Couch, you will have to dump the Aveo if you want to win.

Well, I dumped something after the race. I swear to God I would have won if Inge wasn't in the back of the car. Inge is becomming fat. She slowed us down.

I still remember around 10 years ago, when I was working part-time for a detailer in BH during my undergrad - and an F355 pulls up with a Tubi exhaust . . . the imprint it made on my ears and my heart will last a lifetime.

Also a fan of the Ferrari exhaust note. The gentleman I work for now has owned two Ferrari 308's. Listening to that V8 at full throat is a thing of beauty to the ear.

Meh, in a highway race almost all ferrari's will get destroyed. I've beaten two different kinds. Not sure exactly which models they were, one was older (mid 90s) other was mid 00s probably. Beautiful cars though with a sexy exhaust, and they would destroy me on a track with some slow corners. I would love to have one with a matching Ducati at some point in my life.

One of my proudest driving moments was when I blew past a Ferrari in my Morris Minor, circa 1982. Of course, he was slowing down to make a sharp turn while I was going straight but still...
