit the other attractions and do the BG and the beach all in a day! ;)


    :rolleyes1Good luck convincing your wife:rolleyes1

    I was a passenger in a 70 280Z going 126 on a dirt road. I made a comment about being glad he put in 5 point harnesses and he replied they didn't matter much for me because the racing seats didn't fit right so mine only had one bolt holding it in.:scared1:

    Looking back, I really hope my son grows up with more brains than I did.

    :confused3 Yeah... you're such a jerk, Nate! You should have bought her flowers and did a dance when you wrote the check to the insurance company. :flower2::flower2::flower3::flower2::flower2:

    Very nice! This is one area of life where money does make a difference :lmao:

    Haven't taken mine to the track, but I gets up and goes. I'm limited by the transmission in this car... it's known affectionately as the "glass tranny". I've had to replace a few gears in it already :rolleyes1

    Thanks for the 411. Need to keep this in the "research" folder. And I completely agree.

    :scared1: :scared1: :scared1: Wow. That was great of him :thumbsup2

    Welcome! We, uh... huh. Hmm... So, uh... Does that make you a Dom? Or a Mad? How does that work?
    I don't know for sure, but I do seem to have a lot more pink stuff in my life now. They actually sent me a robe from the Cinderella Suite in the Magic Kingdom for Mother's Day. I looked pretty good, standing in the driveway in my robe, holding a beer, in flip-flops and an IU hat to cover my bed-head, screaming at the kids to get off my lawn.

    Dad would have been proud.

    Ok, I can handle the robe, beer and flip flops.... but when I saw the part about the IU hat :eek::scared1::eek::scared1::eek::scared1::eek:

    Sorry, but I couldn't resist... Purdue grad here. ;)
