I do hope I read your origional post correctly but am too lazy to check back
Good job! I was wondering if anyone would catch that. We switched positions a couple of times since it appeared the WRX was annoyed an AARP Cadillac was keeping up. If you know the WRX type you would understand. Besides, switching positions is only natural, life gets tedious any other way.

Silly "works" driver and 996 dude both kicked it up past 130mph at one long view vantage point before we were all trounced by the girls. I could not catch the 996 but passed the "works" as their gearing makes them fall on their face above 130mph as I have stated before. In my STS GM actually made 5 gear usable for accel., a rarity at GM and probably due to the Northstar being rather efficient for a 4 cam, 4.6 litre eight.

Me and the missus "raced" our two packets down through England ( from N Ireland ) and into Wales.
We succeeded in passing the whole regiment having started last and second last in the line up.
and stuck to the rules re speeds ( ahem )
Boy was the C. O. pissed, the Adj ( who was a regular officer)did not help by getting them lost mind
tee hee.
There were three Lt. Gault's in the one Battery, two of them being married to each other, tee hee
A wee bit confusing, when the phone rang and some asked can I speak to Lt Gault please???
Ah yes the good old days
Now God help me I know how my father felt when I ernestly assured him, that NO I was not going to crash, humph.
I didjust the once
trying to ogle the girlfriends tits in a borrowed dress that was way too big.
Perhaps I should have told him that?
Anyway anyway we now got a 16 year old son

God help us
