Going into work late today, I was minding my own business when a nice Ferrari (either Modena or Maranello-don't know the breeds well enough to tell the difference) comes cruising up to me along the highway.

The driver 'goats' me on a bit, and from about 45mph, we launched into acceleration mode. I kept right up until some 3 digit speed (I refuse to state out of respect for law enforcement types) and then the Ferrari just started pulling away... the conditions were not autobahn, so I quickly shut down. We slowed, and as I pulled up along side, he gave me the thumbs up. Oh, the driver had a familar face, I believe to be a professional football player on a local team. :secret:

Even if I had the autobahn and space, it was clear the goat was outclassed for the next segment of the run, but it was awfully close...so, not a bad spanking in IMHO.

Sweet - that was about $165K you were running against - if it was a Modena.

Hmmm.. Imagine 132K in mods on a GTO..... That would have been a fun spanking, for sure.

If it had a window on the back through which you could see the engine, it was a 360 Modena. V8, 400HP. If it was a typical coupe, it could have been a 456, 550, or 575. All V12s. What'd it sound like? I've never seen any of the last three in person, but I have seen several Modenas (including a sky blue Spyder - wow) and an F40 (very wow) in person.

"It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up."

Their strength is wide open top speed and they're geared to take advantage of it! No way you were gonna catch that! Now in a stoplight drag race, things even out some. :D

See, school is GOOD for you! You should be concentrating your efforts there instead of here!

I'm well past that point, so I can waste time away. :D
