    yeah, for those who have seen I've changed my avatar for a firebird, that's true, I am flying across america with a Firebird. I bought one. It's awsome. It's my firebird. It does not seem a car of a grad student, but you may take into account I am an spanish engineer, or so called "Sir Engineer" here, so a Sir has to have a "Sir Car".


    Jokay Cool :cool: !!!

    Quite a fine steed you ride, Sir Engineer. :biggrin: Does grad school leave you enough time to spend with the ladies that car is meant to attract to you? :tongue2:

    How fast can she go? Im guessing a good 160mph. Top her out and tell me tomorrow. (Just don't get caught, take it on a small empty road w/no cops around)

    Go out on the I-8 toward El Centro. If you're brave enough to venture on some of the smaller mountain roads-to-nowhere that branch off from the interstate, you'll find stretches where you can easily hit 200 if your car is capable. No one around for a hundred miles at least. That's one of the great things about living next to a desert.

    I would definitely enjoy a ride with that sleek, fast, elegant toy of yours, Clausius.

    Thanx everybody!!!

    It's a nice car, although the gas mileage is gonna terminate with my grad student stipend. I have the option of no buying food for myself....

    PS: I am careful with this car. I treat it as it was my girlfriend, no high speed, smooth driving....:tongue2: So I am not going to put this car at high speed in part because I want to go slow enough for letting the people turn their heads....
