Well, I'm an official G1-licensed driver now
Test went very well on Monday, and my dad let me drive the 'Trep home from my rowing practise - about 25km, mostly country but I did come back into town to get home.
hehe After feeling the ample reserves of power that car has, I don't know why the hell someone would need a high-performance car
(lol Don't slam me for that, performance enthusiasts....remember I've just started on the road and speed is a tricky thing right now). Now I did take it pretty slow, only about 2800rpm at the shifts, but aha, that's where it's peak torque is found (3.5L). Very nice drive indeed, and it's actually going in today to have the A/C compressor replaced (cold air for the summer), a flush of ATF+4 and anti-foam, and the couple squeaks and rattles I mentioned in the 1st gen form a while ago, addressed.
Thanks for the support everyone, makes it a great experience
