Kicked out of Auto Show In Motion!

I went to Auto Show In Motion in San Diego hoping to catch a glimpse of the Sky, and ended up test driving an Ion Redline... :EVIL LAUGH: I slammed it into first around a corner and burned out the tires so hard I could still see the smoke when I left the track. They kicked me out for it, but damn that was fun

Somehow, I'm not too sure you've learned your lesson...

Crazy As* B*tch As long as you didn't roll over any toes, thatís all that matters. I just hope you got to see what you wanted before you made the ultimately fatal decision, lol

It was the end of my second day anyway. Didn't get to drive the Corvette, but oh well. Man, I really want to get out of my SL2 now! I wish I could lease a redline for, say, 6 months...

Mmm I wasn't too impressed with the redline ion, I don't know if it was just the speedo that really weired me out or what. (take in consideration that day I drove a gt pt cruser convertable) I liked the GT better than the RL. but then again I'm comparing a convertable to a coupe.

Y is it I like odd cars
My likes include PT cruser convertable, subaru baja, mini (more popular than the other two) but I like cars that are exclusive, like my prelude not many people have em. and the sky will be just like it

I actually liked the guage cluster, it doesn't get blocked by the steering wheel when you turn.

Subaru Baja... [restrains laughter] yup that's an odd one all right... say no more haha...

Can't see why you got kicked out! It's supposed to be a HOT car with lots of power right? They should have expected that.

There are a set of rules and guidelines they tell you to follow. Breaking them can get you thrown out, which he did.

It's not just a car, it's a lifestyle and a community.

Do you know how many sets of tires they'd go though if everyone drove it like I did?
