Same Old Bullshit

Warm weather, and the speeders are out again in full force. Just today people bustin' through the roads over the speed limit by 30 km/hr and police are pulling them over left, right, and center. And it's not the fast cars that are responsible for this; I saw a 2005 Corvette doing the speed limit diligently while a piece of crap Dodge Neon was blasting through at 30 over. 

And then last week, two kids got pulled over TWICE in a week for driving stolen vehicles in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. They like to steal the older cars that don't have any anti-theft systems or chipped keys. The cars of their choice were 80's Chevy and Dodge vehicles. During their last police chase, the 16 year old driver managed to clip 5 police cars and eventually got boxed in on a side road.

I'm heading to Aliso Veijo California on May 11 - 14 next month for business; hopefully I'll be able to grab some photos of some exotic cars out there. The only exotic cars I have seen so far have been a nice black Bently Coupe and a Mercedes 6.3 black edition (which I'm not sure if it was REALLY a true V12 merc because it was too damn quiet). You'd expect a twin-turbo car to roar when they drive by. I think I jumped the gun and SAW something I thought was there but wasn't.

Ho hum. I was going to check out the new Kia Soul today, but honestly, I wasn't that bored today - maybe next week? We'll see. The Soul does look like an interesting car though.
