RE: Better 1/2 GTO Pilot

Went to dinner last night for my wife’s Birthday and she asked for the first time if she could pilot the Goat round trip (only about 12 miles). I said sure because there could be a time when she would have to drive her in an emergency type situation. Also like to take the Goat out when painting the town, but never do for obvious reasons; that problem has been corrected.

Long story short she did excellent, not one stall, zero issues. Her main comment was “it doesn’t feel legal I better not get pulled Hayseed” She did launch from third one time, but that was not an issue.

End of story…Rich

Hmmmm, my wife drove the car on the test drive. She has owned many rear drive V8 manual tranny cars.

I drive the car 80% of the time but have no problems with her driving it to work during the summer. Hell the car sits almost the whole summer.

Sounds like a great B-Day present for her Rich. Glad she enjoyed it. I think if my girl drove mine she might "hurt her" because of the hatred she has for "her"! :lol:

I always seem to do it when I'm turning left from a standstill at a traffic
light with oncoming traffic about three inches away :rolleyes:
I always have the shifter-won't-go-into-first issue when there's a long line of cars behind be and the light turns green. :facepalm:

I wish my wife could drive my car, so when the what "IF" happens. She don't want to learn how to drive a manual and shes scared of it.

Yeah the epidemic is spreading. That's been happening to me lately:bomb:

As far as my ride, the wife loves it. She only wishes that she can drive it more often.
