      I've only seen one and it was red with the white Shelby stripes. I'd probably opt for the black with silver stripes myself.... I'd have to steal one too to own one because there ain't no way I'm spending over 100K on any truck.

        Or paying the high insurance rates, or large fuel bill either here. Not to mention I don't drive wide vehicles well either. Sure is pretty thought.

        Just seeing this thread...there's some really nice cars and trucks in here too. I like them all. My current fave is my DD 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP. They only made it 1 year and produced 1,920 of them...54 in blue like mine.

        But who was it here that did a full restore of a red vette and used to drive a Miatta?

          Well, they are in Germany on the autobahn in a section with no speed limit. I suppose if the Germans agreed with you they would set a speed limit.

          78 was exaggerating a bit when he said 140 as it's extremely unlikely the other cars are going less than 80 mph. The cars in the middle lane are probably going 120.

          The nice thing about the Germans is that they actually follow the rules when driving and they get to the right when they aren't passing. You won't find any morons there tooling along in the left lane at 70 mph.

            People dawdling in the left lane drives me crazy. The fast lane here is the right lane.

                Not according to the accident report, witness, or my Attorney...;) Won't be long now until we find out how much dust "settles" in the case :lol:….but no mater what nothing will ever replace my long lost Ruby.....everyday is an emotional struggle that causes a hurt deeper than even the permanent scars left from that horrific event....I'm not sure how I'll ever carry on with the rest of my life too afraid to even get behind the wheel of another Mustang....I've lost my passion for life altogether and the emptiness is too much to bear....:cry2:

                You're just mad your too short to reach the peddles in a Mustang. The seats don't move up close enough for you to both see over the steering wheel and reach the peddles.

                    Yes, yes....the event has shaken me to the point I'm questioning my gender identity and may need to be compensated to undergo a VERY expensive hormone therapy and possible sex change operation.....

                        The idea that the average German drives any faster on the autobahn than the average American drives in the Interstate is a myth. Also, there are very few areas on the autobahn with no speed limit. At least half have limits of 120 and 140 kph, not including areas where local controls are allowed. Also, the Interstate is far and away better for high speed than the autobahn.

                        I lived in Germany for 6 years and my experience is very different than what you are asserting. I would typically drive 120mph and I got passed like I wasn't moving pretty frequently. I try to cruise at about 100 here which is damn near impossible with all the dickheads that don't get out of the way and I get passed a couple times a year.
