Pseto w/ his new M roadster...learning to drive stick!

A bit painful to watch, but after driving the car myself I'll have to say he picked a hard car to learn stick on. Pseto picked this up just a few days ago from California...and yes he plans on getting rid of the chromed wheels!

Me, Pseto, and Frank were over at Howard High on their beautifully repaved parking lot to fry some rubber...err clutch.

I really need to work on my rolling shots, not happy w/ these at all.

Paul scared shitless!


Frank waving for help


Paul doin the pimp lean


Heading out

I found out that wearing crocs and driving an M roadster dont go together.....in my 335, no problem.

Neat little car.....feels very nimble!

nice car, congrad. i never realized that Z3 looks soooo tiny.

i think the best car to learn stick in is S2k (or any honda pretty much). u can NOT stall that car and you will NOT find a easier and smoother manual transmission than what honda makes.

Would those be the same "drag" Crocs you wore to MIR? You could trap a bear under those things!

Car looks great!
Very nice choice. Looks like a blast to drive.
Enjoy.
Can you fit golf clubs in that thing?

havent really tried yet, but I will. Probably have to take my woods out of the bag, and I hope they fit in the trunk. Otherwise, I'll have company in the cockpit

I would appreciate a text w/ a heads up when you or the wife is on the road in this thing.......I want ample time to turn around and head the other direction .


side note- are you coming on the summer cruise to PA? Are you driving this?

still not sure about the summer tour just yet; it'll probably be a last minute decision. i wanna go, but not sure i can get everything to line up perfectly that weekend since Frank and I are doing the Audi event at Summit Point on Sunday.

if I do go, not sure what car I'll take, may depend on weather
