Short video....Yes I drive my car!

Just for kicks, an absolutely crappy short one-handed iphone video from yesterday. I don't recommend this in the twisties, though. Stayed in third gear, didn't go over 5500 rpm's (you do the math on the speed). If I could have held the phone in my teeth to free up my right hand, then look out!

Mark, thanks for sharing! Looks like a nice road for relaxing/exhilarating drives.

Best to you!

We've got plenty of really cool country roads where all you have to do is look out for coyotes, rattle snakes, and/or deer. A guy can get radically crazy if wanted. This time, though, one-handed isn't the smartest thing to do pushing speeds beyond just a mere C note.

Maybe I should change the title of this post to "show your videos here". I don't have an Instagram account so can't watch Jacobs. Guess I'll have to mount my old digital cam to the windshield and do a "proper" run with both hands on the wheel!

Mark,

Glad to see you got it out. I also "drive" my 78 930. Letting these cars sit is like an Olympic athlete being a couch potatoe.

Yes, more videos! You don't need an account to view Instagram. Just "x" out of the sign in window and you can view accounts.

Just another iPhone crappy video as I was returning from a car show where the only Porsche was a 928 with Corvette engine. Ignore the point in the middle where I was fumbling with the phone. Need to do a proper camera mount one of these days.

Hope you can open it; attachment is a Mail Drop from the Cloud.

This time, not a video of me driving foolishly one-handed, but just some scenery of the locale and a shot of the car. Cold wet weather is just around the corner so got to take her out as many times as possible before the winter slumber.

I know, I know...you're all thinking "who is this idiot and his worthless videos"? Well, just little old me taking advantage of a 52*F day. The beast is breathing easy, can't wait for below freezing weather.
Sorry, couldn't step in the go-pedal too much due to possible congestion. Gotta be safe, so we can do it again (and stay out of jail).
