the perfect storm

It was just one of those mornings, woke up to a bunch of ****ty emails, a fight with my know it all 19 year old daughter, left my house in a state of pure aggravation.... not sure why i choose to take the GT this morning instead of lil car.....

Hit the road around 730 a lot of annoying drivers around and then all things combined for a perfect ride...

1) annoying drivers
2) perfectly spaced traffic
3) a series of all the right songs on random play
4) me in a foul mood
5) tremendous confidence in my radar and laser warnings

well i made my normal 1 hour commute in 26 minutes, with much of the drive well over 90 the ability for the GT to handle as well as my 911 at times is incredible, with each tight lane change or multi lane slide, it seemed the GT just kept getting better.....

After 6 months i continue to get amazed at the abilities of this car, the more i know it the more comfort i have pushing this car to places no car this big should go. Only once early on in my ownership did i ever feel the GT couldn't take any curve or any speed challenge it is pushed to...

Love this car...

Isn't it great to experience the therapeutic effects
of a GT ride?
