We had a bad night last evening, the upshot of which was we didn't get to sleep until after 0500 hrs. We've only just now finished our first cup and had seriously considered blowing this whole blog thang right the hell off for the day. But just then the Brown Truck O' Happiness pulled up outside and the friendly driver hands me this package from Cadillac. "Hmmm," sez I, "I wonder what this could be?"
It's a box o' Firsts. "Hunh?" sez you? No, really.
Each little compartment is labeled "Open after..." or "Open before..." Some of these events have already transpired, so the Caddy people are just a lil bit late. If I led a normal life I'm quite sure ALL of these things would have happened already, coz The Tart has been with me for a lil over a month now. Be that as it may, I chose to open the compartment labeled "Open after first road workout."
I should have known. My "road workout" was on the super-slab, not in the twisty-turnies. I HAVE taken The Tart into a few corners at speed and she reacts well... which is to say she holds a line well, gives good feedback from her steering (which is heavier than I like, but not bad), and minds her manners. My only criticism: the StabiliTrak system comes on too early sometimes and cuts power just when you wanna hang the rear end out a lil bit. But the good news is you can always switch the system off. Oh. What was in that compartment, you ask? This. Heh.
