1259 miles

So I bought a car here, and to get a good feel for it, I drove it home.

1259 miles straight through and 18.5 hours later, it's home.
Fun the entire time!

Njcu's yellow elise.
Pics? I'm sure they're everywhere! Lol
Seems like every other car pulls up (or sits in the passenger blind spot) and pulls out their phone.

Yes went through that when I had my 99 Esprit. Had one car almost crash because they were so focused on me.

I can't 100% confirm that it was due to the car, but a ~3 years ago I was driving home past a nearby strip mall when I heard a loud crash. Someone had driven their car into the local Little Caesars franchise (I was sad, as it separated me from my monthly nostalgia-pizza).

Drives a Prius (clearly knows nothing about cars).

The answer to drivers with automatic transmissions crashing into stores is simple... left foot brake.
