Cool

Someone has removed all the bends from the road.
Is this a Health and Safety thing?

Hey sarge, I just realized something. Your dash cam is pointing in the wrong direction – you need something for those disappearing behind you. You can't see them being left in the dust if the camera is pointing forward!

I have a rear view mirror for that. I watched the vette in the right lane shut down with a puff of smoke

Interesting position. However, the existence of this message thread seems to indicate otherwise.

How can I prove it to myself if I don't have a video to rewatch and rewatch?
If my driving threads are read and enjoyed, that is why I exist

A little bit of "Fast and Furious" right there!

Can't get this out of my head now: "Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right. Here I am, stuck in the middle with you"

you are undertaking again Jeff

naughty naughty naughty.
Also, I saw you jink to the left slightly. Was that when you waved him goodbye in the time-honoured traditional way?

So Jeff, this existential crisis of yours

to paraphrase Voltaire ( he drove an early model Renault I believe) {edit- Actually, that should have been Rene Descartes. Remind me to reset my coordinates to the correct philosopher}
" I eat pony cars ( substitute other objectionable muscle cars here), therefore I am", are you finding yourself to be the eponymous (SLK-) tree in the desert? You know, the one that if no-one saw it devouring a pony car, would it make a noise?
