      lol

      Anyhow, over the weekend, there were several 991s (among lots of other things) parading past my house (I live on a very popular cruise route) and IMHO, the stock exhaust sounds plenty sexy. But then again, I even like the flat-4 whine of a base Impreza.

      I got to drive Tuna Canyon in February while visiting, from what I recall it wasn't exactly high speed. Sounds like the C2 driver was at fault, not his car.

      Agreed. Road looks like a really narrow one way road. If this is a two way road I can't imagine how you could safely take this quickly. Let alone pass someone coming the other way.

      It's a one way and you can definitely take it fast...unless you're slow. We were moving through it at a brisk pace, google doesnt give you a great view.

      Tuna Canyon road is one way if I recall. Goes down towards highway one.

      Lol. A well driven Accord could probably have kept up on that road let alone a 991.

      So just heard from my dealer that my car will be in Halifax on May 2nd. From there it's just a quick train ride to Toronto. Looks like I'll be getting it sooner than expected (May 30th original delivery date)

      Here was the ship it came over on:

      I would estimate that at most, you'll get it a week earlier.

      Purpose built ships are some of the weirdest looking things...Is that how it sits in the water fully loaded? (not talking about the tipped over cougar)

      It's gonna be a fun summer for you hawk. Right now I'm just looking forward to routine maintenance and a new head gasket.

      You stay away from Halifax or I'll intercept you in Truro, Nova Scotia.

      I'm already in Halifax. Let's see if I can get pictures of it from there. The autoport is like Disneyland. If I drive by, I'm doing like 20km/h, just drooling over what's parked there. Acres of cars, but the neat stuff is always by the road. They have a body shop there too. Big mean dogs though.

      May 2-4 comes early this year - oddly it's not on the 24th, as you might expect. Could be tight.

      I could Hawk Hawk's car before Hawk can. I'll try and throw a Bagel at it or something. What's the name of the ship?

      Then you can go to the dealer, complain someone took a photo of your car first and demand a TT-RS. Then charge back half the car because of the reduced value (because of the bagel). Am I doing TCL right?
