Monster Garage


HD Theatre aired an episode of Monster Garage where they attempted to put a Hyabusa turbo motor into a Peel Micro Car.  If you never seen a MicroCar, you should check out the MicroCar Museum in Georgia.  It is by far the most comprehensive of micro, small and exotic imports in Georgia.  We had the chance to go there a year or so ago and had a great time!
Getting back to the Monster Garage episode, sadly they couldn't complete the build so they had to destroy the car.  :-(
Poor little Peel.

Speeding

I don't condone speeding at all...it just seems to happen to me...a lot.
Driving into work this morning I found myself hitting 80+ without really noticing until I saw the Cobb County PD sitting on the side of the road. I was going with the flow of traffic, but thought for sure I was busted. Luckily he didn't pull me over. Whew!
I got pulled over September of 2007 for going 85 in a 55. First time I had been pulled over in 15 years!! I did the no contest plea in order to not get points on my record.
I know, I know, I should be careful when I drive, and I am. But sometimes, you just have to go fast.
