Every Z I see around town (rare) is usually driven by 90 year old people. It's a sad thing. I get all happy when I see one, I pull up next to them at the light and great-grandma is leaning forward and two-handing the steering wheel.

How often are the tracks full? I was looking at Orlando Speedway and Daytona and I was curious if they often have dead days where I could likely have the track to myself?

I ask only because I'll be driving and reviewing press cars for my site, and wanted to experience some of the higher end machines on a track.

Im from the projects! Bunch of white haired people and very few kids. Its rough around here, old ppl walking around the hood with their pomeranian arm dogs and always seeing them rolling down the streets in their golf carts, yah, this part of Kissimmee is pretty tough!

OH impromptu meet in Jax this weekend, this is my friend and was also my best man in my wedding. So much temptation to buy the Z so im glad I did! haha

lol old people....I saw a yellow 370 on I-4 the other day. Had to work traffic a bit to catch him (middle aged couple) but there was an older white Saleen on his tail so I dropped a couple gears to let the FI exhaust announce my arrival (specifically for the stang...traffic was MUCH too heavy to consider anything BUT a greeting) but what I DIDN'T notice was the black C6 Z06 who took notice of my exhaust note and snuck up on me. Gotta LOVE that a 505 hp sportscar would pay that much attention to a little ole 6 cylinder.

What parts of town, damn you. You knew what I meant.

I see tons of 370Zs around University Park. But almost none in Windermere.

I was driving the other day and someone in an old civic was doing like 20mph under the limit and holding us up. Then they went even slower when they went to turn onto a side street, so as I was passing I gave a good rev on my FI exhaust to let them know of my displeasure. A rust-ridden 20 year old V6 mustang thought I was signaling that I wanted to race so he pulled up even then started reving his engine lol. I just looked over and laughed.

You guys are seeing mustangs in Florida? Yeah right!

I'm down near the DeSoto Raceway and I swear once a month they do some sort of Mustang night. INSANE!

Lol yeah every once in a while I'll get one that wants to race, usually a stock V6 or one of the Shelby ones just trying to embarrass me lol.
