Jailbreak and an epiphany
Got the call this morning from my tire guy that the BFG's were in and booked it for 9 am tomorrow. Then called my buddy and said I'd be over to get BadFast out of his shed where it's been stored since Halloween.
I left it on the battery tender so I rolled up the cover, disconnected the tender and it fired right up like it always does.
The bounce sheets I'd sprinkled everywhere kept the rodents out and the only issue was the right front tire was down to 5 lbs. for some reason the tire inflator in the trunk wouldn't work so I borrowed his compressor and topped it up - the other three were at 35 just as I'd left them.
I let it idle til the needle came off the peg and then idled on out. It was plus 5 up here - about mid 40's for you 'muricans and sunny - absolutely no grip on the pavement - as in lots of spin and only mid throttle with 5K up shifts - just good fun!
About 5 mins in it hit - see I'd been bitching all winter about payments and insurance but all of a sudden it was "oh yeah - that's why I do it - I LOVE this thing - like it's almost unhealthy how much I like this car"
Off to get tires at 9 am and yes I've been out to the garage just to look at it 3 times since 10 pm ....lol
