Making Mom Proud
This weekend was a big race event out in the horrific central valley of California. It's one of the few 2-day autocrosses, and it counted for points so I really wanted to go. Unfortunately, my car was still sick in my mechanic's shop when it was time to leave on Friday, so I had to race in a friend's car. A Ford Taurus, to be exact. A Ford Taurus just like my mom has.

Don't be fooled, though, this is probably the fastest Taurus in California. It has some delicious goodies on it, and its owner and I were able to beat all but two of the more powerful Subarus who showed up. That's right, Subarus just like mine. (All the same, I don't think I'll be trading my WRX in for a Taurus any time soon.)

Definitely a... unique automobile, though. I'm very pleased that I got the chance to drive it... especially since I'm pretty sure that I shortened its remaining lifespan somewhat significantly in the process of driving it, so it might not be around much longer. I have that effect on cars.
