My short shifter from Neuspeed arrived. I installed it in 30 min.
Wife had a girls lunch scheduled with her friends and she was going to be gone for a few hours.
We already walked the dogs first thing in the morning.
73 and sunny.
I opened my windows and sunroof, and too the Toad out to my favorite road.
I forgot how much fun a car can be. Abarth is so fun through the narrow two lane roads through the canyons, hearing my backfire bounce off the canyon walls. It lives for that 2-3 shift and the short shifter makes it so much more satisfying. I’m seriously contemplating dropping $400 on an intake for even more whooosh sounds.
I got in touch with my Slovakian shop, and I’ll be placing an order for black Competizione badges, black handles, and new gear knob as soon as she sends me my PayPal invoice. I hate the rough stitching on the US knob.
I had a Ford Mustang GT350 ahead of me, and hearing it in anger makes me wonder if my attainable dream car is a new BMW M2 or a used GT350. Probably the best sounding car under $100k (sorry Abarth).
