    OK... I like to go fast myself, but I wouldn't do that. It's a wonder they can make tires that will hold together at that speed...

    I'll stick with the Corvette below. I think that would be about as much fun as I could handle...

    Yipe!

    That needs to have a warning label of "Do Not Try This at Home".
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    And if you have a "spare" $3,000,000 just laying around, you can have one!

    I had to take my "brand new" 2018 High Country into the shop. It was making a gear whining sound sitting in park and has even "lurched" a time or two when I started it. Apparently this is an issue with more than just my truck. So they're doing a triple transmission flush and keeping it overnight to see if it still makes the noise tomorrow. It better not, at all, or I'm going to tell them to keep it and fix it right. I don't care if they have to put a whole new trans and torque converter in it, do it. It's brand new for Christ sake, 2,600 miles. I'm not a trained GM auto mechanic but I am a Master Harley Tech, and I worked on transmissions on bikes, and it sounds to me like a trans syncro is hanging up and two gears are actually touching, and that would created a hellova lot of metal dust in the transmission. To say the least, I'm not happy. Paid a small fortune for that truck.
