Queue up AC/DC intro to "For those about to rock (we salute you)"

The M5 is going to be pushed our of her winter storage garage 1st week of March

She is heading over to Motorworkswest in Wycoff NJ for fresh liquids, a few minor adjustments, a few tests, a fresh tank of gas, Then I will be arriving into NJ on March 16th (finally leaving Kabul!!!!!!!)

Once I have the keys I am driving from North Jersey down to New Orleans. visiting family, Then on to Austin Texas.

I am more excited about driving the car than I have been in a while.

I can not wait for some spirited driving opportunities. I remember when I drove up to New Jersey in 2009. It was a very nice drive. The car was immaculate and pulled when I wanted her to and it braked when I needed it to. It was a dream machine. The engine purred and the exhaust notes were unbelievable.

One area of note from the trip was in Pennsylvania, I came across one of those new Infiniti G37S cars and the guy kept racing up to my side and braking hard. over and over. He was getting on my nerves, Possibly causing a wreck had he continued. I guess we were doing about 75-80. I was in 5th gear. I downshifted (god that car sounds and responds so good at high RPM) I quickly hit 4th and was at a speed I had not anticipated, The actual speed is as important as the feeling. By the time I hit 5th, that little G37 was trying so hard, but fading fast. It felt so good to get away from that car so quickly. I slowed down in fear of a ticket, My heart was pumping and I just felt this overall rush of energy, but wanted to relax at the same time. I want at least one of those experiences on this road trip.
