This is the next move

I hav alwys maintained that whren one gets to ihe point in his life where a bike is no longer viABLE, A SPORTY CAR PREFERABLY A CONVETIBLE, IS THE WAY TO GO.

I alway envisioned myself in a Miata, but I'm too large for that
ot me a new 013 CAMARO CONVERTIBE THE OTHER DAY.

V6, 6 speed manual tranny. in arrest me red. Heated leather seats HID lights. I'm lovin it so far.

And of course my driving partner

Nice looking car and dog . Be careful of the fact that there is a low pressure area behind the windshield of a convertible and the dog slobber will be whipped forward and smack you in the back of the head. We have a golden retriever and my wife gets furious that the dog hair will fly forward and stick to her lipstick.

Nice car....the lady at the gas station has one, not many of them around here. I have been working on her so she'd let me go for a test drive, even to the point of offering her to ride my bike in exchange. In jest only, no way I'd let her....! May have to go to the Chevy dealer for that 'test drive" someday.

Still working on her, now telling her that my dad was a Chevy dealer and that I drove many of them 60's and early 70's. True for testing purposes, new tires/brakes meant a ride with every car just to see if we installed to specs....!

Having said that, you want to make sure that your mechanic won't test it "too well".

The only ones we tested....too well were the police cars. Dad would have booted our arses had we done such things to a customer car. But not that he did not do such things himself, only with the customer sitting next to him. Most were proud of the performances, his best friend had 500+ HPs under the hood of a 70 SS and very succesfully drag raced it.

Again, nice looks like the nice dog will enjoy it.
