Smile faster car advice

I think the Cayman would be faster if it had a more powerful engine.

Mostly, I just wanted to be the first person to ever post here. Thank you for the opportunity. I apologize for any inconvenience my useless post may cause.

I don't have one, but I hear that a .357 will make the driver go faster which then might lead to global warming. Of course, it would still be a better car than a Corvette provided you don't try to fight any speeding tickets due to profiling.

Whew. Just wanted to be the first reply and get all that off my chest.

Should have bought the "S" type if you wanted more power.

Contemplating your bumper sticker, "Drive it like you stole it", one can interpret it a couple ways;

1). Drive it hard and recklessly, it ain't yours - you stole it hah hah hah

2). Drive it slowly and cautiously so as to avoid drawing unwanted LEO attention?

Has anyone stole a car? If so which of the two alternatives did you employ?

opps, sorry - I highjacked a useless thread with a useless highjack......

Leave it to a poet to question language

When I put the sticker on the car, I was leaning more toward option #1 for the meaning. This was not to condone reckless driving however. I actually drive very conservatively, but I got sick of people acting shocked and alarmed by the fact that I actually drive my car. “You drove your Porsche in this weather? I would never drive a car like that in the winter!” “You left your car at the train station? I would never do that. Blah blah blah.” I figured the only thing even more debasing in their eyes would be applying a bumper sticker – and this particular sticker seemed to be the logical choice to put my cards on the table for some of my more judgmental coworkers, clients and fellow PCA members. I wanted to preempt the entire conversation. Then when someone sees my car, they have a better idea of how I think of it. If you are a driving enthusiast, hey we have something in common. If you are a purist car snob, you should move on as I will probably just be annoying to you anyway.

I liked the sticker, and I did get to see a lot of laughs in my rearview mirror when someone spotted it, but after my daughter was born, I peeled the thing off. I think she might be a little young for ironic humor concerning grossly unsafe activities. As far as she will ever know, her daddy has never exceeded the speed limit, has never had more than one beer in a sitting, has only ever dated mommy, etc etc etc…
