Saw a white '97 ST, w/a guy wearing no shirt, on the 101 N by Mulholland.. We actually tried to keep up until he hit 90mph. I admire that kinda grit.

90mph? Damn. Was there a tailwind? ;-) It must have been the reduced drag from no shirt!

Probably not far off from 95mph. I can't get my 97 up to 80mph without feeling like I'm going to death spin, but it didn't seem to faze this guy. On some not-so friendly hills before Agoura Hills.

Why wait for the ferry when you have a Defender?

Why are they asking NAS 110 price for this thing? 11k miles is fine, but nothing else to appeal to "originality."

Those charges were totally dismissed! Oh, wait! Ummmmm. Forget what I just said. You must be referring to the CC permit. ;-)
