Life is a Highway....with some Sweet Wheels!

I've never really been the type of girl to swoon over the suave guy that drives a hot car, or the bad-ass boy that rides a motorcycle, but on Saturday night I was taken for a spin in a brand new silver Nissan 350z coupe and suddenly understood why it drives some women crazy. First off, the car is so low to the ground that when you sit in it, you feel as if you're only inches from the ground. That's because you are. The first thing I noticed about the interior (other then the soft plush black leather), was that it was a stick shift. Hot. I don't know what it is about a guy that drives standard, but I gotta say - loves it!
So, into reverse and out of the driveway we go. We happend to be in a part of Dundas that has some fairly long, deserted roads (alright, it was 12:30am and ALL streets in Dundas are deserted by this time) so we were able to take full advantage of the car's 300 HP and 250lb-ft torque. I'm not gonna lie - it was a ton of fun - takin' the corners at speeds I dare not come close to in my mum's '97 Ford Escort. Fishtailing has never felt so good. I think I now have a thing for hot cars.
Additionally, the same night, I was offered a ride on a motorcycle. This I declined. Partly because I'm a wuss and too scared of all the potential dangers, and partly because I didn't trust the guy with the bike as I had just met him that night. Perhaps at some point I'll muster up the courage to hop on the back of a hog, but for now I'm content with my new-found admiration for sweet rides.

On a side note, Italy totally kicked ass in World Cup semi-final action today defeating Germany by a score of 2 - nil in a game that lasted two overtime periods for a total of 120 minutes on the pitch. ITALY ALL THE WAY!!!! VIVA ITALIA!!!
