Car arrived this morning. Via Fedex Auto. Seeing the car being delivered was an experience it felt like aliens were landing. The car is "very orange" I love the color. The driving is awesome. The feeling of torque a low speed amazing. It is a super-car.
So my father in law is here and we want to take the car for a drive. I have been driving it for a while but the car won't start now. I keep turning the "on key" but no noise comes on and we both think "damn, the car is dead".
We call road-side assistance, it is good to know that someone picks up the phone and offer to drive me to the shop. He thinks I live in Silicon Valley. I say I am in ATL he says "hah that would be difficult". I wait with some muzak. I finally realize 'wait, I have no engine, the car is not supposed to make any noise'. Tommy and I go back to car, I press the peddle the car takes off. I feel like a redneck. The silence is weird.
Then there are the smiles on people faces as I drive by. Never felt that way with the Porsche Turbo. Some people trail the car on the highway to take pictures, some make V signs. I am not used to that but could get used to it really quick. This is a cool car.
