Still recovering..

But I’ll try and do this the best I can, my head is thumping with this hangover.

Yesterday was incredible with Laline, a friend of the team that works for Leo Vince made us aware of a firend of his. This friend owns a Bugatti Veyron. There are a few pictures of it circulating on the internet. This one was in the Gumball recently. It first started out as a couple rides for Laline and I. That car was crazy when it came to ride quality. For instance, my Supra, when it climbs to the upper triple digits. It will kind of shake a little, get me a little nervous and hold on. The Veyron is just there. It is like riding on a cloud at 200mph. Then it got scary.

The guy turned his keys over to me. Climbing into the Veyron seat was incredible. Looking at the horsepower gauge, putting the 200+mph key in it. Just the reality that I was behind the wheel of a million dollar car that can crack the 200mph barrier. Then let me go get ice cream in it. It only took a few quick, and I mean, quick pulls to realize this car can move it’s own weight. I know on Top Gear it had a slow lap. But this thing isn’t built for turns. It is built to be the most extreme form of going fast. And it achieves that quite well.

Fantasy Factory!

leave a comment »

With a couple phone calls made and some favors called on. Yes! Laline and I ended up at the Fantasy Factory. The place is amazing and I don’t think I could ever NOT have fun there. Rob is a cool guy, and everyone was there. I even told him about our Beefy and he laughed. His Beefy is female, and our Beefy is a male. He laughed, I did a burn out in the parking lot. Then we came home, and I am sworn to secrecy on where it is. But I will say one thing. It is hidden in plain sight!
