100mph? Not stupid at all. I too slow down just going to market. :P

Tee hee 145mph and legal. A Hallelujah for German autobahns and the V8 fun of my old but very fine Mercedes sportster. Tina Turner fits well to this moment in time. Mbwuuhaahahahahahahaha. DO YAA SEE ME Toecutter? DO YA SEE ME MAN? Like to wind it up and let fly with the Nightrider rant, know it word for word. Tina on the music, don`t forget the gestures with my finger. THE TOECUTTER! HE KNOWS WHO I AM! Thing is, the squares who i shout at out the window, don`t seem to get it.

Reminds me of a fellow I knew who told me about his time stationed in Germany in the early '70's. He brought his car with him to the new post, a 1969 Dodge Daytona with a very warmed-over 426/4speed and 2:45 rear gears. They'd go out on the A-bahn and mess with the high-end runners. At 150, that Hemi was just starting to breathe. Overkill I'd call it.

- you named your two cats Max and Jessie (in the 1980's).

- in your mid 50's you buy four Hot Wheels Falcon Coupes (any witnesses will think they're gifts for children, right!??).

Being the recipient of one of those cars, I'm very grateful.
Very thoughtful and generous. Thank you again Johnny.

You consider getting your 2003 Ford Falcon sedan re-sprayed in black and re-trimmed in black.
You look into the legality of converting above car to a coupe in NSW.
You want BF Goodrich Radial T/A tyres for your car, even though it in no way resembles the BOB.

Again, the crazy regulations continue to amaze me. But back to our regularly scheduled programing...

You spend most of the day and go through dozens of sheets of paper trying to design the perfect RW-style front bumper for Wasteland Weekend.

You get angry when you realize that high scrap prices on aluminum have severely limited the availability of 6-71 blower cases suitable for dummy setups.

you play the MM1 soundtrack while driving your car and want to chase and ram every car or bike that is ahead of you.

...before going out on a hot summer night, you put on your heavy Vibram-soled workboots so you get that nice slightly sidways, shuffle/scrape saunter Goose had walking down the road after crashing his bike.
