I never knew that there was that much truck traffic on the Autobahn.

Yep. Sucks. Traffic seems to be getting worse too...at least around here.

I'm only 6 foot, but my sitting height is at least a foot higher than the camera (or more). There's a difference between what I'm seeing and what the camera is capturing...imagine that. It all depends on where the camera is mounted.

My summer with the car wasn't as fun as I would have liked. But i did a few small mods, went to the ford nationals in Carlisle (met oac sparky), and used it as a moving truck when I moved into a new house.

I understood question to be "mustang in summer of 2012" not "this summer in a 2012 mustang",so that's how I'm answering...

wife and i separated in march..clutch cable broke in april,fixed in may (gimme a break,only home 1 or 2 days a week,and no shop-gotta work around the weather too..AND I don't hit the road after the 1st beer---cuts my cruzin time considerably)--- stripped gear off distributor in june,replaced in july...august fiddling with timing,september-still timing and working on clutch adjustment.. october not home as much,watched the pine needles pile up-fiddled with it yesterday,needed the truck today--gotta leave tomorrow--- maybe next weekend?

I enjoyed all of your stories/videos...mybe I can do better next summer

"Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body,but rather to skid in broadside,thoroughly used up,totally worn out and loudly proclaiming.....WOW!.....What a ride!

"As you grow older,don't slow down,speed up-there's less time left"--over 45 and just now realizing how much I don't know
