At 2AM on Saturday night (when the bars closed), two drunk coworkers and I (I, being under 21, was the designated driver) decided to drive to NYC from Boston. We got there about 6AM, did some sight-seeing, and drove back about 2PM.
...then we went to see the new Bond flick.
Some semi-related content:
The Bond flick was okay.... He doesn't seem to use as much of Q's gadgets as he did in the older ones.
Two things I noticed on the Z8: The exhaust note can be heard in the movie. It kicks ass.
The Z8 has the annoying clown-nose alarm LED!
I got to drive the rented V6 Explorer all the way to NYC and back. Ugh. I can see why soccer moms would like these vehicles... but they're definitely not for me. :)
It could definitely use some tranny software reprogramming. You press the gas down a little to make it up a hill, and it doesn't downshift, You press the gas down a LOT, and it downshifts two gears racing over 5000 RPM. I had to press the "overdrive off" button whenever I'd go up a small hill.
The thing has a live rear axle.. whenever I'd go over a bump on the road, I could feel the rear end jumping out on me.
Anyway.. back to work.
