This is not meant to be a complaint ... I guess ... but I'm wondering why this section of the forum has become a bit of a dead spot. Looking back at the first posts in this thread (160+ pages ago) this thread was filled with stories of people's exploits on the roads and beyond with their cars. Though occasionally the stories were too far off into the "dangerous" category, the majority were of the sort that we all run into on the roads - you know, someone wants to see what we have and when the opportunity is there (clear open roads, etc) we drop the pedal and go. Unless I'm the only "crazy" driver who does that ...
The stories were good to read and often entertainingly written. BUT ... it seems that as of late those tales have disappeared. Often when a story pops up there is someone to admonish the readers that street racing is dangerous and that innocents can suffer - both true and important points that I agree with. But I have no doubt that we all still have some good stories that are happening to us presently, and I for one would love to hear about them.
Again - I don't care to read about the race you had where you swerved in and out of traffic or ran through a neighborhood, but it's nice to hear how our cars stack up in the real world. Even a good tale of an exhilarating drive on a twisty road is fun to read.
If those stories are not meant to be on this thread, so be it, but I am curious what the rest of you think about my comments.
