TC [Girl] said... is that a GORGEOUS machine! I'd be SCARED SILLY to even park that, much less drive it on even a 2-lane road!

Not too long ago, I was driving *quite a distance behind a regular truck and out of nowhere, it seemed, a rock came up and smacked into my windshield so hard that I let out a scream! I thought we were "done for" it hit that hard and loud and it was quite a surprise, since I was back as far as I was. How hard was it, you ask? It did an INSTANT 5-WEB of about 2-3 inches EACH crack! :-/ So...if something like that happened to something as beautiful as this thing, were I driving it, I'd probably be pretty, um, "wrecked" over it; seriously! :-(

Thanks for sharing! Would be fun to go see something this beautiful in a showroom. :-)

*I'm not very good w/distance measurements but approximately 10 vehicle lengths back; hence, my surprise, when it "came out of nowhere." :-/

Does sound unlikely. It wasn't thrown from a bush or overpass?

No overpass anywhere near. If I remember, correctly, we had had a bit o' snow so...they might have thrown some "sand" down but I guarantee that was not some little rock! The speed that it came at me made me think that it had been "hurled" from the dude, in front of me, far away as I was, I was completely floored by the force at which it hit. 'twas SCARY! :-(

This is the kind of car Doc Savage might drive.
