Let me tell you all something. I had a little doubt in the back of my mind about the capabilities of the coupe, (since I haven't been driving it that long). But after fifteen hours of straight driving at about 70. We made it from San Antonio to Alabama with no breakdown! Only lost one hubcap, 'cause a friggin' semi locked it up in front of me and I had to perform some outstanding evasive manuvers. Anywho... I'm proud to say that the coupe performed like a champ. This must be why I like them stangs.

Cool beans. Glad to hear the Stang did well. And, not to offend any truckers(my dad was a trucker), when I was moving to Tucson a few years ago, I almost got run over by one. Was on the home stretch, inside Tucson city limits, traveling in the right hand lane when a semi came up in the left lane. We were the only two vehicles on the road as it was pretty early. Well he no sooner got his cab past my car when he put on the turn signal and started crowding into my lane. I thought, oh great, I traveled 1700 miles just to get smashed. I slammed on the brakes and just missed the a** end of the trailer. The thing that really pissed me off is that there was no traffic, and he wasn't trying to make an exit or anything. Scary stuff. I guess it was just an introduction to the kind of traffic I would have to endure in Tucson.

Haven't been in Tuscon in a long time, but I laugh when I recall a main road named Speedway!
