Dear Everyone who commutes on RT 6/101,

The speed limit is 50. Not 40, not 35, 50 mph. Please do at least 50 so I can maintain my sanity on my daily 40 mile commute. I'm not asking for anything but 50. 60 would be nice, but I'll take 50. Can we just agree on 50?

Frustrated in RI,
Me

PS...See that big hill about 1/2 mile up the road? Now would be a good time to get a running start so you don't have to slow to 20 while climbing that hill. Just a friendly reminder.

People driving automatics don't understand this concept. I find it very frustrating when crusing in 4rth that people don't accelerate before a hill and i have to downshift which equals more work for me, which makes me

Dear Mrs. Doe,

I do not think you parents would condone you being out at 11:30 at night while I am driving back from my friend's house. I do not like the fact that you ran into my car while I was doing 25mph and caused 6800 dollars worth of damage. I think you should stay off the roads, and look where the hell you're going. Next time please do not run into my car and push me into a field and make me lose my car for a month.

Pissed off in Central Mass,
Chris

P.S. Sorry I killed you, but you made some great burgers for my uncle.

Dear driver of the turbo golf,

Its hard for me to race you when I'm pulled off of the road, outside of my car, hazards on, and car overheating. Thanks for revving though.

Dear driver of the '98 black VW golf GL this morning,

I didn't realize I was sitting next to you at the stop light (in which I was turning right) but thank you so much for making my day and launching your car at lightening speed.

Sincerely,
Bob - who was borrowing his GF's '98 black VW golf GL





its like snail racing

Dear all.....

I just returned from Aruba, where I've been doing a bit of nothing and a bit of who knows what. First day back, so I'll give you some observations:

1) There are 3 WRX's in all of Aruba. I saw them all
2) There are about 10 Impreza GC's in Aruba. 2 were red and yes, I was tempted to stop and ask if they needed any parts
3) After driving a Focus rental station wagon for 10 days with a gazillion miles, the wife's OBW felt like an Aston Martin last night.
4) After a while, Heinekens taste like swill and Budweiser tastes like Sam Adams in comparison. My taste buds aren't fans of Pilsner..... Aruba only imports Guinness Stout, not Draft.
5) I came home with a solid win. 1 double day track weekend that I didn't expect to get. 2 days with COM on Memorial day
6) Good news/bad news....with the decline in tourist travel to the island, the place that rents Harleys will rent me one since I've owned several motorcycles. Bad news is that all their Harleys were broken. I rented a dirt bike again and put on about 150 miles in a day. Oh, the island's only 19 miles long and most of the miles were offroad!
7) I got some looks wearing my Subaru WRC team hat. I'm convinced that these were from knowledgeable rally fans who maybe thought I was a team member on vacation. Or maybe I should re-examine Dave's comment from one of my other posts

Um, having had my ass handed to me by John Shost's Audi TT and Steve Burns' Audi TT, I would not be ashamed to be seen in one.

Then again, based on Jack's S4 ownership experience, I would not buy an Audi in this decade. Maybe I'll see what the clutch replacement cost is on the 2011 models.

Dear old guy in the SAAB 9_3 (rt 5 south windsor)

This is a WRX I am driving and I understand you were feeling very lucky but you have to understand that if I let you beat me I would have to let every old dude with a midlife crisis beat me. And I would embarass the WRX on the back of my car, so sadly I had to make an example of you infront of your wife. Sorry about that, maybe you should consider getting yourself a saabaru 9_2. Then you can be just like me for $10k more than I spent still be driving a saab

dear kia driving fu(ktard,

when me and three of my friends are caravaning to new england dragway, and all of our cars, including my small impreza, are inline in the fast lane, doing 80+, it is extremely stupid of you to cut off the middle car, my friend jay in his probe. . then, after we all box you in, maxima in front of you, probe behind you, mustang GT in the front right, and me literally beside you, it is NOT a good idea to start swerving you're car to the right. . .because you have four larger cars surrounding you and we will make you're life miserable for the rest of you're being's exsistance.

PS: he cut jay off so hard that he was forced to lock up the brakes and slide into the grass in betweed 495n and 495s. .

Dear driver of the Toyota Camary I saw this morning:

I was travling at 85 mph in the fast lane in my '93 Merc. Villager Van this morning around 5:15 AM.

You tailgated me from exit 3 in NH to the Mass border, where you swerved around me, and then cut me off and crammed your car between me and the person two cars ahead of me (also traveling at 85 MPH).

To add to my confusion, you flashed your hazards at me before cutting me off.

RT 93 is not a race track, nor is my Mini-van a race car. I don't know what your problem is, but you almost cause another accident a few minutes later when you swerved again and made someone in the middle lane hit their brakes. If I see you again in the morning I'll be calling the state police on you, you f-ing idiot.

Dear Darwinism-award-candidate:

The reason you just drifted into my lane might have something to do with your putting on lipstick, holding a cigarette out the window, and talking on your cell phone all at the same time. Stop steering with your knees and pay attention to the road.

Dear Mr. 528bimmer,


While your European car is very nice, and I know it's RWD, there was no need to do a burn out at the light next to me, and then go about 70 in a 35 zone. I hope you enjoy posting your WRX kill story on some gay ass board.

The slow WRX driver,
Chris

Dear Toyota Camry Wagon driver,

Though I realize brakes are a good thing to have, you do not need to use them for every condition. In a 3 mile stretch following you, I counted that you hit your brakes 14 times, and only significantly slowed down for one of those 14. Even though driving on a twisty road at night can be intimidating, when going 5MPH under the speed limit, you do not really have to hit your brakes for every crest in the road and every time the road makes a deviation from perfectly straight. In that entire time following you, I used the brakes a grand total of...zero times. I think you need to learn a bit of throttle control.

PS. Picking a speed and going with it is a good thing, a 15 MPH variation in speed when the speed limit does not change is not.

Dear Caddy CTS driver,

The speed limit of Cold Spring Creamery is 50MPH for the entire 5 mile length of road, as denoted by the 4 white signs we passed this morning. I assume you were having difficulty maintaining this speed, not simply because my spedometer never registered anything above 40mph, but because your brake lights were on.

The whole time.

For 5 miles.

This indicates to me you are either Shaq with enormous feet, or are too clumsy/uncoordinated to realize your foot was concurrently resting on the brake pedal while depressing the accelerator pedal. I realize your CTS is mighty powerful, and expensive, but unfortunately, you have yet to "break through."

Yours truly,
Silver WRX with flashing high beams for 5 miles with traffic building up behind me during rush hour with exasperrated look on my face.

Even better... goto a state where studs are legal... get a Mustang GT and put studded tires on it... then peel out in front of people you don't like, and send sparks and studs into their windsheild/bumper... (I had a friend who did this when I was in MT... Same kid wouldn't beleive my WRX was faster, but for some reason he could never manage to get in front of me to do it to me.)

Dear 15 people of follow the herd mentality behind me,

There is construction 1/4 mile up the road, which is why the road is totally blocked off with cones. I am moving one of the cones so I can drive through and get to work, which is 3 buildings up the road. I can see there is no construction before that point, and my coworkers would really appreciate it if I showed up today. Do not follow me, or, as you discovered, you will create your own personal traffic jam trying to turn around and go back the way you came.

It was a good 2-3 minutes with a lot of construction people yelling before everything got cleared out. The best part was, everyone that was at work when I got there was outside laughing at the general mass of stupidity. I was honestly surprised that there wasn't an accident. Oh yeah, I forgot to include that among the cones there is a big "DETOUR" sign with an arrow pointing down th road that wasn't blocked off.

...with the dealer stickers still on the window. I don't care how cool the commercials are, you will never beat me so don't waste my time TRYING to get me to race.

BTW - two tips, since you still had the dealer sticker and temp plates on, you prolly shouldnt be pushing that car so hard before its broken in.
AND the massive body roll you displayed CHANGING LANES is a good indication that you are pushign the car beyond its limits.


TO THE NUMBNUTZ IN THE FORESTER XT - I don't care how many times I see you on the highway, I will NOT race you - that is not cool. And attempting to street race with your dog in the back makes me want to rip off your fart can exhaust and beat you unconscious with it.
