Excellent reading! Been waiting all day for some free time to absorb your words.

My favorite - to quote you: "It felt like two old guys had busted themselves out of the retirement home for an unsupervised jaunt. Grandpas out cruising for tail, once again. I can think of no finer way to close the book on my first summer of 930 ownership".

Sheeitt mon, I feel that way every time and not just my first summer of ownership (but that ever elusive tail just doesn't seem to materialize no matter what I do; must be the old man in me scaring them off).

It's been awhile since I've cruised up to Wintrop in my 930 and never have seen anything even close to challenging me....let alone Lambos and F'cars. A 3000GT once paced my ass for awhile until I let him pass at some undisclosed triple digit number. I was too busy sightseeing and enjoying the ambience of the moment.

You've done a great job capturing in words what most of us feel and have gone through. Ought to change your day job for writing.
