...and then i rode in the alpha!
whee! i finally got to go for a ride in phil's alpha. i've been in more exotic cars this month than i have been in ever before. that's an awkward sentence, but you probably know what i mean.
as we walked out my door, phil asked me if i wanted to drive. while such trust is admirable, given that i'd broken a car the previous day, i declined.
while we were out on old oxford highway, he decided to test out something a friend had told him recently about double wishbone suspensions. he pulled into a nice flat, empty parking lot and did the tightest donuts ever-- no squealing, except from me! he made me squee like a girl. it was fun.
hey phil, you should look into autocrossing that thing.

Autocross? Uh-oh. Another opportunity to distract myself ;-)
But seriously. I'll look into it. Might be fun to try a couple of times, I think.
