Your driveway is long enough to get up to 140?  Should we call you Lord Slugger?

Nice one Andy and Scott.

A friend of mine who works for Renault borrowed a Nissan GTR for a weekend at the beginning of this year and came round to let me have a go. I took it up to about 140mph on my private test track before I backed off.

That M6 Toll road section is sure handy for opening up the taps.  ;)  :tease:

Really great story about your Aston test Andy. :good:

Amazing...I'd be WAY too nervous as an AM salesman to let you do that   :( :(

He was a nice guy and completely calm about the whole thing and was encouraging me on. 8)

I feel I have highjacked this thread. :-[ Sorry.

No need to apologize Andy, it was great story and I didn't mind hearing about it! You were lucky to run into such a great salesman!

The sound of that engine in the original video was incredible. Sounded like a right proper muscle car!  :good:

The closest I've ever come to driving anything really cool was a new Datsun 280ZX that a friend was stupid enough to let me take it for a test drive in Vancouver around 1983 I guess. Damn near killed myself but was all calm and cool when I brought it back and said "nice ride"  :-[

No probs Andy, it was good reading, just tell us where this showroom is and we'll all go down there.  :DD

Andy, you've been around here long enough to know that our threads wonder all over the place!  ;) That's just part of the fun.

It was a GREAT story. Always good to hear first hand driving stories.

Yeah, I've been on forums where people get all bent out of shape if you go off topic. I like this better, we just wander like a normal conversation. What's better than that?
