Yes, another car related post...
Maybe I need to rename my journal, "All MX-5, all the time!"

My car has a Tire Rack sticker plastered across the windshield. It has this because it needs the sticker for the divisional and national tour, and the divisional was last weekend, and national tour is next (not this, next - 3rd and 4th), and I decided to leave the sticker on for two weeks. Last night, I went for a drive up Lime Creek Road. I'd catch up to a car, and the car would pull over and let me pass. Catch up to another car, it pulls over. Another... it pulls over. I wasn't even going all that fast! I was just "having fun" not "pushing." Of course, me having fun in the MX-5 on Lime Creek is a good deal faster than a Saturn wagon just putting along, but I wasn't tire squealing or tailgating or anything.

It was a wonderful drive that really brightened my evening.

Bren got picked out of a gigantic crowd when we were driving my car back from the Toledo Tour with the TireRack banner in place.

*nod* I've been wary of cops. I actually wasn't going over the speed limit at all this trip; everyone else was under it. Even on the straights, the fastest one of these cars made it to was 5mph under. *puzzled*

I think people probably don't go all the way up to the speed limit if they need to slow down for the next corner anyway. It saves gas! Ask doppler.

By the way, why do you need the sticker for the divisionals and nationals? Does it go faster with decals? (har har, just trolling around a bit :)

Tire Rack's a sponsor. Part of the sponsorship is "put these on all the cars." At least, that's my understanding of it.
