Post I have a new favoret road

Ok so during yesterdays little "storm" my power went out as well so I went for a drive...(there is a simaler story in the general forum)anyway I took of up flagstaff road in boulder (one of my most favoret places to drive) all the way at the top near gross resavore There is a sign that says denver that way. so I took of down a road that I latter found out was highway 72 (has to be the only highway on earth with a 15mph speed limmit) anyway this was the coolest road I have ever driven on... Steep and tight unpaved switchbacks and even a few places that I bet I could have goten up enought speed to catch air... this has to be the closest thing to a WRC stage that I have ever driven on. anyway just wanted to share... I think I am going to be spending alot of time on that streach of road. see ya

Living on Baseline in Boulder (at 20th St.) I drive that road a few times a week. There are a few places to watch out for the Fuzz, but it's more or less clear. It is a great road to drive, though there are more outside of Boulder that are less congested and have a bunch of dirt hairpins. If you want to see some of these, you're more than welcome to come on a drive. Just PM me.

I am talking way up by grosse res. It was all dirt and single lane... not much of a high way but about every mile or so there was one of thoes highway markers. It was not congested at all meaby because of the weather but I only saw one other car once I got off of flag staff. PM me we should get together some time and go check out some roads. I have a friend with a galant VR-4 that trys to keep up with me but he needs to work on his drifting a little. NE way I love to drive around here. If you live on 20th and baseline you must have a cool house. I love that part of town.

I also have a friend with a VR4 and he said he was having a hard time catching me on some sections. I know the road you're talking about, like I said, I drive it a lot. There are also a lot of good tarmac roads up around that area. I'll drop you a PM when we decide to go driving next.

Crazy...I just met a neighbor of mine after I got my WRX. He came over to check out my car.

He's got a 92 Galant VR-4, number 6-something out of 1000. What a sweet car! 4WS, AWD...and that 1st gen DSM turbo motor. It's been modded a bit too and the thing is quick!

This one is black. I thought they were really rare too, seems like we have a lot of them in Colorado!

Anyway - staying on topic... 72 is definitely one of the coolest drives around. So is 66 up toward Estes Park. All those roads connect up together back there.

One of my favorites is to take Canyon West out of Boulder, hook up with 72 by Nederland, head South and come out at the back side of Blackhawk. Good fun!

Cheers!

I am interested as to where the fuzz may be up there I want to go play some more but I don't need any tix. I dont want to be stupid or anything but 15mph is just to slow. I think I was about 20-35 most of the time in second. but I didn't really see anyplace for a cop to sit.. The only reason I can see a cop driving all the way up there is becase he is a slacker that confinscated some herb from some kid on the hill.

A friend of mine also has a Galand VR4. It's damn fast, maybe faster than the stock WRX (his is stock as well). Sweet car.
