Something to that, especially around here, with micro-climates, mountains, bay and coast, all within a few miles. I hit black ice twice, on curves, and tore up the car I was driving, both times. Can't see it in the dark, and the steering goes inop - very scary.
Also driving in San Francisco, which has slightly more hills than Holland, I was driving on Judah, parallel to Golden Gate Park, and someone ran a stop sign on my right, and they were suddenly halfway in front of me, and I was about to crash into them. I jerked the car left instinctively, and they must have seen me by then, and braked. Made it through unscathed, though driving in the City can be crazy time. --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, nablusoss1008 wrote: > > > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, turquoiseb wrote: > > > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, doctordumbass@ wrote: > > > > > > My XK8 weighs just two thirds of what the XJ6 did, with > > > an additional 100 horsepower, and two additional cylinders. > > > It is also a drive by wire vehicle, like an aircraft.
