Well, that was pleasant to read. Feel free to post more.
Accidentally, I also had a run-in with a Porsche. It was creeping slowly through a corner, heading towards the freeway. In the corner, I started getting closer and closer, trying to annoy him and make him want to "show me who's boss". I switched back to 2nd (at about 60km/h), and as soon as he floored it, so did I. Was able to keep up (barely, though, I admit) until we merged onto the freeway. No idea what kind of machine it was, and it would smoke me in a drag race or outrun me at top-speed. But the feeling that a 20 year old car which just came from the supermarket can keep up with a brand new Porsche is great. I always chuckle when I imagine their thoughts
Oh: you were too late with the avatar-change, sorry
