Not the proper way to warm-up the engine! Does he have a CEL or is that a low fuel light on the dash. Funny how he raises the rear spoiler to drive around in local traffic. At least he wears a seat belt.

I dont know what gear he was in, but he was mostly running above 4K rpms. I sure dont like to see driving like that in traffic, dangerous and gives our cars a bad name...

Garage
I do that all the time, except on the West Side Highway...although I don't rev my engine up like that in my parking garage in the morning.

Btw, noticed the Bear Stearns cap you were wearing in the video. Did you get offer at JP? If you did, let's grab lunch. I'm right across the street.

Didn't really see anything "dangerous" with that. Actually seemed pretty tame.

Some folks just seem to get nervous being a passenger. (like my wife)

Really wasn't driving very bad. It amazes me that no one uses turn signals anymore, but other than that, no big deal.
